Biden’s administrator rejects more claims of executive privilege that former President Trump wants to make on documents sought by the House select committee.
The action means the National Archives will turn the documents over to the committee investigating the riot on Capitol Hill on January 6.
The Hill quotes a letter written by White House attorney Dana Remus that says President Biden consulted with the Department of Justice and that they determined that Trump’s request for executive privilege was “not justified “.
Biden has already given the National Archives the green light to turn over the first set of documents requested by the committee, but Trump is now continuing in a last-ditch attempt to keep the documents secret.
Speaking on Face the nation from CBSHouse Rep. Bennie Thompson and Mississippi Democrat have revealed they will subpoena former President Trump if the evidence leads them to him. Representative Thompson said there were elements related to white supremacy during the events of that day based on the display of Confederate flags and anti-Semitic symbols.
Adding that Facebook is also “working” with the select committee of January 6 to provide the requested information regarding its investigation.
“At this point, Facebook is working with us to provide the necessary information that we have requested,” Thompson told “Face the Nation.”
