Biden Administration Calls for Trump’s Presidential Documents to be Turned Over to Congress

Yesterday in a court filing, the Biden Administration said that the house select committee’s investigation into the riots is needed to fully understand former President Trump’s role in the attack and argues that his presidential records should be turned over to Congress. Lawyers from the Justice Department said that the House has ‘sufficient reason’ to try to learn what Trump and others knew before the violence. The filing comes as the former president tries to overturn a lower-court decision to keep the records secret. Previously the Biden administration said it would not assert executive privilege to protect Trump-era residential records because of the ‘unique and extraordinary’ nature of the Capitol Riots.
