Supreme Court Clears Way For Release of Presidential Records

Yesterday, the Supreme Court cleared the way for the release of presidential records from the Trump White House to the committee investigating the Capitol Riots. The order means that over 700 documents will be transferred to Congress that could shed light on the events leading up to the insurrection when hundreds of rioters converged on the Capitol attempting to stop certification of the presidential election results. Justice Clarence Thomas said that he would have granted former President Trump’s request to block the hand-over. No other justices made a public objection.
