President Joe Biden has given the go-ahead to the National Archives and Records Administration to hand over a new batch of documents from former President Donald Trump’s White House to the House committee investigating the Capitol riot, The Washington Post reports.
In a letter released Wednesday by the archives, the Biden administration declined to assert executive privilege over the documents after the Supreme Court rejected Trump’s effort to block their release.
It’s unclear what documents exactly will be included in the latest batch, but Trump previously — and unsuccessfully — asserted privilege over daily presidential diaries, schedules, drafts of speeches, remarks and correspondence concerning the events of Jan. 6 as well as the files of his top advisers and lawyers, and talking points on the issue of overturning the results of the 2020 election, according to a review of court documents.
The committeehas also re-upped requests made by other House committees for all documents and communication relating to calendars, schedules, and meetings or events attended by Trump, andall video communications recorded of Trump speaking on Jan. 6, including videos that have not been made public.
