Trump asks Supreme Court to block Jan 6 docs release

Former President Donald Trump has requested that the US Supreme Court block the release of January 6-related documents being requested by an investigative House committee.

In an emergency petition filed on Thursday by his lawyers, Trump argued that releasing White House documents and communications with senior staff set a bad precedent – a legal argument his team had unsuccessfully made in the lower court in the past. 

The petition is seeking a review of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision to reject Trump’s request, which his lawyers argue gave the investigative congressional committee the “power” to “broadly seek the records of a prior presidential administration.” The ruling, they add, lacks “limiting principle.” The court argued, however, that Trump had provided “no basis” for there to be a legal rejection of the committee’s request.
