Trump wanted to prevent a Democrat-controlled House Investigation Committee from receiving hundreds of documents, including a list of people who visited or called him on the day of the Capitol attack.
The more than 770-page document includes information about his former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, his former senior adviser, Stephen Miller, and his former deputy adviser, Patrick Philbin.
Trump also intended to keep the White House diary secret, recording his activities, travel, briefings, and phone calls.
Other documents that the former president does not want Congress to see are memos addressed to his former press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, a handwritten note on the events of January 6, and Trump's speech at a rally shortly before the attack. Draft

Trump's lawyers have already shown their willingness to appeal the decision, the Washington Post reported.
The House committee investigating the assault on Congress on Tuesday launched a new round of subpoenas from members of the former president's inner circle, including McEnany, who was his White House spokesman.
On January 6, thousands of supporters of the Republican president stormed the United States House of Representatives to block the electoral victory of Democrat Joe Biden.
Shortly before, Trump gave a speech to a crowd a few hundred meters from the Capitol. He again denounced, without proof, that he fraudulently lost the November 2020 presidential election.
The parliamentary investigation seeks testimony from officials close to the former president to shed light on what Trump knew about the assault before it occurred and what he did during and after it.
