A US court stopped the publication of documents that could implicate Trump in the attack on the Capitol.
The House committee investigating the January 6 assault on Parliament had already obtained the permission of President Joe Biden to audit the private texts of the White House.
A United States court on Thursday accepted former President Donald Trump's claim to temporarily halt the release of White House documents that could implicate him in the Jan.6 attack on Capitol Hill.
The House committee requested the documents investigating the assault on the congressional headquarters that left five people dead, and a district judge ordered their release Tuesday.
For its part, the Court of Appeals for the circuit of the federal capital issued an administrative order on Thursday that gave the judges more time to examine Trump's petition and scheduled the presentation of the appeal's oral arguments for November 30.
The three-judge panel specified that the measure "should not be construed in any way as a decision on the merits" of the case.
On January 6, hundreds of violent Trump supporters invaded Congress. They delayed a joint session to confirm that Joe Biden had won the November 2020 election and would become president.
Biden has already approved the release of the records, which are housed in the National Archives. The House panel was due to receive its first batch of documents on Friday.
The House has requested more than 770 pages of documents, including records from Trump's top advisers and memos from his press secretary. The documents also include documents from former Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows, his former adviser Stephen Miller and his former deputy attorney Patrick Philbin.
Trump also hopes to block the publication of White House journals, their activities, travel, briefings, and phone call records.
Another package Trump doesn't want Congress to see is a memoir for his former press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, a handwritten note on the events of January 6, and a draft of the text of his "Save America" rally speech delivered just before. The attack.
In that speech, the Republican urged his followers to "fight like hell" to defend his false claim that his elections were stolen.
Earlier this week, the House committee issued subpoenas to Trump's top aides who allegedly conspired to reverse his defeat in a "war room" at a luxury hotel in Washington and some of his top lieutenants, including McEnany and Miller.
