The January 6 panel reached an agreement with the White House to postpone further document requests

Last week, former President Donald Trump asked the Supreme Court to bar the National Archives from changing records from his time in the White Hous


The House of Inquiry into Capitol Violence on January 6 has reached an agreement with the White House to postpone its request for hundreds of records from Trump administration officials.

President Joe Biden has chosen not to exercise his administrative right on behalf of former President Donald Trump in many of the documents the committee sought, but a recent agreement shows that he has no intention of changing it.

The agreements "reflect the ongoing efforts of the Executive Council and the Legislature to ensure that the legitimate needs of the Select Committee are met while maintaining fundamental rights in the Executive, such as the need for confidentiality in presidential decisions," wrote White House deputy lawyer Jonathan Su. in a letter to the written committee

The agreement significantly protects records that do not include Jan's events. 6 but included a request from a committee of documents from the Trump White House regarding the events of the day.

"The documents of the Select Committee agreeing to withdraw or postpone its application do not appear to be related to White House arrangements or to respond to the January 6 incidents, or to attempts to invalidate the election or prevent a peaceful transfer of power," he said.

Su wrote that in the committee, the documentation "should not compromise its ability to complete its investigation immediately."

The House of Representatives requested documents in March and August in the National Archives that it said were related to Trump's administration before, during and after the January 6 violence at the US Capitol, when a group of Trump supporters supported the building, trying to block his election victory. Trump has informed National Archives that he is vying for the top right.

Biden, however, concluded that this right should not be exercised. He went on to authorize the National Archives to translate the first collection of documents that fell under the broad category requested by the committee, which included Trump's actions and communications in Jan. 6, which included his rally at The Ellipse at the White House grounds and subsequent meetings. and communication throughout the day.

Last week, Trump asked the Supreme Court to bar the National Archives from changing records from his time in the White House to a committee.

The lower courts left earlier this month to hear Trump's case, but his lawyers told the Supreme Court that there was no rush because the next congressional meeting to count the election was more than three years old.
