The next round of struggle to come to terms with the Capitol attack: The court decided to release important documents from the National Archives. Former US President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit against her.
A US federal appeals court has agreed to turn over files on the storming of the Capitol building in Washington. On Thursday, the court ruled a lower court, under which documents from the National Archives may be handed over to a congressional parliamentary inquiry. Former President of the United States Donald Trump, whose followers in January Capitol They stormed, may sue over the delivery of documents.
Trump will likely turn to the Supreme Court on the matter. The former president had invoked the so-called executive privilege in his lawsuit against handing over the files. This allows the president to keep some documents confidential. A federal court rejected that argument in November. The judge in charge said Trump’s executive powers are invalid for life.
Radical Trump supporters stormed the Capitol on January 6, when Biden was due to be certified as the winner of the November 3 presidential election there. The attack, which made headlines around the world, killed five people. The House of Representatives commission of inquiry is supposed to clarify the exact background to the attack.
