Supreme Court rejects Trump and allows Congress access to hidden January 6 uprising documents

Donald Trump cannot block the release of White House documents about the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol, the Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday.

The House committee investigating the insurgency fought the former president for access to the archives, which include diaries and visitor logs.

Mr. Trump had argued that the documents, now stored in the National Archives, should be kept confidential under executive privilege.

In October, the Biden administration declined to exercise executive privilege over the records, paving the way for their release, prompting Mr Trump to take issue.

A month later, a federal court ruled against the former president’s efforts to block the release, a decision upheld by a federal appeals court in December.
