Jan. 6 Panel Acquires Trump’s Visitor Logs
The National Archives has delivered former President Donald Trump’s White House visitor logs to the House Jan. 6 committee.
“Yesterday, the select committee received additional production of records from the National Archives,” a committee aide said. “This included records that the former president attempted to keep hidden behind claims of privilege.”
The National Archives also turned over records from former Vice President Mike Pence.
Trump had tried to block the release of the visitor logs citing executive privilege, but President Joe Biden rejected his claim “in light of the urgency” of the committee’s work and Congress’s “compelling need.”
Several courts, including the Supreme Court, have ruled against Trump’s attempts to block the release of various records to the committee.
