Supreme Court Dismisses Trump’s Appeal

The Supreme Court rejected former President Donald Trump’s appeal in his dispute with congressional investigators seeking access to White House records as part of a House panel’s investigation into the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot.

The court’s latest decision came in a brief unsigned order issued without comment.

It reportedly ends Trump’s legal effort to prevent the House panel from obtaining a batch of his administration’s records, including schedules, call logs and emails.

The order leaves intact a lower federal appeals court ruling that denied Trump’s assertion of executive privilege.

According to The Hill, the Jan. 6 committee has not established a hard deadline for completing its investigation, but chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-MS) has said the panel hopes to wrap up by early spring.
