Biden rejects Trump's bid to keep White House material from Jan 6 panel in No Holds Barred Political Forum Posted October 9 NO. FULL DISCLOSURE. Biden rejects Trump's bid to keep White House material from Jan 6 panel (msn.com) (Full article at above link) President Biden has rejected former President Trump's assertion of executive privilege to deny White House documents requested by January 6 select committee. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Friday that Mr. Biden "believes it to be the utmost importance for the American people to have a complete understanding of the events of that day to prevent them from happening again." The House January 6 select committee requested the documents from the National Archives in August, including all "documents and communications relating in any way to remarks made by Donald Trump or any other persons on January 6." Attorneys representing Mr. Trump had asked that the documents be withheld from the committee under the assertion of privilege, arguing that documents and communications related to a sitting president should be shielded from public oversight. But citing what it described as these "unique and extraordinary circumstances," the White House said, "Congress has a compelling need...to understand the circumstances that led to these horrific events." "The Documents shed light on events within the White House on and about January 6 and bear on the Select Committee's need to understand the facts." "The Radical Left Democrats tried the RUSSIA Witch Hunt, they tried the fake impeachments, and now they are trying once again to use Congress to persecute their political opponents," Mr. Trump said. "The Democrats are drunk on power, but this dangerous assault on our Constitution and important legal precedent will not work."
