On Tuesday, a federal judge ruled to unseal January 6 records from the White House.  Former President Donald Trump wants to keep the records private via executive privilege. He does not want a congressional panel getting access. Instead, the courtside with the congressional committee. 

House Democrats are investigating Trump’s role in the January 6 riots. The committee wanted to see for themselves all of the former President’s communications and activities leading up to the riot.

The January 6 Capitol riot left a mess in the nation’s capital and caused at least five deaths. It also brought Congress to its knees as lawmakers had to postpone a certification and evacuate for safety.

Judge Orders Turnover of January 6 Records To House Select Committee

As a result of the ruling from Judge Tanya S. Chutkan, the House should expect the White House to turn over copies of the January 6 records by Friday. In a blistering 39-page opinion, Chutkan ordered the release of the documents.

“The court holds that the public interest lies in permitting…the combined will of the legislative and executive branches to study the events that led to and occurred on January 6 and to consider legislation to prevent such events from ever occurring again,” Chutkan wrote. 

The US District Court (District of Columbia) judge also scored the events that happened after the elections. She said that the January 6 riots were an “attempt to prevent the lawful transfer of power” between administrations. Chutkan also noted that the transition this year was the first time since 1860 that it was not peaceful.

Trump Lawyers File Appeal to Prevent Release of January 6 Records

Upon receiving the decision, Trump’s lawyers quickly filed an appeal. “The battle to defend Executive Privilege for President’s past, present & future—from its outset—was destined to be decided by the Appellate Courts,” Trump spokesperson Taylor Budowich tweeted.

“Trump remains committed to defending the Constitution & the Office of the Presidency, & will be seeing this process through.”

Trump lawyer Jesse Binnall said in a court filing on Monday that the current situation necessitates executive privilege. He said that the “disagreement between an incumbent President ” and his political rival successor is the reason for executive privilege.

The case involves “the ability of presidents and their advisers to reliably make and receive full and frank advice,” BInall added. Decisions should come with having to accommodate political objectives.

In contrast, President Joe Biden insists that a President’s executive privilege starts and ends with the presidency. Once the president leaves office, executive privilege automatically becomes nonexistent. 

Emergency Request To Seal January 6 Records Also Denied

Last Monday, Judge Chutkan denied an emergency request by Trump’s lawyers to prevent the House committee from receiving the documents. She said that move was premature as she has yet to rule on the case.
