Attack on the Capitol. Trump has filed a lawsuit to block access to documents

Former US President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit in federal court on Monday, demanding that the Congress committee investigating the January 6 attack on Capitol be barred from submitting documents from his presidency.

Trump’s case relates to a request made in August by the Special Commission of Inquiry into the National Archives to access a wide range of documents relating to the activities and contacts of the President and his allies before and after January 6th. According to the commission, these documents are intended to answer questions about the participation of presidential advisers in the organization and the coordination of dramatic events.

The commission’s proposal … aims to launch an unconstitutional inquiry into President Trump and his administration … and our laws will not allow such vicious, blatant actions against the former president and his close advisers. – It was written in the case.

Trump refers to the so-called “executive power” established by legal practice, the right of the president to refuse to hand over documents, in order to maintain the confidentiality of decisions made by the head of state. Usually, however, it is explained that it is only relevant to the current president. President Biden, however, did not object to sending the documents.

Trump’s case is another attempt by those under investigation to complicate the work of the House of Representatives. Last week, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon refused to testify, citing the executive ‘offer. He did so despite the fact that he was not properly employed at the White House in the wake of the riots. In response, the Commission for January 6 wants to report him to the prosecutor’s office, accusing him of not complying with the law.
