The United States Supreme Court has dealt another blow to former President Donald Trump. On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court sided with the United States House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack in their pursuit of documents from the Trump administration. The Supreme Court’s ruling will allow the committee to obtain 700 pages of activity logs, schedules, notes and other documents pertaining to their investigation of the Capitol Hill Riots.
“The Supreme Court’s action tonight is a victory for the rule of law and American democracy,” Reps. Bennie Thompson and Liz Chenney of the United States House Select Committee on the January 6 Attack stated.
“The Select Committee has already begun to receive records that the former President had hoped to keep hidden and we look forward to additional productions regarding this important information.”
Trump and his associates have continued to push back against the release of these documents, arguing that the investigation is politically motivated. However, it appears that they are fighting a losing battle. Within the last 48 hours, the House committee has also issued subpoenas for phone records tied to Eric Trump and Kimberly Guilfoyle. Also, New York Attorney General Letitia James has also released an update regarding her investigation of Trump’s activities in the Empire State. Among other things, James suggested that she found “significant evidence” fraud within his business endeavors.
Trump has not issued a statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision, the House committee’s subpoenas or the James’ latest statements.
