Supreme Court Denies Trump Plea to Block Jan. 6 Records Request

The Supreme Court has officially rejected former President Trump’s request to block records from being handed over to the House Select Committee investigating Jan. 6. Justice Clarence Thomas was the lone dissenter but offered no opinion in the unsigned ruling.

The move clears the way for the House committee to obtain Trump-era schedules, call logs, emails, and other requested documents they say are needed in their investigation.

The Hill reports:

The committee said it had begun receiving records Wednesday night just hours after a ruling that chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) and Vice Chair Liz Cheney (R-Wy.) hailed as “a victory for the rule of law and American democracy.”

“Our work goes forward to uncover all the facts about the violence of January 6th and its causes,” they said in a joint statement, emphasizing that their effort aims “to ensure nothing like that day ever happens again.”

The justices wrote that although the unprecedented dispute between a former president and lawmakers raised “serious and substantial concerns,” the Washington, D.C.,-based federal appeals court had suitably analyzed the issues at hand.

“Because the Court of Appeals concluded that President Trump’s claims would have failed even if he were the incumbent, his status as a former President necessarily made no difference to the court’s decision,” the court wrote.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote separately to note his disagreement with part of the lower appeals court’s reasoning.

We need to see Biden’s records. He quietly had his records archived before he became VP. There was still enough in public domain for Peter Schweitzer to write a book about the Biden Crime Family.

Biden’s records like Trump’s are archived on a regular basis.
Biden’s records were certainly archived at the end of his two terms as vice president, and his time in the Senate.
There is no shortage of books on the Trump Crime Family, more to follow.
Peter Schweitzer is a nobody with a big mouth

Why can Democrats get Republicans records but Republicans cannot get anything from the NSA, CIA, FBI, DOJ or any other Democrat controlled organization and if they do get anything it is so heavily redacted it is useless. It does not seem to matter who is in control, the Republicans cannot get anything and as for law, the Democrats just do not respond. This government is DC is totally broken and corrupt, all of it Republicans and Democrats and especially the DOJ and FBI, all of the FBI field agents included.

We’ll see how much of a puke Trump is when he & the military take down the deep state. Biden & his administration are All headed to Gitmo.
News flash, happening now.
3 states have confirmed fraud against Trump. This is all he needs to be reinstated. In fact he’s still our president. Some people can’t handle the truth. Name one thing that Biden did to better our country.

The National Guard reports to the Commander and Chief not the Speaker of the House.
Keep in mind that the National Guard is well trained in use of fully automatic assault weapons?
How many would have died?
Trump did not want the National Guard there, just Trump “Patriots”
National Guard deployment can have have unintended consequences.
Deployment at Kent State was the beginning of the end of the Vietnam War (the American War against the people of Vietnam).
Go Guard, making people dead is Job One.

Albert, you are one big liar and one weak puke! You, Albert know nothing! Pelosi was in control of protecting the Capitol with the Capital Police….gee, Albert…where were they? The National Guard was there…ordered there by President Trump…but Pelosi didn’t want them there, that would ruin her plan. Remember, Pelosi let the NG sleep in garages…that is the weak puke she is! Get your facts right, puke Albert!

The Supreme Court is useless except for a few. They are afraid of the Democrats. No one should answer any questions from the sham 1/6,committee until Pelosi, Sargent of Arms and the DC mayor come clean. Pelosi started this mess. People know what she did. Come on Trouble Maker come clean.

I can’t believe the SCOTUS made that ruling! Very sad. We’re not going to have a country left when Biden is finished messing it up. And the highest court in the country goes along with it. Why aren’t they ruling on all the laws Biden is breaking, starting with the southern border. Instead they’re still on the witch hunt after our best President.
