Megathread Megathread: Supreme Court rejects Trump’s request to block release of documents to Jan. 6 Committee

2.0k Upvotes

This evening, the US Supreme Court rejected an appeal by former President Donald Trump seeking to enjoin the Congressional January 6th commission from reviewing communications made by the former President while in office in the lead up to the January 6, 2021 riot at the Capitol. Former President Trump had sought to assert executive privilege over these communications to shield them from review by the commission, but the court of appeals denied this request. The decision split 8-1, with only Justice Clarence Thomas indicating that he would have granted the application for a stay.
