(ANSA) – Washington, Oct. 08 – Joe Biden has officially blocked Donald Trump’s attempt to withhold documents requested by a congressional committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol by his fans. The White House has informed the National Archives that it will not exercise executive privilege on behalf of the former president, paving the way for the papers to be obtained. American media reported it.
White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki confirmed the decision: “What the committee achieves is not an ordinary activity of the government … but it is a dark day in our democracy: context matters, too,” he explained.
Trump asked his former strategist Steve Bannon and three other former collaborators to disregard quotes from the parliamentary committee, arguing that the requested material was covered by an executive lien. But only the one who is still in charge can summon her. (Dealing).
