Trump's lawyers asked a federal appeals court for a temporary stay so that he can appeal to turn over documents to the 1/6 Committee.
Hundreds of records are set to be released this week to the House committee investigating the Capitol riot.
Donald Trump asked an appeals court to block the National Archives from sharing his presidential records with the House Jan. 6 committee.
But a Trump lawyer has signaled an intent to appeal the ruling, which raises novel issues about an ex-president’s executive privilege powers.
A federal appeals court on Thursday intervened to temporarily block the National Archives from handing over Trump administration records to the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S.
A federal appeals court on Thursday granted former President Donald Trump's request to pause the release of key White House records from his presidency to the House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the US Capitol, as he appeals a lower court's decision that he can't claim executive privilege to keep them secret.
What went on at a five-star hotel near the White House the day before the riot could be a window into how a Trump-directed plot to upend the election ended in violence at the Capitol.
With his poll numbers falling, President Jair Bolsonaro is already questioning the legitimacy of next year’s election. He has help from the United States.
The decision blocks a judge’s ruling that upheld President Biden’s authority to waive an ex-president’s claim to executive privilege as the case is being appealed.
Former President Donald Trump's attempt to withhold records from the House of Representatives related to the January 6 US Capitol attack based on executive privilege -- a claim rejected by President Joe Biden -- would present the US Supreme Court with a novel legal dilemma.
The fundamental question before the January 6 committee is whether they will ever, really, get to the bottom of what former President Donald Trump said and did that day -- and in the days leading up the riot at the US Capitol.
Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is facing new pressure to cooperate with the House Select Committee investigating January 6 after he was notified Thursday that President Joe Biden will not assert executive privilege or immunity over documents and testimony requested by the panel, according to a copy obtained by CNN.
The National Archives had been preparing to deliver the documents on Friday, but the three-judge panel will instead hear arguments in the matter on Nov. 30.

- It accepted the list of original resource URIs from the output of the StoryGraph Toolkit, and queried the Memento Aggregator to find as many mementos as possible
- For resources that were not already mementos, it submitted them to web archives with ArchiveNow
- It analyzed all mementos to automatically discover the most frequent sumgrams and named entities present in the overall story
- It analyzed all images in these mementos to automatically select the best image for the overall story
- It then formatted the data for the story based on all of this input
- Raintale took the input from Hypercane and rendered the final product with information supplied by MementoEmbed
