Biden declines Trump’s request to withhold documents from House committee
These days, you might see some titles of Biden exposing Trump on social media.
Congress is looking for definitive answers on what prompted a mob of Donald Trump’s supporters to rush the Capitol on January 6, seemingly pointing to a historic showdown between the former president and his successor in the White House.
The fight lines became clearer on Friday, when President Biden rejected former President Trump’s request to block documents from the House committee investigating the rebellion, citing the severity of the attack on democracy.
In a letter to the National Archives on Friday, Trump said that the records the committee sought included information that was shielded by “executive and other privileges, including but not limited to: not limited to presidential communications, the deliberation process, and attorney-client privileges.” He also claimed that he would assert the same privilege in the event of any request in the future.
Trump picked out more than 50 documents searched by the select committee that he claims are protected by executive privilege, pledging to take “all necessary and appropriate steps to defend the Office of the Presidency” if the committee finds other privileged information.
Trump’s formal objection now causes a limited amount of time during which he must decide whether to take the decision to the court.
Bob Bauer, who used to serve as White House counsel under President Barack Obama, said that “A former president has a chance to review the materials, to raise issues of privilege and, if the former and the current presidents cannot reach some agreement, to take the dispute to the courts.”
Trump claimed the Biden administration was making use of the investigation to undercut his future political prospects. “This Committee’s fake investigation is not about January 6th any more than the Russia Hoax was about Russia.”
“This is about using the power of the government to silence ‘Trump’ and our Make America Great Again movement, the greatest such achievement of all time,” Trump stated.
Biden claims that he will be exposing Trump’s traitorous ass
Jen Psaki, White House press secretary said at a White House briefing Friday that Biden’s decision reflected the gravity of the assault.
“The president’s dedicated to ensuring that something like that could never happen again, which is why the administration is cooperating with ongoing investigations,” Psaki said.
“The president has determined that an assertion of executive privilege is not warranted for the first set of documents from the Trump White House that have been provided to us by the National Archives.”
Biden’s decision was made after former White House strategist Stephen Bannon told the committee he will not respond to any request for documents and testimony.
Biden’s decision triggers at least 30 days for former President Trump to challenge the request in court before documents are published.
Legal experts believed that Biden, as the current president, is more likely to win the case in court. But they assumed the legal questions raised by this conflict are crucial.
Trump might face a legal of political conflict
According to federal law, former presidents require the sitting president to keep any documents created during previous administrations held by the National Archives. Trump’s next step will be to file a lawsuit against the archives, but he faces long legal difficulties.
The courts have never been clear about how much authority former presidents have to assert privileges when they leave office. But in reality, the views of the sitting president carry considerable weight.
The Supreme Court ruled in 1977 that the current president was “in the best position to assess the present and future needs of the Executive Branch.”
Furthermore, the privilege is not absolute. Courts apply a balancing test to choose whether it should apply.
But the Supreme Court did not think that decisions of the sitting president always take priority over statements made by former presidents. According to Jonathan Shaub, an assistant professor of law at the University of Kentucky, legislation in this area remains uncertain, which could lead to a protracted challenge in court and could eventually delay the investigation.
Will Trump win the case?
After many failed Biden’s decisions and his policies, many people opt to believe Trump and his moves. More and more people who used to vote for Biden turned to anti-Biden. They believe that Trump will do the best for America.
