Supreme Court rejects Trump’s bid to shield records from Jan. 6 committee

The Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected former President Trump’s bid to block a trove of his administration’s records from being handed to the Jan. 6 House committee.

The ruling came in an unsigned, one-paragraph order. Justice Clarence Thomas, a staunch conservative, was alone in indicating that he would have granted Trump’s request.

The move clears the way for congressional investigators to receive a batch of Trump-era schedules, call logs, emails and other requested documents that the committee says could illuminate key circumstances surrounding the deadly Capitol riot.


“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.

    Notice that “his” justices weren’t so loyal to Trump.

    It is curious though that Justice Thomas did not agree with his colleagues. He also did not agree in the election lawsuit the Court rejected. This has started a number of rumors, particularly about his wife who is allegedly an avid Trumpy and who may have helped in the January 6 coup attempt.
