The U.S. Department of Justice bans the release of documents linking Trump to the Capitol invasion

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Court of Appeals has suspended the release of Donald Trump’s White House documents Friday in connection with the January 6 attack on Capitol Hill. Last August, the House committee that investigated the attack on the US Congress demanded detailed records of the then President’s movements and meetings. The Democratic Majority Commission has demanded a series of documents from seven federal agencies to investigate an attack by a mob of Republican presidential supporters to prevent Joe Biden from running for president.

The court ruling gives judges more time to consider Trump’s petition, and the oral arguments for the appeal are scheduled for November 30. The three judges, who decided to suspend the issuance of the documents, wanted to make it clear that the action “should not be construed as a decision in any way” based on the merits of the case.

In an emergency, Trump’s lawyers asked that the documents be kept confidential for the time being, and that all parties be required to report to court next week.

Trump’s legal team said in their case that the case raised important new questions, such as whether a former president could sue an heir to keep government records in Congress. According to Trump’s lawyers, if the documents are released as planned this Friday from 6 p.m., the president’s organization will be irreparably damaged.
