CONGRESS/INVESTIGATIONS/SUPREME COURT: “Lawyers for former President Donald Trump told the Supreme Court on Wednesday [December 29, 2021] that a Washington Post interview with the chairman of the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol shows the committee is trying to establish a criminal complaint against Trump, something the lawyers say is beyond the committee’s authority…
Lawyers for Trump have asked the justices to put on hold a unanimous ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, which rejected his assertions of executive privilege and his request to keep secret roughly 800 pages of his papers. President Joe Biden determined the material could be released to the committee.
Trump said the high court should take the case to determine whether that is proper.”
