I'm hoping that such information is released so that we the people may get to the very bottom about why and what happened on 1/6/21. There's nothing wrong with reading the truth, becuse that's what grown up adults are supposed to do. Read and digest information to make justifiability right what was wronged to the best of our abilities. (y)

The committee has focused, in part, on seeking information about whether the Trump White House and members of Congress played any role in encouraging the demonstrations, which interrupted the constitutionally mandated certification of electoral votes and unleashed a series of violent confrontations with the U.S. Capitol Police.



White House documents requested by the panel are identified by National Archives personnel and then sent to Biden and Trump lawyers. The first tranche was sent out Aug. 31, according to a person familiar with the transfer.

Trump has 30 days following the delivery of the documents to decide whether to object to their release, according to the statute. Even if he opposes turning them over, the Biden White House has decision-making authority and can release them, over Trump’s objections, after an additional 60 days has elapsed. Trump’s remaining option would be to go to court to try to halt the release, legal advisers said.

Washington Post, part of the dishonest MSM, the White House and Biden, part of the corrupt Deep State and part of the Globalist agenda, all controlled by George Soros, to dishonor the most honest President you all ever had, the right honorable Donald J Trump, may God bless him and keep him safe from the Commies, Democrats and all of them "Haters" out there.

The Honorable (and sorely missed) Donald J. Trump is probably thinking "Bring it on, Dems!"

(Of course, the decision will be made by Nancy and Chuck and others of that ilk. The frail gentleman in the Oval Office will ratify anything they put before him.)

If the Biden administration released any communications the WH engages in...just because someone asks for it...then the Biden administration would have a semi-reasonable justification to release Trump stuff. But it would STILL depend upon an agreement from Trump.

But we all know that the Biden administration will never do that. Hypocrisy abounds.

Keep in mind this: Biden has 30 days - then an additional 60 days to legally release said information based on any court battles that ensues / delayed by Trump.

I expect the same. However, being that it feels like these fact finding missions are being 'lost in space' it's good to learn that there's now an attempt to 1) have a conclusion by the 1/6 select committee to present to the White House and up to 90 days from then (?) in which we the people might have our chance to read their findings.

Desperation move to get the media focused on something - anything- other than his disasterous administration.
That disastrous admin is finally behind us. (y)

Probably more like DJT thinking "Those damn Dems are getting closer and closer to busting my corrupt lying chops."

I think it should be released immediately.

Documents created on tax funded equipment by federal employees belong to the American people, not the white house staff. Unless it's classified it should be available.

Executive privilege should apply until the term is over. Maybe give an outgoing president 30 days after leaving the WH to get his life in order and emigrate if be left too many smoking guns behind.

That goes no matter what party the president is from.

Desperation move to focus our attention elsewhere rather than deal with the topic of the OP

Nope. The current president literally gets to decide who gets to see classified information. And that can include "everyone."

We aren't talking about classified information. We are talking about privileged information.

Oh, no, he‘s not.

I think he’s huddling with his lawyers to see what options he has if he wants to try and challenge the release.

He may be planning on asking you to throw more money at him. He’s a billionaire. But he really needs your money now.

Don’t forget to uncheck the box.

No, we aren’t.

We’re talking about evidence of a conspiracy to void an election so your fuhrer could waltz in and declare marshal law.

He was dancing with glee at the prospect.
Jesus...

Dismissed.

More TDS from the Left. Pretty sad, but liberal voted this shit show in.
What are you afraid of? Be honest. Afraid of seeing what is obvious? Ready to call anything you don't like "fake news"?

Many are scared, what they will find?
It does not matter what they find that may tarnish Trump. Kerist if it was shown some in the WH Admin played a part in the attack, prior and during, well we know how Trump sycophants will respond

Now President Biden, I know it grates on many Rs reading that.
Trump lost to a as he called President Biden a loser

When you have party leadership calling the attack on the Capitol a tour, just another big R lie
