White House blocks Trump attempt to withhold documents related to Jan 6 attack

The White House on Friday formally blocked an attempt by Donald Trump to withhold documents from Congress related to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol when he was U.S. president.

Press secretary Jen Psaki said President Joe Biden had authorized the National Archives, a government agency that holds records from Trump’s time in office, to turn over an initial batch of documents requested by the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee investigating the riot.
