Capitol Insurrection Congress Donald Trump

Nancy Pelosi Dunks On Trump After SCOTUS Refuses To Let Him Hide Jan. 6 Documents

Earlier today, the United States Supreme Court ruled against failed, twice-impeached, one-term former President Donald Trump.

CNN reported:

“The Supreme Court said on Tuesday that it will not take up former President Donald Trump’s case challenging the disclosure of his White House documents to the House January 6 investigation, a formal conclusion to his unsuccessful bid to keep those records secret. The court had previously rejected Trump’s emergency request to block the National Archives from turning over the materials while the court considered whether to take up the case. The documents Trump was trying to block in court are already in the hands of the House Select Committee investigating January 6.”

Trump now has no further recourse and cannot withhold any documents or other information from the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection.

Shortly after the high court refused to take up the case, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) issued a statement that’s certain to enrage the ex-president:

“Today, the Supreme Court made resoundingly clear that no one is above the law – not even a former president who incited a deadly insurrection.

“By again rejecting the former president’s attempts to hide documents related to January 6th, the Court’s decision is a victory for the truth, for the rule of law and for the American people. Reviewing these documents is essential to gaining a full picture of the events leading up to, during and after the January 6th attack on our Democracy. Now that the Court has ended the former president’s unlawful and dangerous campaign to hide the truth from the American people, the House’s Select Committee to Investigate January 6th will continue its laser focus on finding the truth of that dark day and ensuring it never happens again.”

Everywhere he turns, Trump is losing in court He has to sit for a deposition in the civil case brought against him by New York Attorney General Letitia James and still facing the prospect of criminal charges in Manhattan and Georgia.
