Donald Trump is desperately trying to block Congress from getting access to the records of exactly what the then-president was doing on January 6th as the riots were unfolding at the Capitol building. Trump’s lawyer submitted a 26-page complaint arguing he shouldn’t have to comply with the requests from Congress because of “executive privilege.” The Trump team is especially upset with Joe Biden over this, arguing that he should be exerting executive privilege on Trump’s behalf, something the current POTUS said he will not be doing. Trump’s lawyer Jesse Binnall wrote in the complaint, “in a political ploy to accommodate his partisan allies, President Biden has refused to assert executive privilege over numerous clearly privileged documents requested by the committee.” Clearly, Trump is worried about legislators and the public at large finding out about what he was up to on the 6th of January. By all accounts, Trump was gleeful as he watched his supporters storm the Capitol and had his eyes glued to the television the entire time. He also was reluctant to call in the military and to issue a statement to tell his supporters to leave in peace. Instead, Trump tweeted disparaging remarks about Mike Pence in the crucial hours and said “these are the things and events that happen when a sacred landslide election victory is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away.” It’s no wonder why Trump is living in fear of these documents coming to light because they’ll certainly prove he was complacent and in dereliction of his duty.
