WH formally rejects TFG's request to protect specific documents from being given to 1/6 committee

The White House formally rejected the latest request by former President Donald Trump to assert executive privilege to shield from lawmakers a subset of documents that has been requested by the House committee investigating January 6, and set an aggressive timeline for their release.

The latest letter came after the Biden administration informed the National Archives on Friday that it would not assert executive privilege over a tranche of documents related to January 6 from the Trump White House. When the White House sent its first letter last week, the former President had not formally submitted his objections yet. The latest response from the White House counsel is more of a technicality in response to the request from Trump regarding the subset of documents, according to a person familiar, reaffirming the decision already made by President Joe Biden not to assert executive privilege.

The letter sent Friday, and released on Wednesday, from White House counsel Dana Remus to Archivist of the United States David Ferriero requests that the documents be released "30 days after your notification to the former President, absent any intervening court order."

After that decision was reported, Trump wrote to the National Archives, objecting to the release of certain documents to the committee on the grounds of executive privilege.

8. Second Letter from Dana A. Remus, Counsel to the President, to David Ferriero, Archivist of the Unit




October 8, 2021

David Ferriero
Archivist of the United States
National Archives and Records Administration 700 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W.
Washington, D.C., 20408

Dear Mr. Ferriero,

I write in response to your communication of October 8, 2021, informing us that former President Trump has asserted executive privilege with regard to a subset of documents requested by the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol, and requesting President Biden’s views. President Biden has considered the former President’s assertion, and I have engaged in additional consultations with the Office of Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice. For the same reasons described in my earlier letter, the President maintains his conclusion that an assertion of executive privilege is not in the best interests of the United States, and therefore is not justified as to any of the documents provided to the White House on September 8, 2021. Accordingly, President Biden does not uphold the former President’s assertion of privilege.

The President instructs you, in accord with Section 4(b) of Executive Order 13489, to provide the pages identified as privileged by the former President to the Select Committee. In light of the urgency of the Select Committee’s need for the info1mation, the President further instructs you to provide those pages 30 days after your notification to the former President, absent any intervening court order.

Sincerely,

Dana A. Remus
Counsel to the President

10. Objecting to what...?

“…objecting to the release of certain documents…”

Oh, dear. Which documents might those be?
