A US appeals court has suspended a decision by another court under which investigators in the Capitol storming could have seen documents from the administration of former President Donald Trump.
The appeals court made this decision, Thursday, in response to a request by Trump’s lawyer to freeze the implementation of the previous judicial decision, while the Trump team’s appeal against it continues.
On Tuesday, the District of Columbia District Court issued a decision that enabled investigators to access White House records of Trump’s activities and officials of his administration on January 6, the day the former president’s supporters stormed the Capitol Building, resulting in deaths and injuries.
It is noteworthy that the US House of Representatives formed a special committee to investigate the storming of the Capitol, and it summoned dozens of Trump aides and officials in his administration to testify.
The committee is also seeking access to Federal Archives documents on the work of the White House and President Trump during those events.
