TRUMP APPEALS TO U.S. SUP CT REGARDING JAN 6 COMMITTEE SEEKING WHITE HOUSE DOCUMENTS

Donald Trump filed a petition w U.S. Supreme Court 12-23-21 seeking to argue an appeal regarding his right, as a former President, to not turn over documents requested by Jan 6 committee pursuant to the doctrine of executive privilege. The issues may include (1) a former president's right to assert executive privilege; and (2) the compelling need for the privilege, if it exists, to be overcome by the request for information. The committee seeks an early hearing date; if the GOP retakes the house majority in November 2022, the committee could lose efficacy if not be disbanded. Featuring Joan Biscupic CNN legal analyst, and Margaret Hoover, a Republican Consultant also a CNN contributor.
