image for Trump sues to keep White House records secret, claiming executive privilege

(CNN) Former President Donald Trump filed a lawsuit Monday in DC District Court against the House select committee investigating the January 6 insurrection and the National Archives in an effort to keep records from his presidency secret by claiming executive privilege.

The lawsuit from Trump is an attempt to block the work of the House committee as it investigates his actions before and during the siege of the Capitol.

The court action also marks his latest effort in a long and thorny fight against subpoenas from the Democratic-controlled US House.

The Biden administration has declined to assert executive privilege over a first tranche of Trump-era records, and Trump is currently opposed to the release of about 40 documents.

In the lawsuit, Trump argues the House committee is on a politically motivated "fishing expedition.".

Still, Trump's lawsuit against the Mazars subpoena stalled the House from getting records until after he left office -- and the records still aren't in the House Oversight Committee's hands.

According to the letter, Ferriero notified Trump that the archivist would disclose to the House committee all "responsive" records that President Trump determined were subject to executive privilege on November 12 "absent any intervening court order.". »
