The National Archives, in the absence of an injunction, intends to hand over the required documents to congressmen by November 12.
“An emergency petition of the plaintiff for a preliminary injunction for the time of consideration of the appeal or for an administrative injunction <…> rejected,” reads the resolution received in the electronic database of the instance. The corresponding decision was made by Judge Tanya Chutkan.
A day earlier, she rejected Trump’s request to block the disclosure of the documents. The former American leader filed an appeal and sent a petition to Chutkan with a request to postpone the entry into force of her decision for the time of consideration of the appeal in the case.
A request for disclosure of documents related to the actions of Trump and his aides in connection with the events of January 6 and at the disposal of the U.S. National Archives was previously sent by a special committee of the lower house of Congress, which is investigating the case of the storming of the Capitol. As the Associated Press reported, the National Archives, in the absence of an injunction, intends to hand over the required documents to congressmen by Friday, November 12.
