Transcript for DOJ on deadline to handover White House records to Jan. 6 committee
- Breaking news tonight as we're on the air. A major new development in the investigation into the January 6th attack at the Capitol. Just moments ago, the Supreme Court now denying former president Trump's attempt to block the House Committee from reviewing White House documents. So let's get right to Chief Washington correspondent, Jonathan Karl. And John, of course, this would appear to be a big blow to the former President. - A big blow to the former President and a major victory to the January 6th committee. Giving them access to documents, White House documents that would normally be under seal for years-- in some cases decades. Documents that Donald Trump fought mightily to keep secret. The committee will now have access to White House visitor logs, phone logs, communications between top aides. They have also asked for video and photo records. Presumably, they will get those as well. So this really could give the committee new insights-- significantly new insight into the actions of Donald Trump and his inner circle in and around January 6th. And David, another key point here. This is a major defeat for Donald Trump. The court 8 to 1, including all three justices that he put on the Supreme Court rejecting his request. - Jonathan Karl with the breaking headline from Washington tonight. Thank you, John.
