Hill's Jan. 6 committee includes Trump White House in first document requests

1 100 0

The select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection on Wednesday sent a flurry of requests to federal agencies for records related to the attack, including communications from the Trump White House.

It’s the panel’s first step to seek documents on how the U.S. government handled the chaos. Set up by House Democrats with two anti-Trump GOP members, the select committee is escalating its investigation even as the House breaks for a monthlong recess.

The committee announced that it plans to seek records from the executive branch related to the attack and its run-up — including "communications within and among the White House and Executive Branch agencies" on and before Jan. 6.

The requests also sought records on attempts to place politically loyal personnel in positions across the government after the election, the planning, organization and response to Jan. 6 and earlier, and attempts to overturn the rule of law and overturn the 2020 election.
