President Joe Biden has set aside vehement protests by his predecessor in office, President Donald Trump, following the decision of the White House to turn over sensitive information to an investigative panel.
The January 6 Panel is currently investigating the root causes of what led to the storming of the Capitol by a mob on the eve of President Biden’s inauguration.
Trump who has been claiming “executive privilege” is challenging the resolve of US investigators to persuade Biden’s White House to release details embedded in visitor logs under his watch.
But in a letter to the National Archives, a White House counsel said Mr. Biden had rejected Mr. Trump’s claims that the visitor logs were subject to executive privilege.
The letter said that “in light of the urgency” of the committee’s work, the agency should provide the material to the committee within 15 days.
