Joe Biden is rejecting another executive privilege claim by Donald Trump as he tries to invoke the right in order to withhold the White House visitor logs from the House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot.
In a letter sent to the National Archives on Tuesday, Biden’s White House Counsel Dana Remus told the archivist of the U.S. David Ferriero the agency should provide the material to the panel within 15 days.
Former President Trump is attempting to invoke executive privilege to keep the panel form obtaining the logs, just as he did with other White House documents that were turned over to the committee earlier this month.
The White House plans to inform Trump Wednesday morning of the rejection for his executive privilege claim.
Trump could try to block or slow the release of the logs like he did with other White House documents and materials.

NOW, I want EVERY past President’s visitor logs published.
I think the Bush’s, Clinton’s, and Obama’s would be very enlightening.
