US court temporarily blocks release of January 6th records

A US Federal Appeals Court has temporarily blocked the release of records sought by an investigation committee, investigating the January 6th Capitol riot.

The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Thursday granted an administrative stay sought by former President Donald Trump.


The stay is intended to give the court time to consider Trump’s arguments against the release of the files.

The order delays the release of the documents until the end of the month, which were originally intended to be handed over today.

The appeals court set arguments in the case for November 30th.


The House is seeking Trump’s call logs, draft speeches and other documents related to January 6th.

Congress has sought the records to gain a better understanding of the January 6th riots at the US Capitol.
