A federal appeals court on Thursday granted former President Trump's request to temporarily stop the release of documents to the Democrat-controlled House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
Trump's lawyers made the request earlier Thursday ahead of the Friday 6 p.m. for the select committee to receive 46 records, including White House call logs, visitor logs, drafts of speeches and three handwritten memos from Trump's then-chief of staff Mark Meadows, according to CNN.
The ruling temporarily block the National Archives from releasing the records.
