In a victory for the rule of law and the separation of federal powers, the Supreme Court said Wednesday that a bipartisan congressional committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection can review some of former President Donald Trumps White House records.

The documents may fill in some blanks about Trumps involvement in any planning for the Jan. 6 siege. A number of Trumps senior aides who had been involved with efforts to stage a coup by overturning the 2020 presidential election have also drawn the Jan. 6 committees attention. On Tuesday, it subpoenaed documents and testimony from Trump advisers Rudolph Giuliani, Sidney Powell, Jenna Ellis and Boris Epshteyn; it has previously subpoenaed Steve Bannon and Trumps former chief of staff, Mark Meadows.
