The Biden White House has again gone after Donald Trump.

The White House is officially blocking Trump from legally invoking executive privilege to move on from Democrats’ nasty January 6th witch hunt to target him.

“Releasing a letter from White House counsel to the National Archives, the White House has confirmed that President Joe Biden has formally rejected former President Donald Trump from invoking executive privilege on Jan. 6 documents,” Newsmax reported.

“Despite this, former White House strategist Steve Bannon is resolute on sticking to Trump’s privilege and wrote to the Jan. 6 Select Committee on Wednesday night to take it up with Trump’s legal counsel or the courts,” Newsmax added.

“The president maintains his conclusion that an assertion of executive privilege is not in the best interests of the United States, and therefore is not justified as to any of the documents provided to the White House on Sept. 8, 2021,” the Oct. 8 letter from White House counsel Dana Remus read.

“Accordingly, President Biden does not uphold the former president’s assertion of privilege,” the letter added.

The National Archives will be forced to turn over requested documents in an investigation of the Jan. 6 storming of the Capitol, barring further legal action.

In response, Trump said he had requested executive privilege by used to protect these documents.

“I write concerning requests for documents and records sent to your office on March 25, 2021 and August 25, 2021 by the Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol,” he said in a letter to Archivist of the United States David Ferriero. “The Committee requested an extremely broad set of documents and records, potentially numbering in the millions, which unquestionably contain information protected from disclosure by the executive and other privileges, including but not limited to the presidential communications, deliberative process, and attorney-client privileges.”

The 4th President of the United States issued two press releases on Friday on the matter.

“I have sent a letter to the [US] National Archives and Records Administration in defense of the Office of the Presidency, the Constitution, vital principles of separation of powers, and on behalf of our great Nation. The Radical Left Democrats tried the Russia Witch Hunt, they tried the fake impeachments, and now they are trying once again to use Congress to persecute their political opponents. Their requests are not based in law or reality – it’s just a game to these politicians. They don’t care about our Country or the American people,” he said in the first.

But after word came back that Biden said, in his own letter to the National Archives penned by White House Counsel Dana Remus that “President Biden has determined that an assertion of executive privilege is not in the best interests of the United States, and therefore is not justified as to any of the documents,” Trump had more to say.

“Biden has rejected our request to withhold White House information from the House Unselect Committee investigating the January 6th protest, but has not taken a stance on the insurrection that took place on November 3rd, often referred to as the Crime of the Century. This will put the current White House in a terrible position when the inevitable request for information comes concerning the massive corruption by Hunter Biden and the already well-documented crimes committed by the Biden family, the least of which are Hunter’s paintings selling for as much as $500,000 a piece. With our Country collapsing, with our Military disgraced, with our Borders nonexistent, when will the American people have had enough?” he said.
