Afterall, this is not a game, especially given the weighty questions at issue,” Trump’s lawyers wrote Monday night.
The Archives has already said it will turn over records unless a court order prevents it, beginning with White House call logs, video logs and schedules related to January 6 as well as three pages of handwritten notes from Trump’s then-chief of staff Mark Meadows.
