This sets up a potential legal battle to decide whether the privileged documents eventually get released. 

The White House on Friday blocked a legal attempt by the Trump administration to prevent certain documents from being sent to the House Select Committee on Jan. 6.

Trump responded to the Biden administration’s decision in a statement, saying that this sets a dangerous precedent for future congressional committees to overcome executive privilege.

“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,” Trump said in the statement.

“With our country collapsing, with our Military disgraced, with our borders nonexistent, when will the American people have had enough.” He concluded.

Trump’s statement comes as the House committee investigating the Capitol breach on Jan. 6 requested documents from the White House concerning the event.

According to USA Today, this sets up a potential legal battle to decide whether the privileged documents eventually get released.

Bob Woodward says he’s never seen so much political strength from a former president as Trump has

“Trump’s popularity, his power in the Republican party has grown since he left office. It has not shrunk,” said Woodward

Famed journalist Bob Woodward says he’s never seen a former president retain as much political strength as Donald Trump.

“What’s going on now really is an iron curtain of obedience to Trump,” told CNN. “It’s not just polite deference, it is obedience. And it really is an iron curtain because it’s so strong.”

Woodward spoke after Trump’s appearance at a rally Saturday night alongside Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, a mainstream Republican running for election at age 88.

“These people, like Senator Grassley, can count,” Woodward said. “They can look at the polls. They go to their home states, they talk to constituents. And there’s tens of millions of people who support Trump.”

During the rally, Trump awarded Grassley his customary “complete and total endorsement.”

Grassley later commented that it “wouldn’t be too smart” not to accept “the endorsement of a person that’s got 91 percent of the Republican voters in Iowa.”

A recent Iowa poll shows Trump with  a higher approval rating in the state than he ever did as a sitting president. And despite Grassley’s popularity as a senator – 81% of GOP voters in Iowa support him – he is not as popular as the ex-president.

“This is a political strength that we have rarely seen, never seen from a former president … Let’s face it: Trump’s popularity, his power in the Republican Party has grown since he left office. It has not shrunk,” said Woodward.

Trump to hold weekend rally in key balloting state Iowa

Iowa Cause is the first-in-nation balloting in each presidential election cycle

Former President Trump is scheduled to host a rally Saturday evening in key presidential balloting state Iowa, a move considered another significant sign that he’ll seek reelection again in 2024. 

The Iowa Cause is the first-in-nation balloting in each presidential election cycle, with the Republican and Democratic winner of the balloting getting an early lead on the field of candidates, toward winning the respective party nomination. 

The turnout and crowd reaction at the rally is also expected to be a good indication on whether Trump’s support extends beyond loyalists and into the more traditional GOP base. 

He will hold the event at the state fairgrounds in Des Moines, the traditional stomping grounds for candidates and potential candidates when the election cycle begins, another likely message that he will seek the White House again in 2024.

Trump in August hired two political consulents in Iowa – Eric Branstad and Alex Latcham – to work for his political action committee, according to The Wall Street Journal.

A Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll released earlier this week showed the 75-year-old Trump now higher favorability ratings in the state than he did as president.

Fifty-three percent of Iowans – including 91% of Republicans – viewing him positively. However, the survey didn’t ask Republicans whether they would like to see him run again.

Rich Schwarm, a former Iowa state GOP chairman, told the news outlet there is strong support among the Republican voters there for Trump’s policies. There are, however, mixed feelings about “whether he is the strongest messenger” for the party. “I think he would be the front-runner here if he were to run,” he said.

Mark Lundberg, a former Republican chairman in northwest Iowa’s Sioux County told the news outlet: “My preference is that Donald Trump has a role in the direction of our country and party and some influence over candidates, but I think it would be best for someone else to become the standard-bearer.”

Trump slams DOJ plan to monitor parents fighting ‘radical left school boards’ over CRT in classrooms

Parents “have a voice as to how their children” are to be “brought up and educated,” the former president reaffirmed. 

Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday denounced the Justice Department for asking the FBI to investigate parents who are pressuring school boards to stop teaching critical race theory, saying it was part of a larger leftist agenda to sideline moms and dads from having a say over their children’s future.

“It’s very tough because the parents are very wounded by what’s taken place by, in many cases, radical left school boards,” Trump said during an interview with Just the News on the John Solomon Reports podcast. “And you would certainly think they have a voice — and they have a voice — as to how their children are going to be educated, brought up and educated.”

DOJ’s instruction to the FBI amounts to a “very tough stance,” the former president said during a wide-ranging interview. “There’s no question about it. I heard that late last night. And I was somewhat surprised by it. But nothing surprises me too much anymore.”


Trump also denounced the Biden administration for its failures in Afghanistan and on other foreign policy matters, saying China was taking advantage of American weakness by flying warplanes near Taiwan.


“I can guarantee you that if I were president, they would not have done it,” said Trump. “They wouldn’t be sending planes over right now. For four years you never heard anything. Taiwan wasn’t even mentioned.”
