When he was president, Donald Trump thought that the best way to show he was working hard was to be photographed behind massive stacks of paper. Press secretary Kayleigh McEnany had the same strategy, as she was often seen at pressers carrying massive binders. Now the House 1/6 Committee is trying to get their hands on those books.
In a report for Politico, Kyle Cheney writes, “the former president has sought to block about 750 pages out of nearly 1,600 identified by officials as relevant to the Jan. 6 investigation. Among them are hundreds of pages from ‘multiple binders of the former press secretary [Kayleigh McEnany] which is made up almost entirely of talking points and statements related to the 2020 election.”
The report continued:
“Even assuming the applicability of executive privilege, however, the documents may assist the Select Committee in understanding efforts to communicate with the American public, including those who attacked the Capitol on January 6, on the subjects of alleged voter fraud, election security, and other topics concerning the 2020 election.”
