WATCH: January 6th Committee Will Likely Probe Trump’s Mishandling Of Documents, According To Judiciary Committee Member

Now a member of the House Judiciary Committee says that he believes the January 6th Committee will also be looking into this, since it’s directly relevant to their subpoena of certain documents, and Trump’s efforts to keep those documents out of the Committee’s hands.

Trump went all the way to the Supreme Court to keep the National Archives from handing over documents in response to a Congressional subpoena, but even before he was slapped down by the highest court in the nation, there are allegations he went to more extreme measures to keep documents private, including flushing and eating sensitive papers. (He denies it all.)

Still, the January 6th Committee has reportedly received some documents that were apparently shredded and taped back together, and as their investigation proceeds, Representative Joe Neguse (D-CO) says that he believes they’ll also delve into the document-destruction allegations, and report to the public.

“I think traditionally, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee as well as the House Judiciary Committee, would have joint jurisdiction over a matter like that, But I suspect in this instance, because it is part and parcel to the Select Committee’s investigation, right, that the Select Committee will likely further explore that and, I suspect, ultimately share what they find with the American public during the course of those hearings.”
