A three-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals will hear former President Donald Trump’s latest effort to stop the National Archives from turning over documents from around January 6 to the House.
But the handover is on hold pending the appeal.

Mark Meadows — will he answer questions?
The cat-and-mouse game with former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows continues. Rep. Adam Schiff, a California Democrat who’s a member of the House select committee, told CNN over the weekend that the committee will decide “this week” on whether it will refer Meadows for criminal contempt charges for defying a subpoena earlier this month, failing to turn over documents or appear for a deposition.
Former Justice Department official Jeffrey Clark earlier this month stonewalled the House select committee, responding to a subpoena demanding he appear for an interview with the panel, but not answering questions posed to him, sources familiar with his appearance told CNN at the time.
Democratic Rep. Pete Aguilar of California, another select committee member, told CNN’s Jim Acosta on Saturday that Meadows still has a “small window in which he can still comply here … But if he doesn’t comply, the committee has made very clear just as we did with Steve Bannon that we’re willing to use whatever means necessary.”
Committee members said recently that many of the questions for Meadows have nothing to do with Trump himself and that they wouldn’t be subject to an executive privilege argument.
Aguilar previously told CNN of Meadows: “His conversations about stopping a free and fair election, about criticizing and stopping the counting of electoral votes, about his coordination with campaign officials on private devices that were not turned over, all of those issues are not privilege worthy and he has some explaining to do.”
