WASHINGTON (AP) — Former President Donald Trump has asked a federal appeals court to temporarily block the release of records to a House committee investigating the January 6 Capitol incident.

Trump’s lawyers requested a temporary stay from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. Barring a court order, the National Archives is expected on Friday to turn over Trump’s call logs, draft speeches and other documents related to the incident.

Trump’s lawyers asked the court to set a schedule for the case that would delay any decision until next week.
