National Archives to release Pence White House records to Jan. 6 panel
The National Archives said in a letter to former President Trump on Tuesday that it will release former Vice President Mike Pence's White House records to the select committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection.
The big picture: The letter came roughly two weeks after the Archives released Trump's White House records to the Jan. 6 select committee, documents that Trump attempted to keep hidden by suing the Archives.
- The panel considers Pence a key witness into what former President Trump was doing in the days leading up to the Capitol riot.
- Marc Short, former Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff, testified to the select committee last week after he was subpoenaed for his testimony.
What's next: U.S. archivist David Ferriero said the Archives would send Pence's documents to the Jan. 6 select committee on March 3.
