Potentially hundreds of pages of former President Donald Trump’s White House records being turned over to Congress will be made public, the chairman of the House committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol said.

“As soon as we can go through them, and figure out what we can and can’t -- we will do it,” Representative Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, said Thursday, a day after the Supreme Court rejected Trump’s suit to prevent the committee from getting the documents.
