Trump “does not acknowledge the deference owed to the incumbent president’s judgment.

A US judge has ruled a congressional committee investigating the Capitol riot can access some of ex-President Donald Trump’s White House records. Trump wanted to invoke executive privilege, under which presidential documents can be kept secret.

Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building on 6 January as Congress was certifying President Joe Biden’s election victory after Trump refused to acknowledge losing the election last year, claiming – without evidence – that it had been rigged.

“He told me I’m a good Catholic and should keep receiving Holy Communion” Biden says after visiting Pope Francis amid controversy over communion.
President Joe Biden, who was denied communion by a Catholic priest months ago because of his views on abortion laws, has said that Pope Francis told him he should continue to be allowed to receive communion. The US President met the Catholic Pope at the Vatican on Friday, October 28, to discuss a broad set of topics, including climate change, global poverty, and the distribution of vaccines to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
Biden is the second Catholic president in U.S. history and, months before his election, he made news headlines when a South Carolina priest refused to give him Holy Communion. This led to a debate as some Catholics said he has a right to receive communion while others said he shouldn’t be given communion because of his support for abortion rights. Following his meeting with the pope, Biden told reporters that the topic of abortion did not come up in their conversation.
The Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday released a sweeping report about how former President Donald Trump and a top lawyer in the Justice Department attempted to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

U.S. President Joe Biden met with Belarus opposition leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya on Wednesday and expressed support for democracy and human rights in the former Soviet republic. “I was honored to meet with @Tsihanouskaya at the White House this morning.
The United States stands with the people of Belarus in their quest for democracy and universal human rights,” Biden wrote in a Twitter post. Tsikhanouskaya has pressed for stronger action from the United States against President Alexander Lukashenko’s government during a visit to the country.
She met earlier with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, the top U.S. diplomat, and White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan. Last week, she asked U.S. officials to impose sanctions on companies in her country’s potash, oil, wood and steel sectors.
“Thank you, @POTUS, for a powerful sign of solidarity with millions of fearless Belarusians who are peacefully fighting for their freedom. Today, Belarus is on the frontline of the battle between democracy and autocracy. The world stands with us. Belarus will be a success story” Tsikhanouskaya wrote in her own Twitter post.
Tsikhanouskaya was meeting again with Sullivan on Wednesday morning when Biden dropped by briefly, a senior administration official said. It was an opportunity for the U.S. president to express his support for the people of Belarus in person, the official said.
Lukashenko has kept a tight grip on Belarus since 1994 and cracked down on peaceful street protests that began over a disputed presidential election last August. Tsikhanouskaya, 38, was a candidate in the election instead of her husband Sergei Tsikhanouskiy, a video blogger who has been jailed since May 2020 on charges such as violating public orde, which he denies.
Tsikhanouskaya fled to neighboring Lithuania after Lukashenko’s crackdown. In June, the United States, the European Union and Britain imposed sweeping sanctions on Belarusian entities and officials, and called on Minsk “to end its repressive practices against its Own people.”
