On Wednesday, reports indicated that the Biden administration has rejected yet another effort by former President Donald Trump to conceal White House documents under executive privilege — this time in the form of the White House visitor logs, which Biden officials will allow to be transmitted from the National Archives to the House Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
The announcement drew an immediate reaction from commenters on social media — many of whom celebrated, and some of whom expressed incredulity that the former president believed he could get away with covering up the records in question.

Does that incompetent caricature underestimate that he serves neither credibility nor purpose to this country, by attempting to request @POTUS to engage in his his seditious & criminal MO by hiding potential evidence for crimes committed against the Constitution and this nation?https://twitter.com/kaitlancollins/status/1493925883115147264\u00a0\u2026— Wayne AP Morris (@Wayne AP Morris) 1645016245

Biden has decided the White House visitor logs on Jan 6th are not subject to executive privilege....\n\nTrump has been fighting to keep them from the January 6th Committee claiming "Grave National Security Risks".\n\nTRUMP IS THE NATIONAL SECURITY RISK.https://www.thedailybeast.com/biden-blows-up-trump-plan-to-keep-jan-6-visitor-logs-secret\u00a0\u2026— TravisMatthew2008 (@TravisMatthew2008) 1645016185
Visitor logs should always be public. If there's a national security issue they can be released a few months later.https://twitter.com/dsupervilleap/status/1493932386555514880\u00a0\u2026— The Bearded Crank (@The Bearded Crank) 1645016919
