UPDATE: The DC Circuit Court of Appeals agreed to stay the District Court's ruling until they've heard arguments. They also agreed to accelerate the schedule so arguments will be heard on November 30th.
Former President Donald Trump has urged a federal appeals court to block the release of presidential records so that he can pursue an appeal against a lower court ruling.
Chutkan has argued that Trump does not have the power to block more than 700 documents from being transmitted to the Jan. 6 Committee ahead of a Friday 6 p.m. deadline.
Trump's Thursday motion before the court of appeals seeks a temporary injunction to preserve the "status quo."
"President Trump has exercised his constitutional and statutory right to assert executive privilege over a subset of those documents, and he has made a protective assertion of privilege over any future materials requested," the filing states. "Subsequently, President Biden refused to assert privilege over the documents and sought to allow Congress to invade the executive privilege of President Trump."
