BREAKING: Trump sues Jan. 6 committee, National Archives in effort to block handover of documents

Former President Trump is suing the January 6th committee, that has demanded records from the Trump White House related to the Jan. 6 U.S. capitol riot.

The suit argued the subpoena is invalid because it has no power of investigation and argues the material should be protected by executive privilege.

“In sum, Plaintiff files this action requesting that the court invalidate the committee’s requests and enjoin the archivist from turning over the records in question. At a bare minimum, the court should enjoin the archivist from producing any potentially privileged records until President Trump is able to conduct a full privilege review of all of the requested materials,” the lawsuit states.

Trump released the following statement via his SAVE AMERICA Pac.
