Trump sues Jan 6 panel to block document disclosure


Former President Donald Trump

Former President Donald Trump is suing the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attacks in an attempt to block the disclosure of White House documents, describing the panel’s demand as a “vexatious, illegal fishing expedition.”

“This self-described ‘sweeping’ request is almost limitless in scope

and effectively seeks every presidential record and communication that could

tenuously relate to events that occurred on January 6, 2021,” the lawsuit states.
