Trump Sues Jan. 6 Committee To Block Archived Presidential Documents

E-mail Print PDF
Trump sues to keep Jan 6 docs secretFormer President Donald Trump has filed a lawsuit against the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection, an attempt to block lawmakers from accessing archived presidential documents.

In the Monday complaint that also addressed the National Archives, the former president called the committee’s probe into the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol an “illegal fishing expedition.” Violent Trump supporters attempted to infiltrate the Capitol with the intent of overturning the election.

Trump tried to cite executive privilege as a reason for keeping information out of the committee’s reach. The president is no longer an executive; he is a civilian.
