Judge denies Trump access to Jan.6 recordsThe federal judge overseeing Donald Trump's upcoming election interference trial said in a ruling Monday that the former president's attempt to subpoena what his legal team dubbed "missing" records from the House Jan. 6 committee appeared to be a "fishing expedition" that was not in good faith.

Last month, Trump's team said it wanted to subpoena the U.S. archivist, the clerk of the House of Representatives, the Committee on House Administration, Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-Ga., and Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., among others, saying there was a "significant overlap between the Select Committee’s investigation and this case" and a strong likelihood that some of the materials would discuss trial witnesses.

U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan, who will oversee Trump's trial, which is set to get underway in March, said in a ruling Monday that she would not require federal officials to produce records related to the Jan. 6 committee's work.
