Trump Sues January 6 Panel

Former President Trump has filed a lawsuit against the House January 6th panel to block then from obtaining his records from the National Archives.

The Hill reports:

“The Committee’s request amounts to nothing less than a vexatious, illegal fishing expedition openly endorsed by Biden and designed to unconstitutionally investigate President Trump and his administration,” the lawsuit reads. “Our laws do not permit such an impulsive, egregious action against a former President and his close advisors.”

The committee requested in August that the National Archives turn over an exhaustive list of records from Trump’s time in office and the aftermath of the Capitol riot.

President Biden declined to assert executive privilege over certain records that were requested. Trump’s lawyers said in their lawsuit Monday that the former president had an interest in preserving his executive privilege over certain documents.

“As it relates to any materials being sought in situations like this, where fundamental privileges and constitutional issues are at stake and where a committee has declined to grant sufficient time to conduct a full review, there is a longstanding bipartisan tradition of protective assertions of executive privilege designed to ensure the ability to make a final assertion, if necessary, over some or all of the requested material,” the lawsuit reads.

They don’t really want any materials about the January 6th. They want to dig into everything looking for something to prosecute Trump. It’s a full blown witch hunt.

Triumph should counter sue for the records of the Obama Administration. The sauce for the goose is the same as for the gander.

Check Barry Sotero’s / Obama’s D.N.A. and see just Who his real father is. Communist Pornographer Frank Marshal Davis (known to have been with Barrach’s Mother) has been tagged—neither have been tested.

These are politically driven open investigations that is tied to no crimes. They want to snoop and try to find anything that might be considered bad for a candidate.

It is neither illlegal nor unconstitutional to subpoena the records of a long dead administration. Donnie bboy must really enjoy losing. He does it so much in courts these days.

The Divider and Chief had better watch our. He may have all his business dealings with his son, China, Russia and who knows who else opened up after he is out of office if he doesn’t wake up. President Trump is standing on solid ground here.
