About time!

Former President Donald Trump has just filed a lawsuit against the January 6th Committee which aims to dismiss the subpoena issued by them which forces Trump to appear before them in court.

In October the committee voted unanimously to subpoena Donald Trump and continue this parade which is obviously nothing more than a witch hunt.

Democrat Chair Bennie Thompson blasted Trump and said, “We have left no doubt—none—that Donald Trump led an effort to upend American democracy that directly resulted in the violence of Jan. 6.”

Thompson added, “He is the one person at the center of the story of what happened on Jan. 6. So we want to hear from him.”

According to CNN, after issuing the lawsuit against the Jan 6 Panel, Trump’s attorneys explained, “The Subpoena’s request for testimony and documents from President Trump is an unwarranted intrusion upon the institution of the Presidency because there are other sources of the requested information, including the thousand-plus witnesses the Committee has contacted and one million documents that the Committee has collected. The Committee also may obtain abundant government records relevant to its inquiry. Because of this obvious availability to obtain testimony and documents from other readily available sources, the Subpoena is invalid.”

What’s even more interesting is that after the lawsuit was files a spokesperson for the January 6 committee refused to give any statements about the matter.
