Former President Donald Trump on Friday sued the Home committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot, arguing its subpoena searching for his testimony and paperwork tied to the Capitol assault was invalid.
The lawsuit is the primary official indication that Trump doesn’t intend to take part in a deposition scheduled for Monday, although there was little expectation that he would adjust to the subpoena.
NBC Information has reached out to the Jan. 6 committee and a Trump lawyer for remark.
The Home Jan. 6 committee subpoenaed Trump final month for any communications he might have had relating to extremist teams concerned within the riot and any makes an attempt of his prior to now yr to contact witnesses testifying earlier than the committee.
The panel final week gave Trump further time to offer requested paperwork after they stated final Friday that they didn’t obtain any information from him.
