Trump sues to block January 6 House committee subpoena

Former President Donald Trump is suing to block a subpoena issued by the House committee on Jan. 6 seeking to force him to testify next week.

The lawsuit, filed in federal court in West Palm Beach on Friday evening, argues that the subpoena infringes the executive’s privilege still guaranteed to him by the Constitution, even though he left office more than a year ago. of 21 months. The prosecution also challenges the committee’s authority on other grounds.

“Former President Trump looks to the courts to preserve his rights and the independence of the executive branch consistently upheld by the courts and endorsed by the Department of Justice,” Trump’s attorneys wrote in the 41-page complaint.
