Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 18, 2021

Former President Trump on Monday filed a federal lawsuit against the Jan. 6 select committee seeking to block the panel from obtaining his administration's records from the National Archives. "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.

Losing is bad enough, but being a loser and delusional? So sad!

If Trump is granted the opportunity to review those documents beforehand the only thing left unredacted will be the page numbers.

Also, maybe you know. Isn't there some provision in the law that makes using the courts as a delaying tactic illegal?

I remember reading something along those lines recently.

You'd certainly think so, wouldn't you?

I'll have to look that up when I'm, not in a hurry.

Just anecdotally, it seems courts are inclined to let a person exhaust the remedies ... a worthy goal, often abused.
