Federal District Judge Tanya Chutkan rejected a request from former President Donald Trump’s legal team for “missing materials” from the January 6 investigation, referring to it as a “fishing expedition.”
Judge Chutkan denied Trump’s motion to subpoena a raft of individuals and entities to obtain “missing records” from the House Select Committee Investigating the Jan. 6 Attack on the Capitol investigation. Chutkan is overseeing the case that Special Counsel Jack Smith has brought against Trump, Mediaite noted.
In order to obtain the “missing records,” Trump’s motion sought to subpoena seven individuals:
–The Archivist of the United States at the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)
–The Clerk of the House of Representatives
