Former President Donald Trump is suing the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 attacks in an attempt to block the disclosure of White House documents, describing the panel’s demand as a “vexatious, illegal fishing expedition.”

“This self-described ‘sweeping’ request is almost limitless in scope and effectively seeks every presidential record and communication that could tenuously relate to events that occurred on January 6, 2021,” the lawsuit states.

Trump’s legal action comes after President Joe Biden declined to assert executive privilege sought by the former president to sidestep the committee’s demand.
