Sham Jan 6 Committee Faces Fresh Lawsuit from RNC

The RNC is hoping to slap away the grubby little paws of the politically-tainted J6 probe.

The Republican Party has long insisted that the select committee investigating the events of January 6th, 2021 was going to be exploited by the Democrats as a political tool, and this week saw the GOP pushing back sternly against the wide-ranging probe.

The committee, bipartisan on paper only, has been spending much of their time attempting to parse through the usually-private records of the previous administration, likely gleaning anything and everything of substance that they can.  This, regardless of the content’s relevance to the Capitol riots.

The RNC, fearing that the probe is more “fishing expedition” than “tip of the spear” in scope, is now suing the committee, seeking to get their grubby paws off of their retail data.

The Republican National Committee is suing the Jan. 6 select committee after investigators sought fundraising information from Salesforce, a major RNC vendor. 

The select committee subpoenaed Salesforce on Feb. 23, according to the RNC’s court filing, for information about the party’s fundraising, including “non-public information on Republican donors, volunteers, and supporters and the internal deliberative processes of the RNC.” The company was due to provide the documents to the committee by Wednesday, and it’s unclear whether it complied. While telecommunications companies like Verizon and T-Mobile typically refuse to comply with subpoenas if a subscriber is suing, it’s unclear whether Salesforce abides by a similar policy.

The subpoena also requires a company official to interview with the committee by March 16. A spokesperson for the company was not immediately available for comment.

The committee has long understood that their time is limited, particularly as predictions of a “red wave” continue to inundate the conversation around the 2022 midterms.
