Trump J6 Lawsuit Drives Stake into Heart of Witch Hunt

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) As former President Donald Trump prepares for what is widely expected to be a Nov. 15 announcement to launch a 2024 presidential run, the MAGA chieftain on Friday sued the J6 Inquisition to dismiss a subpoena that demanded his appearance for a deposition on Nov. 14.

“Long-held precedent and practice maintain that separation of powers prohibits Congress from compelling a president to testify before it,” Trump attorney David A. Warrington said in a statement, adding that “no president or former president has ever been compelled to do so.”

Trump was slated to testify and provide documents related to the J6 rally, which House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s partisan witch hunt has been trying, unsuccessfully, for an eternity to convince the country that Trump was a nefarious Super Villain able to amass, direct and command cadres of foot soldiers to storm the Capitol, despite federal agents having moles and informants embedded with the alleged insurrectionists months before the protests.

By filing the lawsuit, Trump effectively killed any chance for the Inquisitors to compel his testimony. The committee is scheduled to run its course, wither away and die, not unlike the Wicked Witch of Oz, at the end of the year. Any litigation resulting from the lawsuit is expected to long outrun that timeline.

Trump, who had reportedly been open to testifying, has cooperated with the committee “in a good faith effort to resolve these concerns consistent with Executive Branch prerogatives and separation of powers,” Warrington’s statement informed.

The committee, however, “insists on pursuing a political path, leaving President Trump with no choice but to involve the third branch, the judicial branch, in this dispute between the executive and legislative branches,” the statement claimed.

In the lawsuit, Trump’s attorneys argued that the former president  shouldn’t be compelled to reveal internal workings of his 2020 campaign, “including his political beliefs, strategy, and fundraising.”

“President Trump did not check his constitutional rights at the Oval Office door,” the suit declared. “Because the Committee’s Subpoena to President Trump infringes upon his First Amendment rights it is invalid.”
