(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced that it filed an opposition to the U.S. Capitol Police’s (USCP) effort to shut down Judicial Watch’s federal lawsuit for January 6 videos and emails. Through its police department, Congress argues that the videos and emails are not public records, there is no public interest in their release, and that “sovereign immunity” prevents citizens from suing for their release.
Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit under the common law right of access after the Capitol Police refused to provide any records in response to a January 21, 2021, request (Judicial Watch v. United States Capitol Police (No. 1:21-cv-00401)). Judicial Watch asks for:
Congress exempts itself from the Freedom of Information Act. Judicial Watch, therefore, brought its lawsuit under the common law right of access to public records.

They’re desperate to hide it all. Congress is not the sovereign.
I presume Republicans can and will reverse this in January?
Nutin’ to see here kids.
If they had any balls, they would subpoena Nancy.
The fact that Congress is hiding potentially exculpatory evidence should weigh heavily on all Jan 6 prosecutions.
No wonder they have a border fence around themselves. They continue to defy human decency and we are all on their list.
Bookmark for tomorrow.
taxpayers bought and paid for it...
“They’re desperate to hide it all. Congress is not the sovereign.”
Well actually I have been complaining about it for 50 years. Technically they are... D.C. is a “territory” and they can rule over us without accountability because technically they do have sovereign immunity. And they are not bound by the own laws they pass. The the laws they pass are concerning the “UNITED STATES”. Which they are no actually part of because they are only a “territory” of the United States.
In my personal opinion, they have no more right to make law for the United states than Puerto Rico or Guam does as territories. Territories are not bound to Constitutional accountability.
Sovereign Immunity? Sounds like the guys with wooden bumpers and self chosen license plate numbers.
Just you wait until they hear about this! Boy will they be pissed !
Arrogant, anti-American LIEberals!
Sovereign Immunity doesn’t protect the dem party from treason accusations...After all, waging war against your native country by helping the abortion movement slaughter blacks and poor Americans with a genocidal agenda would be considered treasonous, right????
Maybe some emails could have some info that may need to be redacted, like security codes or info on keys/key card and locks, but no reason to hide any video.
We don’t do monarchy, royalty, aristocracy her band I
and you sure aren’t a queen who has

I believe that is one of the core issues with the new Speaker dispute.
McCarthy wants to close the J6 committee down.
The Freedom Caucus team opposing him wants to keep it open, and aim it 180 degrees in the opposite direction, starting with things like reviewing/releasing this footage.
Exactly one of the reasons why I don't want McCarthy as the Speaker.
