Judicial Watch announced today that it filed a motion for discovery in its lawsuit against the United States Capitol Police (USCP) for videos and emails and videos concerning the disturbance at the U.S. Capitol on January 6 (Judicial Watch v. United States Capitol Police (No. 1:21-cv-00401)). Congress exempts itself from the Freedom of Information Act. Judicial Watch therefore brings this case pursuant to the common law right of access to public records. The Capitol Police declined to produce any records about the disturbance to Judicial Watch, however, arguing that the requested videos and other records are not “public records” and the public interest doesn’t warrant their release.
