Judicial Watch Sues Pentagon and Park Police Over Jan. 6 Capitol Deployment

From Tom Fitton’s article for Breitbart:

Nancy Pelosi wants to set up a commission to continue the politicization of events at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, saying that those who oppose her “are afraid of the truth.”

That’s laughable. Getting to the truth is our specialty, and so we filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) suits against the Department of the Interior and the Department of Defense for records regarding the deployment of armed forces around the Capitol complex in Washington, D.C., in January and February of 2021 (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of the Interior (No. 1:21-cv-01302)) and (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Defense (No. 1:21-cv-01301)).

Who needs a “commission” when you have trusty Judicial Watch! 

We sued here in DC after the Department of Defense failed to reply to our February 19, 2021, FOIA request for:

All emails regarding the deployment of U.S. troops around the Capitol complex in Washington, D.C. sent to and from Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Deputy Secretary Kathleen H. Hicks, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley, and/or Vice Chairman Gen. John E. Hyten.

We’re interested in emails sent between January 6, 2021, and February 19, 2021.

We sued the Department of the Interior after the U.S. Park Police, one of its components, failed to reply to a March 18, 2021, FOIA request for:

All records of communications, including emails and text messages, between officials of the U.S. Park Police and officials of the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Police Department regarding the Jan. 6, 2021 pro-Trump rally and/or protest at the Capitol Building.

All records of communications, including emails and text messages, between officials of the U.S. Park Police and officials of the Federal Bureau of Investigation regarding the Jan. 6, 2021 pro-Trump rally and/or protest at the Capitol Building.
