Pelosi Congress Claims Sovereign Immunity to Keep Jan. 6th Videos Secret, and more!
Top Headlines of the Week
“The Pelosi Congress (and its police department) is telling a federal court it is immune from all transparency under law and is trying to hide every second of its January 6 videos and countless emails,” stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The hypocrisy is rich, as this is the same Congress that is trying to jail witnesses who, citing privileges, object to providing documents to the Pelosi rump January 6 committee.”
The nation’s medical research agency claims preterm birth “can reveal a lot about how the traumatic death of George Floyd and the stress of COVID-19 have played out in the lives of pregnant Black women.” So, the U.S. government is spending nearly $2 million to study the impact of “dual pandemics”—structural racism exposed Floyd’s death and COVID—on black maternal health. The research will be conducted by the same public university professor whose taxpayer-funded work has already determined preterm births are significantly higher among “Black birthing people” in “over-policed” neighborhoods. The academic’s name is Rachel Hardeman, a health and racial equity teacher at the University of Minnesota who studied under Communists at Cuba’s government-run Escuela Latinoamericana de Medicina in Havana.
The Biden administration has issued a Transgender Offender Manual directing federal prisons to give special accommodations and taxpayer-funded services to certain convicts serving sentences in jails throughout the nation.

Months after Judicial Watch sued the U.S. Postal Service (USPS) for information about a secret program that tracks and collects Americans’ social media posts, more of the agency’s controversial spy mechanisms are being exposed. The newly uncovered tools are sophisticated hacking devices that can breach cell phones and the USPS’s law enforcement arm, U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS), has utilized them hundreds of times in the last few years, according to a news story that cites USPIS data buried in a lengthy agency report. The questionable surveillance schemes appear to indicate that the government is weaponizing the nation’s postal service to improperly spy on the citizens who fund it.

The more than 14,000 hours of surveillance video footage from Jan. 6, 2021, held by U.S. Capitol Police can’t be hidden under a cloak of “sovereign immunity” and should be released to the public because it represents “an extraordinary moment in our history,” Judicial Watch argued in a recent legal filing in U.S. District Court.
Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden, along with watchdog group Judicial Watch, brought national attention to the university’s GUDMAP research, which identified the Pitt biospecimen core as the source of its tissue. Pitt itself has acknowledged that UPMC provides tissue for its biospecimen core and houses several of the tissue bank’s locations.
The government watchdog group Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) for communications between then-CIA Director Gina Haspel and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark Milley in 2020-21, which reportedly involved the targeting of President Donald Trump.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement said, “It ought to be disturbing to all Americans that the head of the CIA and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs were reportedly conspiring against the President of the United States.
