RNC to Sue Jan. 6 Committee Over Salesforce Subpoena
Partner Christopher Armstrong was quoted in an Axios article about the Republican National Committee (RNC)'s decision to sue the Jan. 6 select committee over the Salesforce subpoena. The Jan. 6 select committee has subpoenaed Salesforce, the customer relationship management giant and a major Republican National Committee vendor, for sensitive information about the RNC's fundraising. According to three sources with direct knowledge of the dispute, the RNC plans to sue to stop the disclosure.
This article takes a deep dive into the decision, and Mr. Armstrong weighs in on how the RNC's effort to block the subpoena will be an uphill battle but is not futile.
"Courts have traditionally given congressional oversight bodies broad leeway in conducting investigations, absent any constitutional or procedural defenses by the subpoenaed party," said Mr. Armstrong.
