The Democrat-controlled January 6 Committee is facing a new lawsuit by Arizona Republican Party chairwoman Kelli Ward. In a recent filing with a federal court, she said the Democrat panel is trying to unconstitutionally violate the right to privacy with its subpoenas.
Ward’s lawsuit comes after she was informed by T-Mobile her phone records were subpoenaed by the committee. She also said Democrats are trying to intimidate their opponents and pressure the Supreme Court. Ward added, Democrats realize they will lose in November’s midterms.
“Democrats have shamelessly tried to smear the reputations of good people only because they believe in interpreting the United States Constitution as it’s written,” explained the chairwoman. “…It is a very good reminder about what’s at stake as we work to regain the majority in the U.S. Senate this fall. Remember here at the Republican Party of Arizona it is always America First!”
Ward stressed the partisan panel is made up from political hacks whose only goal is to attack 45th President Donald Trump and his supporters.
