Why Trump's Lawsuit Against the National Archives Will Fail

Lest our AP fans conclude that we’ve been asleep at the switch, we can now “report” how Donald Trump’s lawsuit against David Ferriero, the Archivist of the United States, will turn out. 


Trump incited the Insurrection at the nation’s Capitol on January 6. He is, by far, the most litigious White House occupant ever (including before he ever walked in there). Trump wants Ferriero to refuse to release all of his official papers to the January 6 investigating committee chaired by Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) (https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/19/politics/tanya-chutkan-trump-records-lawsuit/index.html).


But the Judge who will hear his suit against Ferriero has already sentenced several of the insurrectionists, noting that the defendants in her courtroom were inspired by one man and one man only.


So we sent our Dynamic Duo of judicial correspondents, associate solitary reporters Samantha Boylston and Jeannie Holderness, to visit Judge Tanya Chutkan, appointed by a very good President.


“Samantha and Jeannie,” Judge Chutkan began, “don't worry. I’ve already drafted my decision, after enduring seeing that loathsome man in my Courtroom. You have nothing to worry about.”
