The Washington, D.C., judge overseeing former president Donald Trump‘s election subversion case there denied his effort to subpoena members of Congress and others for various documents related to the House Select Committee investigation of the Jan. 6 attack.

Trump’s attorneys want to force seven members of the federal government to turn over what has been described, variously, as “missing records” and “missing materials.” These documents, the defense alleges, should be – but are not – in the committee’s archives.

In a late Monday afternoon opinion and order, U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan said the 45th president “has not met his burdens.”
