In a motion to compel discovery that curiously relies both on debunked conspiracy theories of 2020 election fraud as well as credible intelligence that Donald Trump has categorically rejected for years, lawyers representing the former president in his impending election subversion trial now allege special counsel prosecutors have engaged in “sabotage” and “suppression” of potential defense evidence.

The 37-page motion is a thicket of contradictions but chief among them is a request for access to classified records underpinning an intelligence community report that found Russia interfered in the 2016 election.
