At a glance

  • The decision appears to task the Democrat-led investigation for vacillating on key issues and acknowledging there were “important and unsettled constitutional questions” about whether the panel is lawfully constituted.
  • The U.S. Circuit Court for Appeals or the District of Columbia said it was dismissing the case because the Jan. 6 committee withdrew the subpoena to the RNC seeking records of its dealings with a digital fund-raising vendor Salesforce.
  • “The RNC’s appeal has become moot,” the appeals court ruled in dismissing the case.
  • Appellate judges appeared to go out their way to acknowledge the RNC’s concerns about the subpoena raising important issues and making clear the lower court’s ruling needed to be reversed.
  • The court also took issue with the House Democrat committee for playing essentially a game of hurry up, then wait
  • “The Committee has taken various positions on whether and when it needs the subpoenaed RNC documents,” the judges noted, citing a history of urgent requests followed by delay and then eventually withdrawal of the subpoena.
