Judicial Watch announced that it has filed Freedom of Information Act lawsuits against the Department of the Interior and Department of Defense for documents pertaining to the movement of military forces around the Capitol complex in Washington, D.C., in January and February 2021.

"Judicial Watch is deeply troubled that the U.S. Park Police and the Pentagon are suppressing the many unknown facts surrounding the January 6 incident at the U.S. Capitol," stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "It is critical that the American people have a full account of the facts. It is disturbing that we must take the two government agencies to federal court for this basic information," he said.

This isn't the first time Judicial Watch has sued the government over the January 6 incident. Judicial Watch has filed multiple cases in connection with the January 6 incident. They sued the Department of Defense in March 2021 for documents relating to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's January 8, 2021, conference call with Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley.

The case was brought before the United States District Court for the District of Columbia after the Department of Defense refused to respond to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request on January 11, 2021.

Additionally, a Judicial Watch lawsuit filed in March contributed to the discovery that Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick died of natural causes. The lawsuit was filed in part to obtain the autopsy of the police officer.

Also, in February, Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit against the Capitol Police to receive emails and footage linked to the January 6 incident.
