PHOENIX (AP) — An effort by Arizona Republican Party Chair Kelli Ward and her husband to block a subpoena of their phone records issued by the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol has been rejected by a judge. Thursday’s ruling from U.S. District Judge Diane Humetewa says none of the reasons the Wards cited for blocking the congressional demand pass legal muster. She noted that Congress is generally immune from lawsuits, and none of the exemption applied to the Wards’ case. Their attorneys appealed the decision to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday. Neither Ward nor the House committee immediately responded to requests for comment.
