A federal judge in Washington D.C. on Sunday rejected a lawsuit by the Republican National Committee against the House January 6th Inquisition.

The RNC alleged in the lawsuit that its First and Fourth Amendment rights were violated when the panel subpoenaed Salesforce, the software company it uses for fundraising efforts.

As reported by Just the News, the Inquisition in February subpoenaed Salesforce, attempting to gain access to documents from the company’s marketing cloud platform that the RNC uses.

Judge Timothy Kelly of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, dismissed the claims made by the group in a 53-page opinion, writing that “less is at stake than the RNC represents.”

“The subpoena’s demand for this information does not seek the disclosure of confidential internal materials and does not add to the RNC’s  burden,” he wrote.

"For the information the parties acknowledge exists but is currently confidential – such as the performance data of the RNC's email campaigns during this period – the strength of the Select Committee’s interest in this information outweighs any actual burdens imposed by its disclosure to the Select Committee,”  he added.

The judge also said that the subpoenas do not violate the Fourth Amendment and that the Inquisition has a legitimate purpose in going after the information.
