American Oversight’s Parallel Investigations Initiative is an ongoing project to ensure that the Trump administration can’t thwart accountability. Congress is conducting investigations into misconduct across the administration, but President Trump has vowed to “fight all the subpoenas” — and his administration is resisting congressional oversight at every turn.
Beginning in late October 2018, we have been filing lawsuits demanding the release of documents that are also the subjects of congressional investigations, including Trump’s interference in the redevelopment of the FBI headquarters building, the botched response to the hurricanes that struck Puerto Rico, and the involvement of Mar-a-Lago members in setting policy at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Those lawsuits, along with many of the parallel FOIA requests we have filed, are posted below.
