The committee’s lawyers said a separate request for a further 3k pages would be put on hold.
The House select committee’s lawyers did say they would continue to pursue 721 contested documents totally around 3,000 pages.
They asked for those documents to be reviewed by the court through an expediated briefing process, noting that public hearings were set to begin next month.
Eastman’s lawyers said it was premature to to ask for an expedited schedule and review of the documents, saying their client “will continue to work with defendants to narrow the issues, it remains a distinct possibility that novel legal issues may remain to be briefed to the Court.”
“Without knowing which documents remain at issue, [Eastman] is unable to offer a position on the continuing need for discovery, an appropriate briefing schedule, or whether further narrowing of the disputed privilege issues may be possible. [Eastman] will file a prompt status with the Court upon receipt of the Bates numbers and preliminary review of remaining documents,” lawyers for Eastman responded on Saturday.
As one of Trump lawyers, Eastman was allegedly involved in developing plans to overturn the 2020 presidential election.
