A spokesman to former President Donald Trump said he gave more than a thousand pages of documents and several hours of sworn testimony to the House committee investigating the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.
Taylor Budowich, who worked on the Trump campaign and was an adviser to Donald Trump Jr., made the admission in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Washington, D.C., on Friday seeking to block the panel from gaining access to his financial records from J.P. Morgan Chase Bank.
The complaint says Budowich produced "more than 1,700 pages of documents" and gave the committee "roughly four hours of sworn testimony" on Wednesday.
TRUMP SUSPECTED OF MAKING 'SEVERAL' TAPES OF CAPITOL RIOT RESPONSE
The Jan. 6 committee subpoenaed Budowich on Nov. 22 for information on his involvement in the fundraising and promotion for the rally at which Trump spoke on the Ellipse just before the Capitol riot.
At the deposition, Budowich "answered questions concerning payments made and received regarding his involvement in the planning of a peaceful, lawful rally to celebrate President Trump’s accomplishments," according to his complaint.

Budowich, who according to Fox News started his current job as Trump's spokesman in July, said in a statement that he returned home a day after his deposition to find a notice from J.P. Morgan that said it was complying with a subpoena. "To add to the absurdity, neither the committee nor JPMorgan Chase will provide me with a copy of the actual contents of the subpoena," he said.
Budowich, who joins a number of other Trump allies to file litigation to stymie Jan. 6 committee subpoenas, says in the lawsuit that the panel's subpoena to J.P. Morgan is unlawful and unenforceable, among other arguments. The lawsuit lists the Jan. 6 committee, members of the panel, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and J.P. Morgan as defendants.
