The Justice Department & FBI are in the middle of gathering evidence & indicting the insurrectionists. Some of that info may lead to members of Congress who aided & abetted. You don't want to tip them off or taint the investigation. That's why prosecutors generally keep their mouth shut until an indictment is issued.Discovery happens when you're calling witnesses and producing evidence. It's part of the normal civil and criminal process, and I quite see why they'd want to leave that to Merrick Garland, the Justice Department and the FBI, who will doubtless have all sorts of interesting material to put into discovery as the federal criminal cases develop.
