Impeach Trump again? Did we hear that right? And over “Russian Collusion,” no less? You heard it right, in a court filing, House Democrats told the Supreme Court that they need secret Grand Jury documents from the Mueller report because those documents “might” contain impeachable offenses. They may wish to impeach Trump again by 2021.
“The Committee’s impeachment investigation related to obstruction of justice pertaining to the Russia investigation is ongoing. If this material reveals new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses,the Committee will proceed accordingly — including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment.” Douglas Letter, House General counsel in the court filing

They are pushing to get secret grand jury documents from the Robert Mueller report, and have been for a year. A DC Circuit Court ruling in March granted them access, but the fight has made it to the Supreme Court. Chief Justice Roberts put a stay on the DC court ruling in May to stop them from releasing the documents.
The saga began in 2019, when Special Counsel Robert Mueller determined that there had been no collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign. When he released his report, however, Mueller submitted two volumes — one on the collusion investigation, and one on a separate obstruction of justice investigation. Though he made no recommendation for prosecution, Democrats seized on the latter as providing the basis for potentially impeaching Trump for obstruction.
Democrats also claimed that certain redactions in the report must have hidden relevant information — though they declined to read a less redacted version. They also demanded access to material that Mueller had shown a grand jury. Normally grand jury proceedings are secret, and so Attorney General William Barr, citing federal law, declined the Democrats’ request. They then held him in contempt of Congress, and took their case for the materials to federal court.
The case made its way through the courts, and Democrats won at the D.C. Circuit. The Department of Justice appealed to the Supreme Court on May 7, and Chief Justice Roberts put a temporary hold on the grand jury materials on May 8.
So what we have here is grasping at straws with an intent to suck the life out of America by continuing a partisan investigation that has already been shown as false. Nadler’s animus (aka hate) toward Trump is decades old.
Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Nadler, et.al. all need to be removed from Congress for wasting American’s time and spending ridiculous sums of money. It’s an election year. Be sure to vote red.
