As the ObamaGate scandal continues to blast off into the mainstream, Democratic operatives are continuing to treat the ruse as though it still has merit.
This week they sought to snag even more material from the Robert Mueller-led probe, hoping to dig up something, anything, that they could use to keep their hopes alive.
The Supreme Court stopped them dead in their tracks.
The Supreme Court on Wednesday temporarily prevented the House of Representatives from obtaining secret grand jury testimony from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
The court’s unsigned order granted the Trump administration’s request to keep previously undisclosed details from the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election out of the hands of Democratic lawmakers, at least until early summer.
The court will decide then whether to extend its hold and schedule the case for arguments in the fall. If it does, it’s likely the administration will be able to put off the release of any materials until after Election Day. Arguments themselves might not even take place before Americans decide whether to give President Donald Trump a second term.
The news comes just days after a series of declassifications seemingly tore a hole in the entire RussiaGate investigation, as it was shown that the FBI was willing to trick former national security adviser Michael Flynn into lying to them.
This continued pursuit of facts in the case sure feels like the Democrats walking ever further out onto the plank, doesn’t it?
