We all know that the liberal left likes to hold a grudge, but this is perhaps one of the more ridiculous examples of their uncouth ability to keep their disdain driving down the road.
Just before our nation was plunged into the partial peril of this global pandemic, the progressive left had just wrapped up their attempt to have President Trump removed from office via the path of impeachment. While they were successful in impeaching Trump, their hopes of removing him from office were swiftly and sternly rebuked via a Senate acquittal.
Many believed that this was the end-all, be-all of the impeachment routine. Apparently not.
House Democrats told the Supreme Court on Monday that they are again in the midst of an “ongoing presidential impeachment investigation” as part of their “weighty constitutional responsibility” – and, the Democrats argued, redacted grand-jury material from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s now-completed Russia probe must be turned over as a result.
Top Democrats have repeatedly suggested since President Trump was acquitted on two articles of impeachment in February that they might initiate new impeachment proceedings. In their brief with the Supreme Court, which seeks testimony, exhibits and transcripts, the Democrats promised that leaks won’t be a problem, owing to their “special protocols” that will ensure “secrecy.”
“The [House Judiciary] Committee’s investigation did not cease with the conclusion of the impeachment trial,” the Democrats told the nine justices on Monday. “If this material reveals new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses that are not covered by the articles adopted by the House, the committee will proceed accordingly — including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment.”
And what, pray tell, are they going after now?
Specifically, the Democrats said they were looking into “the possible exercise of improper political influence over recent decisions made in the Roger Stone and Michael Flynn prosecutions, both of which were initiated by the special counsel.”
It appears that this is just Deep State business-as-usual, but on a national scale.
