The democrats are just never going to be done with this whole RussiaGate thing, are they?
They’re clinging to Robert Mueller as though he was the first boy who picked flowers for them in 5th grade. They’re almost parasitic in their attachment, leeching out any last bit of inference they can conjure in order to keep their hopes of undoing the 2016 election alive.
Even after a vigorous several hours of testimony on Capitol Hill Wednesday, which was panned by both liberal and conservative infotainment channels alike, the democrats are trudging onward, hoping to convince someone, anyone, that Donald Trump secretly works for The Kremlin.
Their latest attempt to keep the dream alive is a legal nightmare, however.
The Democratic-led U.S. House Judiciary Committee asked a federal court on Friday for access to grand jury evidence from the Mueller probe that lawmakers say they need to determine whether to begin impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump.
Democratic lawyers from the House of Representatives filed a 53-page petition in U.S. District Court seeking permission to review evidence involving interactions between Trump campaign officials and Russian agents, and Trump’s alleged efforts to direct former White House Counsel Don McGahn to remove Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Grand Jury testimony is a dicy sort of evidence, legally, as it is not generally allowed to become public, or fall to the purview of legislators. This is to protect the uncharted innocents involved in such cases.
The democrats are going all out with their threats these days.
“We have just given notice that we are actively considering articles of impeachment … that is as serious a step as we should take at this time,” an attorney for the committee told reporters during a background briefing held after the filing.
A separate committee lawsuit expected early next week to compel McGahn to testify before the panel will also cite the need to decide on impeachment, though McGahn could avoid court action by agreeing to appear as a result of negotiations, aides said.
President Trump has repeatedly characterized the democrats’ unwillingness to move on from the RussiaGate conspiracy an attempt at a “do-over” of the Mueller investigation.
