Supreme Court Hands Trump Win on Mueller Documents


2,842 views

Didn’t the Mulluer probe into Donald Trump end ages ago?

Yet Democrats clearly aren’t satisfied with the results.

After years of investigations and tens of millions of dollars spent, Democrats claim that we STILL can’t confirm the Trump campaign didn’t collude with Russia.

Their latest fight centers around grand jury materials.

Those materials, which are supposed to remain secret, won’t be made available until at least after the November election according to the Supreme Court.

Here’s the latest report from CNN:

Grand jury material from former special counsel Robert Mueller won’t be released to the Democratic-led House of Representatives at least for now, after the Supreme Court on Thursday granted the Trump administration’s request to take up the case next term.

The move means the documents won’t likely be released before the November election, even if the Democrats win the case.

The court’s move is a victory for the Justice Department, which is seeking to prevent the release of the information, which includes portions of Mueller’s report that were redacted to protect grand jury information and underlying grand jury testimony and exhibits that relate to certain individuals and events.

The case is a major separation of powers fight, testing the ability of the Justice Department to control grand jury information from a historic, deeply political investigation it conducted that could also aid congressional investigations.

The grand jury materials in question could shed considerable light on Russian election-meddling and Trump’s response in 2016. Dozens of witnesses testified before Mueller’s grand jury, according to CNN reporting, including Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and at least two people who attended the Trump Tower meeting in summer 2016.

House Democrats told the justices that any delay would threaten the committee’s ability to complete its investigation during the current Congress.

The timeline could effectively kill the effort to get the documents, said Steve Vladeck, CNN Supreme Court analyst and professor at the University of Texas School of Law.

“Even if the court hears arguments in November, it’s unlikely it would render a decision before January 3, 202 — when this Congress ends and this case along with it,” Vladeck said.

Can’t Democrats move on and accept that they lost the 2016 election?

Of course, that would mean that they would have to take the high road, which they never do.
