Can’t Move On: Democrats Want Grand Jury Material For Mueller Report

Democrats have had their little narrative on Russia Russia Russia since even before Trump was elected, but ramped it up to a Category 5 hurricane the minute he was elected, as you all know. The constant screeching. Elected Nutters like Swalwell and Nadler proclaiming that they have the evidence, but never showing it. All sorts of hearings, for which nothing came from them. Getting this whole idiotic Mueller investigation, which came to nothing. Demanding, DEMANDING, that Mueller himself testify. All for nothing. So, now

House panel seeks grand jury material underlying Mueller report

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) announced Friday that his committee is filing an application in court to obtain the grand jury material underlying former special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference and possible obstruction of justice by President Trump.

Nadler said that the panel is seeking the material in order to decide whether to recommend articles of impeachment against Trump — perhaps the Democratic chairman’s most significant and public acknowledgement that his committee is considering impeachment as a possibility.

“Because Department of Justice policies will not allow prosecution of the sitting president, the United States House of Representatives is the only institution of the federal government that can now vote President Trump accountable for these actions,” Nadler said at a press conference Friday afternoon, quoting from the application his committee was about to file in court.

Strange, because the majority of Democrats voted against impeachment the other week.

“To do so, the House must have access to all the relevant facts and consider whether to exercise its full Article I powers, including a constitutional duty power of the utmost gravity — recommendation of articles of impeachment. That duty calls in the first instance to the House Committee on the Judiciary,” he continued.

The case was filed in the Washington, D.C., District Court Friday afternoon. The filing argues that the committee needs the grand jury material in order to determine whether to recommend impeachment articles, and it equates the committee’s position to the one Congress was in during the Nixon era when a court disclosed grand jury information from the Watergate investigation.

The Justice Department has allowed Nadler and other Democrats to view a less-redacted version of Mueller’s report that still restricts grand jury material. That information is subject to secrecy under Federal Rule of Criminal Procedure 6(e), unless a court rules otherwise. (snip)

Roughly 10 percent of Mueller’s public report is redacted to conceal details related to ongoing investigations, classified information, details that could infringe on the privacy of third parties and grand jury material. According to The New York Times, about one-fifth of the redacted portions restrict grand jury material.

Nadler is attempting say this is just like Nixon and Watergate, but, really, this is just Trump Derangement Syndrome, and easy to recognize for even the most partisan of judges. It’s a fishing expedition.

Legal experts have told The Hill that Democrats are unlikely to win a case for the grand jury material unless they launch a formal impeachment inquiry. Rule 6(e) generally provides that grand jury proceedings be kept secret, with a few exceptions allowing a judge to grant a court order to release them.

All these Democrats are doing is making it easier for Trump to win re-election in 2020.
