It never stops. Democrats are desperate to access redacted grand jury testimony from the failed Mueller investigation. They want the Supreme Court to make an exception to the law that says what goes on in a Grand Jury cannot be released to those who want to use it in a political witch hunt.
Democrats are suing the Department of Justice in the Supreme Court because Attorney General Bill Barr has upheld the law on keeping grand jury proceedings secret from the public. There are good reasons why grand jury proceedings are kept secret. Mob bosses, drug cartel members, serial killers and rogue IRS agents are not the sort of people you want to know your identity if you are ever forced to serve on a grand jury.
In the court filing on Monday, the lawyers for the Democrats’ New York Track & Field Champion Rep. Jerrold Nadler told the Supreme Court that they want “disclosure to the House Committee on the Judiciary of a limited set of grand-jury materials for use in the Committee’s ongoing Presidential impeachment investigation.”
Their argument goes like this: “The (impeachment) investigation did not cease with the conclusion of the impeachment trial. If the material reveals new evidence… 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.”
What are these crazy Democrats really looking for? They are describing their quest as looking for “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.
What they are really seeking is to preserve two rather hollow victories resulting from the Mueller investigation. The first was the obstruction of Congress conviction of Roger Stone. Stone’s jury was actually poisoned with admitted anti-Trump bias.
Democrats are furious that the DOJ reversed the original prosecutor’s recommendation that Stone go to jail for 9 years. Instead, they reduced it to 3 years. If his Stone’s appeal fails, President Trump will likely pardon him because of obvious jury political bias.
Democrats’ second loss is over the Michael Flynn railroading. Flynn was framed by James Comey’s FBI minions. When the Attorney General Barr decided that Flynn was tricked, trapped, and coerced into a shameful miscarriage of justice, the Department of Justice withdrew its charges, citing an avalanche of exculpatory evidence.
So, what else are the Democrats after in their tiresome reprise? They are planning ahead to torpedo the good news when coronavirus passes and the economy rebounds. Another impeachment effort could be their last gasp in their desperate attempt to do something—anything—that will prevent President Trump from sailing to victory against their weak candidate Joe Biden in November.
Democrats got spooked when voters overwhelmingly turned out for Republicans during a special election referendum on President Trump last week. Republican Mike Garcia beat Democrat Christy Smith. This was in a suburban Los Angeles district in a deep blue state where Republicans haven’t occupied this House seat since 1998.
Crazy Nancy Pelosi also has other tactics in mind. She has set up another House committee to oversee the President’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Pelosi has appointed high-profile Democrats and deranged Trump-haters, including nonother than someone even crazier than she is: the Trump Derangement Syndrome Poster Person Maxine Waters.
It was Mad Maxine who once tweeted that impeachment wasn’t good enough for President Trump. “He needs to be imprisoned & placed in solitary confinement…”
If there is one good argument for voting the Democrats out of power next election, it was made by House Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy: “Instead of looking for innovative ways to help the American people, Speaker Pelosi has chosen to pursue ‘impeachment 2.0’ with a partisan and unnecessary oversight committee.”
And like an annoying jack-in-the-box that just won’t go away, Adam Schiff says he wants to set up a 9/11-style commission in February 2021 to examine government preparedness in advance of future pandemics.
Given that Adam Schiff led the process that distracted everyone’s attention and allowed the virus to gain a foothold, he might want to rethink that approach. He could be another example of the Ashhcroft-Gorelick beat down during the original 9/11 hearings.
