Impeachment Inquiry Is Legal, Judge Rules, Giving DEMs a Victory

Judge orders the DOJ to hand over secret GJ evidence from the Mueller inv’n to the HJC by 10/30.

The committee's need for disclosure of the materials "is greater than the need for continued secrecy.”


The silence is stunning.

No senator is saying:

📌Openly that Trump’s conduct is not impeachable.

📌The witnesses lack credibility.

📌It is perfectly appropriate for the president to use his powers to aid his campaign effort

But he also prayed & worked for healing.

The House has opened an impeachment investigation against Trump

The House filed a petition to access to redacted portions of the MR re GJ testimony re Trump’s knowledge of criminal acts, RU interference in the 2016Elex election & RU connex to his campaign.

Finally, the committee seeks grand jury testimony about actions taken by former WH counsel Donald McGahn; this last request probably anticipates the committee’s rumored plans to seek an order compelling McGahn to testify.


It is settled law that House committees can obtain GJ materials as part of the impeachment inquiry.

The Constitution’s text and structure — supported by judicial precedent & prior practice — show that impeachment is a process, not a single vote & IT IS UNDERWAY!

Trump was elected w/ RU’s help & they lied abt contacts incessantly, why?

Barr & Mueller are forbidden to talk abt prosecutions filed under seal at various jurisdictions & abt active GJ matters & active inv’s.

Unsealed indictments will reveal Mueller’s Report.

Per RR: you can’t speak disparagingly about a person if they have not been charged with a crime (re: Comey re HRC)

Initially I had a meltdown about this as I realized then Mueller couldn’t speak of any criminal acts unless indictments were unsealed concurrently.

📌Chatter est’d 2 week delay is consistent w/ the likelihood indictments cannot be unsealed until Congress has rec’d the MR

📌Barr: the WH will get the MR before the public, in case it wants to make redactions.

📌Trump‘s legal team cannot redact indictments.🤗
