(Tea Party PAC) – A federal judge in Washington is no doubt causing liberal heads to pop like Pringle chip cans — once you pop, you can’t stop — after deciding to crumple up a Democrat impeachment lawsuit and toss it into the wastebasket. No doubt, folks on the left are livid over such a reaction, but they only have themselves to blame for it.
You see, the Democrats pulled a plug on a witness. Guess that wasn’t really a smart move, was it? Doesn’t it just bring a smile to your face when Democrats attempt to do something against the current administration and fail? It definitely should.
Check out the details via Breitbart:
A federal judge in Washington, D.C. dismissed a lawsuit Monday that sought to determine whether a witness had to obey a subpoena from the impeachment inquiry after Democrats withdrew the subpoena and impeached Trump anyway.
U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon decided Monday that the suit filed by Charles Kupperman, a former aide to former National Security Advisor John Bolton, was moot because the subpoena had already been withdrawn. The House Intelligence Committee had sought to compel Kupperman’s testimony as part of its inquiry into President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, alleging he withheld U.S. aid in return for investigations into former Vice President Joe Biden, who at the time was leading polls to win the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.
Other witnesses in the inquiry indicated that Bolton had been skeptical of the efforts of U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, who testified that he believed there had been a “quid pro quo” (though he was told directly by Trump that there was not). Bolton was said to have criticized Sondland’s so-called “drug deal.”
The House Intelligence Committee sought to compel the testimony of senior administration officials, but the White House instructed them not to cooperate with what it described as an illegitimate inquiry that disobeyed the rules of previous impeachment investigations. Kupperman had approached the courts to ask whom he was required to obey.
In his 14-page opinion, Judge Leon recounted that he had arranged an “aggressive” schedule for the case after being assigned it in late October, because “the case was a matter of great consequence to the country.” But just days later, the Intelligence Committee “withdrew its subpoena to Kupperman, and the House noticed the case as moot and moved to vacate the expedited briefing schedule,” because it did not want to wait even for a rushed judicial process.
Kupperman had wanted the court to rule anyway, but Judge Leon said that there was no chance the House would re-issue the subpoena, based on Democrats’ written submissions to the court. That might seem to contradict their claims elsewhere that they would continue investigating Trump with a view to new articles of impeachment.
President Trump himself was impeached on “obstruction of Congress,” for not obeying a congressional subpoena. The Democrats in the House decided to go ahead and impeach the president without allowing the courts to determine whether or not they actually held the authority to do so.
This tells you right from the beginning that this whole farce had nothing to do with upholding the Constitution, holding politicians accountable for corruption, or any other grand, nobel moral gesture the left pretended it was about.
No, this whole matter was about ousting Trump before the 2020 election and avoiding the possibility of having him get another pick confirmed for the Supreme Court should Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg pass away while he’s in office.
It’s shameful behavior and is one more reason the left does not belong in the White House.
