(Tea Party PAC) – Jerrold Nadler and his Democrat buddies in the House just got their dreams of impeaching President Trump blown to smithereens by a federal judge, which, as you might imagine, is going to send them sinking into a miry pit of despair and depression.
About a month ago, the House Judiciary Committee requested a federal judge to unseal grand jury material that was related to the Mueller investigation.
Here are more details from Gateway Pundit:
The court filing was used to declare that the Democrats in the House have launched an ‘impeachment investigation’ of President Trump.
The Dem-led panel told a judge that it needs access to Mueller’s grand-jury evidence — such as witness testimony — because it is “investigating whether to recommend articles of impeachment” against Trump.
Nadler attempted to have the same judge assigned to Mueller’s case also assigned to their court fight to get testimony from former White House Counsel Don McGahn.
Earlier this week, the House Judiciary Democrats argued the two cases were related because “both seek key evidence for the Judiciary Committee’s investigation into whether to recommend articles of impeachment against President Donald J. Trump for potentially criminal obstructive conduct.”
DOJ lawyers argued that the Democrats were “attempting to game the system” by “shopping” for a Deep State, anti-Trump judge.
US District Judge Beryl Howell of the District of Columbia, an Obama appointee, denied Nadler on Wednesday and wrote in an 11-page memorandum that the connections between the two cases “are too superficial and attenuated” to meet the rigors for designating the cases as related.
“[A]t first blush, the House Judiciary Committee’s view that the related case rule applies is understandable,” Judge Beryl Howell wrote in her opinion. “Nonetheless, closer examination demonstrates that these connections between the two cases are too superficial and attenuated for the instant McGahn Subpoena Case to qualify[.]”
Howell is currently presiding over the grand jury case and on Wednesday, the McGahn testimony case was ‘randomly’ assigned to another Obama judge — Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson. Imagine our shock.
The fact that the same judge isn’t assigned to both cases deflated Nadler’s hopes and dreams for impeachment because it highlights how pathetically weak his case really is, and indicates he’s in for a long, long legal battle.
Which makes you wonder, with the presidential election coming in a year, why bother with a drawn out legal battle? Why not focus all of your time and energy on the election and getting a candidate who might be able to take Trump down and win your party back the White House?
It seems like a waste of time, money, and other resources to try impeaching a president, especially when he’s not done anything that’s worthy of being impeached in the first place.
This is exactly what lost them the 2016 election and it looks like that scenario is going to happen all over again because the Democratic Party has its priorities so far out of whack.
