SCOTUS: This is dereliction of duty. The Mueller probe was taxpayer-funded and the American public deserves to know what Mueller learned–BEFORE THE ELECTION!

Supreme Court to decide if Congress can get secret Russia grand jury materials (per Apple News)

WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court agreed Thursday to consider blocking Congress’ access to secret grand jury materials from the probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The action was a victory for the Trump administration, which is fighting to keep a House committee controlled by Democrats from obtaining material it says could lead to another impeachment inquiry.

The immediate significance is that any decision almost surely will come after the presidential election, a blow to House Democrats in pursuing a potential obstruction of justice charge against President Donald Trump in a possible second impeachment inquiry. The case likely will be heard by the high court in the fall or winter and decided in 2021.

House Democrats and the Justice Department have been locked in a legal battle over grand jury testimony gathered during former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. In March, a federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., ruled that the House Judiciary Committee is entitled to the evidence.

The committee contended that the grand jury material is “central” to its inquiry into possible obstruction of justice by Trump and could reveal new evidence of impeachable offenses. If so, the panel said it will consider recommending new articles of impeachment.
