Gerald Nadler is in need of an enema more than any human on the planet.

That includes Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters and Diane Feinstein and the entire rest of the hard-left.

The Justice Department on Friday pushed back hard against the House Democrats’ quest to gain the secret grand jury material underlying former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Accusing Democrats of a “vague, overbroad” fishing expedition, the Justice Department said the House Judiciary Committee has “come nowhere close to demonstrating a particularized need” for the material.

“The committee’s failure to provide a tailored request accompanied by a concrete explanation for why this material is necessary is particularly striking given the extensive investigations Congress has already conducted into Russian interference,” Justice Department attorneys wrote in a Washington, D.C., federal court filing.

House Democrats, led by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler of New York, filed the lawsuit in July shortly after Mr. Mueller testified on Capitol Hill.

Democrats have asked the court to release the unreacted Mueller report and transcripts of grand jury testimony.

Grand jury testimony, often called “6E” information because of the section of federal criminal procedure rules that governs it, is usually shielded from disclosure — though there’s a debate about the exceptions to that one.

One clear exception is impeachment, but Democrats are reluctant to take the political heat that would follow from announcing impeachment proceedings.

Democrats have insisted they are in the early stages of an impeachment inquiry and need the grand jury materials to decide if they want to move forward.

The Justice Department slammed that argument, saying “hypothetical” impeachment plans are “not judicial proceedings.”

“The committee’s own description of its investigation makes clear that it is too far removed from any potential judicial proceeding to qualify,” department attorneys wrote.

Department attorneys also cited June comments by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, that the House was “not even close” to an impeachment inquiry.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

  1. Dave the Differentiator says:

    The bigger question is what laws were violated? The basis of any investigation is that a law was violated. The burden is on the prosecution to state the law and define the specifics of the violation.

    The Democrats do not even have a clue was to what if any law was ever violated by President Trump! However there is abundant evidence of several laws that were violated by Hillary Clinton, Barrack Obama, James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates and many others. The FISA Warrant was based on a false document, the Steele Dossier, which has been shown to be false. Using an unverified documents and claiming it was verified is a crime and is “Fraud Upon the Court” which is a felony. The bigger issue is that once the Steele Dossier was determined to be false, why did Mueller and Rosenstein continue with the Investigation into Trump? It now appears that the entire Mueller Investigation was fabricated by James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, Loretta, President Obama and Joe Biden. Of course, Hillary was involved at every phase of the Conspiracy! Bill Clinton even flew to Phoenix, AZ to confront Loretta Lynch and “make a Deal” to get Hillary off of the hook – so to speak!

    Inspector General Horowitz has completed his investigation of the Mueller Investigation and the Final; Report is being prepared for disclosure – the Redaction Process for sensitive information. Consequently, the disclosure of the FISA Warrant justification is just days or perhaps even hours away. The Spy-Gate Conspiracy is well known and many Whistle-Blowers and “Cooperating-Witnesses” have provided disclosure about the facts and trail of evidence.

    The Democrats have over-played their hand and actually have no evidence and no case. More importantly, if an Impeachment Hearing is arranged, then America will get to hear both sides of the debate. President will, for the first time, be allowed to present his case and the evident of the Act of Sedition that was organized by the corrupt Democrats starting at the very top = President Obama and VP Joe Biden.

    Imagine getting to hear the recording of the conversation between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch at the airport in Phoenix! I bet the topic of grand kids was never discussed! Of course, there are all of the crimes committed by Hillary with full knowledge of then President Obama. Think Benghazi and the arms deal to supply ISIS that resulted in the death of an Ambassador and several Navy SEALS. Then there is the Uranium One deal to Russia that involved Hillary, Bill and others. Then America will also get to see the testimony of El Chapo the Mexican Drug Lord who claims he paid a lot of cash to various politicians – an opportunity to get Pelosi, Schumer and Schiff into the criminal lime light. My guess is that Fat Nat will have a heart attack during these next few weeks! The California Corrupt team of Pelosi, Schiff, Waters, Feinstein and others will also be dragged into the lime light along with Newsom and Brown.

    The problem with an Impeachment Hearing is that real evidence will be presented in an open court which is a disaster for the Democrats.
