Democrats’ impeachment witch hunt is also playing out in courtrooms across the country.
Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff are leaving no stone unturned.
And now Democrats told a judge something about impeachment that left jaws on the ground.
Democrats are locked in a court battle to compel former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify in their impeachment inquiry.
It all stems from Robert Mueller’s partisan assassins citing events involving McGahn as evidence of obstruction of justice — even though McGahn said he never saw the President do anything illegal or improper.
The Trump administration is arguing that since the Democrats passed articles of impeachment in the House of Representatives this case is moot.
Democrats told the judge the subpoena should be honored because more articles of impeachment could be on the way.
The House Judiciary Committee told a federal appeals court Monday that it still wants former White House counsel Don McGahn to testify as it could potentially lead to the introduction of “additional articles of impeachment” against President Donald Trump over his contacts with Ukraine.
In a brief submitted to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, the panel’s counsel Doug Letter argued its subpoena of McGahn, who departed the White House last year, is not moot despite the House’s approval of two impeachment articles — abuse of power and obstruction of Congress — in a partisan vote on Wednesday evening.
“If McGahn’s testimony produces new evidence supporting the conclusion that President Trump committed impeachable offenses that are not covered by the Articles approved by the House, the Committee will proceed accordingly—including, if necessary, by considering whether to recommend new articles of impeachment,” the brief reads.
The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), subpoenaed McGahn in March for its investigation into whether President Trump or senior White House officials obstructed justice during special counsel Robert Mueller’s prrobe into now-debunked collusion between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia.
Democrats would be committing political suicide by pursuing more articles of impeachment.
Doubling down on this failed strategy will only push more Americans toward the President as they see the Democrats are engaged in a petty and partisan power grab to overthrow the duly-elected President.
