Democrats will not give up on their quest to impeach President Trump.
In fact, they just escalated their war on the president and his supporters.
That’s because Nancy Pelosi just approved an ultimatum that brought Donald Trump one step closer to impeachment.
Democrats were momentarily stunned by Attorney General William Barr’s letter announcing Robert Mueller did not find any evidence of a criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia.
But they immediately shifted gears to accuse Attorney General William Barr of a cover up because he only summarized the findings – as was mandated by a law the Democrats demanded after Ken Starr produced his report on Bill Clinton’s impeachable offenses.
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler demanded the report in full by April 2.
That was impossible.
Attorney General Barr informed Congress he was working with special counsel Mueller to redact necessary material and the report would be available within weeks.
That infuriated Democrats – who with Nancy Pelosi’s permission – fired off a subpoena demanding the Mueller Report in full.
The House Judiciary Committee approved subpoenas Wednesday for special counsel Robert Mueller’s full Russia report as Democrats pressure the Justice Department to release the document without redactions.
The committee voted 24-17 to give Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., permission to issue subpoenas to the Justice Department for the final report, its exhibits and any underlying evidence or materials prepared for Mueller’s investigation. Nadler has not yet said if he’ll send the subpoenas.
House Democrats had given Attorney General William Barr until Tuesday to produce the full report to Congress. The Justice Department ignored that deadline, with Barr telling committee chairmen in a letter last week that a redacted version of the full 300-page report would be released by mid-April, “if not sooner.”
Democrats want all the unredacted grand jury testimony and intelligence gathering so they can leak it to their allies in the fake news media.
Even though there was no collusion and no determination President Trump obstructed justice, Democrats want the full report so they can cherry pick all the bad information and spread it around the media to further their fake news narrative that Trump is corrupt and must be impeached.
