The Supreme Court on Friday granted an emergency request from the
Department of Justice to block enforcement of an order to release grand
jury materials from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation
into Russian interference in the 2016 election and alleged Trump campaign
collusion in those efforts.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, better
known as the D.C. Circuit Court, ruled in March that the House Judiciary
Committee, led by Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., could view secret grand jury
papers that had previously been redacted in Mueller's original report. The
House investigators are seeking that information ostensibly as part of an
impeachment investigation against Trump despite the fact Trump was
acquitted earlier this year of unrelated articles of impeachment.

"Almost a year ago, the Judiciary Committee requested access to the grand
jury materials contained in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Report,"
Nadler said when he got the favorable ruling two months ago. "The Justice
Department has consistently provided grand jury material to the Committee
in past investigations involving presidential misconduct — but Attorney
General Barr chose to break from that long-standing practice, and DOJ
radically altered its position in an attempt to withhold this
information."

But the Supreme Court on Friday blocked the lower court's order, which
gave the DOJ a deadline of Monday to turn over the documents.

In an order signed by Chief Justice John Roberts, it further requested
that lawyers for the House Judiciary Committee respond with arguments
against why the unredacted Mueller documents should be turned over by May
18.

The Supreme Court would then issue a final order on whether or not the DOJ
will be forced to hand over the documents.

House Intelligence Committee transcripts released Thursday night indicated
that top Obama officials acknowledged that they knew of no “empirical
evidence” of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia in the
2016 election, despite their concerns and suspicions.

No collusion - Special Counsel Robert Swan Mueller III, March 2019.

Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party ran out of gas and got run over by a Trump
truck.

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp. Obama sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood
queer liberal democrat donors.

President Trump has boosted the economy, reduced illegal immigration,
appointed dozens of judges and created jobs.

Senile loser and NAMBLA supporter Nancy Pelosi got "Trumped" on February
5, 2020. "President Trump, Not Guilty."
