DOJ tried to fight it...they said the SCOTUS was wrong when they rules Impeachment hearing constitute a government grand jury.

The announcement came just one day before the House was scheduled to vote to authorize civil action against Barr for his refusal to produce the documents.

During a two-hour hearing, Beryl Howell, chief judge for the U.S. District Court, challenged the Justice Department to explain its “extraordinary position” of trying to block lawmakers from seeing the special counsel’s grand jury materials, which include testimony and evidence that has been kept private since the Mueller probe ended in March.

Trump DOJ Argues Court Was Wrong to Hand Over Grand Jury Material in Nixon Impeachment Inquiry - and that is their defence why not to hand over the Mueller testimonies. 'Literally Relitigating Watergate'

DOJ defense - "if the Watergate case came before the court today, there would be a "different result."
(stating ...if tried today the courts would not allow the House impeachment of Nixon records to be released!)


""Wow, okay," said Beryl Howell the chief judge for the U.S. District Court who was hearing the Trump DOJ case. "The department is taking an extraordinary position in this case."

"You know you're on the wrong side of history—and the law—when you're arguing that Nixon turned over too many documents," tweeted Chris Yu, fellow at the Miller Center.


"The DOJ has been diminished to arguing that Nixon’s impeachment inquiry was illegal in order to protect Trump." Spencer Hsu on Twitter

What is up with republicans need to defend crooks?

The reason - the party decided it would represents the worst group of corrupted republicans they could find.

Does anyone want to connect the time line of Trump and Russia...again the Syria thing...only helped Russia, Making Ukraine the 'bad country'; takes the pressure off Russia

Look at the time line before the Republican National Convention, where Trump removed any help to Ukraine

2016 RNC Delegate: Trump Directed Change To Party Platform On Ukraine Support


The formal printed 2016 Republican platform is placed on the chairs of the state delegates on the floor of the Republican National Convention on July 18, 2016, in Cleveland. One part of the platform that changed was about U.S. assistance to Ukraine

Again a position that helped Russia

Why don't we just start hitting Trump with the fact he has done everything Russia has asked.

Man.
Defending obstruction and truthiness.
What a world.
What a fcked up party.

And I totally remember the platform revisions (b/c I'm a geek who watches conventions)! It was queer and I felt not covered enough. But you know Trump was running a three-ring-circus and Cruz was making his very last principled stand, so then there's that....
