The U.S. Court of Appeals plans to hear two impeachment cases on January 3rd.
The Daily Caller reports: "Two three-judge panels will hear back-to-back arguments on two separate matters. The first is a dispute over a House Judiciary Committee subpoena for grand jury materials from former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. The second involves another House subpoena compelling the testimony of former White House counsel Don McGahn."
The Daily Caller continues:
House Democrats prevailed before federal trials judges in both cases, prompting appeals to the D.C. Circuit. The Department of Justice is fighting both subpoenas. The D.C. Circuit temporarily halted release of the Mueller grand jury materials Oct. 29, just hours before their scheduled release. The judge in the McGahn case put her own ruling on hold for seven days, pursuant to an agreement between the Justice Department and House Democrats.
Whether either case will change the course of the impeachment inquiry is unclear. Top House Democrats are advancing toward a floor vote on articles of impeachment at a fast clip. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff will send a report arguing for Trump’s impeachment to the House Judiciary Committee in the coming days. That panel will hold its own hearings on the impeachment inquiry shortly thereafter.
Although they have found no evidence of an impeachable offense committed by President Trump, House Democrats continue with their bogus impeachment inquiry.
On Tuesday, the House Judiciary Committee led by Chairman Jerry Nadler announced that they would be holding their own impeachment hearings next week and invited President Trump to testify.
Nadler's hearings are called the “the constitutional grounds for presidential impeachment,” and the structure will be different than Rep. Adam Schiff's hearings considering they will include legal experts who will give their opinions on whether or not the president committed an impeachable offense.
Breitbart reports: "In a whistleblower complaint, a partisan CIA officer mischaracterized President Trump’s conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, alleging the president pressured the European leader to investigate allegations of corruption against former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, in exchange for U.S. military aid. The White House countered this framing of the call with a transcript of the conversation showing neither Trump nor Zelensky tying the potential investigation to the aid money."
Nadler also said in a letter that the House Intelligence Committee plans to submit their report, recommending impeachment against the President, stating that there was “a months-long effort in which President Trump again sought foreign interference in our elections for his personal and political benefit at the expense of our national interest”; and that the president conducted “an unprecedented campaign of obstruction in an effort to prevent the Committees from obtaining documentary evidence and testimony.”
