This will warm your heart. New York Times:

Breaking News Update: The House is legally engaged in an impeachment inquiry, a federal judge ruled on Friday, delivering a major victory to House Democrats and undercutting arguments by President Trump and Republicans that the investigation is a sham.

The House Judiciary Committee is entitled to view secret grand jury evidence gathered by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, Judge Beryl A. Howell of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia ruled in a 75-page opinion. Attorney General William P. Barr had withheld the material from lawmakers.

Typically, Congress has no right to view secret evidence gathered by a grand jury. But in 1974, the courts permitted the committee weighing whether to impeach President Richard M. Nixon to see such materials — and, Judge Howell ruled, the House is now engaged in the same process focused on Mr. Trump.

So much for the impeachment is a scam or a form of presidential harassment argument. Oh, mark this day on the calendar, this is glorious. A gift for the GOP ghouls just in time for Trick or Treat.

This is a developing story and will be updated.

‘Bombshell’ has become over-used in regard to this administration. So many ‘bombshells’…and not one thing has changed – these criminals still control everything.

Well the thing to remember is that for sure there’s 10 counts of obstruction that Mueller “didn’t indict”. And there was collusion that Mueller didn’t pursue for basically the same reason. That bull crap about charging sitting president which was thrown out by I am thinking two different court rulings this week.
