“Wow, OK” DoJ denies House access to Mueller grand jury material because Nixon made the same mistake

2 min read

Incredulous how DoJ is arguing that Watergate is a bad precedent, then again this is an administration of alternative facts and revisionist history. 

Have you read the Constitution? The House is effectively acting as a grand jury, and articles of impeachment are basically an indictment. No defendant gets to call witnesses in this phase of an investigation. That happens at trial, which here would take place in the Senate.
