Take a bow, Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Your language on Rep. Jerry Nadler’s “impeachment inquiry” — which is at both times the same thing as real impeachment and not real impeachment is — now being used by the Department of Justice to keep “Mueller’s secret files” out of the hands of other Dems: This is exactly what House Dems feared — that the inconsistent messaging on impeachment could undermine their central claim to Mueller’s secret files.

This is exactly what House Dems feared — that the inconsistent messaging on impeachment could undermine their central claim to Mueller’s secret files.

From Politico: In a new court filing on Friday, Justice Department lawyers argued that the House Judiciary Committee’s effort to obtain former special counsel Robert Mueller’s most sensitive secrets — evidence and testimony collected by a grand jury — should be denied, in part because House Democrats can’t agree on what to call their investigation. “Most prominently, the speaker of the House has been emphatic that the investigation is not a true impeachment proceeding,” the lawyers wrote, citing Pelosi’s June statement that Democrats were “not even close” to such a move. House Democrats’ attempt to access Mueller’s grand-jury information hinges on the courts acknowledging that they are conducting an impeachment investigation. The Judiciary Committee argued in late July that their impeachment investigation satisfies one of the exceptions to federal grand jury secrecy rules: that the House is engaged in an “impeachment investigation” and therefore is taking an action preliminary to a “judicial proceeding” — the Senate’s trial on whether to remove Trump from office.
