Trump Wins Again As Federal Court Dismisses House Democrats Case

by AmericasKeepersAdmin on February 28, 2020

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled today that the House cannot sue to enforce a subpoena requiring former White House official Don McGhan to testify before a congressional committee.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals in a 2-1 vote ruled against making McGhan testify. Back in November a federal judge ruled that McGhan would have to testify but the Justice Department appealed that ruling and today they won that appeal.

“If federal courts were to swoop in to rescue Congress whenever its constitutional tools failed, it would not just supplement the political process; it would replace that process with one in which unelected judges become the perpetual ‘overseer[s]’ of our elected officials.”
– U.S. Appeals Court Judge Thomas Griffith

The case was initially brought before the House Judiciary Committee in August in an effort to force a subpoena to get McGhan to testify about events regarding former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

The judges ruled that the Constitution forbids federal courts to resolve disputes between two branches.

The ruling today is an other big win for the Trump Administration
