US Chief Justice Puts Hold on Disclosure of Russia Investigation Materials

U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts on Friday put a temporary hold on the disclosure to a Democratic-led House of Representatives committee of grand jury material redacted from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The block will remain in place while the court considers what action to take. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled in March that the materials had to be disclosed to the House Judiciary Committee and refused to put that decision on hold. The appeals court said the materials had to be handed over by May 11 if the Supreme Court did not intervene.

  1. I remember the Democrats passed laws to block disclosure or grand jury transcripts. Why is that no longer what they want?

  2. This is a reasonable action, but I do hope the justices manage to avoid a partisan ruling.

  3. The Supreme Court has become much more political in recent years. Chief Justice Roberts is a Republican…what else would you expect?

    1. Bull crap. Chief Justice Roberts was a Republican when he figured out a way to uphold Obamacare as a tax despite Obama telling us repeatedly that it wasn’t a tax. So when he makes a decision that favors Republicans than he’s simply being partisan but when he makes a decision that favors the Democrats than he’s upholding truth, justice and the American Way? Such BS.

  4. The no-collusion-total-vindication President always acts like he has something to hide, whenever it comes to disclosing to the public the information gathered by its government.

  5. The question before The Court is how to let THE ETERNAL ASS HOLE trumpuke look like the traitorous shit he is without pissing him off.

    1. Idiots fear Domuments generated by Democrats from being eeleased. The house of cards orchestrated by the Democrats is crumbling.

    2. Classy. When Democrats have nothing to back them up they resort to name calling and just plan stupid rhetoric. And John is just proving my point. Be a grown up!

      1. A trumphuckelican quibbling about class.
        That is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo richly ironic

    3. John, you certainly have a way with words. Such talent should make you proud to be a Demoncrat. Now go out and molest a young boy like your compadres.
