Brett Kavanaugh is about to do the one thing that could turn Mueller’s life into a living hell
Robert Mueller couldn’t believe it.
Someone finally stood up to his crusade to take down Donald Trump.
And Brett Kavanaugh is about to do the one thing that could turn Mueller’s life into a living hell.
Robert Mueller’s string of legal victories ended when the Supreme Court stepped in and put a stay on a lower court’s order that an unknown foreign company comply with Mueller’s subpoena or risk a contempt citation as well as financial penalties.
NBC News reports:
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. on Sunday night ordered a weeklong pause on an ongoing subpoena fight, which may be the first known incidence of the high court weighing in on legal proceedings related to the Mueller probe into alleged Trump campaign collusion with Russia.
Roberts temporarily stayed an order holding an unnamed foreign government-owned company in contempt of court and accruing financial penalties for every day it does not comply with a subpoena the company has been challenging for months.
The stay will give the Supreme Court seven days to decide if the justices want to intervene in the case, and it could be the first time the full court hears a completely sealed court case, according to CNN.
The firm fighting the subpoena asked the Supreme Court to intervene after a D.C. Circuit Court panel ruled Tuesday that it was not immune to subpoenas because of its connection to a foreign government and the laws in the company’s home country, according to Politico.
New Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh could provide the pivotal swing vote to shut down Mueller’s endless flurry of subpoenas.
And this could be another sign – along with Trump’s selection of Matt Whitaker to serve as acting Attorney General – that accountability and adult supervisions is being imposed on Mueller’s quest to overturn the results of the 2016 election.
Should the Supreme Court shutdown Robert Mueller’s rigged witch hunt?
