A federal judge just dismissed a case that was brought over a subpoena to compel a witness to testify before the House Intelligence Committee.
A senior White House aid, Charles Kupperman, was instructed by the White House not to testify after being served a subpoena from the Democrat-led House Intelligence committee. Kupperman then filed the lawsuit asking the judge whom he should obey.
Judge Richard Leon could see the case was important for America and put it on an expedited track. But apparently that wasn’t fast enough for the Democrats.
In a 14-page opinion, Judge Leon said he had arranged an “aggressive” schedule for the case because “the case was a matter of great consequence to the country.” However, just days later, the Democrat committee “withdrew its subpoena to Kupperman, and the House noticed the case as moot and moved to vacate the expedited briefing schedule,” because even a rushed judicial process was not sufficient.
The Democrats must be furious they didn’t get the witnesses they wanted and would rather withdraw their request than have a federal judge expose their game.
It’s almost like the Democrats prefer to make accusations where an actual court and due process can’t interfere. Did someone say impeachment?
