Democrats want secret Mueller grand jury info for Senate impeachment trial

House Democrats continue to fight for secret grand jury information from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, saying they may use it in the Senate trial or additional articles of impeachment against President Trump.

Oral arguments are set for Friday in the case, after the Department of Justice appealed a district court judge’s October ruling that both the committee and the public have an interest in the grand jury material, which is typically kept secret and is redacted in Mueller’s report.

The House Judiciary Committee told the U.S. Court of Appeals for D.C. last week that it “continues to seek the withheld grand jury material for use in impeachment — both because the material bears on the current articles of impeachment and could accordingly be used in a Senate trial on those articles, and because the Committee is continuing to conduct its inquiry into whether the President committed other impeachable offenses.”

The response to the appeals court addressed Trump’s impeachment, saying it did not make the case moot. “The current status of the impeachment proceedings underscores the continuing controversy regarding the withheld grand-jury material,” Democratic general counsel Douglas Letter told the court.
