(Republican Party News) – A federal appeals court has now changed direction concerning a court ruling that ordered the Republican National Committee to comply with a subpoena from the infamous Democratic Party political weapon known as the House Jan. 6 committee. The court stuck a finger straight in the eye of the investigation over vacillating on specific key issues and for acknowledging there were “important and unsettled constitutional questions” concerning whether the panel is lawfully constituted.
“The U.S. Circuit Court for Appeals or the District of Columbia said it was dismissing the case because the Jan. 6 committee withdrew the subpoena to the RNC seeking records of its dealings with a digital fund-raising vendor Salesforce,” Just the News stated.
“The RNC’s appeal has become moot,” the appeals court stated in its ruling which dismissed the case.
If you are interested in reading the entire ruling, you can do so here.
Usually, when there is a dispute that is withdrawn, a federal appeals court will put out a very short order of dismissal.
However, the appellate judges went above and beyond in this case to acknowledge the RNC’s concerns over the J6 panel’s subpoena and how it brought up important topics of discussion, noting the ruling of the lower court needed to be reversed.
If you listen closely, you can hear the voices of millions of liberals all over the country crying out in pure misery. Then again, that’s pretty much what they do every day, right? Nothing out of the ordinary here.
“The RNC claimed that disclosure of these documents would reveal sensitive information about its digital strategy, so it sued to prevent the disclosure,” the appeals judges said in their decision. “The RNC argued that the Committee was not lawfully constituted and that the subpoena violated the First Amendment.”
“Because the Committee caused the mootness and thereby deprived us of the ability to review the district court’s decision, and given the important and unsettled constitutional questions that the appeal would have presented, we vacate the district court’s judgment,” they went on to say.
Another issue the court had with the House Democrat committee was over how they were engaging in a not-so-rousing round of “hurry up, then wait.”
“The Committee has taken various positions on whether and when it needs the subpoenaed RNC documents,” the judges pointed out, going on to cite a lengthy history of urgent requests that were then followed by delay and eventually withdrawal of the subpoena.
This isn’t the only pushback against the J6 committee. A report from WND has revealed that there are three individuals who are fighting back against this clear assault on former President Trump and those who support him, including Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn.
The WND report noted that Flynn actually sought out a restraining order against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the rest of her partisan committee.
The request said, “General Flynn did not organize, speak at, or actively participate in any rallies or protests in Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021, and he of course did not participate in the attack on the Capitol that day. Ex. A, Declaration of Michael Flynn (‘Flynn Decl.’) 5. Nevertheless, the Select Committee—assuming the role of shadow prosecutor for the January 6 attack and working in parallel with the actual prosecutors at the Department of Justice—has diverted its attention from its important work to target General Flynn for a quasi-prosecution that is either aimless or transparently partisan.”
He then stated, “Despite not participating in any public events in Washington on January 6, Defendants have issued General Flynn a sweeping subpoena seeking twenty different categories of documents and a demand that General Flynn appear for a deposition in Washington, D.C. The subpoena demands records of General Flynn’s communications about the 2020 election, and seeks to identify the basis for his beliefs and the persons with whom he associated, in addition to contacts with government officials. It thus constitutes a frontal assault on his 1st Amendment rights to freedom of speech, association, and petition.”
The Washington Examiner also went on to say that Perry was opting not to appear before the committee, insisting that Pelosi and her new political weapon, the commission, wasn’t even legitimate to begin with.
