DOJ files brief arguing against House impeachment probe

Jerry nadler, Chair of Judiciary Committee

The Department of Justice (DOJ) argued Friday that a federal court should reject the House Judiciary Committee’s efforts to obtain evidence and testimony from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation in part because Democrats cannot agree on the scope of the panel’s inquiry.

The DOJ noted conflicting language used by House Democrats as to whether the Judiciary Committee’s probe into obstruction of justice, among other things, amounted to an impeachment investigation, specifically citing reluctance among House leadership to label the inquiry as such.

“Most prominently, the speaker of the House has been emphatic that the investigation is not a true impeachment proceeding,” the DOJ wrote, adding that Pelosi said Democrats were “not even close” to a formal impeachment investigation.
