The Supreme Court just handed Trump a huge win and the Dems in the House a major loss and gave Trump what he wanted regarding the Mueller report.

The Supreme Court just granted a Trump administration request to temporarily shield redacted grand jury materials from the Dems in the House.

They want these grand jury transcripts as they claim they are related to Robert Mueller’s Russia probe and we all know how that turned out.

From The Hill:

The Trump administration on Thursday asked the Supreme Court to shield redacted grand jury materials related to former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe from the Democratic-led House.

The 37-page request, filed by the Justice Department, asks the justices to temporarily block the release of transcripts and other documents that Democratic lawmakers initially requested as part of the House impeachment inquiry into President Trump.

The move comes after a federal appeals court in Washington ruled earlier this year that the administration could not keep under wraps certain materials stemming from Mueller’s 22-month investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

The Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee has long argued that access to the information would provide a more complete picture of Mueller’s findings related to Trump’s alleged obstruction of the special counsel’s nearly two-year probe, as well his 2016 campaign’s interactions with Russian government officials.

Mueller did not establish that the Trump campaign criminally coordinated with Moscow. The special counsel declined to say if the president obstructed justice, but Attorney General William Barr and then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein concluded he had not.

In its court filing Thursday, the administration told the Supreme Court it would be filing a forthcoming appeal of the lower court ruling, and asked justices to shield the grand jury materials until they after they’ve had time to consider a formal petition.
