Article:

The Supreme Court on Wednesday temporarily blocked the House of Representatives from getting secret grand jury testimony of ex-special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

The court in an unsigned order kept previously undisclosed details from the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election out of the hands of Democratic lawmakers at least until early summer.

The high court will decide then whether to extend its hold.

A federal appeals court in Washington ruled in March that the documents should be turned over because the House Judiciary Committee’s need for the material in its investigation of President Trump outweighed the Justice Department’s interests in keeping the testimony secret.

Mueller’s 448-page report, issued in April 2019, “stopped short” of reaching conclusions about Trump’s conduct, including whether he obstructed justice, to avoid stepping on the House’s impeachment power, the appeals court said.

The committee argued that it needed access to the underlying grand jury material to make its own determinations about the president’s actions, the court said.

If it's "unsigned" is it really an "Order" ???

IMHO, No.

Shouldn't really matter which side of the aisle anyone is one; this is abhorrent and constitutionally repugnant. The USA DOES NOT operate with "Star Chambers." This is NOT Kafka's "The trial".

Blocking information that pertains to a criminal act perpetrated against the American people is, in itself, a criminal act, imho.

As long as the courts block the release of the grand jury testimony, the Democrats can claim that the public is being denied the truth.  Once the Democrats have the testimony in their hands, the public will be denied the truth.
