United States Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan, as left-leaning a judge as there ever was on the bench, has decided to temporarily block a subpoena from the Democrat’s January 6th Committee. The subpoena sought the phone records of Arizona Republican Party Chair Dr. Kelli Ward, mere days before the 2022 midterm election.
The story unfolded when Kagan, the Justice appointed to govern appeals coming from Arizona decided that the entire empaneled Supreme Court will be required to hear the case, according to Breitbart.
According to NBC News, the House Committee has until Friday, Oct. 28 to quash the subpoena before the Supreme Court takes over the situation.
The high court is also considering a similar emergency relief from Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina who is seeking to block a similar subpoena that demands his testimony related to a Georgia prosecutor’s allegations of interference in the 2020 election.
Dr. Ward and her husband Col. Michael Ward (ret.), who are both practicing physicians were among the slate of alternate Republican electors from Arizona subpoenaed by the House Committee.
Dr. Ward has made the case that her phone records would contain private information about her patients which is protected by law, and furthermore that the subpoena represents a violation of her First Amendment right to freedom of association.
After a 9/11-style joint committee of the House and Senate failed to gain the necessary support, the House committee was engineered by Pelosi to include only two ‘token’ Republicans: Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger.
Both RINOs are vehemently anti-Trump and have since been effectively drummed out of the party. By discarding the nominees sent to her by Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Pelosi defied House rules and annihilated any hint of legitimacy the committee could’ve had.
The conduct of the committee only confirmed its partisan bias, and condemned it as the sham Republicans predicted it would be.
President Joe Biden subsequently declared that the “MAGA Republicans” as he calls most of the GOP, are a “threat” to Democracy, further revealing the exercise as little more than a cudgel to pummel his opponents with.
MSNBC’s Ja’han Jones has suggested that Dr. Ward “Could ultimately be the skeleton key that unlocks a trove of details about former President Donald Trump’s scheme to overturn Arizona’s 2020 presidential election results and stay in power indefinitely.”
