Does the dissenting opinion of this Trump-appointed judge put a lie to Chief Justice Roberts’ claim that there are …”no Obama Judges, or Trump judges, or Bush judges”….?
Judge Reo’s opinions don’t seem to hold up under the microscope of ruling on the Constitutionality of actions by the House.
“Rao, meanwhile, wrote a dissent arguing that the Constitution forbids Congress from investigating “illegal conduct by the President” unless that investigation takes place during an impeachment investigation.
As Tatel noted in the court’s majority opinion, “no case law supports the dissent.” Rather, the Supreme Court’s decisions establish that “Congress’s ‘authority … to require pertinent disclosures in aid of its own constitutional power is not abridged’ merely ‘because the information sought to be elicited may also be of use’ in criminal prosecutions.”
Her opinions appear protective of Trump and not of the Constitution.
