Toddler’s E. coli death after vacation sparks investigation amid family heartbreak

A British family is mourning the death of their 2-year-old daughter who fell critically ill on vacation and died just weeks shy of her third birthday. Allie Birchall, who was vacationing with her family at a luxury hotel in Turkey, came down with a case of E. coli that her family is pinning on poor conditions at the resort.

“We all suffered gastric illness and there were a number of people complaining of being unwell during our stay at the hotel, but we didn’t anticipate how serious it could be,” Katie Dawson, Allie’s mother, told SWNS.

The family, who has since hired a lawyer, said the food was often left uncovered or served lukewarm, and the cleanliness of the pool and bathroom facilities were often questionable.

MOM CLAIMS DIET SODA SENT HER INTO A COMA AFTER SEVERE ALLERGIC REACTION 

“We saw feces in the swimming pool and I spoke to other holidaymakers who saw the feces in the pool on more than one occasion, and staff just scooped it out without closing the pool or giving it a thorough clean,” Dawson claims.

She also claimed the children’s bathrooms were covered in feces.

When the family returned home from their 10-day stay, Allie began suffering from stomach pains and diarrhea, she also wasn’t hungry and was acting lethargic, according to SWNS.

On July 30, she was admitted to Royal Bolton Hospital, where she was diagnosed with Shiga-toxin producing E. coli (STEC), which led to hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS).

Nearly everyone is at risk of a STEC infection, which occurs when tiny amounts of human or animal feces enter the mouth. This may happen through contaminated food or water, or contact with feces of other people, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Symptoms of STEC vary for each patient, but it often causes severe stomach cramps, vomiting and bloody diarrhea. While some patients may get better within a week, others may develop life-threatening complications, such as HUS, which occurs in about 5 to 10 percent of STEC cases, according to the CDC.

Allie could not recover from the illness, and died on Aug. 3.  (SWNS)

HUS may cause decreased urination, feeling tired, and loss of color in cheeks. Patients with HUS require immediate hospitalization because of the risk of kidney failure or other serious health issues. The patients who recover within a few weeks will likely suffer long-term damage, while other cases may be fatal.

For Allie, the infection caused severe brain damage, and her family decided to end life support on Aug. 3. She died shortly after.

“In sharing Allie’s story, we want to make people more aware of the signs and symptoms of STEC HUS,” Dawson told SWNS. “I kept thinking that if I had known about the condition then I would have probably taken Allie to the hospital sooner and it wouldn’t have ended the way it did.”

Public Health England is investigating the child’s death, according to SWNS.

“Nothing will bring her back, we need to know what caused her illness and if anything could have been done to prevent it,” Dawson told the news outlet.

Pro-Hong Kong NBA fan booted from Philadelphia 76ers preseason game against Chinese team

Westlake Legal Group NBA-Free-HK Pro-Hong Kong NBA fan booted from Philadelphia 76ers preseason game against Chinese team Ryan Gaydos fox-news/world/world-regions/hong-kong fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/sports/nba/philadelphia-76ers fox-news/sports/nba fox news fnc/sports fnc article a5f30ac5-b454-5a9f-8136-95bbe502bea7

A Philadelphia 76ers fan said Wells Fargo Center security ejected him and his wife from the stands Tuesday after they brought in pro-Hong Kong signage for a preseason game against the Guangzhou Loong Lions.

Sam Wachs told CBS Philadelphia that he and his wife brought several pro-Hong Kong signs and were yelling “Free Hong Kong” during the game while also wearing a “Free Hong Kong” T-shirt. He said they were sitting behind the Guangzhou bench.

He said initially security took away the signs and then, after he started yelling, they were ejected.

Neither the 76ers nor the NBA has commented on the incident.

The Wells Fargo Center, which plays host to the 76ers and the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers, allows signs but they must be in “good taste” and management reserves the right to change its policy without notice.

NBA’S HONG KONG, CHINA BALANCING ACT INCLUDES SILENCE FROM TYPICALLY OUTSPOKEN BASKETBALL CROWD

The NBA only prohibits “obscene or indecent messages on signs or clothing.” There are no hard and fast rules on political messages.

Wachs’ ejection comes in the middle of a firestorm between the NBA and China over a tweet from Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey which read: “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong.”

Though the tweet had been deleted, the NBA and the Rockets immediately began feeling the effect. Several Chinese sportswear brands suspended ties with the Rockets. China also canceled two NBA Cares events ahead of the preseason game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn Nets.

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver has said he wasn’t going to prohibit anyone’s free speech but regretted the outcome of Morey’s tweet.

Tea Party Group Demands Adam Schiff Be Investigated For Impeachment Inquiry

NOW, this is really turning into a brawl.

On Tuesday a letter was received by the Office of Congressional Ethics in regards to the behavior of Congressman Adam Schiff who is a Democrat from California and also the Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. The letter was sent by the Tea Party Patriots Action and they want Adam to be taken to the woodshed.

According to Fox News

“Rep. Schiff has repeatedly made false statements to the public and the media in his capacity as Ranking Member and now Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence,” Jenny Beth Martin, the honorary chairman of the Tea Party Patriots, wrote in her letter.

Martin added: “These instances of blatantly false and misleading statements – as well as Rep. Schiff’s ongoing misuse of his power and authority on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to advance his partisan political interests, his fabrication of testimony, and his overt efforts to seek incriminating information from Ukrainian sources about the President of the United States – bring into question Rep. Schiff’s suitability to continue to serve as Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, in particular when the critical subject that Rep. Schiff is making much of relates to the Ukraine.”

Schiff was a constant voice howling to anyone in the media during the Russian collusion investigation that you just had to wait until Robert Mueller and his team turned over that report. Even after Mueller released the report and found no collusion he still was saying that “Undoubtedly there is collusion,” AFTER A.G. Barr released a summary that the report later verified that there was not.

You might think he would have learned from that debacle and have taken a step back and relax.

Nope.

As Jenny Beth Martin indicates from her letter above, it seems Chairman Schiff might have totally missed the life lesson here and double-downed on his Trump Derangement Syndrome. Hopefully, his Congressional gold plated health care plan covers that.

Schiff embarrassed himself with his made-up conversation that he read aloud last week during a meeting of his committee, where he imagined a phone call between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and President Trump. Schiff later claimed it was meant as satire but he gave no indication of that before or after the reading of it. Also, no one from Saturday Night Live picked up the phone to offer him a job so you know that is was really bad and was not even remotely funny.

Also, his getting duped by two Russian Howard Stern wanna be’s doing a  prank caller about getting compromising photos of Trump shows that he is in way over his head. That does not bode well for someone who sees a lot of TOP SECRET material vital to this nation’s national security.

That Nancy Pelosi has not yet pulled the plug on his antics is surprising. This also indicates that while Pelosi was trying to slow-walk impeachment talk after the Russian collusion story failed, she is now double-downed to go after Trump in this manner. Even if she has to stomach the misfires of Adam Schiff.

The O.C.E. is supposed to be one of those arms in the legislative branch that operates as an impartial referee and calls as they see it. I would really love to say that this will get a fair shake and Schiff will be punished for his odd behavior over the past two years. Unfortunately, I don’t have the confidence that will happen.

Hopefully, more groups will follow the T.P.P. lead and demand that some sort of action is taken to reign in this weird behavior of Schiff.

If not he will continue to try out his comedy routine on deadly serious matters to this country and no one will be laughing about the result.

Gregg Jarrett: Did Mueller lie to Congress about meeting with Trump before he took the special counsel job?

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6093270587001_6093271491001-vs Gregg Jarrett: Did Mueller lie to Congress about meeting with Trump before he took the special counsel job? Gregg Jarrett fox-news/politics/justice-department fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/politics fox-news/opinion fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 80a2030f-c157-56f9-a1d0-7f7550074ad6

Editor’s note: This column is adapted from Gregg Jarrett’s new book “Witch Hunt: The Story Of The Greatest Mass Delusion In American Political History.”

It has always been suspicious that Robert Mueller met with President Trump in the Oval Office the day before he was officially appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to investigate Trump.

Newly uncovered documents show that Mueller and Rosenstein had been privately communicating in the days before that meeting. They worked sedulously to keep it a secret. Trump had no idea that Mueller was already on board to serve as special counsel.

So, why was Mueller there in the Oval? Was it part of a scheme to furtively gather evidence that, as special counsel, he could then use against Trump? Did he lure the president into a conversation under false pretenses? The answer appears to be yes. 

GREGG JARRETT: THE PELOSI-SCHIFF ‘WITCH HUNT’ TO IMPEACH TRUMP IS AN ABUSE OF POWER

When I interviewed president Trump for my new book, “Witch Hunt: The Story Of The Greatest Mass Delusion In American Political History,” I asked him why Mueller was there:

President Trump: “Mueller wanted very badly to have the job as FBI director and to return to the FBI. I didn’t want him. I rejected him. By the way, how much of a conflict is it when a guy comes in wanting a job, I say no, and the next day he’s your special prosecutor? It’s outrageous.”     

It was outrageous. It seems increasingly clear that Trump was being set-up, and that Mueller was neither forthcoming nor honest during the meeting.

He deliberately concealed from the president that he was about to launch a damaging investigation that threatened Trump’s presidency. The duplicity was more than a sufficient basis to require that he disqualify himself from the special counsel position.

The president’s account of his meeting with Mueller was corroborated by his then-assistant, Madeleine Westerhout, who arranged it and was privy to its purpose and content. I questioned her about this. She confirmed to me that, without a doubt, Mueller had been there interviewing for the job of FBI director. Recently, multiple administration officials backed up this account to Fox News. Newly released records also substantiate it.

There has been widespread speculation about Mueller’s intentions. Tuesday, Fox News’ Bret Baier and Jake Gibson reported that Mueller was indeed “pursuing the open post as the director of the FBI – something the former Russia probe special counsel denied under oath during congressional testimony this summer.”

So, has Mueller been lying about this all along? Consider his July 24, 2019 testimony before congress:

Mueller: “My understanding was I was not applying for the job.  I was asked to give my input on what it would take to do the job.

Question: So it is your statement that you didn’t interview to apply for the FBI director job?

Mueller: That’s correct.”

Mueller also denied telling Vice President Pence that he wanted to return to the top FBI post.

The last time I checked, failing to tell the truth under oath before Congress constitutes perjury. But it goes deeper than that. Much deeper.

During my June 2019 interview of President Trump, I asked him directly whether he and Mueller specifically discussed the reason Comey had been fired:

Jarrett: “Was there any discussion at all about your having just fired Comey?  Did you say to him, ‘This is why I fired Comey’?”

President Trump: (long pause)  I have no comment.”

Trump then told me he could easily answer the question because he had a strong recollection of their discussion that day.  However, he was reluctant to delve back into it.  “I just want to put this stupid thing to bed,” he offered by way of explanation.

The reader can draw his or her own conclusion. But it was abundantly clear to me, sitting there in the Oval Office with the President and judging his reaction and demeanor, that the answer was “yes.” Of course, they had talked about why Comey had just been fired. It would have been a natural, and perhaps necessary, subject. It is hard to imagine a scenario in which it would not have come up. 

This would make Mueller a fact witness in his own investigation, which is strictly forbidden.  A person cannot serve as both prosecutor and witness in the same case.  It is an egregious conflict of interest.

Under questioning from Congress, Mueller was directly asked whether the president discussed with him the firing of Comey.  The special counsel replied, “Cannot remember.” Right. Then, the ensuing exchange took place:

Question: “You don’t remember?  But if he did, you could’ve been a fact witness as to the President’s comments and state of mind on firing James Comey.

Mueller:  I suppose that’s possible.” 

More from Opinion

It is difficult to fathom that Mueller could not remember a critical Oval Office conversation with the President that would have required his recusal.  More likely, the special counsel knew his disqualifying conflict of interest had been exposed and sought to deflect it by claiming total memory lapse.

Fox News has confirmed that the current investigation into the origins of the 2016 FBI Russia “collusion” case has now been expanded based on the findings of U.S. Attorney John Durham.  My colleague Catherine Herridge has reported there is new scrutiny of the Mueller appointment and the coordination between Rosenstein and Mueller in the days before he was named special counsel.

As Trump told me, “Bob Mueller should never have been allowed to do this case.”  The evidence continues to mount that the president was right.

Rep. Biggs: Adam Schiff has ‘crossed the Rubicon and needs to be disciplined’ by House

Westlake Legal Group Andy-Biggs-Adam-Sciff Rep. Biggs: Adam Schiff has 'crossed the Rubicon and needs to be disciplined' by House Julia Musto fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc f053d6ef-d8e1-5971-8e68-43700bae8696 article

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif., needs to be “disciplined” for his actions during the Trump impeachment inquiry, Rep. Andy Biggs said Wednesday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with host Steve Doocy, the Arizona Republican said that Schiff has brought any potential disciplinary action on himself.

After the White House sent a scathing letter to House Democrats calling their impeachment inquiry ‘illegitimate’ and singling out Schiff over his role in the whistleblower controversy, more than 90 members of the House have motioned to condemn and censure him. And, Biggs is leading the charge.

TRUMP SAYS SCHIFF ‘HELPED WRITE’ WHISTLEBLOWER COMPLAINT, AFTER HOUSE PANELS ADMITS ADVANCE KNOWLEDGE

In addition, the conservative nonprofit group Tea Party Patriots Action sent a letter Tuesday to the Office of Congressional Ethics demanding that it investigate whether Schiff had violated House rules.

“I think when he dropped the blatantly fake, fraudulent, phone call transcript on the American people, it did a couple of things,” mused Biggs. “It misled the American people, brought the House in disrepute, and quite frankly it was over an edge and just pushed everybody over the edge.”

“We’ve been watching him for two-and-a-half years now abuse the process and we just felt like, ‘Oh my goodness, we’ve crossed the Rubicon here. He needs to be disciplined,'” Schiff told Doocy.

SCHIFF SAYS ‘WE’ DIDN’T TALK TO WHISTLEBLOWER — THEN BACKTRACKS

“When he started going into closed-door sessions, when he started leaking information from emails contextually to support his position when the overall package of emails actually undercuts his position,” said Biggs, “then you know that the fix is in, in the sense that he’s not going to let fairness and due process happen here.”

“That’s why you have to have a formal vote,” he stated.

The president and his legal team have also been hitting Schiff hard. On Tuesday, the president’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told The Washington Post he wouldn’t testify in front of the House Intelligence Committee as long as Schiff is still in charge.

“I wouldn’t testify in front of that committee until there is a vote of Congress and he is removed,” said Giuliani. “Let them hold me in contempt. We’ll go to court. We’ll challenge the contempt.”

The president took to Twitter on Tuesday, writing: “Hasn’t Adam Schiff been fully discredited by now? Do we have to continue listening to his lies?”

Biggs said things would be differerent if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., were in charge. “If [Pelosi] had the vote, we’d actually set the rules package to go with the inquiry. So, Republicans could subpoena witnesses, the president could have his counsel there, and we’d have an open transparent process and it would be fair and the American people could see what was there and wasn’t there,” Biggs remarked.

“But when you start moving behind closed doors, you’ve obviated the whole system of due process in the most somber – as she said – the most somber proceeding in the country,” he said.

“What we find out over and over again is that this stuff…hasn’t happened organically,” Biggs concluded. “It has happened through [the] manipulation of systems and processes to bring about these investigations. Whether you go back to Mueller…and Comey’s manipulation there to this right now…I think we’ll find out more.”

New York Jets’ Sam Darnold to start Sunday in return after mono

Westlake Legal Group NFL-Sam-Darnold4 New York Jets' Sam Darnold to start Sunday in return after mono Ryan Gaydos fox-news/sports/nfl/new-york-jets fox-news/sports/nfl fox-news/person/sam-darnold fox news fnc/sports fnc article ad39bb4f-3a86-55fe-a2f6-cb025ff86c9d

New York Jets quarterback Sam Darnold has been cleared to return to play the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday and will start, the team announced.

Darnold has been out since the second week of the season after being diagnosed with mono. It was feared that Darnold could have been out for about eight weeks but he appeared at practice last week prior to the Jets’ blowout loss against the Philadelphia Eagles.

TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS OFFENSIVE LINEMAN PLAYED WITH BROKEN ARM, BRUCE ARIANS SAYS

“I feel good. Energy’s awesome,” Darnold told ESPN New York’s “The Michael Kay Show” on Monday prior to his official clearance. “Just looking to play this week, but [have to] wait for the doctor’s orders tomorrow. I’m excited to hear the news, I have a feeling it’s going to be good news.

“I thought maybe it would come last week, but had to wait it out again. Hopefully this week it’s better news and I get to practice and get ready for a game on Sunday.”

Darnold was at the helm during the Jets’ first game of the season against the Buffalo Bills. The Jets lost the game 17-16 and have lost every game since then.

AJ GREEN TRADE RUMORS BRING STERN WARNING FROM BENGALS CORNERBACK: ‘IT BETTER NOT HAPPEN’

Jets coach Adam Gase said Monday the team still has to get better even with Darnold’s return.

“It’s probably more than just Sam getting out there,” he said. “We have a lot of other things to clean up. Sam is able to hide things sometimes for us, where if we make a mistake, he covers it up. I think we just need to do a better job as a group making sure that all 11 are on the same page.”

In Darnold’s absence, the Jets have used Trevor Siemian and Luke Falk as the quarterbacks. Siemian was injured in his first game against the Cleveland Browns and Falk has not been the player the Jets thought could have got the job done in Darnold’s absence.

Los Angeles proposes ban on e-cigarettes, vaping devices

Westlake Legal Group Vaping100819 Los Angeles proposes ban on e-cigarettes, vaping devices fox-news/us/us-regions/west/california fox-news/health/respiratory-health/stop-smoking fox-news/health fox news fnc/us fnc Brie Stimson article 2d2fc8eb-fa8b-56b2-8f20-1ed0984f0099

Officials at a Los Angeles city council meeting Tuesday proposed banning all e-cigarettes and vaping devices until they are deemed safe by the federal Food and Drug Administration, according to reports.

The potential move would follow places like San Francisco and Massachusetts that have enacted similar e-cigarette bans in the wake of a spate of lung illnesses thought to be linked to the products, The Los Angeles Times reported.

NEW YORK IDENTIFIES FIRST VAPING-RELATED DEATH AS BRONX TEEN

“The reports of illness and death caused by unregulated vaping devices is a public health crisis,” the motion introduced by Councilman Paul Koretz reads. “Los Angeles is not content to wait and do nothing as the numbers of illnesses and even deaths associated with unregulated vaping devices increases daily.”

Los Angeles County has already banned flavored e-cigarettes and menthol cigarettes, something states like Michigan and New York have done and the Trump administration supports.

At least 18 people have died from the recent lung illnesses, but the cause remains a bit of a mystery, according to The Times.

Experts who oppose the bans say that they will just push smokers trying to quit back to using cigarettes or illegal products.

“What bans like this are likely to do is increase the use of illicit products and decrease regulation, which ironically will expand the use of the products that are causing folks to get sick,” Northeastern University Professor Leo Beletsky told The Times.

Trey Gowdy to join Trump’s legal team on impeachment inquiry: report

Former U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., is joining President Trump’s legal team as outside counsel for the House’s expanding impeachment inquiry, according to a report.

An administration official who spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity confirmed Gowdy’s hiring Tuesday.

Gowdy, who formerly chaired the House Oversight and Reform Committee, decided not seek to reelection last year and joined the law firm Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP after leaving office.

He has also been a Fox News contributor but the network would not immediately comment on Gowdy’s status after the Associated Press report.

WHITE HOUSE ANNOUNCES IT WILL NOT COMPLY WITH ‘ILLEGITIMATE AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL’ IMPEACHMENT INQUIRY

The White House wrote in an eight-page letter to Congress on Tuesday that it won’t participate in what it’s calling an “illegal” investigation, writing that the inquiry “violates fundamental fairness and constitutionally mandated due process” and “lacks any legitimate constitutional foundation.”

“The White House should be warned that continued efforts to hide the truth of the President’s abuse of power from the American people will be regarded as further evidence of obstruction,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement responding to the letter. “Mr. President, you are not above the law.

Alabama‘s capital city of Montgomery, known as the birthplace of the civil rights movement, elected an African-American mayor Tuesday for the first time in the city’s nearly 200-year history.

Steven Reed, who became Montgomery County’s first African-American probate judge in 2012, won about 67 percent of the vote in a nonpartisan runoff election, according to unofficial results released Tuesday night.

Reed defeated David Woods, a white television station owner, after the two earned the most votes in a 12-person election in August, the New York Times reported. He will replace the current mayor of Montgomery, Todd Strange, who chose not to run for reelection after a decade in office, the Montgomery Advertiser reported. Reed will be sworn in Nov. 12.

“This election has never been about me,” Reed said in his victory speech. “This election has never been about just my ideas. It’s been about all the hopes and dreams we have as individuals and collectively in this city.”

“Montgomery is a city with limitless potential, a city that has no limits outside of our imagination,” Reed continued. “The only thing that can hold us back is our fears. When we come together there’s nothing that we can’t accomplish. “

In his concession speech, Woods said: “We’re just going to go forward and try to support Steven Reed as mayor. And I just want to encourage everyone to try to continue to work together to bring Montgomery as a unified city. A unified Montgomery is a lot stronger than a divided Montgomery.”

Montgomery has historically been a hotbed for racial tension. Southern delegates gathered in Montgomery in 1861 to vote to form the Confederacy. The city is also home to the church where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. organized the Montgomery bus boycott, in which Rosa Parks became a symbol of the 1960s civil rights movement.

Reed was endorsed by Democratic 2020 hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox, Montgomery’s WSFA-TV reported. His father, Joe Reed, is the longtime leader of the black caucus of the Alabama Democratic Party.

Justice Dept. must turn over material related to Mueller grand jury, judge rules

Westlake Legal Group AP19203352203125 Justice Dept. must turn over material related to Mueller grand jury, judge rules fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox news fnc/politics fnc Brie Stimson article 87b4290d-df90-557f-9ae2-6bea140f1919

A federal judge Tuesday ordered the Justice Department to disclose some material relating grand jury information from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

Chief Judge Beryl A. Howell balked at the Justice Department’s appeal to deny a House Judiciary Committee request for grand jury materials, including redacted portions of Mueller’s report, ordering the department to reveal which and how many FBI witness interview reports have been turned over to the committee and how many they plan to turn over, The Washington Post reported.

The judge also said the department must explain why it was withholding interviews with witnesses who didn’t go before the grand jury.

Howell’s ruling came after hours of testimony from lawyers for House Democrats and the Justice Department.

“This is not a situation of us getting all sorts of materials,” a lawyer for House Democrats said. “We’re getting almost nothing.”

The judge, appointed by former President Obama in 2010, called some of DOJ’s arguments for withholding information “extreme,” citing the department’s contention that some of the material from the Watergate grand jury should not have been turned over to Congress during the impeachment inquiry into former President Nixon.

“Wow, OK,” Howell said, according to The Post. “As I said, the department is taking extraordinary positions in this case.”

The Justice Department argued that a 1974 federal appeals court decision that said impeachment proceedings are exempt from grand jury secrecy rules is no longer valid because a U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit this year tightened requirements to exclude impeachment proceedings.

The judge also ordered the DOJ to disclose by Friday whether the Mueller team had disclosed grand jury information when asking for help from other countries, explaining that she wanted to know if the DOJ was withholding information from Congress that had already been shared with foreign countries.

Republicans have also argued that a formal impeachment inquiry isn’t taking place until the House has a vote on impeachment. Democrats deny a vote needs to take place.

The judge hasn’t said when she’ll make a decision on whether DOJ has to turn over the material.

The lawsuit predates the impeachment inquiry into President Trump over a phone call with Ukraine’s president in which he asked him to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
