Live from NPR News, I'm Jack Speer.

The US supreme court is temporarily blocking a Lower Court order requiring the Trump justice department to turn over the House judiciary committee secret evidence compelled by the Grand Jury during the investigation by special council, Robert Muller last year. More from NPR's Nina Totenberg.

The evidence being withheld by the Trump justice department was first requested more than a year ago, prior to the beginning of former impeachment proceedings against president Trump. In a filing with the supreme court this week the House argued that information is nonetheless still relevant to an ongoing investigation and could evenly do new impeachment charges against Trump. Two lower courts have ordered the evidence turned over to the House judiciary committee but the Trump administration appealed and now the supreme court has put those orders on hold while the justices decide whether to tackle another big Trump related legal case. Even if high court does agree to hear the case, the justices are unlikely to decide it until after the election. Nina Totenberg NPR News, Washington.
