What does the traitor have to hide?:

Arizona Republican Party Chairwoman Kelli Ward filed an emergency request to the Supreme Court on Wednesday, asking that justices block a request from the House Jan. 6 committee for her phone records.
The committee investigating the attack on the Capitol is interested in Ward’s phone records because she helped lead efforts in Arizona to challenge the results of the 2020 election there. A federal appeals court on Monday upheld a ruling requiring that Ward turn in her phone records to the committee. That ruling, issued over the weekend, came from a three-judge panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.
Ward has argued that the committee’s request would chill her First Amendment rights.
In her emergency filing to the Supreme Court, Ward argued that, if her phone and text message records are disclosed, “congressional investigators are going to contact every person who communicated with her during and immediately after the tumult of the 2020 election.”
“There can be no greater chill on public participation in partisan politics than a call, visit, or subpoena, from federal investigators,” Ward argues.
The petition will go to Justice Elena Kagan, who is designated to hear emergency matters from the 9th Circuit. Kagan will decide whether to block the earlier court rulings or ask the committee for a response to the request and refer the issue to the full court.
As our colleagues have reported, Ward helped Trump mount a baseless campaign claiming the presidential election had been rigged.

She should have the secret service smash it with a hammer. That’s what innocent people do.

Granted by justice kagan. I guess she’s part of some unethical Thomas cabal right?


life is so much easier if you just take administrative stays at face value for what they are
