Judge Temporarily Blocks Democratic Subpoenas For Trump Financial Records After Appeals Court Intervenes

Washington Examiner

Excerpt:

A federal judge temporarily halted subpoenas issued by congressional Democrats for President Trump's financial records following intervention from an appeals court in Washington, D.C.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit sent an emoluments lawsuit against the president, which alleges that he is illegally benefiting from his businesses while serving in the Oval Office, back to a lower court on Friday to reexamine whether the separation of powers between the president and Congress had been properly considered.

According to the judges, "the District Court did not adequately address whether — given the separation of powers issues present in a lawsuit brought by members of the legislative branch against the president of the United States — resolving the legal questions and/or postponing discovery would be preferable, or whether discovery is even necessary" to establish whether congressional Democrats can intervene.

The court's decision could serve as a setback for Democratic lawmakers should Trump not be forced to prove he hasn't violated the Constitution's anti-corruption clauses, which limit a federal official's ability to accept gifts from foreign governments without Congress's approval.

All of this incessant shopping/investigating/digging to find dirt for criminal charges against anyone including Trump are all illegal because there is absolutely NO PROBABLE CAUSE FOR ANY OF IT.

This practice is both ILLEGAL and UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Yet they are being allowed to get away with it and are not being made to stop it? Congress has absolutely NO FRIKKIN' RIGHT to Trump's tax records because they have NO PROBABLE CAUSE OF ANY CRIME BEING COMMITTED AT ALL. PERIOD!

These democraps all belong in prison and worse!

Yup. As soon as probable cause is removed, the state’s various bad actors can turn people's rights upside down and the US will become a fascist state. Not Trump style (to idiots on the left) but Squad style.

Picture this scenario:

You got hired to do a job, at a VERY good salary ($174,000 a year), but spend ALL your time slandering your boss and trying to get him fired (i.e. impeached), and NEVER doing ANYTHING you're actually being paid to do.

In the private sector, how long would you keep this job?

And could those same people demanding his records stand up to any scrutiny of their financial windfalls while in office?

Do I hear crickets chirping?

Judging by the leftists that post here, that are doing what they elected them to do. Actual governing to benefit all Americans doesn’t matter to them. Only power and agenda.

But the President isn’t Congress’ boss. So this isn’t a great analogy. Trade out “slandering your boss” for “slandering the GM of another business unit”, and I think that is a little better.

Oh, don't get me started, I think I used to work for that company. Two of them, in fact. You'd be surprised how long a totally dysfunctional company can last after the original "good idea" has run out and/or the founder has passed it on to the generation who are all clueless as to why the company's even in business.
