Last week a Federal Court in New York affirmed that Trump’s tax returns had to be turned over.  The decision (below) went much further, citing that Trump has only very limited protections against indictment and even incarceration and that Trump’s financial dealings in New York were not in any way protected from indictment by a former opinion that Trump believed (and the fake news supported) that asserted otherwise.

The court, and now the Federal Appeals Court as well, said the whole thing is “bullshit” and that Trump can be indicted any day and that process, in New York, is ongoing, waiting for what just happened.

“An appeals court on Friday rejected President Trump’s plea to halt a subpoena for his financial records by the House Oversight Committee, Politico reported. The subpoena was initially issued earlier this year to the president’s accountants at Mazars USA. The 2-1 decision, with Trump-appointed D.C. Circuit Judge Neomi Rao dissenting, upholds a lower court decision that found the subpoena to be valid. The president’s income-tax returns will likely be handed over to House Democrats soon, but it’s unclear if the case will first see another appeal.”(Daily Beast)

VT: The court decision below overturns the Nixon era justice department opinion, never confirmed by the Supreme Court, that a sitting president could not be indicted.

The short introduction, including the link to the full decision, bases the claim on a number of obvious issues.

A president could be involved in crimes with others and cover for them.

Presidents are not Kings, they are both president and a private person, and this is from the founding fathers.

There are restrictions to arresting a president but not prohibitions and of the cases involved, many before Trump took office, no immunity is possible and arrest could happen at any time.

On others…issues arise here as to procedures and possible protections.  Best read it yourself rather than depend on pundits.

  1. Well with any luck Pence will be a lame duck within a year or so and the House can keep him in check until the next election. Of course the chicken hawks will be beating the war drums expecting big wampum and trying to delay the inevitable collapse of the economy. Interesting times for all. Stock up on food and water; you can’t eat ammunition.

    • but that lame duck have enoiugh time to sign executive orders to ordering bomb Iran, soot down russian planes on Syria, move thousands troops to M.E. and much more, no talk about nukes, remember LBJ….

  2. How many people could pay the court costs and suffer the uncertainty of the long and expensive litigation process with lawyers to reportedly file some 3,500 lawsuits? First, isn’t the obvious purpose here to delay, delay, delay a result? Where is the money coming from to pay the enormous lawyer fees of this scenario? It mainly must come out of the money which should have been paid to the claimants but is being delayed by the long legal process no?
    Isn’t Trump now mixing up business with personal business deliberately? This delaying tactic must be stopped. Arrest him on the criminal charges and end this legal madness. The Polish worker case dragged on over 20 years and he finally lost. Where does the money come from when he continues to lose so many cases? I guess this is why they want to see his Income Tax records no?

  3. Repugnant, Dismisses and Denies. The rise of fascists and demagogues is almost always accompanied by alteration to laws protecting the people from them.
    If you don’t stop them, all goes dark.
    ” But the union must be free from all selfish motives, and this is indicated by its being in the remote districts of the country, where people are unsophisticated, and free from the depraving effects incident to large societies. A union from such motives will cope with the greatest difficulties; and yet a word of caution is added.” – explanation of descriptor of trumps day , and the greatest disparity between the city and the country is exposure to diversity. Therefore the country is easy to rile up, as any enemy can be created from thin air.

  4. It will be a glorious day when Trump is removed and Mike Pence becomes president. He will be able to get us back into the reinstatement of the Greater Israel Project. We will attack Iran(blessedly/finally!!!), help Saudi Arabia finish off the Houthis, bring IS to dominance in Syria, wipe Lebanon off the map. These are wonderful times. He could get much good accomplished in the next year and ANY candidate that wins after him will keep up the great works. All of them have made clear their fealty to Israel, they are all god’s chosen politicians. We will finally be able to use the might of the US military as god has wanted.

    • Oh, for crying out loud . . . finish the domino run. Syria is taken out by IS, and there goes the powder keg.
      Yeah, Russia hasn’t planned a gazillion sim modules by now? Israhell does it too. Are they setting up Humpty Trumpt to fall with egg on his face, the yokes on him type chuckle?? There are way too many loose cannon ends on our side, Pence night do some really stupid “I’ll show ya” crap that NO ONE in their right minds would do, escalating, and then Syria triggers and slops over into more Kurd unrest, THEN what happens . . . well . . . Russia AND ?? Iran / China / Mystery Nation Du Jour doing whatever they fvck they want. As the world YAWNS. We have taken the magic pill FUCITOL and we all want to see where the chips fall . . . hopefully, and I’ll take a stab at the answer . . . I’m guessing . . . Israel?!?!? Wild guess. Crazy hunch?? But . . . fortunately, I wake up, and realize . . . not worth it. Why wasn’t ISIS able to BREACH Mosul and get to Erbil? Not why they didn’t? Mosul got in the whey. Western MSM spun it different, way back when I watched TV and thought I gave a carp, Mosul was dodging ISIS bullets . . . ironically, it WASN’T the Kurds getting in the whey this time, and ISIS was dodging Mosul’s bullets. Erbil says THANKS!!
