Donald Trump appeared to offer New York Governor Andrew Cuomo a deal on a state immigration law if he agreed all investigations of his personal life and businesses are dropped.

In other words, the president floated a this-for-that deal focused on a personal political benefit.

If that sounds familiar, it should.

House Democrats, joined by a smattering of Republicans, admitted the US leader asked his Ukrainian counterpart for such a quid pro quo on a 25 July call that became the basis for House Democrats impeaching him late last year.

“I’m seeing Governor Cuomo today at The White House,” Trump tweeted before their mid-afternoon meeting. “He must understand that National Security far exceeds politics. New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits & harassment, start cleaning itself up, and lowering taxes.”

State prosecutors in Manhattan are seeking eight years of Trump’s tax records, according to reports. All efforts to see his financial records have greatly irked Mr. Trump since before he took office. He said as a candidate he would release some information, but he has yet to do so, angering Democrats.

  1. Trump raised our taxes by taking the PT deduction. I think there is a back burner issue, fracking. We have a Ban in place since a complete study was done. That must not be lifted, we have geological issues that have not been made public. It would be a major ecological disaster to frack upstate NY.

  2. The Founders of our country never intended a President be above the law. But this is exactly how it has turned out due to lying lawyers running and ruining everything they worked for.
    Donald Adolph Hitler is a pathological liar and cheater. He gives his middle finger to the rule of law every day. Of course he is using the full armed force of government to hide his tax returns with secrecy because he knows if they were opened to the light of day and light of truth, all his corrupt lies and tax exemptions and criminal activities would be exposed. Secrecy is the enemy of the truth. As a public official he has zero claim to hide his tax returns. Congress should get rough with him but all are whore cowards themselves on the take from Israel. America is a corrupt expletive deleted disgrace.
