More than his campaign funds, I want the World to know how much he owes Russia - Seems the answer could be around $2Billion, which is about what his properties are worth, according to Forbes. Deutsche Bank was the only one who would lend him a dime back in the 90's and the amount they funded for his real estate scams was around $2Billion, $450Million of which he refused to repay and none of which he can now make payments on. Banks, including DB, seldom loan multiple bankrupt customers any of THEIR money, but DB was overjoyed to help Russian mob, Oligarchs and Government launder over $10Billion that was looted from Russian companies and workers, and we already know at least some of donny's real estate deals were with a Russian Oligarch trying to hide money from his exwife, something donny would be very sympathetic towards.
YES the big test......and we'll see whose side they are on.
========================================= And I thought that they do not and should not take sides...FYI ...
The Supreme Court functions as a last resort tribunal. Its rulings cannot be appealed. It also decides on cases dealing with the interpretation of the constitution (for example, it can overturn a law passed by Congress if it deems it unconstitutional).
During historic telephonic arguments this week and next, the U.S. Supreme Court will take up major challenges involving access to President Donald Trump’s financial records, birth control health insurance, “faithless electors” in presidential elections and the constitutionality of the federal ban on robocalls, among others.
The justices will hear arguments in 10 cases over the two-week period. In response to the coronavirus pandemic, the court and the lawyers in those cases will appear remotely. The nation may tune into those arguments because the justices– in another break with tradition– are providing a live audio feed to certain media outlets, who, in turn, will make the audio more widely available.
All of the cases on May 4, 5, 6, 11, 12 and 13, are worth listening to if you have the time and the interest. The justices’ decisions may have significant implications for the powers of the presidency and the Congress, the manner in which the nation elects its president, female workers’ access to contraceptive care, our privacy in our cell phone usage and more. Some of the most prominent Supreme Court lawyers in the country will make the arguments. The justices also will post the transcripts and audio on their website each day after the arguments.
That is not the issue, but nice distraction. The issue is that there is a law against failing to comply with a subpoena issued by Congress and generated by a Congressional Investigation (presidents included).
Man learns from history that man learns nothing from history.
The issue is that there is a law against failing to comply with a subpoena issued by Congress and generated by a Congressional Investigation (presidents included).
We have three branches of government.
The Executive branch is not under the Legislative branch. Why do you think the congress has the power to subpoena anything it wants from the Executive branch?
They failed at a recent attempt to impeach this President, the House is clearly out of control... Separation of powers is sound government that prevents any one branch from running roughshod over the other branches.
The House needs to focus on its job and let the President do his job, it's good for the American people when the 3 branches do what they were designed to do, which does not include, trying to control the President that is elected by the Voters.
We need Term Limits for the House and Senate just like we do for President...
Because the Constitution gives them that right in the Impeachment process. You do want the Constitution to be followed, right? If your answer is yes then you should want tRump to comply
The three branches of government are equal and the Constitution gives them the right to subpoena anything it wants from the Executive branch if the courts agree and the Executive Branch has a RIGHT to contest the subpoena by bringing it to ever higher courts all the way to the Supreme Court at which hands the decision lies!
If the Supreme Court does not rule that tRump's taxes be released then the Majority of the Supreme Court has become just as corrupt as the Trump Administration.
I think SCOTUS will put off a ruling and I don't think they'll toss it back to the appeals courts. The idea, I think, is to let the election in November play itself out with no interference.
If they rule against Trump and he complies he'll lose the election.
If they rule against Trump and he still won't release his taxes, God knows what will happen.
If SCOTUS rules against Trump I would think the IRS would have to release his tax returns but with this administration I wouldn't bet the mortgage on it.
If the IRS does release his returns he'll say they were tampered with, Fox News will come up with at least three conspiracy theories supporting Trump and the Trumpettes will believe what they want to believe and the facts be dammed as usual.
I see no way they can rule for Trump. Congress has the right to see his returns. It's black letter law. But if they do find a way to rule for him SCOTUS will lose the respect of the majority of the American public.
So the only thing I think they can do is put off any ruling until after the election.
They will send it back to the lower courts to prevail. It has to do with campaign finances, prior to Trumps inauguration, so presidential immunity does not apply. A conviction will be pending when is orange face is defeated.
Better brace yourselves leftist communists! NO TAX RETURNS!!!! EVER! From the Greatest President in history!
Well, we are already aware of one return wherein Trump lost more money than any American in history. And coupled with Trump's numerous bankruptcies, including 3 Casinos where customers literally give you their money, Trump has also got to be "the Dumbest President in history"!
DUMP TRUMP AND DITCH MITCH TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!
