Justice Department Asks Judges to Block Subpoena

 

October 11, 2019 at 5:45 pm EDT

 

“The Justice Department asked a federal appeals court on Friday to stop the release of President Trump’s tax returns to the Manhattan district attorney’s office, arguing that local prosecutors should have to meet a very high legal bar before investigating a sitting president,” the New York Times reports.

“The filing meant Mr. Trump’s own Justice Department was lending support to his attempt to block a subpoena issued to his accounting firm for eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns.”

This is a pretty blatant abuse of power.  Having said that, the argument that the bar should be very high to subpoena a sitting president is correct.  It should be a very high bar.  I can't imagine they haven't met that bar but if they haven't then it should be blocked.  

 

It's still pretty crazy.  Doesn't the White House Counsel usually makes these arguments?  It seems outside the scope of the head of the Justice Department to argue in defense of the President.

Abuse of power. Lmao. 

 

The left is a bunch of entitled crybabies. 

 

Whatever they want to see, collect, investigate, they should get. And when they don't they throw a tantrum.

Except they actually are entitled to Trump's taxes and the courts agree with them. The one being a pouty baby is Trump because the law demands he do something he doesn't want to do. He's being forced to eat his vegetables and doesn't like it one bit! But when Trump stamps his feet and throws a tantrum, you guys laud him for being "strong".

If Dear Leader is so snow white pure, why is he pulling out all the stops to hide?  Serious answer, please.  No bullshit, for once.

Never said he was. Just saying they don't really care about his taxes.

You are a fucking idiot.

 

Why should Trump be allowed to refuse to comply with subpoenas? If you or I try that we end up in prison but you think Trump is above the law.

If that's the case, him not currently behind bars proves otherwise. Idiot.
