Today two Attorney Generals have signaled that they plan to file subpoenas seeking records from the Trump Organizaton, Treasury Department, and dozens of other entities. The subpoenas are related to a lawsuit that accuses Trump of profiting from the presidency.


The subpoenas target 37 entities, including 13 Trump-linked entities and the federal agency that oversees the lease for Trump’s Washington hotel. Subpoenas were also being sent to the Department of Defense, General Services Administration, Department of Commerce, Department of Agriculture and the Treasury Department, which have spent taxpayer dollars at the hotel or have information on Trump’s finances relevant to the case.

Other Trump entities that officials plan to subpoena include those related to his Washington hotel and its management. Eighteen private entities including restaurants, venues and hotels that compete with the Trump hotel are also being subpoenaed in an effort to “illuminate the unfair nature of that competition,” said Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh.

“We are confident that at the end of discovery we will be able to prove our case — that President Trump is violating the Constitution’s emoluments clauses, America’s first anti-corruption laws,” Frosh said in a statement.



The subpoenas seek to prove that hotel revenues are going to the president through his affiliated entities, including The Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust. Most of the records are being requested back to Jan. 1, 2015.



The Treasury Department is being subpoenaed to determine not only whether its officials patronized Trump’s hotel, but also to learn more about Trump’s promised donations to Treasury of foreign government spending at his hotel and similar businesses. In February, The Trump Organization donated $151,470 — what it said was the total amount of spending in Trump’s first year in office.


This is the latest news in this lawsuit and I have posted about it in the past if you would like to get a little more background LINK

So absolutely shocking that Democrats would file frivolous lawsuits to try to smear Trump. No doubt they will get their pound of flesh and it will make them feel better about their miserable, hate-fueled lives.

So Democrats use the justice system as a political tool.

I had thought everyone already knew that....

And speaking of political tools, nice to see that you are still posting after the mid terms.

Meanwhile, just keep right on ignoring the fact that the Clintons pocketed tens of millions with their pay-to-play foundation, including millions from Russia to approve the selloff of 20 of US uranium, a true case of not only emolument but outright treason.



Projection alert...

Why is the AP being so slippery with the names of the AG's?

Karl Racine - AG of DC
Brian Frosh - AG of Maryland

Oh, maybe this is why. Seems those two have a history...

Nice catch!

I'm surprised at this point that someone hasn't filed a lawsuit claiming that his hair is offensive and age inappropriate.

And sexist and bigoted, of course.

Again, if anyone doesn't know that Democrats use the Justice system for political profit, they are just ignorant of American history.

So no real story here... just two scumbags getting on the CNNBSMBC rotation for a bit to pontificate and hopefully get some $$$.

Wow..... Yep, those grand juries just approve subpoena's all the time without evidence. All the Democrats have to do is just tell the grand jury that they don't like Trump and then the grand jury says "Ok, sounds good enough to us, here is your subpoena".

There has to be evidence to support these subpoenas. They don't just hand them out for no reason.

I swear you people are fixated on the Clintons. If they committed a crime then they should be locked up. If Trump committed a crime, he should be locked up. Simple as that.

The Mueller thing doesn't seem to be doing enough damage, time to deploy some contingency operations.

And of course, if all else fails there are the scorched earth final solutions.

If they can't destroy him, they'll try to destroy everything else and blame it all on him.

You know, I find this defense to be very disingenuous.

So, the only trustworthy prosecutors in this country are Republicans? Is that what you are saying?

Just because the prosecutors are Democrats that doesn't mean that the crime they are investigating didn't occur. They still have to prove to a grand jury that there is a need for the subpoena's. If they can't prove probable cause, they don't get a subpoena. Simple as that.

So, since they have a large number of subpoena's that means they were able to prove quite a bit.

Yep, you know all about Trump's finances. You are definitely the source we should listen to. No need for subpoenas notsure1 says everything is clean.

We’ve already went over this. Trump has lost over a billion in net worth since becoming president.

I think they should go after Trump for his part in the Uranium 1 deal. Anyone who sells Uranium to our enemies should be tried for treason and executed immediately by firing squad. '

Don't you all agree?
