Washington (CNN)A federal district judge has told the accounting firm Mazars it will need to turn over Donald Trump's accounting records from before he was President to the Democratic-controlled House Oversight Committee.

In a 41-page opinion, Judge Amit Mehta of the DC District Court rejected Trump's attempt to block the committee's subpoena, asserting that Congress is well within its authority to investigate the President.

CNN

The checks and balances of our Constitutional Republic on full display today. We will find out soon if Trump is compromised or not, not that it would matter to his faithful.

The Supreme Court is going to decide this one. The Supreme Court itself is turning into a partisan joke. But both parties have been a do nothing joke for quite some time now.

Nor would it matter to his haters

I'm confused, though- is this an ORDER or an OPINION?

Why is the stench of desperation so strong with you?

Do you really think this is your saving grace? Do you really think that his records are going to be the GOTCHA moment?

Your reasons for wanting this, like the crooked dems, is tainted, you honestly don't care and you never did, but because Orange Man Bad, you suddenly give a crap?


...and when this reveals nothing, what than? hmmm?

The judge didn't issue a stay and the company was preparing to send congress what they wanted before trump brought on the lawsuit.
The docs will be out the door by sundown on their way to congress.

Obama appointed Judge 😆

Not too obvious is it 😆

They'll get a stay from the Appeals Court since Judge Amit Mehta automatically denied a stay 🤖

A legal opinion issued by a judge is the explanation on why they ordered a certain decision.

Then my question is: Are these records going to be open to the public?

You know, in a way, this is Trumps way of parrying House overreach.

Clearly they are operated under false pretenses, already investigated through the some of millions of dollars and now this over reach is simply an attempt to help the Dems when 2020.

In response, Trumps cunning and experience gives him the ability of "Full Counter", therefore returning said beaucratic BS into the pipeline, thus continueing to delay them in their over reach.

A child could have decided this. Congress has a right to investigate the president. THAT’S THEIR JOB.

The people balking are hypocrites of immense proportions. Imagine Obama or Hillary trying to impede a legitimate congressional investigation how they would be howling like pigs—coverup.


Trump will lose this handily. Only a corrupt SCOTUS would allow Trump to avoid what's in the constitution.

Will you say the same when the SCOTUS grants an injunction and then overturns this lower court, citing Executive Privilege?

A subpoena for what?

What are they accusing Trump of?

Or is this kangaroo court going to make up something to accuse Trump of after they try to find something in his records?

Executive priviledge doesn't apply when the matter involved bank and income tax fraud before he became an executive.
