Federal Court Rules Banks Must Turn Over Trump's Financial Records

A federal appeals court has ruled Deutsche Bank and Capital One must comply with a congressional subpoena seeking years of Donald Trump's business records. The AP has more here.

The case is likely to go to the Supreme Court. Will packing the Court help Donald personally? What a shame, if it does.

    Great opinion by Judge Newman, age 86 (5.00 / 1) (#5)
    by Peter G on Tue Dec 03, 2019 at 08:16:44 PM EST
    of the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Newman was appointed as US Attorney in Connecticut by LBJ when he was only 32; Nixon made him a federal trial judge before he was 40. I had my first trial in front of him when I was a public defender; he taught me a lot about the rules of evidence which (unfortunately for my clients) I needed to learn. Carter put him on the court of appeals. Oh, for the days when exceptional talent was the key consideration for appointment of federal judges.

    this to you, but McConnell/Trump have already "packed" the court, which is why we're even having this discussion. the very first thing a D majority Congress needs to do is impeach both Gorsuch & Bart K, the former for being illegally elevated, the latter for lying to Congress during his hearing. that should resolve the packing issue.

    is honestly the least of his problems. Talk about embarrassing the country on the national stage to the point where Macron had to fact check him.

    George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley, the Republicans' witness during Wednesday's House Judiciary Council hearing said that this impeachment was "slipshod" and rushed because all of the documents and witnesses had had been examined. That's because Trump has kept it from the Public and the Investigating Committees. Crooked Presidents have always hidden behind their court challenges to delay the public from learning about their crimes.

    Nixon's criminal escapades laid out on the tapes' only came to light during the Watergate scandal of 1973 and 1974, when the system was mentioned during the televised testimony of White House aide Alexander Butterfield before the Senate Watergate Committee. Nixon fought like hell to keep them from being played to Americans and his refusal of a congressional subpoena to release the tapes constituted an article of impeachment against Nixon, and led to his subsequent resignation on August 9, 1974.

    Everyone knows already that the stuff subpoenaed from Trump will show he is a crook. All Americans know he is hiding it because it shows he is a crook.

    Congress should point out only crooks hide this stuff.

    Democrats need to incorporate more of George Lakoff's methods of framing
