Amid the ever increasing pressure of Democrats’ “formal impeachment inquiry”, President Trump has been dealt yet another blow – this time by a federal appellate court judge in Washington DC.
The Democrats are currently clinging to what they believe is a rock solid, simple case against the President. They believe that a whistleblower’s complaint regarding “promises” made to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, by US President Trump, are enough to have the Commander in Chief impeached, and maybe even removed from office.
Of course, Republicans have been spending the last few weeks repeatedly explaining to the nation that there was no explicit quid pro quo in the matter, and that this “whistleblower” was relaying second and third-hand information.
This is the sort of battle that could drag on for months, unfortunately.
A previous attempt by the left to demean President Trump is coming to a head, however, as the Commander in Chief is running out of ways to block the release of his personal tax information to Congress.
A federal appeals court in a split ruling Friday rejected President Donald Trump’s bid to block a subpoena for Trump’s financial records from the Democrat-controlled House Committee on Oversight and Reform.
The 2-1 ruling by the U.S Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld a federal district court judge’s decision denying Trump’s effort to stop the House committee from getting years’ worth of his financial records from the accounting firm Mazars USA.Friday’s dissent came from Judge Neomi Rao, who was appointed by Trump to the DC appeals court.
The judges David Tatel and Patricia Millett voted to deny Trump’s appeal to block the House’s request to Mazars for various financial statement related to the Trump Organization, the Trump Corporation, and the Trump Old Post Office in Washington.
The President could still take his case to the Supreme Court – a possibility that seems ever more likely given Trump’s staunch reluctance to comply with these pedantic requests from the increasingly radical left.
