Judge Issues Slight Pause on Subpoena Against Trump

A judge has issued a temporary pause on a subpoena aimed at obtaining President Trump’s tax return in New York.

According to The Hill:

A federal judge on Wednesday issued a one-day stay of New York prosecutors’ subpoena to President Trump’s accounting firm for the president’s personal and business tax returns.

At a hearing in federal court in New York, Judge Victor Marrero, an appointee of former President Bill Clinton, told lawyers for Trump and the Manhattan district attorney’s office to see if they could reach an agreement, according to multiple media reports.

Trump last week filed a lawsuit against his accounting firm, Mazars USA, as well as Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance (D). The lawsuit challenges a subpoena Vance’s office issued late last month, as part of a grand-jury investigation, to Mazars for Trump’s tax returns and other financial information.

In court documents filed ahead of Wednesday’s hearing, Trump’s personal lawyers argued that presidents can’t be criminally investigated and prosecuted while in office, so the subpoena violates the Constitution. But the district attorney’s office disagreed, saying there is no such immunity under the law.

The DOJ has also asked for a temporary restraining order so they could determine if they will join the case or not.

This whole scenario is ridiculous. President Trump’s tax returns while a private citizen are no body’s business but his and the IRS.

There is NOTHING in law or our constitution that mandates a president to release his tax returns. It IS illegal for the IRS to deliberately “leak” tax returns to the media which they have done to Trump, republican donors & conservative organizations with ZERO consequences.

Take this for what you will, but IMO? If the IRS had any issues with DJT’s Tax Returns, he would have been paying penalties a LONG TIME AGO!! So stick that in their faces. As far as how the President Runs his Businesses? Well excuse me…it’s none of their F’king Business, PERIOD!
There’s No laws mandating Tax returns must be turned in so everyone can judge someone by their income status, and what they claim and receive back is still NOT the business of anyone else.

If they do DJT”s , they better go back and also do Bill and Hilary’s. While we are at ita hard look at Nancy Polosie and Warren’ being put through that wringer might cause them to come out of the wash a shade cleaner also

Don’t forget the Obama Clan, they were most likely cheating on their taxes from way back, even before there went to the Whitehouse. That is how he has been hiding all that money Netflix has been paying him while in office.

The DemonRats are again weaponizing the IRS. Lets eliminate this forever more by passing the Fair Tax and eliminating the IRS from our lives (see FariTax.org).

The only people who have any business with Trump’s tax returns, or with any ability to prosecute anything revealed in them, already have those returns. Giving them to someone else would be a violation of Donald Trump’s rights!
