Things are not going the way that the Imperial president wants it to go……he is stonewalling the Congress as often as possible……but a couple of his attempts did not go well for Trump……”the extremely stable genius”……
New York lawmakers gave final passage to legislation Wednesday that would allow President Donald Trump’s state tax returns to be released to congressional committees that have, so far, been barred from getting the president’s federal filings, the AP reports. The Democrat-led Senate and Assembly both approved the measures Wednesday, sending them to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat. A spokesman has said the governor supports the principle behind the legislation but will review the bill carefully before deciding whether to sign it. The legislation doesn’t target Trump by name, but it would allow the leaders of the US House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee, or the Joint Committee on Taxation to get access to any New York state tax returns filed by elected officials and top appointed officials.

A New York judge refused Wednesday to block congressional subpoenas seeking financial records from two banks that did business with President Donald Trump, making it clear it wasn’t a close call, per the AP. US District Judge Edgardo Ramos said in a ruling delivered from the bench that Trump and his company were “highly unlikely” to succeed in a lawsuit arguing that the subpoenas seeking records from Deutsche Bank and Capital One were unlawful and unconstitutional.
Five search warrant applications, from the early stages of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation in 2017, were made public in response to requests from media organizations. The documents shed further light on how former Trump attorney Michael Cohen capitalized financially on his closeness to Trump immediately after the 2016 election. See more at the AP.
To try and refocus the media Trump played a silly game……
On Wednesday morning, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi charged that President Donald Trump was “engaged in a cover-up.” In response, Trump claimed to have been so wounded that he called off a meeting about, and any further discussion of, the $2 trillion infrastructure bill the two sides had been considering.
“Instead of walking in happily into a meeting, I walk in to look at people that have just said that I was doing a cover-up,” Trump said at a press conference in the White House Rose Garden. “I don’t do cover-ups.” He added, further, that he wouldn’t deal with Democrats until they “get these phony investigations over with.”
“You can go down the investigation track, and you can go down the investment track,” he said, but you can’t do both at the same time.
This was a silly immature game played by a juvenile president. He spends his time playing the victim card and whining about the way he is treated…..
The Constitution made it impossible that the US would ever have a KING and Trump is trying to return the hard work the Founders did to secure our future as a republic from an “extremely stable geniuses”….
I have always hated political games and this president plays them with such passion it is damn near humorous……time for the games to end and the governing to begin….2 years of game and silliness is enough.
But TREASON? Trump keeps calling the people investigating him as traitors guilty of treason……does this “Extremely stable genius” actually know what constitutes treason?
All coming from this ‘president’ is just silly and pathetic.
