The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to hear all three appeals from President Trump in three cases involving efforts to gain access to his financial records. It’s a separation of powers showdown. In doing so, the Court destroyed the House Obstruction of Congress impeachment charge.
The cases will be heard in March with a ruling by the summer.
The cases involve Trump against the House Democrats and the Manhattan district attorney. Their rulings will decide how much congressional oversight authority is permitted over the President, and how much power he has. The Supreme Court consolidated the three cases.
Two cases involve financial records subpoenas from Democratic lawmakers. In one, the House Oversight and Reform Committee subpoenaed Trump’s accounting firm for year’s of his personal and corporate financial records. In another, the House Financial Services and Intelligence committees subpoenaed Deutsche Bank and Capital One for a broad range of financial documents related to the President and his businesses, the Hill reported. It’s part of the House Democrats Levrentiy Beria fishing expedition.
The third case involves a subpoena from Manhattan prosecutors against his accounting firm Mazars USA for Trump’s personal and corporate financial records, including tax returns, from 2011 to 2018.
The Obstruction of Congress charge stemmed from the President’s refusal to comply without seeking relief from the courts. He sent all cases to the courts.
THERE GOES ONE CHARGE
The fact that the court is hearing these cases is tantamount to saying they have the jurisdiction to resolve the dispute between the two branches. That completely destroys the charge of Obstruction of Congress and suggests they’ve overstepped their authority.
The Court is saying the President has a viable claim to ask the court to intercede in the dispute.
That charge should be immediately pulled, leaving only the vague abuse of power charge.
Retired Harvard Professor Alan Dershowitz said exactly that on ‘Hannity’ last night.
Separation of powers is the or should be the concern here.
But, let’s take a look at the CA supreme court ruling that Trump can’t be on the ballot unless he provides tax returns – struck down.
The supreme court can and should rule on the constitutionality of these subpoenas – checks and balances.
What drove this to the supreme court is Congress’s attempt at overreaching their power – separation of powers. There is no choice for the supreme court but to validate Trump’s petition.
This is a slippery slope people, try to get beyond the petty bickering and see that what is going on here erodes YOUR rights. If they can do this to a sitting president, you’re fair game!
Since the Supreme Court could have refused to take up the three separate case rulings against Trump with no comment, thereby letting the lower court rulings stand, I have to assume that they are getting ready to overturn the lower court rulings. It takes at least four Supreme Court justices to vote to take up a case. You can bet that the liberals on the court didn’t want to take up the case and were hoping their fellow justices wouldn’t do so, that the lower court rulings might stand.
I am so thankful that someone in Washington can see through the BS that they are causing the trump a ministration is utterly ridiculous
Obstruction of Congress? Isn’t that the president’s job?
