Democrats are going all-out to bring down President Trump.
The latest skirmish in the coup attempt against the President took place in a Manhattan District court.
And this judge just handed Donald Trump a defeat that left him red with rage.
On Monday, U.S. District Court judge Victor Marrero tossed out the President’s lawsuit to block the Manhattan District Attorney from subpoenaing eight years of Donald Trump’s tax returns.
Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance demanded eight years of the President’s tax returns in an effort to continue the criminal investigation into hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels during the 2018 election.
The New York Times reports:
A federal judge on Monday rejected a bold argument from President Trump that sitting presidents are immune from criminal investigations, allowing the Manhattan district attorney’s office to move forward with a subpoena seeking eight years of the president’s personal and corporate tax returns.
The ruling issued by Judge Victor Marrero of Manhattan federal court does not mean that the president’s tax returns will be turned over immediately. Mr. Trump’s lawyers quickly appealed the decision, and the appeals court agreed to temporarily block the order.
The judge’s decision came a little more than a month after the Manhattan district attorney subpoenaed Mr. Trump’s accounting firm, Mazars USA, for his personal and corporate returns dating to 2011. The demand touched off a legal showdown that raised new constitutional questions and drew in the Justice Department, which supported the president’s request to delay enforcement of the subpoena.
Mr. Vance’s office has been investigating whether any New York State laws were broken when Mr. Trump and his company reimbursed the president’s former lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, for payments he made in the run-up to the 2016 election to the pornographic film actress Stormy Daniels, who had said she had an affair with Mr. Trump.
Many Americans see this as a clear example of Presidential harassment and an abuse of power.
And some federal judges do as well, as the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan temporary blocked the order as the case proceeds.
But doubtless, partisan Democrat so-called “advocacy” groups will continue to flex their ideological muscle as Democrat Party legal foot soldiers to grasp at any possible straw for impeachment of a duly-elected president.
No previous President has ever been subjected to partisan prosecutors looking to jail them for the crime of winning an election.
