    Judge says Democrats can begin collecting Trump financial records in emoluments suit

    Well,, it looks like Team Trump lost another battle. The collection of data can procede.. although I am sure the republicans will try to appeal it

    Judge says Democrats can begin collecting Trump financial records in emoluments suit - CNNPolitics

    A federal judge told US House and Senate Democrats they can begin collecting financial evidence this week about Donald Trump's businesses for a lawsuit.
    Judge Emmet Sullivan, of the US District Court in Washington, denied an attempt by the Justice Department to stop the Democrats from collecting information from the Trump Organization and to appeal early court decisions in the lawsuit, which tests the constitutionality of Trump's business holdings while he serves as President.
    The case is one of several avenues Democrats have to get to Trump's financial records.
    Sullivan said the group of more than 200 members can begin collecting evidence June 28 through late September. Previously, the members of Congress said they plan to seek both documents and depositions from the Trump Organization.

    But the Justice Department had hoped to take the case to an appeals court before the evidence collection began.

    path of no return.

    they spied on Trump and now they will investigate to find a crime....Dems are just digging bigger hole to fall into....Trump is clean
    According to NBC, “Justice Department officials have said that Durham has found something significant, and that critics should be careful.”

    Well, I guess we'll have to see what happens as a result.

    It will also be interesting to see what happens to the next Dem who sits in the White House. The "return the favor" is going to be awesome.

    IIRC, there are two separate Emoluments Clause lawsuits against Trump.


    It is extremely difficult to get a GOP Senator to accept something when their salary depends upon not accepting it.

    No modern president except Trump has refused financial transparency.

    Why, no matter who is in the white house, I think it is good to have transparency into that person's finances. I don't care where who's in there.

    So what?
    Attorney General William Barr: “The fact of the matter is that, in waging a scorched earth, no-holds-barred war of 'Resistance' against this Administration,
    it is the Left that is engaged in the systematic shredding of norms and the undermining of the rule of law.”
