    Judge rejects government’s motion to toss suit over missing Trump-Putin meeting notes

    Why is this administration so worried about the public gaining knowledge of what was discussed between Trump and Putin?

    Judge rejects government’s motion to toss suit over missing Trump-Putin meeting notes

    A federal judge on Wednesday rejected the Trump administration’s attempt to toss out a lawsuit over missing notes documenting President Donald Trump’s face-to-face meetings with President Vladimir Putin of Russia.

    American Oversight and Democracy Forward, a pair of left-leaning nonpartisan watchdog groups, sued Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the State Department, the National Archives and Records Administration, and the archivist of the United States in June over the missing notes. The groups charge that Pompeo violated the Federal Records Act by allowing Trump to reportedly confiscate meeting notes prepared by State Department employees and for failing to preserve them.

    In a ruling from the bench on Wednesday, Judge Trevor McFadden of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia denied the government’s motion to dismiss the case.
    Please note the following bolded words
    The order by McFadden, a Trump appointee, means that the lawsuit will be allowed to move forward and gives the government until Jan. 10 to say whether Pompeo complied with federal records law or show why he was not obligated to do so. Pompeo will then have until the middle of March to produce the State Department’s record of evidence.

    What a waste of the courts time. Just more harassment from our resist friends.
    The dems are still chasing that Russian ghost!

    it is the Left that is engaged in the systematic shredding of norms and the undermining of the rule of law.”

    Could be the same reason they are so concerned about Donnie's tax returns going public.


    Trump isn’t interested in stopping Russian 2020 election interference, only in covering it up.

    I agree with you. Trump has every right to meet and talk to his overlord in complete secrecy.

    The russians aren't ghosts as the numerous indictments PROVE beyond any doubt. And Mueller found plenty of evidence of collusion but it didn't rise to the level of criminal conspiracy. He sure as hell thought trump's actions met the criteria of the statutes about obstruction of justice tho.

    The Russians are real. they attacked the US election process and in the doing hurt Hillary and helped Dear Furhrer Trump.

    and he's being impeached because he insists on soliciting foreign interference in the American Election process. What a corrupt lying "fake" patriot.
