Once again, the liberal judiciary in this country has proven it has far more power than the president of the United States.
President Trump’s quest to keep his financial records out of the hands of Democrats was thwarted when Obama appointee U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta sided with Congress.
Needless to say, President Trump was less than thrilled with the court’s decision.
The President said it was a “crazy” decision and immediately stated his attorneys were already working on the appeal.
He further stated, “We think it’s totally the wrong decision by, obviously, an Obama-appointed judge.”
In his ruling, Judge Mehta stated the House Committee had “valid legislative purposes” for making such a request.
He further stated it was not his place “to question whether the Committee’s actions are truly motivated by political considerations.”
As upset as Trump was with the decision, Democrats were elated.
Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) called it a “resounding victory for the rule of law and our constitutional system of checks and balances.”
Trump’s attorneys, as mentioned above, are going to appeal.
One of his attorneys stated, “There is no possible legislation at the end of this tunnel.”
His ruling gives Congress the authority to investigate Trump’s action both before and after he became president to see if there was any illegal behavior by Donald Trump.
We all know this is ONLY happening so Dems can get a look at Trump’s taxes and try to create a negative narrative against him, everything else is window dressing.
