JUST IN: Trump files lawsuit to BLOCK House Democrat subpoena! [READ LAWSUIT HERE]

Democrats have made clear that they are going to attack Trump in any way they can in order to impeach him or defeat him in next year’s elections.

Their latest salvo in this fishing expedition is a subpoena by the House Oversight Committee Chairman, Elijah Cummings, into Trump’s business and financial information.

Trump is now suing to block this subpoena:




The lawsuit states in the very beginning:

“The Democrat Party, with its newfound control of the US House of Representatives, has declared all-out political war against President Donald J. Trump. Subpoenas are their weapon of choice.”

As pointed out above, it also argues that Cummings’ subpoena has no legitimate legislative purpose.

  1. If Trump wanted to really hammer the Democrats he could just order released all the payouts over sexual harassment by congress members.

    They want to play dirty? Play dirty.

    1. Excellent idea..should be done anyway…including Republicans…then the fund should be halted. Let them defend themselves on their own dime…just like the rest of us.

      1. Paul Ryan cancelled the Fund apparently but would not release the names…or so he said on his way out the door. Oh wait, he’s not really gone….they all head to Lobby Hill.

    2. @texas-chris I’d love to see the #Metoo movement go after that one, but oh wait, that only applies to people they hate, not the democrats. What was I thinking? . . . :silly: :facepalmg:

  2. Cummings is nothing more than a political hack. Trump’s private business activities and tax returns have nothing to do with Congresses legislative and oversight responsibilities. The courts should tell the “Honorable” Elijah Cummings to go pound sand in the crudest and most direct terms possible.

  3. Well, I will say this, that was the easiest legal document I’ve ever read…written in PLAIN ENGLISH. Everyone should read it. If you only have time for a short preview, read section II – 26-33 Where they outline the OVERREACH of Cummings. He has NO authority for such actions.

    Don’t you think if Donald Trump (the citizen) were doing nefarious things with his finances, that the IRS would have busted him by now? You don’t get to be a billionaire and run successful businesses with a pass from the IRS, if you do something illegal, they’re going to point it out.

    On the other hand, I will note, the President made his billions BEFORE any political aspirations. There are several in CONgress that have made their MILLIONS while IN office. Could it be…they’ve rigged the system to their advantage? Just asking…

    1. I totally agree! What I think is really rich about this partisan d-bag using the IRS as a weapon is that Cummings states it is the duty of the congress to make sure the IRS is doing a good job. I busted up laughing when I heard that sorry trumped up excuse.

    2. @joyfulgiver Just think, if the democrats are going to do this to a sitting President, maybe there should be a law that every single Congressperson and Senator has to go through the same scrutiny, have their entire lives and families investigated and show all taxes for their entire lives! How soon do we think it would stop? Just sayin’ 😎

    3. @joyfulgiver To your first point about Trump, he’s been under constant IRS audit right? So yeah, of course they would have busted him. And just knowing he’s always gonna be audited keeps him legal (although there are many ways to legally avoid paying taxes, just ask Jeff Bezos!).

      1. @nc As usual with the left, the strength of the accusations outweigh any actual evidence.

  4. Can I just say that I love how Trump had his lawyers call them the “Democrat Party” right up front (and you know that was a direct request from him). It has irritated me for YEARS now that at some point we had to start calling them the “Democratic Party” (which ps I never did).

    1. I agree. I never refer to them as the “Democratic” party. Remember the Republicans were blue at one time, and the Dems. were red. From what I can find, it was set in stone in the 2000 election that the Republicans became the party of red, and the Democrats the party of blue. I agree with the theory that no one wants to be seen as being red which symbolizes socialism/communism.

    2. @nc checks and balances
      So true…there is NOTHING democratic about the Democrat party :bam: I’ve been pointing that out for a long time.

      1. @joyfulgiver I was convinced from the start it was a deliberate PR move to elevate their brand.

  5. The President will be leaving Office in about 6 years,so in the meantime keep challenging Schiff and Nadler to see your team of Attorneys in Court

  6. Trump kinda handed that one to them when he signaled that he didn’t want the Mueller investigation to get anywhere near his finances. Start investigating someone and they say, “But don’t go THERE!!!’ and you kinda get the idea that “there” is where the bodies are hidden, so to speak.

    Or as someone else once said, “Follow the money.” They dig in his financial dealings, and the least they’ll find out is that he’s no where near as rich as he wants to claim. Yes, he has money, but how much does he owe and to whom? I don’t think the founders wanted Presidents with international business entanglements they did not divest themselves of before taking office.

    1. What nonsense. They were clamoring for this info before he even announced.

      Several Founders were businessmen. Many did business with, or had at one time been directly employed by Spain, France, or England.

      History didn’t begin with Trump.

    2. If you dont want partisan investigators going through your finances then obviously you are trying to hide crimes.

    3. If Mueller could have he would have but he obviously had no legitimate reason to even attempt to go there and neither does Congress, but I guess the will eventually end up in the Supreme Court.

    4. And how much of what you stated above is illegal? None.

      As stated in a post below, Trump made his money before any political aspirations vs those who made millionaires after being voted into politics. Where is the outrage about that? Don’t you think the IRS knows of Trumps finances and if there have ever been any irregularities?

  7. I worked in Corporate Finance for over 20 years and I can PROMISE you that even IF they were able to get Trumps Accountants to give them what they want they will still have NOTHING! LOL These big corporations hire auditors to come in and audit their books every year at tax season to help them CATCH any errors in the books. I’ve spent many a June doing General Ledger Account reconciliations trying to trace down errors they have found in order to correct them. You don’t volunteer information but you supply answers when they have questions and you BETTER answer them right or it can be your job!! But these people are “politicians” and have NO CLUE how these huge corporate structures work. They are showing their IGNORANCE in my humble opinion!!

    1. Another thing…………Trump’s corps have been under AUDIT since before the election and IF they were going to find anything……..don’t you think we would have heard about it by now? +

      Cummings requesting all his AUDIT RECORDS and summaries will be the nail in their own coffin BECAUSE………….wait for it………….the PURPOSE of an audit is to FIND MISTAKES SO THEY CAN BE CORRECTED BEFORE TAXES ARE COMPLETED! THESE PEOPLE ARE FOOLS! LOL!

  9. The DemocRats have no basis on which to demand Trump’s taxes; a person’s taxes are a matter between an individual or business, their CPA and the IRS only. Had he committed any crimes, the IRS would have submitted information to the DOJ to go after him. They have not. In fact, it is far more likely that, were we to see each DemocRat’s tax returns (those filed with the IRS, not the public set of crap DemocRats provide to the people), we would seriously question the legality, or criminality as it were, of their taxes over a businessman’s returns. But again, NOBODY has the right, and certainly NOT Congress, to demand anyone’s tax returns!

    Every American who has to file income tax returns, both personally and for their businesses should not only be outraged, but also infuriated, and possibly even frightened, that the DNC has spent over 100 years with Gestapo tactics like this. Notice that even Nancy Pelosi says she would not impeach….NOT because she would not love to do so, and NOT because it would further harm our nation, but purely because next year is an election year and she is up for re-election.

    If the DemocRats can use the IRS, intelligence agencies and other government entities to destroy the enemies they imagine, or create, they can do the same thing to YOU and every private citizen. They already used the IRS to destroy conservative entities’ opportunity to create non-profit organizations for purely political purposes, but We the People are STILL PAYING LOIS LERNER, WHO DID THIS!

    The DemocRats have already targeted and, in many cases, destroyed those whom they know do not vote “D,” and more recently, notable citizens who have donated to the GOP. Obama (and “wingman,” Eric Holder) did this. Bill Clinton did this. Lyndon B. Johnson did this. John F. Kennedy did this. Franklin D. Roosevelt did this. Woodrow Wilson did this….we have over 100 years of written historical proof that DemocRats cannot be trusted with intelligence information, personal or private information of any citizen or political opponent, or any sort of information that is important for national security.

    For the past TWO YEARS, since the American people elected Trump, the DemocRats have demonstrated that even the most top secret, classified information, is ripe for leaking for political expediency. Schiff, Nadler, NONE OF THEM are trustworthy with Trump’s personal information, government information or even YOUR information!

    NO DemocRat should EVER be placed into a position of power again, EVER, and since January 2019, they have proved that resoundingly!

    1. @charli Wow Charli, you said it all!!! Bravo!!! :clapping: :clapping: :clapping: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

  10. At this point I wish they’d just impeach already and get it over with. Let that fail, then the dude finishes his term, and we all get on with our miserable lives.

    1. My life isn’t miserable, but I’m sorry yours is. It appears that it is self inflicted.

      1. So you enjoy life in the dumpster fire then, watching as people take a rusty saw to their kneecaps day in and day out?

        1. I told you that I am not miserable. Actually I am quite happy with many, but not all, of Trumps accomplishments. You are the one that has the rusty saw taking it to your kneecaps because again you self inflict your misery. I promise, most don’t live on your dark side.

  11. I remember the days in 2016 when people didn’t want trump….this guy is the best republican fighting politician I have ever seen….I can’t believe there still anti-trumpers out there

    1. He is the best fighting Republican- but that isnt saying much since he is pretty much the only one willing to punch back.

      1. Yes, how much has Mitch McConnell and formerly Boehner, Ryan and now McCarthy been willing to fight back in any meaningful way?

  12. The President will be leaving Office in about 6 years,so in the meantime keep challenging Schiff and Nadler to see your team of Attorneys in Court

  13. Hello all! Finally I’m back. I somehow got locked out before Easter weekend and Scoop has been doing everything to help me (kudos to him for working over the holiday). Anyway, Happy Easter and now to this lawsuit. . .

    Trump has every right to do this. The left cannot help themselves. They want to find any way possible to destroy him and this stupid Senator Cummings is going beyond his authority trying to obtain Trump’s taxes. It’s all to attack him in any way possible.

    I pray that all of this crap that they are pulling will backfire and end in Republicans taking back the house in 2020 in a record number of seats. They are so disgusting that I think moderate democrats have to be looking at them thinking they’re off they’re rockers. Let’s hope! :praying:

      History didn’t begin with Trump.

      1. Agreed. For sure it didn’t begin with Trump. Even now we have a huge number of businessmen and women (200+) in Congress and we’ve had several who were president. Somehow that was overlooked when Trump began to run. Not putting down Trump’s business prowess but he certainly was not the first business person elected to an office. Sadly, all that aside, it just goes to show how many Americans are only familiar with career politicians whose only claim to fame (with no other prior form of work) is getting in office and staying there.

  17. I remember the days in 2016 when people didn’t want trump….this guy is the best republican fighting politician I have ever seen….I can’t believe there still anti-trumpers out there

  18. This is one of the things I like about Trump………..he fights back. First of all the Dems don’t have any right to his personal and business finances any more than he has a right to theirs or ours. The Dems need to stop this harassment and move on.

    Then again, if they don’t they’ll get crushed next year. So, let me think about this for a minute. Hmmmmmm…………….keep it up and get crushed or stop now and do it his next four years. Looking at it that way it’s an easy choice. Keep it up because they won’t be in charge anymore to harass.

  19. Cummings is nothing more than a political hack. Trump’s private business activities and tax returns have nothing to do with Congresses legislative and oversight responsibilities. The courts should tell the “Honorable” Elijah Cummings to go pound sand in the crudest and most direct terms possible.

    1. The ACLU changed their name a while ago to the American Civil Liberties Union for Liberals Only, or ACLULO for short.

  20. If Trump wanted to really hammer the Democrats he could just order released all the payouts over sexual harassment by congress members.
