This judge just gave Donald Trump the big win in court that he was waiting for
Democrats in the House of Representatives want to impeach Donald Trump.
And there was one court case they were counting on to turn up the smoking gun that would finish President Trump for good.
But this judge just gave Donald Trump the big win in court that he was waiting for.
Democrats’ last gasp on the impeachment front is getting their hands on Donald Trump’s tax returns.
The left believes in baseless conspiracy theories about the President’s tax returns holding evidence of money laundering or other financial crimes.
New York State recently passed a law allowing Democrats on the House Ways and Means committee to access Donald Trump’s state returns.
The Trump legal team sued to block this request.
And Washington, D.C. federal judge Carl Nichols ruled in the President’s favor, blocking this request while New York State and the Democrats argue a motion that Nichols doesn’t have standing to head the case.
The Daily Caller reports:
A federal judge blocked New York state from turning over President Donald Trump’s tax returns to Congress Thursday.
The order from Judge Carl Nichols, a Trump appointee, came in agreement to a proposal from the state that would allow it to challenge Nichols’ jurisdiction over the issue, Politico reported Thursday.
The order will block any House Ways and Means Committee requests for the tax returns via the New York law until the jurisdictional dispute is resolved.
The Trump administration filed a lawsuit July 23 arguing New York violated the president’s constitutional rights when it passed a law earlier in July that would give the majority Democrat House Ways and Means Committee access to the president’s state tax returns, according to Reuters.
Democrats are targeting President Trump with an unheard of campaign of harassment.
If voters cared about President Trump’s tax returns they would have voted against him in 2016.
But they didn’t.
