William Barr made this big move to shut down Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment plans

Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats moved on to phase two of their plan to impeach President Trump.

After Robert Mueller’s testimony proved to be a bust, Democrats needed a new front in the impeachment war.

But William Barr made this big move to shut down Nancy Pelosi’s impeachment plans.

Democrats quickly dropped the Russia Collusion Hoax and put all their eggs in the basket of getting their hands on Donald Trump’s private financial records.

Liberals have long pushed conspiracy theories that Trump’s tax returns and other financial documents hold a goldmine of political and legal nuggets the Left can use to impeach the President.

Democrats have floated allegations of money laundering, fraud, and other financial crimes they believe are contained in the President’s records.

A District Court judge upheld the Democrats’ subpoena for the President’s financial records, but Attorney General William Barr and the Justice Department appealed to the Circuit Court to stop the Democrats from getting their hands on President Trump’s financial records.

Barr and the DOJ claimed the Democrats had no purpose for their request other than to harass the President.

Politico reports:

In a 30-page filing submitted to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, Justice Department lawyers argued that efforts by congressional Democrats to access Trump’s financial information — from accounting firm Mazars USA — were impermissible because they lacked a clear “legislative purpose.” It’s the first time the Trump administration has waded into the delicate dispute. Trump’s personal attorneys previously made similar arguments.

“A congressional demand for the President’s personal records raises the specter that members of the Legislative Branch are impermissibly attempting to interfere with or harass the Head of the Executive Branch, or at least that the subpoena will have that effect, especially given the possibility of a multitude of such subpoenas,” DOJ lawyers wrote in a brief signed by Assistant Attorney General Joseph Hunt, his deputy Hashim Mooppan and attorneys from DOJ’s civil division. “This risk requires a commensurately searching evaluation by the Judicial Branch.”

The input from the Justice Department is a significant escalation in the confrontation between the Trump administration and House Oversight Committee Democrats investigating whether Trump lied about his assets and net worth — an allegation based in part on testimony provided by his former personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen. Democrats say their investigation is aimed at rooting out potential conflicts of interest and corruption, but Trump’s personal attorneys — now with the backing of the Justice Department — have claimed it’s really an effort to indiscriminately cast about for potential illegal conduct by the president.

Democrats know there is no chance the President’s financial records contain any evidence of illegal activity.

But they hope they hold politically embarrassing gossip about charitable contributions or the effective tax rate the President has paid in the past.

That will allow Democrats to leak tidbits from Donald Trump’s tax returns throughout 2020 in hopes of damaging the President’s re-election prospects.

    Maxine Waters has already been investigated for fraud as has Diane Feinstein…… nothing happened. Does anyone really think a successful businessman like Trump would be stupid enough to cheat on his taxes? He probably had the best , most expensive accountants money could buy.

    The sooner Barr starts putting these people behind bars (Comey), the sooner they will begin to back off of Trump!
    Once Comey goes to jail, along with the others (Peter Strzok, Andrew McCabe…) will push hard at first, then back off. How do we the people, the ones paying for all of this, get to say “NO” we are not paying them, in fact they should be paying us back for the last 2 years. We can give it to the people they have cost fortunes to defend their inocent names (ie Roger Stone). These people have attempted treason of the American People.

    There are a lot more who should release their taxes first, and maybe some of those big mouths should pay what they owe (Al Sharpton). But what I really think should be released is Obama’s school records that he had frozen. Why? What is he hiding? So if he can keep his school records hid, then why do the dems think they need to see the President’s taxes? Enough of this BS. Congress needs to get to work for the country, and quit trying to figure out how to get rid of the President that was elected in. Or they should give back their pay. I hope everyone of them gets voted out next year.

    I am with you in all my 83 plus years have never seen such childish behavior from the democrat party. My father bless his soul was always a hard shelled one until he woke up to the behavior of the democrats for themselves and not the people they were elected to serve.

  8. Sarah J Williams says:

  9. Sarah J Williams says:

    The older I get the more I think most Democrats especial;y the DEMON RATS, are watermelons.
    Green on outside [environment] but red [commie mush] on the inside especially the 20+ that are running to unseat Trump!
    Lots of luck.

    No constitutional requirement to do so but Democrats want them anyway. Why did they not want Obama’s records? Strange thinking I guess. Seems Democrats don’t want to abide by the very things they want everyone else to do. Citizenship not important tax returns absolutely necessary.
