William Barr shut down Nancy Pelosi with this piece of paper

Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats thought they were about to get their hands on a smoking gun.

This would be the evidence that would lead directly to Donald Trump’s impeachment.

But William Barr just shut down Nancy Pelosi with this bombshell piece of paper.

Under the direction of Nancy Pelosi, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal employed a rarely used 1920s law to demand Donald Trump turn over six-years-worth of tax returns.

Democrats figured Trump was cornered and they would finally get to make Donald Trump’s tax returns public to expose financial wrongdoing.

But William Barr and the Department of Justice shut down this charade.

The Justice Department issued a legal memo outlining why Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin should reject the Democrats request on the basis that the Democrats had no legitimate reason for obtaining them other than to leak the returns and make them public.

“The Chairman did not explain why, if the Committee were sincerely interested in understanding how the IRS audits presidential tax returns, he needed to review President Trump’s tax returns for many years before his presidency. Nor did the Chairman request any information concerning the IRS’s actual policies or practices governing presidential audits or the audit histories for any President other than President Trump,” the DOJ’s memo explained.

“In view of these marked discrepancies in the public record, Treasury, quite reasonably, concluded that Chairman Neal had not articulated the real reason for his request. The Chairman’s request that Treasury turn over the President’s tax returns, for the apparent purpose of making them public, amounted to an unprecedented use of the Committee’s authority and raised a serious risk of abuse,” the memo added.

This threw a serious monkey wrench into Pelosi’s plans.

Pelosi hoped getting the tax returns would be enough to keep pro-impeachment Democrats at bay.

The Speaker reasoned that if she could show progress on investigations, it would be enough to show impeachment was not necessary because Democrats could use the resulting negative headlines to drive down Trump’s support and defeat him at the ballot box in 2020.

But that strategy is out the window now, and the longer the investigations are tied up in court the more enraged Democrats in the House will become.

And that could make impeachment inevitable.

    If Trump was really clever, he might AGREE to reveal his tax returns, on the condition that ALL PUBLICLY ELECTED OR APPOINTED PERSONS must release their tax returns as well.

    If this were somehow POLICY it would shut down the carping democraps! Maybe by executive action?

The whole time President Trump has been in office the Democrats have done EVERYTHING to block him from succeeding and made a mockery of our government and its Constitution .
    We can b**** and moan on this website and others all we want. But we MUST act to protect our country and its values!!
