Appeal, all the way to SCOTUS, if necessary.
Obama appointed judge.
I want to see EVERY tax return for EVERY judge, congress member and federal employee.
There is absolutely no justification for it.
There wasn’t much doubt about how Bammy’s buddy Mehta would rule.
I though Traitor Roberts said there were no 0bama Judges.
Was he wrong, AGAIN?
Affirmative Action Hussein appointment.

So yes, Congress can make illegal or unfair or simply unconstitutional demands on a president, thereby precipitating a “constitutional crisis”.. congress can do this any time it wishes, but it can avail them nothing so long as a president says no. Political whoopie and some headlines, yes. Documents, no.
Our Founders set up three co-equal and SEPARATE branches of government, dependent on each other ONLY to the limited degrees they specified. Our Founders had the example of a Parliamentary system.... which they certainly could have adopted had they wished...and in which the Prime Minister has to obey the majority votes of the Parliament.
Our Founders specifically said NO to that system.
Obama appointee. Nuff said. This and The NY Times article about money laundering coincide with last line defense knowing the dung will be hitting the fan very soon. The times story was laughable about a failure to report questionable back and forth cash drops by trump businesses while never once mentioning anything ever about the crime family foundations.
I believe the judge ruled docs should be given to congress asap without time to repeal! Sneaky evil bastard!
This judge has no authority to do this.
There will be an injunction on this absurd ruling and it will go the the Supremes.
