Skip to comments.Judge upholds House panel subpoena for Trump financial records [Obama Appointed]
Posted on 05/20/2019 2:48:40 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper
District Judge Amit Mehta on Monday ruled in favor of a subpoena issued by the House Oversight Committee for President Trump's financial records from the accounting firm Mazars.
In a 41-page-long opinion, Mehta found that "President Trump cannot block the subpoena to Mazars."
....Mehta also denied a request from Trump lawyer William Consovoy that he issue a stay on the ruling while they appeal the decision to a higher court, meaning that the House Democrats could quickly obtain the president's financial records if Mazars complies with the request before an appeals court potentially intervenes.

the Kangaroo Court refused a stay for appeal.
Such corruption on the bench.
Another fake judge who should be impeached and removed from office, imo.
Obama ‘Resistance’ Judge..
The judge has made his decision, now let him enforce it.
Ok, send the subpoena.
Then ENFORCE IT!
Of course, Trump will appeal it to the Supreme Court where it should be knocked down.
These bastards aren’t going to like the war they’ve started. They’ll be on the losing side.
Fine. Now let them enforce it.
What kinda name is that! You know we’re not in Kansas anymore.
Amit Mehta. Good American name. Not.
No no - Ive been reliably told by Justice Roberts that judges arent political in their decision making.
Exactly. Tell the judge to shove it.
The Greatest Fraud Ever really scraped the bottom of the barrel. This judge should be removed, disbarred and deported.
no matter. that judge can issue as many orders as it wishes
our Founders gave us a system of governance with separation of powers, not a parliamentary system where the executive/prime minister has to obey parliament/congress
(and a citizen’s tax records are confidential by law, passed by congress, anyway)
the D’s appear to be creating their much-threatened “constitutional crisis”....but it will avail them nothing on the law..............and I personally doubt it will avail them much POLITICALLY (their motive, of course) either...
1. most Americans don’t want Congress pawing through their tax records (horrible precedent), and
2. most Americans don’t give a damn about Trump’s old tax records (which were prepared by expert CPAs and largely audited by IRS anyway) and
3. most Americans see through the obviously-improper motives of the Democrat politicians in this matter (harassment, slander, politicization of the treasury, etc.)
4. I dare say (this is only my opinion of course) that even most D voters are sick and tired of all this krap from the D Congresscritters... and would much prefer everyone in Congress to just sit down and do their damned jobs (which they are screwing up royally, obviously). This assessment is based on just chatting with lots of people, mostly democrats, and it is not a scientific poll.
Totally agree...Anything that a$$ ever did should be scrapped....
What a surprise. I was expecting maybe an Irish American.
All this lawless targeting of a president because they don’t like him is not going to end well. This is the sort of thing that Franklin said our country was a republic “if we can keep it”.
And the judge strikes a blow for the judicial resistance! This is really getting old.
Ugly little roach, isn’t he?
