Dems Fight DOJ To Get A Better Shot At Trump

The Democrats are making themselves out to look like street fighters who are being held back in an effort to throw a punch. Only the person on the other side of that punch would be the president of the United States.

The House Dems are currently accusing the Department of Justice of protecting Trump and not allowing the necessary oversight for Congress. Although presidents have been investigated for centuries, Congress is trying to probe into Donald Trump too aggressively – and the Justice Department has had enough.

House Democrats have had enough, and they are getting house lawyers involved. The Justice Department recently invalidated a subpoena for Trump’s financial records. However, House lawyers are saying that it is absolutely a necessity and that he needs to submit to a congressional inquiry. The lawyers focused on precedents that began as early as George Washington.

According to some of the lawyers in the House of Representatives, the arguments being created by the Justice Department are “fabricated out of whole cloth.” They are identifying that the DOJ is representing what they wish the lot to be instead of the actual law. Lawyers say that the DOJ is trying to rewrite the authority that Congress has in order to investigate a sitting president.

This is a fight that has been going on for quite some time. The House Oversight and Reform Committee has been on the border of harassment since Trump first took office. The Dems are showing that they are bitter, and they are going to stop at nothing in order to get more information on him.

Trump has already sued the committee earlier in the year within his personal capacity as opposed to presidential capacity. This was following Elijah Cummings, the chairman of the committee when a subpoena was issued to Trump’s personal accounting firm. They wanted to seek several years of financial records.

Michael Cohen, a former personal attorney of the president had accused him of inflating and deflating values of assets in order to get approved for certain loans, including a bid to buy the Buffalo Bills. Other accusations were to reduce his overall tax burden.

The Dems seem to be after Trump in cold blood. However, Trump has been a billionaire for years. Based on the laws of the country, which were in place long before Trump took office, billionaires are on a completely different tax bracket than the average Americans. Just as Bernie Sanders – he has a lower tax burden than most Americans, too – yet Dems aren’t trying to jump down the DOJ’s throat to get a hold of his financial records.

A district judge upheld the committee subpoena back in May, yet the attorneys for Trump have appealed the decision. Now, the case has been dragged all the way to the US Court of Appeals.

Personal lawyers of Trump have said that the committee has overstepped their authority, requesting personal records from the president. The committee has yet to give a legitimate reason for wanting these records. At no point will these records change the fact that Trump was voted in as president. At no point will it show that he is incapable of doing his job. At no point will it show that he has done anything illegal.

The Dems simply want to focus on anything that they can in order to drag Trump’s name through the mud. However, it’s getting old. Now, they don’t even want to listen to reason when the Department of Justice is defending the president, too.

Trump’s lawyers have pointed out that constitutional red flags are being raised because there is no historical support that shows that a committee of Congress should have the ability to issue a legislative subpoena in order to gain records from the president.

Douglas Letter, the house General Counsel, is rejecting those claims. He doesn’t feel that he has any kind of “limited congressional power” and they want the information to conduct investigations and oversight. As to what investigations and to what oversight, the Dems have yet to identify.

Until they speak up as to why they want the information, they need to settle down. The DOJ is protecting Trump as they should because their claims are ridiculous. Further, the reason that they aren’t saying what investigations and oversight are because they don’t know yet – they want to find the dirt first.

The Dems are certainly getting feisty about the whole matter, not wanting to back down. However, they can identify that past presidents have been investigated, too – but there has always been a reason. Without a reason, they need to stop their childish antics.

  26. Do you hear the democrats hollering for justice where Comey or Clinton are concerned of course not! Until the good people of this country realize that the democrates are like the Moffia and until they vote them out will continue to see that any republican and a Republican President are herasted continually. They control the media and other sources and until we get term limits, why do you think they won’t vote for them, we will never see honest justice for all!

  27. THIS NONSENCE HAS TO BE (((“””STOPPED”””)) PRESIDENT TRUMP::: HAS DONE NOTHING “WRONG” ((((EXCEPT)))) DRAINING THEIR DRAINING THE “LEFT” i>e> DUMBO+RAT,S SWAMP… ,,,,,AND,,,,, TAKING BACK CONTROL ,,of,, OUR ONCE BROKEN (UNITED STATE,S ,,of,, OUR REAL AMERICAN.. HE HAS & CONTINUE,S TO REPAIR & TAKING BACK OUR;;; UNITED STATE,S ,,of,,((“OUR”)) AMERICA. WE WILL BE STRONGER & MORE UNITED THEN BEFORE J.F.KENNEDY & TEDDY, R. WERE OUR LAST GREAT PRESIDENT,S.

  28. How about going after the tax records of the top demorats, Piglossi, chucky, cummings, adam shitts, etc.

  29. When are the democrats going to stop harassing the president? Their behavior is intolerable. Never in the history of this country has such behavior been tolerated. The democrats are out of control. What’s next? Are they going to spy on the presidential bedroom? They want his tax records but are unwilling to show theirs. Tax records are not for public oversight. They are private. Donald Trump is a rich man. His tax returns have been audited many times and the IRS has found no instances of impropriety. This is just another witch hunt on the part of the democrats. It would be very nice if the house democrats would spend a little time on government business instead of expensive and time wasting witch hunts.

  30. JUST IMAGINE how much dirt we would find on a TON of Democrat politicians IF we could do this to them???? They’re hypocrites. Dems are: Do to Trump, but ‘don’t you dare’ do to us!!!!

  31. Were we not told when Trump first won that they can NOT go back into a President’s “personal” banking prior to his taking office. He’s been a businessman all his life. Get a life. Dems can’t tell us what they’re looking for because they don’t have anything in mind to look for. They want something to just JUMP RIGHT OUT IN THEIR FACES so they ‘then’ can fabricate something to spread a bunch of lies. Ain’t gonna happen. They’re just turning more and more Democrats against themselves. Works for us Trump supporters.

  32. The Democrats just can’t stand it that Trump has done nothing illegal and he has beat them at every turn! After he is re-elected in 2020 they will have 4 more years to make up stupid sh’t and he’ll beat them for another 4 years!

  33. The Democrats are showing that justice and equal protection under the law are concepts they do not understand.

  34. I PRAY for President Trump and the upcoming election. Since I, as a Christian, know that God is in control and He won’t let President Trump be railroaded by the liberals in Washington and the nation. After all, It is God who put President Trump in office and I don’t think the Socialists will win, although, the Bible does read that the world has to get much worse before Jesus comes to rapture His church. So, because things have to get worse, God MAY NOT LET President Trump be elected in 2020 as he wants to protect His children and I believe Trump in a Christian as I KNOW I am a Christian.
    I the person or people who are reading this wants to know he/she will go to Heaven and not Hell please send me an email at [email protected] if you have any questions.

  35. There’s no Democrat party it is now the Cry-Baby party.

  36. I have seen nothing but hate, violence, and lies by the DEMOCRATS for the past two and a half years. They do NOT DO THEIR JOBS WHICH IS TO LOOK AFTER THE INTEREST OF THE AMERICAN CITIZENS. The DEMOCRATS want open borders, allowing rapists, human traffickers, and drug traffickers into our Country which shows their unconcern for the American citizens. They want to decriminalize the crimes of the ILLEGALS. The DEMOCRATS want free education and free healthcare for all, including ILLEGALS. HOW STUPID!! They don’t tell the ignorant that those who work will be paying for ALL the free stuff. And the taxpayers will NOT BE GETTING ANYTHING FREE, THEY WILL BE PAYING FOR IT ALL. HOW STUPID CAN ANYONE BE?

  37. These democrats are as corrupt as the day is long! Lets not forget Diane Feinstein and the judge Kavenaugh scandal lets not forget the democrats Pakistani IT Scandal. Comeys perjury and illegal leaking FISA COURT LIARS Obamas ties to the corrupt FBI agents Where is the outrage?? Corrupt!

  39. Democrats need to just STOP this game. We Americans are tired of it and we Americans are pissed that the Democrats are spending our tax money and wasting important time on our President Trump that they don’t have the Americans back, but by gosh if we were illegals they would be kissing our a??

  40. In my opinion, AOC is nothing but an Ignorant, Loud Mouthed, Power Hungry little, twit.

  41. YEPPER:::: FOR SURE,,;;;;THE LEFT & THE DUMBO;RAT,S AVE LOST THEIR MIND,S WITH PUREOUT HATRED FOR ((“OUR REAL “”AMERICAN”” (((PRESIDENT ===DONALD J.

  43. House dems, keep digging until you are over your head. What a joke you are and everybody seems to know it but you !

  44. Tired of the Democrats who should be taking care of the financial situation, immigration, to name a couple of items but instead they are throwing tantrums like little toddlers. They should all be kicked out without salaries or benefits.

  45. Commie- Assed, Crooked- Conniving Dems.!

  46. I want to see the financial records of some of these very wealthy Democrat law makers. There income sources are far more suspicious than the President Trump’s will ever be.

  47. They won’t stop because as you so appropriately stated they are Childish ,which just shows how bad their TDS has rotted their thinking and reasoning process
