Trump’s lawyers to defy congressional requests for documents

Published

on

Lawyers for President Donald Trump look poised to defy Congressional requests for documents, thus setting up a major fight in the courts.

The Daily Beast reports that Trump’s legal team is “telling a crucial House committee seeking documents from dozens of Trumpworld associates that it has nothing to turn over,” thus defying a Monday deadline set by Congress to comply with document requests.

According to one source, the Trump legal team is using a somewhat strange legal rationale for refusing to cooperate as laid out by a letter it sent to Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY).

“The brief letter, sent by Trump attorney Jane Raskin, lays out that Jay Sekulow — the Trump lawyer who received the documents request early this month — and the current team never turned anything over to Mueller’s office or the Southern District,” the publication reports. “Hence, the source said, when Nadler asked Trump’s outside counsel for such documents, the attorneys’ position is that the House Democrat was asking for something that didn’t exist.”

It’s not clear at this point whether the committee plans to respond to this by issuing a formal subpoena, or whether any other Trump allies plan on defying Congress’s requests.

"As you point out, you are the first of two Muslim women to serve in the United States Congress. Why do you think President Trump specifically chose to paint the two of you as disloyal?" Blitzer asked.

Trump tries to change the subject by blaming Obama — then accidentally admits he’s putting kids in ‘cages’

Published

on

President Donald Trump was the target of a Democratic press conference with four Congresswomen of color who were calling him out for racist tweets telling them to go back to their countries.

The women attacked every policy that Trump seems to be losing on. Trump seemed to try and pivot to another issue entirely, blaming former President Barack Obama for building the cages that he's putting children in after he takes them from their parents.

The Obama Administration built the Cages, not the Trump Administration! DEMOCRATS MUST GIVE US THE VOTES TO CHANGE BAD IMMIGRATION LAWS.

Published

President Donald Trump took his racist comments even further Monday afternoon, saying that Democrats are now pro-terrorism.

"We will never be a Socialist or Communist Country. IF YOU ARE NOT HAPPY HERE, YOU CAN LEAVE!" Trump ranted. "It is your choice, and your choice alone. This is about love for America. Certain people HATE our Country. They are anti-Israel, pro Al-Qaeda, and comment on the 9/11 attack, “some people did something.” Radical Left Democrats want Open Borders, which means drugs, crime, human trafficking, and much more. Detention facilities are not Concentration Camps! America has never been stronger than it is now – rebuilt Military, highest Stock Market EVER, lowest unemployment and more people working than ever before. Keep America Great!"
