We are getting closer and closer to finally seeing these taxes.

A federal judge on Monday dismissed a lawsuit brought by President Donald Trump to block a subpoena for eight years of his tax returns, rejecting the President’s “extraordinary” claim that any occupant of the White House enjoys “absolute immunity from criminal process of any kind.”
Describing Trump’s argument as a “categorical and limitless assertion of Presidential immunity,” US District Court Judge Victor Marrero wrote in an opinion that it “would constitute an overreach of executive power.”
Trump brought the lawsuit after the Manhattan district attorney’s office subpoenaed his longtime accounting firm for his tax returns.
An attorney for Trump filed an emergency notice of appeal to the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit minutes after the district court judge filed his decision.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, led by Cyrus Vance Jr., is examining hush money paid to two women who, during the 2016 presidential campaign, alleged having affairs with Trump a decade ago. Trump has denied having affairs with both women.
The DA’s office sent Trump’s longtime accounting firm, Mazars USA, a grand jury subpoena seeking tax returns and related documents going back to 2011.
New York prosecutors are concerned that Trump may have filed false business records, which we, of course, know he did and violated New York state laws.
You know we have been saying for a while that it may be these smaller state cases which prove to be Trump’s undoing rather than the flashier Washington DC cases that get all of the attention.
And this more or less supports that theory.
Trump’s response to this news was….predictable.
The Radical Left Democrats have failed on all fronts, so now they are pushing local New York City and State Democrat prosecutors to go get President Trump. A thing like this has never happened to any President before. Not even close!

Well he is not wrong, this hasn’t happened to any other president.
But then again we have never had such a crooked POS in the White House before either.
