There is always a workaround.

The New York Senate on Wednesday passed legislation that would allow Congress to obtain President Trump’s tax returns from the state.

The bill passed by a vote of 39-21. The measure now heads to the state Assembly.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) has signaled he would sign the bill into law.

The state Senate also passed a bill, in a 39-22 vote, that would allow New York to prosecute people who received presidential pardons if certain conditions are met.

The tax-returns legislation authorizes the New York commissioner of taxation and finance to provide state returns requested by the chairmen of Congress’s tax committees, so long as the requests have a legitimate legislative purpose and as long as Congress is also requesting related federal tax returns from the U.S. Treasury Department.

The bill comes as House Democrats and the Trump administration are fighting over a request for Trump’s federal tax returns.

Backers of the New York bill see it as a way for Congress to view Trump’s tax information even as his administration has denied Democrats’ request for the federal tax returns.

“New York, as the home of the President’s state returns, has a special role and responsibility to step into the breach,” state Sen. Brad Hoylman (D) said on Twitter hours before the vote. “Washington has failed to act. We intend to lead.”

Trump has no jurisdiction to stop any of this, and though he may challenge it in court, the fact that it is legislated will make that meaningless.

I also love the fact that they are passing legislation to make it possible to prosecute people that Trump pardons.

Clearly, the New York Democrats are tired of Trump’s shit.

    The DC Fire Marshall just informed Trump that due to fire regulations Trump could no longer admit anyone into his asshole. Sad News was Sean Hannity had just left to get more tin foil and was stopped at the White House doors from re-entering.

    McConnell said, “I think the case is closed. I think the controversy has been concluded. I don’t think the House thinks that and I think they’re going to try to stir this up, but enough already. I mean, we found out from the Mueller report that the Russians were deeply involved in it. There were something like 18-20 indictments of Russian companies and Russian individuals who were trying to get into the campaign and mess with it. I think it’s over. I think it’s time to let it go and move on.”
    “He sounded like an unpopular Kentucky Senator who is terrified that the White House and his Senate majority are going to be gone by November 2020.”

    ““Ukraine, if you’re listening,” Giuliani was upfront with the New York Times that he’s heading to the fraught European nation in part to press the incoming president to investigate Joe Biden, the frontrunner in the Democratic field to take on Trump in 2020. “We’re not meddling in an election, we’re meddling in an investigation, which we have a right to do,”
    “There’s nothing illegal about it,” Giuliani told the Times of his trip to Ukraine. “Somebody could say it’s improper. And this isn’t foreign policy — I’m asking them to do an investigation that they’re doing already and that other people are telling them to stop. And I’m going to give them reasons why they shouldn’t stop it because that information will be very, very helpful to my client, and may turn out to be helpful to my government.””

    They won’t need his federal taxes if they get his state taxes.
