Maxine Waters would be proud. She has been calling for Trump’s impeachment for years and now the Dems headed by Rep Jerry Nadler are seeking just that. Nadler is the process of going over Trump’s life with a fine-toothed, in search of some sort of crime.
“Congressional Democrats are likely to request 10 years of President Trump’s tax returns in coming weeks, tailoring their inquiry in a way they hope will survive a court battle, according to lawmakers and others involved in the discussions.
The exact parameters of the request are still in flux, including whether to seek tax returns related to Trump’s many business enterprises in addition to his personal returns.
But Democrats led by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard E. Neal (D-Mass.), along with congressional lawyers, are in the advanced stages of preparing the request. They’re relying on a 1924 law that gives chairmen of House and Senate tax-writing committees broad powers to demand the tax returns of White House officials.
They said they are being deliberate so as not to make a mistake that jeopardizes the investigation.”
“The 1924 law does not appear to give (Treasury Secretary)Mnuchin much flexibility to deny a congressional request — it says he “shall” turn over the records.
But if he refused, Democrats would probably try to compel Mnuchin to comply by filing a lawsuit in federal court. That could drag the process out for months or more than a year, which could be one of Trump’s primary legal strategies, particularly if he thinks Republicans might retake control of the House of Representatives during the 2020 elections.”
This is ridiculous there would have to be a heck of a crime to unseat a president. There are only three things that can really unseat a president: Treason, Bribery, and Abuse of Power. Aside from these three, a president is untouchable. I guess the Dems are hoping to find evidence of Bribery? This is just a wild goose chase on the Dems part.
