The Supreme Court today agreed to hear three cases involving attempts by Democrats to subpoena Trump's financial records. Two of the case involve House committee subpoenas and one case involves a Manhattan District Attorney grand jury subpoena.
The Court also stayed enforcement of the subpoenas pending argument and decision.
The U.S. Supreme Court has blocked a subpoena issued by the House Committee on Oversight and Reform to Trump's accounting firm, pending a full appeal. So while the Stay is temporary, it likely will last several months until the appeal is decided.
This is part of a full-scale assault by Democrat controlled entities at the federal and state level to obtain (and then leak, of course) Trump's personal financial and tax information. There is a related petition pending regarding a grand jury subpoena to the same accounting firm from the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, which presents similar but distinct legal issues.
After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave her public blessing last week for House Democrats to launch a formal impeachment inquiry of President Trump, members of the GOP House leadership read her the riot act.
Not only did she announce her support of an inquiry before reading the transcript of the Trump/Zelensky call (which hadn't even been released at the time), but she also didn't name the specific alleged impeachable offense Trump committed.
For years, Republicans have made House Speaker Nancy Pelosi the face of the Democratic party in campaign advertising, whether her party was in the majority or not. But the 2019-2020 election cycle is seeing a different cast of Democrat characters emerge front and center in GOP ads:
In the aftermath of Israel's security-based decision Thursday to bar pro-BDS Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) entry into the country, their west coast Congressional colleague Ted Lieu (D-CA) was one of many Democrats who were outraged.
Democrats, who now control the House of Representatives, are using their committee powers to wage an all out war on Donald Trump regarding his personal finances, including businesses.
This use of government power to go after all things Trump is not new. Various state Attorney Generals, particularly Tish James in New York, have signaled a desire and intent to subject Trump's personal and business finances to extreme scrutiny looking for a crime.
