Well, it looks like the Democrats have finally have Donald Trump right where they want him.
A federal judge sided with a Democratic-controlled congressional committee on Monday, ordering President Trump’s accounting firm to comply with a subpoena and turn over his long-sought financial records.
“It is simply not fathomable that a Constitution that grants Congress the power to remove a President for reasons including criminal behavior would deny Congress the power to investigate him for unlawful conduct — past or present — even without
formally opening an impeachment inquiry,” U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta wrote in a lengthy opinion Monday afternoon.
Before boarding Marine One for a campaign rally in Pennsylvania Monday night, the president said the decision was “crazy” and “totally wrong.” His attorney, Jay Sekulow, said he “will be filing a timely notice of appeal” with the court.
Democrats say that if Trump tries to use the appeal process to delay compliance until after the election they have a special plan to fast-track the case.
