@IMPARTIAL"Any one that calls themselves a patriot, would want
us to see if a US President is beholden to our enemy."Like
Hillary, had she become president? Or Obama telling Russian agents that he would
have more flexibility his next term? Anyone who calls themselves
patriots would never follow the democratic party.
As a loyal reader of this newspaper I am astounded it has not editorialized on
Trump's blatant unprecedented stonewalling.
@thid"Will Democrats ever accept that they lost the 2016 election?
"Will Trump acolytes ever understand that opposition to Trump
isn't isolated to Democrats?Trump is reviled by Libertarians,
Conservatives, honest Republicans and Independents because he has stained the
office of the President in countless ways.
Before hiring a CEO of a company, you'd want to know how they manage
accounts and money. You'd want to know their vision and priorities.
You'd want to do a background check to ensure they are not a criminal.I believe every presidential candidate (coming out of the primaries)
should be required to reveal their tax returns.Trump should turn
over his tax returns. To do otherwise sets a dangerous precedent...
Thid - this has nothing to do with whether Democrats "accept" the 2016
election. Of course they do - Trump supporters are the only ones claiming they
don't. Also, it doesn't really matter how good the economy
is. I'm glad it is doing great, but we don't let criminals go free
because they keep their lawn mowed, or they pay their power bill, or work with
children. We are a nation of laws. Any one of us would have to
comply with a subpoena or go to jail. Period. Trump is not above the law. He is the only Presidential candidate in modern times who refused to
release his taxes. He is the only President in modern times that refused to
divest his assets and refused to place them in a blind trust. He asked Russia to
do an illegal act for him on national TV and bragged about how much he loves
Wiki-leaks. He also said this: "I have Putin here, and he says he
didn't do it." He took the word of Putin over his own American
intelligence agencies. He deserves every bit of scrutiny he gets.
I'm sure if he is really an honest and forthright person of
integrity he will easily be able to defend his actions. He would welcome the
chance to do so. What is he afraid of?
Impartial: Actually, the announcement about the 3.2% first quarter GDP growth
rate was all over the news, not just Fox, and is fact! My predictions about the
2020 election is my prediction given the tremendous Trump economy! Millions of
Americans are profoundly grateful for their new prosperity and will vote
accordingly! Glorious isn't it? What are Democrats to do, except try again
and again to overturn the election? Your Mueller probe failed so you must try
something, anything else but those distortions will fail also!
@ThisBarker;"The Democrats are left with only one option: distort the
facts!"Ironic, coming from a guy that gets his "facts"
from FOX News and AM radio.
TRUTH terrifies trump.And that is exactly why we all need to find
Obama was open to all investigations.Mitch McConnell and the
Republican party did everything they could to destroy Obama and as always Obama
came up clean. Democrats simply ask the same thing. Trump has a very
questionable financial history and deep connections to Russians. Of course
America needs to open up his finances and find out where he's been getting
The 2020 election isn’t going to be close. The first-quarter gross
domestic product growth rate of 3.2 percent sets up the first reality that will
be noted in November 2020 because it telegraphs where the economy will be then:
not in recession. The economy over which President Trump is presiding is strong
and getting stronger. Innovation is accelerating, not declining. His
administration’s deregulatory push is accelerating. More and more
rule-of-law judges, disinclined to accept bureaucrats’ excuses for
overregulation, are being confirmed to the bench. Readiness levels in the U.S.
military have been renewed. Meanwhile, the Dems are facing a choice of Sens.
Bernie Sanders or Kamala D. Harris, or former vice president Joe Biden. The
nomination going to someone such as South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg is
possible, I suppose, but what happens when the dog chasing the car catches it?
Then President Trump deflects incoming criticism with ease because, as Mark
Twain once said: "Get your facts straight first, then you can distort them
as much as you please"! The Democrats are left with only one option: distort
Thid Barker,"There must be evidence to issue and honor a subpoena!
Otherwise, its illegal and can and should be ignored!"____________________I don't how you got that misguided understand
of the process. Neither a prosecutor nor a Congressional investigating committee
require evidence to obtain a subpoena. The whole purpose of a subpoena is to
search for what evidence there may be. Trump has the legal to fight a subpoena
but a court decides if there is reasonable grounds.
False Russian collusion didn't work, fake dossier didn't work, rigged
DNC didn't work, now this has just become remove Trump by any means. Does the Democratic party have any morals left? Just looking at their platform
and agenda would tell you "No".
Everyone knows he lies on his taxes. However, it may not be criminal if he pays
what he owes.
Craig Clark: There must be evidence to issue and honor a subpoena! Otherwise,
its illegal and can and should be ignored! Our constitution guarantees it and
perhaps the SCOTUS will be called upon to verify, re-establish and confirm the
rule of law, not Democrat mob rule! President Trump is refusing this because its
the right thing to do for all Americans! Presumption of innocence, not guilt by
accusation, no evidence required is the Democrat way, not the American rule of
Thid Barker,"Will Democrats ever accept that they lost the 2016
election?"____________________This, that avoids the larger
question that should be self-evident. It's not will Democrats accept that
they lost the election but rather, how long can Republicans keep turning their
heads and looking away from the obvious.
Sure looks like more obstruction of justice. We can either have the rule of law,
or Trump. Can't have both.Congress has legit oversight
responsibility/power. Mueller found instances of obstruction, but did not indict
because of DOJ policy. He left it to congress to hold Trump accountable. He also
indicated that Trump can be investigated and/or charged after leaving office.Trump is hoping to run out clock with these lawsuits. This is his
longtime habit. Looks as if He cannot withstand the truth being known. Not on
taxes, businesses or presidency.There was no exoneration in the
report. Congress must be allowed to do it's constitutionally mandated job.
Thid, I'm not sure that you understand the constitutional separation of
powers, or congressional oversight responsibility. Trump is not a king. Also,
presidents cannot have no claim of privacy when it comes to obstruction of
This demonstrates why the committee issued subpoenas. A President who goes to
the extent of fighting a subpoena would never honor a request.
Will Democrats ever accept that they lost the 2016 election? This is just
another attempt to overturn the vote of the people and will backfire on them in
2020! Go for it Democrats and the consequences will shock even you! This is just
more illegal invasion of privacy with no evidence! Any honorable judge will
throw this out! In America we don't allow people, even Presidents, to be
investigated without evidence. The presumption of innocence is a safety net and
protects Democrats too!
The Russians wanted Trump to become President for a reason. Today, Trump, the
guy that brags about any small accomplishment, sued big banks to keep his
finances hidden. Why would such a big successful billionaire, that loves to
brag, want to keep us from knowing his real financial status? Insiders have
long told us that Trump is beholden to Russians for hundreds of millions. Any
one that calls themselves a patriot, would want us to see if a US President is
beholden to our enemy.
If DJT has nothing to hide; why is he litigating?
