Can Trump block Dems’ subpoena for his financial records?


LIZ: CONGRESSWOMAN, THANK YOU FOR JOINING US TONIGHT. APPRECIATE IT.>>THANK YOU. LIZ: AS WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT, DEMOCRATS DO WHATEVER THEY CAN TO BLOCK PRESIDENT TRUMP’S GROWTH AGENDA. THAT’S WHAT REPUBLICANS ARE SAYING. WHAT HAS D.C. IN AN UPROAR IS THE WHITE HOUSE AND THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION FILING A LAWSUIT TODAY AGAINST DEMOCRAT ELIJAH CUMMINGS TO BLOCK HIS OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE’S SUBPOENA OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ACCOUNTANT IN ORDER TO GET AT THE PRESIDENT’S FINANCES. JOINING ME NOW IS A FORMER FEDERAL PROSECUTOR. KATIE, YOUR TAKE ON THIS, THE CONSTITUTIONAL GROUNDS THE WHITE HOUSE IS CITING HERE?>>I ABSOLUTELY AGREE WITH WHAT THE WHITE HOUSE HAS CITED. I THINK THAT THE SUPREME COURT CASE LAW REALLY SUPPORTS THE PRESIDENT IN TRYING TO QUASH THE SUBPOENA. THIS EFFORT BY THE DEMOCRATS IS ANOTHER ATTEMPT TO GET SOME BAD INFORMATION ON THE PRESIDENT BECAUSE THE MUELLER REPORT DIDN’T DELIVER. AND I THINK THAT THE WHITE HOUSE HAS VERY GOOD LEGAL GROUNDS ON WHICH TO OPPOSE THIS. LIZ: YOU KNOW, THE WHITE HOUSE, THE SAME ARGUMENT THEY ARE USING AGAINST THE ATTEMPT TO GET THE PRESIDENT’S TAX RETURNS AS WE’VE BEEN REPORTING LAST YEAR, IT’S BRINGING UP A SCOTUS DECISION THAT CONGRESS’S MANDATE IS ABOUT LEGISLATION. YES, CONGRESS DOES OVERSIGHT AS WELL, BUT THE WHITE HOUSE AND ITS FIGHT WITH ELIJAH CUMMINGS IS SAYING YOU HAVE A CONSTITUTIONAL GROUNDS TO LEGISLATE. YES, OVERSIGHT. OVERSIGHT THOUGH IS SUPPOSED TO END UP IN LEGISLATION. WHAT KIND OF LEGISLATION COULD THEY COME UP WITH BY GOING AFTER HIS FINANCES?>>WELL, THAT’S EXACTLY RIGHT. CONGRESS HAS TO PROVE THAT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT’S IN THE LEGITIMATE LEGISLATIVE SPHERE. AND OF COURSE PEOPLE CAN MAKE ANY SORT OF ARGUMENT TO TRY TO CONNECT IT TO THAT, BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY, IS IT GOING TO BE REASONABLE OR PERSUASIVE? I DON’T THINK THEY HAVE THAT HERE. I THINK THEY COULD SAY THEY ARE LOOKING AT POTENTIAL IMPEACHMENT AND THAT’S SOMETHING THAT’S WITHIN CONGRESS’S AUTHORITY. AND I THINK OBVIOUSLY THAT’S WHAT THIS REALLY PERTAINS TO AT THE END OF THE DAY, BUT THEY CANNOT GO ON FISHING EK PE — FISHING EXPEDITIONS TO TRY TO GET MORE INFORMATION BECAUSE ONE INVESTIGATION DIDN’T YIELD WHAT THEY WERE LOOKING FOR. LIZ: ROBERT MUELLER — 14 POTENTIAL CASES FOR PROSECUTORS. MISGIVINGS ABOUT THE STEELE FILE WERE OUT THERE TWO YEARS AGO AMONG THE FBI AND INVESTIGATORS. NEW YORK TIMES REPORTING THAT THE MUELLER REPORT REVEALS HOW FALSE AND FAKE THE STEELE FILE WAS. YOUR REACTION TO THAT?>>I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO LOOK AT THE LEGITIMACY OF ANY INVESTIGATION, AND I THINK THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENTS ACROSS THE BOARD NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE TO NOT GO PAST THEIR MANDATES AND TO NOT DIG FURTHER AND FURTHER WHEN THEY DON’T COME UP WITH WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR. AND I THINK THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION IS A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE OF THAT. WE SEE IT ALL THE TIME, ON THE FEDERAL SIDE OF LITIGATION, AND THIS IS JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF CONTINUING WAY PAST THE POINT OF REASONABLENESS WHEN YOU’RE NOT COMING UP WITH SOMETHING. LIZ: KATIE, A NEW REPORT INDICATES THAT FEDERAL ELECTION RECORDS IMPLICATES THE TEAM ASSOCIATED WITH PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA. TEAM OBAMA PAID NEARLY A MILLION DOLLARS TO A LAW FIRM THAT PAID FUSION GPS. THAT’S THE OUTFIT THAT’S BEHIND THAT ANTI-TRUMP STEELE DOSSIER. REMEMBER HILARY CLINTON’S CAMPAIGN PAID MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, SO DID THE DNC PAY MILLIONS OF DOLLARS THROUGH THAT LAW FIRM TO FUSION. NOW TEAM OBAMA IS KIND OF CLOSE TO THIS STORY AS WELL. YOUR TAKE?>>YEAH, I THINK THAT THE MORE THE DEMOCRATS DIG, IT COULD GET WORSE FOR PEOPLE THAT THEY DIDN’T INTEND TO TARGET IN THIS. I THINK THAT’S A REAL RISK THAT THEY ARE RUNNING HERE. SO THEY WANT TO CONTINUE DOWN THIS PATH, KEEP QUESTIONING EVERYTHING THAT CAME OUT OF THE MUELLER REPORT BECAUSE IT WASN’T WHAT THEY WERE LOOKING FOR, BUT IT COULD END UP REALLY BACKFIRING FOR THEM. LIZ: YEAH, AGAIN, TEAM OBAMA, THAT INFORMATION SHOWS THAT IT IS CLOSER TO WHAT HAPPENED THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT. WE KNOW ABOUT THE UNMASKING AND

  1. Can't these dumb American liberals see all our tax dollars being wasted on these witch hunt on trump my God trump derangement syndrome is running rampant in America wake up America vote trump 2020 make liberals cry again

  2. Do they just write in the subpoena
    “Please….did you see how all that crap just backfired on us? Give us something, anything. Don Lemon keeps blowing up my phone and Joy Behar is threatening my kids”

  3. I would've thought that, after more than six decades rambling around this big blue marble of ours, I could no longer be surprised by how stupid people are.
    But after watching these demonRATS for the last 3+ years, I', still amazed just how stupid they can be.
    Every day, the gene pool keeps getting shallower…….

  4. Well the one good thing about him investigating Trump and creating all this unnecessary chaos is the show their true character for who they really are and the more they incriminate themselves the easier it is for America to see the sick people in the world and they don't always live abroad in poor countries the right under our left wing

  5. Good for Trump! The dems in America are grasping at illegal straws .. since you idiots made them illegal 🤣🤣

  6. Low life people have threatened the U.S president and haved stocked presidents, only to be found as criminals.

  7. The best part is he's spending his own money to do this. Not his election funds, not his charity scam account. Not a go fund me because he's worth 20 billion. His own bank account.

  8. FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD
    THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY SON
    AND WHOSOEVER WOULD BELIEVE
    IN HIM WOULD NOT PERISH BUT
    HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE….JOHN 3:16
    ROMANS 3:23
    ACTS 4:12
    ROMANS :
    5:8
    6:23
    10:9,13

  9. How come you guys can’t stop easy idiots just to look up some just to take it down our president how stupid can they be

  10. The president is the Commander-in-chief and will not bow to Democrat demands! We all need to elect Trump in 2020 because he is fighting for the people and against the left who wants him impeached! 🇺🇸

  11. I read some info that Melania as a spouse could put the brakes on any release of tax records. Is this right?

  12. The people who believed his promise to us, that he'd release his TAX returns once we voted him in — got screwed !!
    Just like he told us MEXICO would pay for the WALL if we voted him in — and we'd get our HEALTHCARE fixed if we voted him in
    — and we'd get OUR taxes reduced if we voted him in. He lied to us. 4 out of 4 promises — all lies. We drank the kool-aid.

  13. Next they will want to know what type of underwear Trump wears. Boxers or briefs? It's very important for the congressional committees to know.

  14. How about the legislative branch exercising it’s right of checks and balances of the executive branch?

  15. Who is paying the piper. Why is Trump always supporting Saudi Arabia?. Veto Senate decision to stop support for the war in Yemen…that is suspicious…

  16. It's called Presidential Harassment. Oversight does NOT mean that the President is below the law. Trump is entitled for financial privacy like any other American. This is not going to fly and will be blocked in the courts. The Democ-rats' fishing expedition partisan witch hunt is going to FAIL and explode in their faces like never seen before with a Trump landslide victory in 2020.

  17. Not only do Democrats not govern when they are in power.But they also try their best to stop others from governing also.They are a pathetic blight on everything.

  18. if the RAT'S want transparency they must show their tax record's first , to the people's before asking POTUS to do so … I bet the RAT'S will refuse … it's treason

  19. Internal Revenue Service Disclosure Laws:

    “You are probably aware that the law protects your tax
    return information from disclosure to other parties by the Internal Revenue
    Service.  IRC Section 6103 generally
    prohibits the release of tax information by an IRS employee.”

    https://www.irs.gov/government-entities/federal-state-local-governments/disclosure-laws

  20. Ask for Medller financial records because he's being money laundering with his lawyer son. Thay being threatening people's life's. Do the investigation on them 2 bastards, and ask for their financial record. Show me your tax reform return, and ill show you mind.

  21. I'd rather see the financial records of establishment politicians who become millionaires off of a $150k salary than a billionaire.

  22. there is no precedent here this is the richest president we have ever had hold office he him self doesn't have have a standard tax 1040 or I9 forum all his money is tied up in a corporation in other words its takes 2 years to get a full finical statement it also cost millions of dollars to account for this in CPA fees the books alone dont tell the story there is deductions and shares and stock to consider the dems think its just a simple matter of personal wealth

  23. The Supreme court will handle this and give the Democrats another defeat and a stern warning to knock it the hell off.

  24. There is a big difference between oversight and harassment. Elijah thinks he can outsmart the President. He's wrong again.

  25. yoo much skin, katie, you aresuppose to be a professional and that includes dress code. are you going to a bar or are you just returning from a bar. trash

  26. If there is no bad information about Trump to be uncovered, then what is the problem? Hiding much?
    The Congress has the power to impeach. End of story. Trumps dodges will only delay the inevitable.

  27. I know how to shut the dumborats down just file charges against them for dereliction of their oath of office and kick out the leaders then watch all the others start to obey the oath

  28. I THOUGHT THEY WERE ELECTED TOO SERVE THE PEOPLE OF THE USA!!!!! THE DISGUSTING DEMORATS HAVE DONE ABSOLUTELY NOTHING SINCE IN POWER….ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

  29. Trump has a crucial mission to deliver while he's in office,which is to seal tremendous holes in the US system that make it weak and inactive in many cases affecting US image,might,and prior capabilities.

  30. Wisdom to understand the evil of the dnc takes time,,,, so they want children (those they aborted and didnt (with their inovated dead voter policy), to be able to vote early and often. Criminals and illegal aliens (also criminals) should be allowed to vote by dnc standards since they will all vote dnc,,, Every policy the left generates destroys America, from welfare, (21 percent absentine fathers 1965 to 75 percent today). Educational system destroyed under dnc control, everything the dnc does is intentional, those destroyed families and students taught to below standards are now dependent on government, those who are dependent on government are going to vote dnc, even if , the cause of them being dependent ,,, is the dnc,,,,,,,,,,

  31. I literally just got back to my comp and within 20 seconds of talking (without seeing) I knew it was Fox that somehow became the next video.
    I need to turn off all fox. such garbage.

  32. Sure lets look at all members of Congress first. I'd like to know how much Cummings brings in off his picture being used on the boxes of rice.

  33. Most of the people here do not know what they are talking about blinded by Fox News cesspool. Congress right to oversight of the executive branch is constitutional. An innocent man doesn't run away from the law, only criminals do. And I will say American educational system needs overhauling for the average Joe because it is churning out a lot Joes lacking analytical mind, who thinks logic is a rocket science.

  34. Trump will get what he is due eventually, His fat arse kicked out of the White House. Good riddance to the fat schmuck. I cannot wait.

  35. PENCIL NECK ADAM SCHIFF & CIA MUSLIM JOHN BRENNAN MUST EXECUTE THESE TRAITORS!! PERIOD!!
    THE REST OF FBI UNDER OBAMA ADMINISTRATION MUST INVESTIGATE THEM ALL!!
    Ilhan Omar she married to her brother is a Fraud she lying to American!! Need to remove this diaper's head out of American Government, she anti American, she is dangerous to America!! Ilhan Omar on 911 said: Some people do something, with her weird  finger point out, if you watch it closer the same as Jihah finger for terrorist!!  This diaper’s head need to send her back to where she come from!! But the old corrupted woman Nancy Pelosi is always standing behind her!!! Enough is enough!! Just Impeach Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Cortez, Rashida Tlaid!!! They are the traitors of United States!!  Send them all back to the country where the belong, not supposes to be here the nice country like United States of America!! Wake Up America!! Wake Up American before it ’s too late!! Freedom is not Free!

  36. Why would anyone oppose release of financial documents of any president is beyond my comprehension. What will you people do, after a president, a democrat, will not release his financial statements? Will you be happy with that? People in power must always be transparent with their finances. If you oppose that, then you don't understand basic principles of democratic system.

  37. no worries, conservatives, JA will expose the dnc, doj, fbi and the clinton foundation for all the wrongs they've done. trump 2020.

  38. We the American people did not vote the best president into office to want to know about his taxes his income we didn't give to s** about it then we don't give to s** about it NOW🤦 you people need to leave our president alone and stop all this nonsense this is b***** our country would be so much better off if you guys were stop this nonsense of Lies….
    I don't care about his taxes and about 60 to 70% of US Americans don't care about his taxes let him do his job…. that's what we care about…!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸

  39. He might slow it down but nothing can stop it. If they do, that means Executive power is unlimited and can’t be stopped no matter what.
    It is funny how people that are supposed to be smart are playing dumb. DOJ can’t indict a sitting President. What were people expecting out of Muller. He can only provide a summary and lay out the road map for Congress to impeach or not. No one knows the outcome of this mess, but it will be interesting to watch.

  40. trumps yearly salary for being president is chump change for the assets he already had , before he got elected

  41. The Dems are only wanting a fishing expedition and that would be illegal grounds. The Dems know this. It’s just their way of pushing their power which by the way they are losing. They didn’t want Trump to win in 2016 and they are looking for a way to keep him from running in 2020 because they know if he does, they are screwed.

  42. I love how FOX news is in their own little universe just refusing to read the Muller report and keep saying everythings good for Trump. Makes ot all the better when they will be forced to cover the impeachment.

  43. everyone in norway can see the tax file of anyone in norway. world does not end. a great many crimes are prevented. but usa has a soft spot for crime, done with an accountant.

  44. everyone in norway can see the tax file of anyone in norway. world does not end. a great many crimes are prevented. but usa has a soft spot for crime, done with an accountant.

  45. Can Fox news pass a 4th grade civics test? Doesn't look like you did your homework, or you wouldn't be asking stupid questions.

  46. Probably, but it isn't necessary. The House majority cannot force an entity to break the law and expose itself to lawsuits.

  47. Ohhh Ohhhh "Contempt of Congress" who is going to run the WH when all of staffer are in jail?….Cook Landscaper & house cleaner? LOL

  48. Can Democrats subpoena a ham sandwich, or are there rules against such a thing? Must SCOTUS teach Democrats 4th grade civics, or can we just elect 5th graders instead of Democrats and save the billions it costs to teach Democrats our laws?

  49. The Democrats don't even know what they are looking for,and if they were to find something they would not even know it.thats how stupid they are..

  50. The Criminal Corrupt Democrats are FONE dead in the water.Declas is coming and the Democrats know it but they can't do anything about it.GITMO WILL BE FULL OF CRIMINAL CORRUPT DEMOCRATS AND FAKE LYING NEWS MEDIA. TRUMP WILL DRAIN THE SWAMP PERMANENTLY.enjoy the show

  51. I want to see the roster of The Progressive International members and their expenses. Formerly know as Comintern, that's the most colluding organization that finances Communist movements.

  52. DRAWN THE LEFT ONCE FOR ALL – I would love to have only TRUMPERS Patriot party, Not Republican / DEM Rats because they are all corrupted.

  53. ABC news feed(thru Space Force News) Censored POTUS's CPAC Speech when He talked about the Gov. of VA allowing Infanticide! BUT, FOX News didn't!!! VERY INTERESTING!!!!! FREE

  54. President Trump would go after dems like Schiff and the rest do them its all harassment,there needs to be an end to all this .there is so much he needs to get done.But Dems dont want him to get anything done shame on them there only hitting our country

  55. THIS HARRASSMENT OF OUR POTUS MUST STOP !!
    THE DEMS HAVE GONE ROUGE ALL OVER THE US AND THEY MUST BE STOPPED.
    THEY ARE TRYING TO TAKE OVER THE US RIGHT IN FRONT OF US !!

  56. There may be a presumption that Congress acts for a legislative purpose but the presumption should be rebuttable. If Congress cannot pass a law directed at one person, then how is it a legitimate legislative purpose to only seek Trump’s accounting records? Even if Congress can legally exercise this authority, Democrats should be very careful about setting fire to a forest in which they too will burn. Their actions will empower a future republican congress to go wild with similar subpoenas targeting anybody with whom they disagree.

  57. Ok headlines….US CONGRESS FORCES PRESIDENTS FINANCIALS THROUGH BANKS RELEASE? PRIVACY ACT? IT SERVES WHAT PURPOSE? I WANT THE HOUSE SHUTDOWN AND OUR POLICE ARRESTING😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤

  58. To Trump Supporters: If you can't get the President's financial records, you're saying he's above the law and country. Traitors!
