Ruthie signed the order!
I believe they have been facing temporary setbacks in getting his financial docs for about 4 years now. How long exactly do you define "temporary" as?
I don't know but I'm enjoying how the gopers are now praising Ginsburg when months ago they had her on the way to the graveyard
Got to love how they jump fences around here
Who praised her, people just said she did it.
She is still on her death bed...
I just said she signed it. If it had no chance of SCOTUS stopping it being released, I doubt she would have
I am just wondering if she would be getting the same medical treatment under the value adjusted life requirements required under government healthcare... oh wait sure she would because she is not subject to the same rules as the rest of us.
She would be made comfortable as Obama would say.
No Like the Burn she has the golden ticket that the rest of us little people would not have.
I just keep thinking about the Capital scenes in Hunger games when it comes to these people in DC
wanted to do the right thing before hitting the door
Ruth Bader Ginsburg Might Get Trashed by the Left Over Her Decision About Trump's Bank Records
President Trump’s tax and financial records are other fronts in their impeachment crusade. It’s a scavenger hunt for these people. Trump did not release his tax returns in 2016, citing an IRS audit. For Democrats, they want five years worth of personal returns, including those from his businesses. The Trump administration has rightfully fought the Democrat’s over these documents because they know what’s up. It’s part of the Left’s offensive to find something impeachable. So far, Obama-appointed judges have ruled that the accounting firm that handled Trump’s tax returns hand over the documents. Another said that Deutsche Bank and Capital One have to turn over his banking records. Yet, the Supreme Court was reported to be a possible roadblock.
And now, of all people, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg signed off in blocking the release of those documents. The Supreme Court can be surprising. You know notorious RBG as her supporters call her are going to be angry and confused. Ruth might be canceled. We’ll see, but for now—the documents don’t need to be handed over to pro-impeachment, Trump-hating Democrats (via Politico):
MIGHT get trashed????
all the RBG bobbleheads these snowflakes bought are now being hit with pillows and peed on by therapy pets
No trashing by definition
Either Ruth is going out on a limb for trump or there really is a bombshell in those bank records. As I mentioned in another thread Trump's lawyers did the exact same hit job when students who attended Trump-U wanted their $$$$ back.
It took over eight years but the students won
You overlooked a third reason (as usual). #3- Its the Right thing to do, to delay it and study to see if it needs passed or stopped...
Where was 20 when Obama was asked to release his education records?
Emoluments: Trump's profits from private businesses to get hard look from federal appeals courts
WASHINGTON – An obscure provision of the Constitution that Donald Trump ridiculed as "this phony Emoluments Clause" will be debated in two federal appeals courts this week, representing yet another legal threat to the embattled president.
Even as impeachment dominates the agenda in Congress and President Trump's personal lawyers ask the Supreme Court to shield his tax returns and financial records from investigators, courts in the District of Columbia and Richmond, Va., will hear arguments that the president routinely receives gifts from foreign and U.S. government officials.
Those two challenges and a third working its way through federal courts in New York focus on the Trump Organization's financial stake in hotels and restaurants, which cater to customers both foreign and domestic with interests before the government Trump heads.
That poor bassturd, always getting picked on.
Once again Mag’s we can cite historical fact over feelings of MSNBC and the likes such as the feelings you have so let’s dive in
George Washington and the Emoluments Clauses
The Practices of our First President Suggest That President Trump is not violating the Foreign and Domestic Emoluments Clauses
Other Presidents, if you look, other presidents were wealthy. Not huge wealth. George Washington was actually considered a very rich man at the time. But they ran their businesses. George Washington, they say George Washington had two desks. A presidential desk and a business desk. I don't think you people with this phony Emoluments Clause.
His jab at the "phony Emoluments Clause" has garnered the most attention. But his reference to the practices of President Washington is far more significant.
Over the past two years, Professor Seth Barrett Tillman and I have written extensively about the practices of President Washington. We contend that the practices of our First President suggest that President Trump is not violating the Foreign and Domestic Emoluments Clause. The former provision does not apply to elected officials like the President, and the latter provision does not prohibit business transactions. We have also submitted many amicus briefs on this issue.
Here are some of our recent writings on this issue:
The Congressional Research Service Has Shifted Its Position on Whether the Foreign Emoluments Clause Applies to the President, The Volokh Conspiracy (Oct. 3, 2019).
The Office of Legal Counsel Has Not Shifted Its Position on Whether the Foreign Emoluments Clause Applies to the President. But the Civil Division Has, The Volokh Conspiracy (Oct. 4, 2019).

If you and MSNBC were around you would have tried to impeach Washington... hold on wasn’t that you on the right oar crossing the Deleware?
