Opinion: Trump’s IRS Tax Returns still shelved, but how many more steps till they are released?

It is amazing that we are in October 2019, three years in the Presidency of Donald J. Trump and this is still a recurring thing. The thing is that there are investigations going on, in association with the Trump Organization in the state of New York. Which the Attorney General for the Southern District of New York (SDNY) have subpoenaed the Marzars USA Limited, the accounting firm for the Trump Organization.

Today, the United States District Judge Victor Marreno dismissed the claim of uniqueness and said the SDNY Attorney General could get 8 years of IRS Tax Returns concerning Trump and his business. However, his team has since then filed an new briefing order and therefore ended up with an “stay order”. Where the case will be filed and will get new scheduled dates, as the subpoena is still not valid. Even if it was one once in the system.

This is really what the President is doing. Mr. Transparency, Mr I am not Corrupt. Mr. I am a stable genius. Sorry, brother, the filing of the judge was reasonable in his judgement. That no President preside over the law and that a president can be investigated. Just like Bill Clinton could be investigated, and Richard Nixon. Both of them was subpoenaed and had to deliver documentation of their impeachment hearings and so-on.

Still, Trump thinks his above that. Richard Nixon even stated: “He concedes that he, like every other citizen, is under a legal duty to produce relevant, non-privileged evidence when called upon to do so”. So, when one crooked President like Nixon could do it. Than, the current one should have the ability to do it also. Especially, since this is the tax-returns. This is not some nuclear codes, some sensitive secret protocol only seen by a few mystique people at area 51 in 1960s before Project Manhattan. No, this is the documentation that assess the financial structure and the possible assets, which the state and federal authorities are taxing President Trump. This isn’t an document of science-fiction nor Scientology. Therefore, the man should be able to release it. That is if, if he has nothing to cover. But by the day, it seems more and more likely his covering a lot.

We have been waiting for the IRS Tax Returns of this man since before he was the Republican Party Nominee and before he was sworn-in President. The candidates in that race put it out and got the scrutiny. The looked through and found investments, estates and questionable enterprises, if there was any. But the President and the one in-charge now. Has kept this to his chest.

First off, his must be really poor. Not only morally, but out of pocket. His bankrupt. That is why his spending all the days of his Presidency or most part of it, on his estates boosting his business. If not using foreign assets and foreign diplomacy to further his business with trademarks and opportunities while being in office. This doesn’t seem to be a business booming, when it has to this way.

Secondly, when he needed again to postpone it and stop the ruling today. It just shows, that his stalling out of time and hoping for another verdict in another court. In that regard, the judge today put it brilliantly: “A synthesis of Burr, Nixon, Fitzgerald, and Clinton suggest that the Supreme Court would reject interpretation and application of presidential powers and functions that would “sustain an absolute, unqualified Presidential privilege of immunity from judicial process under all circumstances”.

We know that Trump and his team thinks they are above the law. Even there is no specification or stipulation, or even a code, which says so. Therefore, what has been done today. Is just another injunction in the road of releasing it, eventually.

This just shows again. That his hiding something. If not, he would have released before even running for President. Apparently, there is a lot of skeletons in the closet and he don’t want those bogeymen to hit the streets. Peace.

Opinion: Is a blow-job more of a constitutional crisis, than actual foreign interference?

I know that the one time the world was following an impeachment of an American President, live and in living-colour was back in the 1990s. Those was the days of Kool-Aid and a Presidential Affair turned into a Constitutional Crisis. This because the Republican Senators and Representatives took their shot at the Democratic Party President William J. Clinton.

They started impeachment inquiry in December 1998 over his affair in the oval office with a White House Intern Monica Lewinsky. By the end of February 2019, the whole case got acquitted, even after strong intentions and will from both Ken Starr and others to get rid Clinton. Still, it didn’t work.

Today in 2019 were seeing a move in this way today’s lucky bastard, Donald J. Trump, whose character and actions can be put into question. As his will to use Russian help, coordinated efforts and the investigation of over 2 years have shown. Still, the Congress is hell-bent on not acting upon it.

So, by this definition, in the 1990s a blow-job by an intern is more dire, than actually a foreign intervention and direct corrupt behaviour of present day government. Surely, in hindsight, people will say they would have supported the impeachment of Trump. But right now, the gravy-train, the slow train of reform isn’t there. It wasn’t as needed, as the strike and the fury of the acts of Clinton.

Sure, it was bad. He destroyed nearly his marriage to Hillary. He showed a lack of character and that he could misuse his power to get a happy ending. Well, the current day President has gotten a lot more and done a lot more in return. The President haven’t tried to stop a possible intervention in the up-coming elections in 2020. Neither has he tried to make the sanctions nor react to all the intelligence shown, that the Russians did interfere the previous election for the benefit of Trump.

Also, the obvious case of obstruction of justice, the ill-behaviour and the misuse of office. There is enough deeds to put this White House and this Administration under question. Clearly a long bucket list of foreign affairs and donations, sudden strikes of corporate deals done and to top-it off, the pay-to-play acts done by Trumps. Surely shows that the Tea-Pot Dome Scandal was only a fluke, but a daily occurrence in this government.

That is why the Congress, the House of Representatives should start an Impeachment Inquiry, where they will put the President under subpoena and by a grand jury to investigate the possible misdeeds of the President, as the Congress can do.

A CRS Report of 2005 states this: The focus of the impeachment inquiry is to determine whether the person involved has engaged in treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. If the House Committee on the Judiciary, by majority vote, determines that grounds for impeachment exist, a resolution impeaching the individual in question and setting forth specific allegations of misconduct, in one or more articles of impeachment, will be reported to the full House” (CRS Report for Congress – ‘An Overview of the Impeachment Process’ 20.04.2005).

This is clear on the memo. As the Congress and House Committee of the Judiciary and the House Representatives can start an inquiry and start an investigation into the President. To see if there is evidence of treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. Just like in the past when they checked the blow-jobs of Clinton. In today’s world, the House of Representatives has to see if they can find clear evidence and in the collected reports of Special Counsel Robert Mueller; if there is anything that is criminal. This can be done by them. As there been plenty on the Trump Team and Campaign staff, which have been implicated in the probe and even sentenced ever since. This is why, with the knowledge of this and the secrecy, not only the release of all the volumes of the report. Plus the trying to deflect it all and overshadow the evidence collected. There is surely more to shed a light on, an underworld the President doesn’t want the public to know. Just like his hidden tax-returns, which is more secret than the golden showers in Moscow.

Alas, there is a need to start the proceedings, that is if a blow-job in the oval office is more critical to the state, than foreign interference from the Kremlin. Peace.

Secretary of Treasury Mnuchin letter to Chairman Neal on denying the release of President Trump’s IRS Tax Returns (17.05.2019)

Opinion: What is Trump hiding in his IRS Tax Returns?

When your stonewalling into oblivion, there is only thing remaining, what is the person hiding? Especially if the guy is a public official, someone who represent the state for everyone else. Than, your supposed to be transparent without any connection to sources, which can stop you from serving the state. Alas, it is with this sense you can start to boggle, why the President of two years and campaign for longer time haven’t released his IRS Tax Returns.

This isn’t about vanity, that the Department of Justice and the Department of the Treasury, as neither the Attorney General William Barr or Secretary Steven Mnuchin are releasing it to the Congress. It is more secretive, than the nuclear codes or top secret intelligence that is shared with White House like nothing. This is how this administration operates, as there is no guidelines or need for protocol for the ones in close proximity of the President. However, to get the truth and the documentation the White House is supposed to abide the Committee’s of the Congress is nearly impossible.

Because of that, we have to wonder what the President is hiding. Is there some nuclear or criminal transactions his hiding? Is there questionable sources and fortunes hidden overseas, as the President is afraid of the public and the Capitol Hill knowing how earned his supposed fortune.

I am sure there are something so sinister, so dark and so damaging, that his paying his ex-wives to much in the settlements, that his foreign businesses aren’t profitable and the hotels only survives because he visits them everytime he can. Because, we only know the blown-up fantasy numbers and estimates he wants show the public. Not the real value of the properties and neither the profits. We don’t know if he even pay taxes. If he is capable of paying taxes and if the Trump Organization are able to pay their staff, maybe that is why he needs paperless workers at Mar-A-Lago in Miami to keep the golf-course a float.

He might be poorer than me, he might have a Kazakh Oil Csar that his owns so much money, that the Russians has to bail him out. We don’t know, because the President of the United States is afraid of being transparent and dropping the real deal. This shows his real intention of keeping people in the dark. He wants to Trump University the whole population. Give them all the shine and glory, but using unlicensed methods to trick the citizens. That is why he doesn’t deliver the IRS Tax Returns.

He doesn’t dare, doesn’t have the character or the posture to stand up and be brave. Because, he knows if the truth is released. His pretty fucked. His in such a hole, that even Ivanka smile cannot cover up the mess. Junior cannot even fake-grin or come up with lie that spins the news enough. This will not be locker-room talk or “on-both-sides”. No, this will be a burned bridge and no way to get back on land.

The President has such a secret, his willing to stonewall into oblivion. His secret is such a tragic mess, that even a Greek Tragedy cannot elope like this. His a fraud and fake, just like his tan. That is why the IRS Tax Returns are kept hidden and not released. He cannot unleash the dragon, than he will burn. Peace.
