Washington DC and Maryland attorneys general to also subpoena IRS and other entities in emoluments lawsuit against president

Here’s some more details from the Associated Press on the emoluments lawsuit accusing Trump of profiting off the presidency, brought by the attorneys general of the District of Columbia and Maryland.

The flurry of subpoenas came a day after U.S. District Court Judge Peter J. Messitte approved a brisk schedule for discovery in the case alleging that foreign and domestic government spending at Trump’s Washington, D.C., hotel amounts to gifts to the president in violation of the Constitution’s emoluments clause.
==================================
I'm not going to post the entire document due to Fair Use. But this looks like Trump just got hit with the another major legal problem.

Looking forward to the inevitable twitter tantrum from the orange ***** grabber. And am sure his mates at Faux News are gonna be screeching about this too.

What odds they talk about Hillary's emails - AGAIN - just to distract their viewers from yet another clusterf**k.

Fox & most of the REDS here have HDS - Hillary Derangement Syndrome. Let it rest people.

Watch Fox. They will likely not even mention this until their producers see which way the political wind is blowing.

It will be interesting to see what SCOTUS has to say on this.

1: Trump is no longer under control of those businesses. He signed them over to his kids.

2: Paying to rent a room is technically part of a business, not a gift.

Interestingly enough no one but you and Joan, who hates Trump, has even mentioned Hillary. Perhaps you're the ones that need to "let it rest"?

I think this is the first time this year that I even typed her name. But threads here seem to inevitably drift into talking trash about her even though she was not in the OP.

I just hope they subpoena the information returns filed by the various LLCs and partnerships Trump owns.

Trump is “under control” of something else now. Interesting phrasing.......

Hillary is still campaigning for her dream job desperately trying to stay in the news, attempting to carries herself with the air of a president in exile.
What a joke she has become. They are now on a tour with a dozen or so '‘An Evening with the Clintons’ EVENTS & it's not going as planned.
The ticket sales leading up to the Clintons’ speaking engagement Tuesday evening were abysmal at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario &
only 16% of the seats were filled.

Tonight the Clintons will appear Tuesday December 4th at Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land. Tickets were originally listed at $29.50 to $399.00.
Tickets are now going for $6 and $7. Soon they'll beg college kids to show up with promises of pizza and beer. As the date approaches, they've be
very quietly talking to temp agencies to hire people to fill seats. They'll end up touring nursing homes, they would have a captive audience as people can't leave.

So this is probably last futile & feeble attempt to revive her LESS THAT NOTEWORTHY career is actually a good description of HDS, Another one of
'HILLARY'S DISASTROUS SCHEMES' that backfired!

They say that the higher a monkey climbs up a tree the more it shows its butt.

Trump the corrupt businessman could get away with a lot when his daddy's money protected him and not many people were watching him. Now with congress and the courts set to peel away the layers of corruption it seems he'll finally be held accountable for a lifetime of criminal enterprise. Or as the Guardian puts it, his scams are coming back to bite him.
