Second Obama Judge Issues Activist Ruling Against President

The subpoenas are fishing expeditions designed to dig up something, anything, democrats can twist into their lying rhetoric about how bad the president is doing.

Bias liberal activism from the bench must be stopped.

For the second time this week, and activist Obama appointed judge has spit on the law so that democrats can conduct a fishing expedition into the financial records of President Donald Trump.

They want to comb through at least 10 years of his finances, along with his family, something that is unheard of. Democrats never cared about the Clinton Foundation’s many illegal activities and abuses! In fact, the Clinton Foundation got a deal with the FBI concerning what ‘evidence’ it would turn over!

How many people get to negotiate with the FBI about what sort of evidence they’ll release? Come on!

But of course, democrats only care about feeding their illogical and evil hate of President Trump, and finding judges who will ditch the law and back them up.

Breitbart News reported on the effrontery and the fact that both cases will soon be in Appeals court:

Another federal judge appointed by Barack Obama has ruled that House Democrats can subpoena President Donald Trump’s personal and business finance records, with Wednesday’s decision from New York following on the heels of a similar Monday ruling from a court in Washington, D.C.

House Democrats are pursuing members of the president’s family and private family-owned businesses, demanding banking records and financial statements.

As part of this partisan attack strategy, two committees in the U.S. House of Representatives controlled by Democrats – the Financial Services Committee and the Select Committee on Intelligence – issued subpoenas to Deutsche Bank and Capitol One Bank for at least ten years of records involving President Trump’s children, the children’s spouses, and various family businesses including the Trump Organization.

Those committees are led by two of the most partisan actors in Congress: Rep. Maxine Waters chairs the Finance Committee and Rep. Adam Schiff chairs the Intelligence Committee.

Both California Democrats have been outspoken in their fierce opposition to the president. Waters was among the first Democrats demanding the president’s impeachment.

Schiff claimed to have evidence that President Trump colluded with the Russians, though he has refused to produce such evidence and Special Counsel Robert Mueller found none.

The Trump family hired the powerhouse boutique law firm Consovoy McCarthy Park to fight the subpoenas in court. Lead counsel William Consovoy, a former law clerk to Justice Clarence Thomas and a rising conservative star in national legal circles, filed suit in federal district court in New York City, seeking a preliminary injunction to block the subpoenas.

On Wednesday, Judge Edgardo Ramos denied the request for an injunction. Ramos wrote in his 25-page opinion that these subpoenas are part of “the power of Congress to conduct investigations … inherent in the legislative process.”

This is the second such ruling this week. The House Oversight Committee subpoenaed accounting records on Donald Trump’s personal finances and business records held by an accounting company. On Monday, Judge Amit Mehta ruled that subpoena is likewise valid.

In both cases, House Democrats argued that they wanted these records merely to inform their decision on whether to strengthen federal ethics and disclosure laws. Consovoy’s team argued that the Democrats’ argument is a pretext covering their true motivation of seeking to embarrass and politically damage the president.

Both Ramos and Mehta were appointed by Barack Obama. Ramos’s decision will now go to the Second Circuit appeals court, and the president’s lawyers will appeal the other decision to the D.C. Circuit appeals court.

These cases’ fate is uncertain in both appellate courts, which are currently left of center in terms of judicial philosophy. One or more of these cases could end up before the Supreme Court.

A third lawsuit, seeking to keep House Democrats from obtaining President Trump’s personal tax returns from almost a decade ago when he was a private citizen, is also expected – likely in the near future.

As these frivolous attacks increase, most discerning people recognize that the more adamant and vicious liberals become simply indicates their growing terror that their reign of abusive power is coming to an end.
