BREAKING: Fed judge denies Trump's attempt to stop discovery process in "Emoluments Clause" Lawsuit

BREAKING: Federal judge denies @realDonaldTrump's attempt to stop discovery process in "Emoluments Clause" lawsuit by DC/MD A.G.'s. Will allow AGs to get documents showing foreign-government customers at Trump Hotel D.C.
Story coming soon...

One interesting part: @realDonaldTrump had argued that a lawsuit would distract him from his duties as POTUS. But judge notes that, while in office, Trump has found time to threatened lawsuits against Bannon, Stormy, Michael Wolff..








**********

Discovery schedule due in 20 days!

13. The Rump's argument is that it would take away from his presidentin' time

Judge says, "Sorry, Rump, you may have to cut your Faux Nooze watching from nine hours to somewhat less."

17. "argued that a lawsuit would distract him from his duties as POTUS"


He hasn't worked a day since he's been in office. It's all Kabuki theater. Unfortunately, the ramifications are not.

21. Major positive development

which has implications for Trump himself and for future grifters like him.

Kudos to the folks who initiated the lawsuit!

22. Distract from his duties as POTUS?

 

He has time for friggin golf trips every weekend and multiple hours of TV watching, he has virtually no duties. He doesn't ever do anything other than piss and moan over idiotic twitter.

33. Sounds like those judges have had enough of Trump. Seems the see him as the 'lazy ass do nothing'

president that he is. I guess that's what happens when you're 'overexposed' and the world can see that the emperor has no clothes and no brain. My guess is that those judges expect more from their president then his riding around the country in AF1 in perpetual campaigning mode at the expense of everyone else, while reeking havoc with our allies; and he and his family of grifters steadily taking money from the Saudis and the Chinese. My guess is that these judges are as embarrassed to have him in the White House as the rest of us.
