I DARE you not to laugh out loud at this tweet




I AM COMPLETELY CALM shouts Trump, as he runs around the west wing with a soup pot on his head and falls down a flight of stairs with his pants around his ankles

3. This isn't going to end well for Trump or his youngfolk

Judge Edgardo Ramos of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York appeared to agree. “Lots of people do things, they hide assets, they create dummy corporations, they put their relatives in charge,” the judge said in court before he issued his ruling.

Judge Ramos said he agreed with Mr. Trump’s claim that turning over financial records to Congress could cause him and his family irreparable harm. But, he said, the merits of the congressional committees’ goals outweighed that harm.

4. This is big. Wonder how long the appeal will take, and then, if Trump turned down, can he stop

the document release to congress by claiming executive privilege, and also stop bank officials from testifying?
If so, will these cases be fought all the way to Supreme? And, thus, go on for years, or can they be expedited?

5. He can try to claim executive privilege but if he does, a judge is likely to bounce him out

There is no executive privilege claim that I can think of that would shield his financial records, especially those covering periods before he became president. Executive privilege protects communications between high government officials and their advisers in order to allow them to have frank and open discussions and to ensure their decisions are based on the best possible advice unencumbered by concerns that their deliberations will be exposed. I've tried, but can't come up with any valid basis for an executive privilege claim related to the financial records created when anyone was a private citizen.
