Trump lawsuit to stop tax return release tossed by the court

Frivolous lawsuit, I'd say



(CNN)A federal judge has decided that President Donald Trump can't sue New York state officials in a Washington, DC, court, at this time to stop the release of his tax returns.

The case is one of many where Trump or his administration have asked federal judges to intervene before House Democrats obtain Trump's financial records. In this case, Trump had sued New York state and the House to stop Congress from requesting his tax returns under a new New York state law. Congress hasn't yet requested the tax returns under the law.

nothing more than a Ponzi Scheme. Interesting how the Media has suddenly went black on this story.

3. *Sigh* It wasn't "tossed." It was dismissed without prejudice for procedural reasons only,

and it can and certainly will be re-filed in a New York court.

Everybody is getting this wrong. It doesn't mean anything as to the eventual outcome.

9. The judge didn't say that. He said that Trump didn't establish

that the DC court had personal jurisdiction over the other parties. When the case is refiled in NY, the NY court might (or might not) conclude that the substantive claim is frivolous, but this judge didn't do that.

7. The big red arrow...

This fiasco represents a big, red arrow, of course.

He dawdled and claimed the audit to his base as if the returns were no big deal. Now, at this stage, he obviously has some important and unsavory reason to not reveal that information. I think that that gets a bit lost in the wash as we watch the lawsuit progress.

I wonder how his base, (and those who are less "loyal" are going to spin this sore thumb? I haven't seen what kind of excuses they are making for their leader when he obviously has something rather important to HIDE. I would like to think that this does give some of them more pause for concern, although there is a huge bag of glaring concerns he has already generated.

17. Hell, the SC has lifetime appointments, and many of them as still very young; what the F*ck do they

care what Trump says? I hope they swat him down and back to Trump Tower, like the disgusting maggot he is.

8. They don't want to file

this case in NY because they know they will lose. Thatís why they tried this gambit.

15. They filed in DC because they wanted it heard by the same judge hearing the suit

challenging the Ways and Means demand that the IRS turn over Trump's federal returns. That judge, Trevor McFadden, also a Trump appointee, denied that request in July. The case was then randomly assigned to another judge, which just happened to be another Trump appointee.

12. Probably a few things

1) He's not nearly as rich as he has claimed. That will hurt his image as a great businessman and negotiator.
2) Clear evidence that points to money laundering/bank fraud or tax fraud if compared to other NY state/Bank Records
3) Debts held by certain foreign entities that are easily traceable back to Russian mobsters (I doubt he has "IOU Oleg Deriposka $25 million" listed on there - probably a shell company within Trump Org paying a shell company in Cyprus or elsewhere that is a front from Russian mobsters)

14. Hand picked Federal Judge rules against fat-ass in the WH on his tax returns and NY State.

16. The judge was a Trump appointee, but he wasn't picked by Trump to hear this case

The US District Court for the District of Columbia assigns judges randomly.
