Death and Trump’s Taxes, Cont.

Prznint Stupid’s personal attorneys William S. Consovoy and Stefan Passantino are working overtime (and billing hours!) to conceal all of his financial information!

Dewey Screwem & Howe (or whatever their law firm is called) are urging Treasury officials to violate the law requiring the department to furnish Trump’s tax returns to Congress, and threatening The Russian Usurper’s New York accounting firm Mazars U.S.A. with legal action if it complies with a congressional subpoena. The attorneys said they were formally putting Mazars ”on notice”—an implicit threat of legal action.

Hysterically, Rep. Gym Jordan (R-Locker Room) also sent a letter to members of the Oversight Committee yesterday, calling their request a “grave abuse” of power.

We should note that former Ohio State wrestlers have accused Jordan of knowing and not doing ANYTHING about it when they were sexually abused by the university’s athletic doctor while Jordan was an assistant coach, so it seems Jordan is sumpin’ of an expert on grave abuse (of power). But I digress.

But wait! There’s More! Ginzu knives! I mean, Politico!


“House Democrats on Monday issued a subpoena to the German lender Deutsche Bank seeking information on President Donald Trump’s finances, a major escalation of their investigation into his business dealings.

“In addition to the Deutsche Bank subpoena, House Democrats subpoenaed other banks — including JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Citigroup — seeking information on Russian money laundering. The issuance of the subpoenas was first reported by The New York Times. Democrats were expected to issue additional subpoenas targeting Trump’s finances soon, Democratic aides said.”


Consovoy probably got to do some more billing to Comrade Stupid Grift Inc, when he sent a letter to the Treasury Department demanding that it keep Prznint Stupid’s tax returns under lock and key behind a moat with sharks with laser beams circling it.

But not to worry, Treasury Secretary and human typo Steven Mnuchin has already indicated that he’s willing to do whatever it takes to keep Vulgarmort’s grifting private.

But can he? The Daily Beast tells us:


“Donald Trump and his top White House aide declare that the administration will not give the president’s tax returns to Congress, as required under a 1924 anti-corruption law. But both the Treasury secretary and the tax commissioner have been much more nuanced, saying that they will obey the law even as they delay actually doing so.

“I know why Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Charles Rettig, the IRS commissioner, are so cautious. They don’t want to be removed from office and sent to prison for five years just for doing Trump’s bidding…

“Under Section 6103 of our tax code, Treasury officials “shall” turn over the tax returns “upon written request” of the chair of either congressional tax committee or the federal employee who runs Congress’s Joint Committee on Taxation. No request has ever been refused, a host of former congressional tax aides tell me.”


Look, Mnuchin went nonlinear when Rep. Maxine Waters delayed him for 10 minutes; imagine what a 5-year sentence will do.

In related news, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal were honored  with Pulitzer Prizes for delving into President Trump’s finances and breaking open the hush-money scandals.

    OOh OOh I cannot wait to see his prison tats…

    But seriously folks, who actually believes that this country is operating under the rule of law anymore. (see DOJ: ‘The Emoluments clause doesn’t apply if the bribes “business spending by interested parties” goes to his business accounts and are not handed to him in the Oval…’ )

    Obvious typo will never be arrested, let alone go to prison. It’ll go to the Supreme Court and Barr will argue that the law says “any” tax return, and as we all know neither President Shitgibbon’s legal name or many aliases are “Any” so ipso facto, abra cadabra allee allee incomefree the law does not apply to the President, who is above the law anyway, right?

      All they have to do is claim that the requests are “frivolous,” and/or are being done “for obvious political retaliatory reasons,” and are not part of a “legitimate” investigation. THAT’S the sneaky little loophole that’s so irritating – the parties making the requests have to prove – likely in front of a Bitch McConnell-approved federal jurist – that their request IS valid and IS essential to aiding an investigation into serious wrongdoing, if they are challenged by the party being asked.
      And if it ends up going in front of the SCOTUS – after a lengthy drag-out in lower courts – we can already predict the outcome of THAT venture.

      Not so sure but that’s more a hope than anything else. IOW, where does the conservative SCOTUS majority rule that there are no longer rules? (And risk new seats in a Democratic administration?)

    Is it appropriate for a lawyer to advocate a violation of the law? Isn’t that something a bar association would want to investigate?

      Mnuchin (Sec. Typo) is not a lawyer. He’s a typical financier/corrupt money person. Just sayin’. And he won’t get 5 years in prison for not releasing Dump’s tax returns because Trump will instantaneously pardon him.

    I do believe that calls for disbarment, Bruce, but I have another idea. Start jailing the lawyers until Trump complies, I know, Trump wouldn’t care about the lawyers, at least not until he learned he was on the hook for all the billable hours they spend as his proxy in the pokey and that he has to pay each day’s charges by 5.PM or the bailiff starts confiscating property to sell off to make the payment.

    Shit like that happens to poor men all the time, lets start visiting it on make-believe rich men, too.

    I keep having enforcement — well, not fantasies exactly, call them thought experiments. What enforcement body does the House of Representatives have at its dilsposal? Federal Marshals? Weapon-bearing interns? the District of Columbia police? Since the DOJ is part of the executive branch, presumably the FBI could not be asked to physically remove the returns (in hard copy form) from the IRS.
    Can Citizens’ Arrests be perfomed upon federal officials? I bet nobody knows.

      Suesoise2 –

      The Capitol Police are the law enforcement part of the entire Congress; the US Marshalls are for the Judiciary; and the Secret Service is dedicated to the Executive Branch. The FBI is supposed to be investigative (and is under the DOJ, allegedly independent, even though it is in the Executive Branch), and NOT dedicated to any one branch, but I think that ship left a long time ago.

      I have no idea if any of these organizations has supremacy over any of the other. And this situation could be the Constitutional Crisis that determines some sort of hierarchy.

    in regard to the pulitzer i have to ask, has dumpy tweeted a name-calling rant concerning the award to two obviously ‘fake news’ organizations? can only assume it would be because he’s still upset his ‘fabulous/great/tremendous ‘art of the deal’ was passed over. it has however been appropriately pissed on, but that’s just my opinion.
