Did Mueller Get Trump’s Tax Returns? Dems Must Ask

As America gets ready for Robert S. Mueller’s public testimony before Congress slated for Wednesday 7/24/2019, there are questions as to whether House Democrats will manage to squeeze any more information from him than what he has already provided in his 400 page report. Mueller has previously stated his objection to testifying before Congress pointing to his detailed 400 page report as his testimony. Concerns about him not being very forthcoming during his congressional testimony are therefore well placed.

There is one question however that House Democrats must ask Mueller when he testifies before them and that is whether or not he got Trump’s tax returns. If not, why didn’t he? Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) posed this question to Attorney General Barr during his confirmation hearing but Barr refused to answer telling Sen Klobuchar to ask Mueller instead.

Well, it turns out Democrats now have a perfect opportunity to get an answer to Sen Klobuchar’s very important question as to Trump’s tax returns and one hopes they will deliver on it.

Bottom line, Trump’s tax returns have been a major topic of interest for many Americans and they continue to be today. More importantly, reasonable people will agree that anybody looking into whether Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential elections would have looked into his tax returns to see whether he had any financial ties with Russia or people closely tied to the Russian government. Muerller therefore has an obligation to disclose to Americans whether or not he obtained Trump’s tax returns during his TrumpRussia investigation and if not, explain why his team concluded that such information was not relevant. Equally important, House Democrats must also find out if TeamMueller did indeed seek Trump’s tax returns but their efforts were rebuffed by the Trump administration. This goes to the whole “we fully cooperated” argument that we have become accustomed to from the Trump administration. Simply put, Democrats must put to rest all questions/concerns related to Trump’s tax returns when Mueller shows up before them.

Federal Judge Says Emoluments Clause Lawsuit Against Trump Can Proceed



While most of the mainstream media was rightly focussed on the dramatic events surrouding Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation, another bombshell news broke yesterday but got little or no attention.

Turns out a federal judge has allowed the Emoluments Clause lawsuit brought by Congressional Democrats against Trump to proceed.


This is super big news because it means among other things, that Congressional Dems may be able to get Trump’s tax returns through the discovery process.


Yours Truly predicted months ago that the Emoluments Clause lawsuit brought by Congressional Dems was by far the strongest because they had standing to sue.


Turns out Yours Truly was right on the money. Strangly, senate Dems never asked Kavanaugh during his confirmation hearings about the Emoluments Clause. Is there a way to find out now or is it too late?

Bottom line folks turns out 9/28/2018 was a great day for Dems in particular and Democracy-loving Americans in general. Our loud voices are beginning to get heard in spite of the GOP’s total stranglehold on political power(elevator women on Sen Flake). Let us hope the FBI investigation exposes Kavanaugh’s true character–a serial liar–and sinks his Supreme Court prospects. Let’s hope also that Congressional Dems finally get their hands on the elusive Trump’s tax returns using the Emoluments Clause lawsuit.

Democrats Poised To Pick Up Congressional Seats In North Carolina

A special panel of three federal district court judges has struck down North Carolina’s congressional map as unconstitutionally gerrymandered with less than three months to the 2018 midterms elections. This means  a new North Carolina congressional map will have to be hastily drawn before the midterms.




Republicans currently hold 10 of the 13 U.S. House seats from North Carolina thanks in large part to the gerrymandered congressional districts which favored the GOP. If a “fair” congressional map is adopted before the 2018 midterms, political pundits expect a net gain in seats for Dems and a loss for Republicans. Simply put, with a fair North Carolina congressional district map, the GOP will not win 10 of the 13 seats.

There is also a chance that this gerrymandering fight might end up in the Roberts Supreme Court which currently has only 8 justices after Kennedy’s retirement. Without a ninth justice to tip the scales, it is highly likely that the Roberts Supreme Court will either punt on this case or be deadlocked(4-4 decision) in which case the decision by the district court would stand–new congressional map for North Carolina.

Bottom line Dems must take advantage of this great opportunity to pick up as many congressional seats in North Carolina as possible. Put another way, Dems must flip NC blue!!
