President Donald Trump is going to court to try to block a Democratically-controlled congressional committee from obtaining his financial records through a subpoena.

There are plenty of federal judges ready to grant the request. They really aren't judges, just democrat hacks occupying the positions for times like these.
This concerns me, all Dems have to do is Judge shop and get a friendly Judge who rules they have to turn over the records.
Theres no law requiring any of them to release their tax returns. Its sort of like an early form of virtue signaling that was started (Im not sure, too lazy to search) by Nixon.
We have probable cause of wrongdoing, because we kept accusing him of wrongdoing, and we wouldn’t do that unless he was guilty. Mueller failed to find him guilty of anything, so now it’s up to us. Hand me that casting reel.
