President Trump has been under siege from the media and disloyal traitors from within. Sure he like a good scrap but the piling on has gotten out of hand.
Trump needed a big win and he just got one.
Not in the court of public opinion, that crooked kangaroo court controlled by the liberal media, but in a real fair and balanced federal court.
The loss is devastating to the Democrats.
A federal judge on Tuesday dismissed a lawsuit from a group of 17 House Democrats seeking documents related to President Trump’s financial ties to his Washington, D.C., hotel.
The Democrats, all of whom serve on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, brought the case against the General Services Administration (GSA) in November in order to determine if Trump benefits financially from the hotel.
U.S. District Judge Amti Mehta wrote the Democrats do not have the legal standing to sue the GSA over this issue. He suggested they turn to other recourses, including congressional action, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The fact that a political remedy is hard to achieve does not automatically swing open the doors to the federal courts,” Mehta wrote, the Journal reported.
The Democrats did not immediately respond to the Journal’s request for comment.
They sued in DC’s U.S. District Court over the GSA’s failure to comply with the obscure “seven-member statute,” a 1928 law that mandates federal agencies provide documents requested by more than seven members of the House Oversight Committee, Politico reported in November.
Democrats had requested documents from the GSA about the hotel’s profits and expenses, as well as the agency’s communications with the White House. The GSA declined to produce the documents, according to the Journal.
“This lawsuit is not just about a hotel in Washington D.C.,” Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said in a statement at the time. “This is about the President defying a federal statute and denying our ability as Members of Congress to fulfill our constitutional duty to act as a check on the Executive Branch.”
