Gorsuch has actually been what I thought he might be, and that is somewhat reasonable. He seems to relieve in prior case law and statutory law.

(CNN) - Supreme Court puts temporary hold on House subpoenas to banks for Trump's financial documents

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday put a temporary hold on House subpoenas requesting President Donald Trump's financial documents from two banks. In a brief order, Ginsburg said a lower court opinion that allowed the subpoenas to proceed would go on hold until December 13.

Earlier in the day, Trump had asked the justices to freeze the subpoenas to give his personal lawyers more time to ask the Supreme Court to take up his appeal.

Ginsburg, who has jurisdiction over the lower court, likely acted to give her colleagues more time to consider Trump's request. She also instructed the House to respond to Trump's petition by Wednesday.

Lawyers for Trump told the justices that the subpoenas are "extraordinarily broad" and that they raise "profound separation-of-powers concerns."

In all, three separate cases pertaining to Trump's records -- two of which concern House subpoenas -- are before the justices. Ginsburg's order signals that all of the petitions could be considered by the court December 13 during its regularly scheduled closed-door conference. No documents are expected to be released until the Supreme Court acts.

FEDERAL JUDGE RULES LAWSUIT AGAINST TRUMP CORPORATION WILL GO FORWARD
BY AILA SLISCO - NEWSWEEK
5/19/20 AT 12:18 AM EDT

A federal judge ruled Monday that a lawsuit alleging President Donald Trump engaged in fraud by promoting a pyramid scheme will not be delayed.

District Judge Lorna G. Schofield ruled that the class action lawsuit can move forward despite Trump's legal counsel requesting a stay. The lawsuit, led by four anonymous plaintiffs, claims that the Trump and his children Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Ivanka Trump are guilty of fraud, false advertising and unfair competition for their dealings with multi-level marketing company ACN, although federal racketeering and conspiracy charges were dismissed last year.

Schofield's decision came after Trump's lawyers launched interlocutory appeals in the case—a type of legal appeal filed while a case is ongoing rather than it after it has finished. The judge cited Trump's unsuccessful bid to force the case into arbitration "despite the absence of any written agreement" as a reason why an appeal was unlikely to be successful. Other factors in the decision included how much harm a stay would inflict on either party, along with what decision would be in the best interest of the public.

"Weighing the two 'most critical' factors -- likelihood of success on the merits and irreparable harm -- against each other, any prejudice that Defendants and ACN may suffer from proceeding with the litigation during the pendency of the appeal does not outweigh the strong likelihood that Defendants and ACN will not succeed on appeal," the judge wrote.

In March, Schofield ordered Trump to provide the plaintiffs with 15 years of detailed records that could include information relevant to the case. She ruled against the attempt to force arbitration the following month.

Trump's relationship with ACN is said to have begun in the mid-2000s, continuing until just before he began campaigning for president. The lawsuit was originally filed in October 2018, alleging that the Trumps never disclosed their relationship with ACN as they made millions by falsely claiming that vulnerable investors would have a "reasonable probability of success" if they spent hundreds of dollars or more to join the scheme.

"The Trumps conned each of these victims into giving up hundreds or thousands of dollars—losses that many experienced as a devastating and life-altering," the lawsuit claims. "Surely the Trumps dismissed these amounts (and the lives they wrecked) as trivial. But by defrauding so many for so long, the Trumps made millions."

Trump insisted that he was "not familiar" with the company's business practices after launching his 2016 presidential campaign, despite having earlier spoken on behalf of the company at events and in promotional videos, as well as featuring them on The Celebrity Apprentice.

Newsweek reached out to the Trump Organization for comment. This article will be updated with any response.

(CNN) - NY prosecutors say Trump investigation extends beyond hush money payments

Manhattan prosecutors on Monday asked a federal judge to dismiss President Donald Trump's lawsuit challenging a subpoena for his financial records, arguing that the claims have already been rejected by other courts, while emphasizing that their investigation extends beyond hush-money payments.

Last week, lawyers for Trump filed an amended complaint seeking to block the state grand jury subpoena to Trump's long-time accountant Mazars USA for eight years of personal and business records by arguing the subpoena was "wildly overbroad" and issued in bad faith.

Trump's latest legal challenge comes after the US Supreme Court ruled last month that the President does not have broad immunity from a state grand jury subpoena.

In a court filing Monday, lawyers for Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance said, "This 'new' filing contains nothing new whatsoever, and Plaintiff has utterly failed to make a 'stronger showing of bad faith than he previously made to this Court."

The district attorney's office added that Trump's lawyers are relying on a false assumption that the investigation is limited to hush-money payments made to two women during the 2016 presidential campaign who alleged affairs with Trump. Trump has denied the affairs.

"Plaintiff's argument that the Mazars Subpoena is overbroad fails for the additional reason that it rests on the false premise that the grand jury's investigation is limited to so-called 'hush-money' payments made by Michael Cohen on behalf of Plaintiff in 2016," the district attorney's office said.

CNN has previously reported that Vance is investigating other transactions that go beyond the hush-money payments.

As a suggestion that the district attorney's probe is expansive, Vance's lawyers wrote Monday that when the subpoena was issued, "there were public allegations of possible criminal activity at Plaintiff's New York County-based Trump Organization dating back over a decade."

They added that "in light of these public reports of possibly extensive and protracted criminal conduct at the Trump Organization, there was nothing facially improper (or even particularly unusual) about the Mazars Subpoena, which issued in connection with a complex financial investigation, requesting eight years of records from an accounting firm."

Oh. My. Goodness.

(CNN) - New York Times: Prosecutors subpoenaed Trump's bank in criminal inquiry

New York prosecutors subpoenaed President Donald Trump's primary lender as part of the Manhattan district attorney's criminal investigation into the President's business practices, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

Four people familiar with the inquiry told the newspaper that Deutsche Bank was subpoenaed last year for financial records that Trump and the Trump Organization provided the bank. The bank complied with the subpoena and provided the Manhattan district attorney's office with financial statements, records and other materials, two of the people familiar told The Times. Both Deutsche Bank and the Manhattan DA's office declined to comment Wednesday.

News of the subpoena comes after prosecutors on Monday signaled that their investigation extends beyond hush-money payments and asked a federal judge to dismiss Trump's lawsuit challenging a subpoena for his financial records.

Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance's lawyers have previously said the probe is expansive, and on Monday they pointed out that when the subpoena was issued, "there were public allegations of possible criminal activity at Plaintiff's New York County-based Trump Organization dating back over a decade."



OHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! They've GOT the records!!!

Well, some of them, at least. They still want his accounting firm to hand over his tax records.

And once they get those, won't it be fun to compare how he valued his assets (high) for bank lending purposes versus how he valued those same assets (low) for tax purposes!?!

Yes....

With Trump fighting tooth and nail to prevent Mazars to turn over the accounting records, I wonder if the New York subpoena to DeutcheBank just sailed under the radar....

Isn't it interesting that things are so bad that we celebrate such a ruling that before this would have been taken for granted?

Re: Trump Family Finance Schemes


The brazenness of Bannon and other members of the contemporary aristocracy still astounds me. It is fitting that he was busted on a 150 foot yacht, no doubt enjoying the social status afforded him by his ill gotten gains.

I joked with Sandy last night that Trump’s response to the news would be, Steve who?

Judge denies Trump’s bid for a stay of subpoena in Manhattan DA’s tax records case
FRI, AUG 21 2020 11:33 AM
by Kevin Breuninger - CNBC

A federal judge on Friday denied President’s Donald Trump’s bid to temporarily block a ruling allowing a subpoena for his tax returns and other financial records.

The ruling came a day after the judge rejected Trump’s latest attempt to stop the Manhattan District Attorney’s office from enforcing a subpoena issued to his accounting firm.

Trump’s lawyers on Thursday had filed a request for an emergency stay pending an appeal of that ruling. Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for Trump, told CNBC in an email Friday that the president’s legal team planned to file another motion for a stay in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.

U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero wrote in his order Friday that Trump “has not demonstrated that he will suffer irreparable harm.”

“The Court notes that its views remain unchanged with respect to the President’s likelihood of success on the merits,” Marrero added, “particularly given the concerns addressed in the August 20 Decision regarding the effect of further delay on the grand jury’s investigation.”

The subpoena from D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr., directed to the president’s longtime accounting firm Mazars USA, seeks the president’s personal and business records, including tax returns, dating to 2011.

Last month, the Supreme Court rejected the president’s claims that he was immune from state criminal subpoenas in the New York case, ruling in Vance’s favor. That 7-2 decision left open the possibility for Trump to argue that the subpoena should be thrown out, or limited, on other grounds.

Less than three weeks later, Trump’s lawyers filed a new effort in Manhattan federal court to quash Vance’s subpoena. The second complaint argued that the subpoena is “wildly overbroad” and “amounts to harassment of the President in violation of his legal rights.”

(CNN) - Court orders Donald Trump to pay legal fees in Stormy Daniels suit

A California Superior Court judge has ordered President Donald Trump to pay $44,100 to Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, to reimburse her attorneys' fees in the legal battle surrounding her nondisclosure agreement.

The judge's order was issued Monday but posted online Friday by Clifford's attorneys.

Clifford, an adult-film actress who says she had an affair with Trump from 2006 to 2007, signed a $130,000 nondisclosure agreement with former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who represented a shell company and a "David Dennison," which Clifford contends is a pseudonym for Trump. Trump denies the affair occurred.

Clifford sued Trump in 2018, seeking to be released from the NDA. In response, Trump and his legal team agreed outside of court not to sue or otherwise enforce the NDA. The suit was dismissed and Clifford's claims ruled moot, as the NDA had been rendered unenforceable.

Monday's decision was a response to Clifford's efforts to be reimbursed for costs and attorney's fees related to the case.

In his decision this week, Judge Robert Broadbelt III ruled that Clifford was entitled to legal fees, finding her the "prevailing party" under California law, despite the case having been dismissed.



Cooter, can Trump be held in contempt if he refuses to pay? If so, what happens to Trump?
