Another Judge Rules Congress Can Get Donald Trump Financial Docs | The Last Word | MSNBC Another Judge Rules Congress Can Get Donald Trump Financial Docs | The Last Word | MSNBCThere is no doubt that, someday soon, a federal judge is going to order. The treasury secretary and the director of the IRS to Handover Donald Trump’s tax returns to the chairman of the Ways and Means Committee and the judge who issues that will know out, be echoing and possibly even specifically, citing the order issued by a federal judge in New York City today, who ordered Deutsche Bank to comply with a house subpoena for the Trump records in his opinion today, that’s referred specifically to the judge’s opinion on Monday. That was the first to order compliance with a house subpoena for Trump Financial records from an accounting. Firm federal judges are now Donald, Trump’s, worst enemies because are following the law and because they don’t play Trump games. Federal courtrooms do not allow the kinds of silly statements that Donald Trump makes at his rallies. Are these silly stunts that he pulls in the White House like the stunts he pulled today in the White House? President Trump actually scheduled a ridiculous stunt in the white house today so that he could use it as the basis for it even more ridiculous. Stunts minutes later in the White House rose garden, and the only thing that will remembered from his stunts upon a stunt is that the president of the United States actually said this. I don’t do cover ups, no president, who did not do cover up ever said. I don’t do cover ups, the closest Richard Nixon came to that was, I am not a crook and Richard Nixon was forced to resign the presidency because he did cover-ups, but he was never but foolish enough to say I don’t do cover and President Trump said that Today, because this morning the Speaker of the House said this, would you believe that it’s important for them to follow the facts? We believe that no one is above the law, including the present, and we believe that the president United States is engaged in a cover-up. In a cover-up – and that was the nature text you an extra, especially when it is a criminal accusation against you like cover up any half competent White House staff, would have strongly advise the president not to use the word cover up today or ever. The president was in the Rose Garden to reporters why he was not in the cabinet room where he was scheduled to be at at that moment, in a meeting with the Democratic Leadership of the house in the Senate to talk about possible infrastructure legislation. But the president said he was incapable of doing his job. She heard that Nancy Pelosi and actually use the word cover up instead of walking in Happily into a meeting. I walk in to look at people that I just said that I was doing a cover-up. I don’t do cover ups, you people know that probably better than anybody, and that will tag there – that is one of Donald Trump’s, classic pathological tells the you. People know that probably better than anybody Bentley says that for the White House Press Corps, knowing that they are a lot all walked into a traditional politeness that prevents them from screaming back at him know. We don’t know that better than anybody. Most of us have written stories in which you are reported to be engaged. It is an important part of the Trump public technique when he throws in that line. You people probably know that better than anybody – and it is met with silence. That silence is important, because Donald Trump in the TV audience is mind thanks anyway, but that silence affirms that those people really do know better than anybody that what he just said is true. Donald Trump uses the White House Press Corps as a prop, as he did today and use the Democratic Congressional leadership as a prop. Once again, Dana is now telling America that no dangerous bridge will be repaired. Not one penny of in infrastructure Improvement will occur in the United States of America. As long as the President of the United States is being investigated, and I told Senator Schumer speaker policy, I want to do infrastructure. I want to do it more than you want to do it. I’D be really good at that. That’S what I do, but you know what you can’t do it under these circumstances, so get these phony investigations over with that statement alone by any other president would be an impeachable offence to say, will not perform perform my constitutional Duty as long as I’m being investigated Would be in enough itself an article of impeachment against any other president, but this Congress has a Republican Senate which will abide any violation of Donald Trump’s oath of office and how already invited many of them, and the Democratic house is now apparently lost on What impeachable Offense actually means they all agree, even the speaker that the president has committed impeachable offenses, but they do not agree with the president, be impeached for impeachable offenses, and they have yet to explain that this is the first time in history that a Party in the House Of Representatives has had such a tortured relationship to the issue of impeachment, but the courts are on against the president in ways that are possibly almost as devastating as impeachment. The funny thing about the word impeachment compared to the word cover is the President. Trump has finally found a word that he thinks a president just do not say all of a sudden. I hear last night they’re going to have a meeting right before this meeting. To talk about the I word b, I would can you imagine what I could not imagine find word that he is afraid to say in public. You know they say confidential sources anymore. The person doesn’t exist. The person is not alive, it’s b******* from the start, the only possibility for the poor infrastructure has been that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer and build a road to nowhere, because the Democrats and the Trump party will never agree on infrastructure legislation. Some Democrats would be willing to pay for infrastructure spending with a gasoline tax or cuts to defense spending, and Republicans would not me to pay for infrastructure spending at all.. Zero Republicans would not support infrastructure spending. They would simply support giant tax breaks for companies engaged in very Loosely defined infrastructure Pro, so there has never been even a 1 % of a possibility chance of an agreement on infrastructure. Legislation and Democrats knew that, but they did not want to appear to be unwilling to negotiate with the with President Trump and so Chuck. Schumer have repeatedly allowed to the possibility of negotiations in their last discussion with the present, they asked to present to present them with proposals for how to pay for infrastructure spending. That was the point of today’s meeting in a normal White House. The president would have walked into the room with the budget director with perhaps the treasury secretary and perhaps the transportation secretary, and they would lay out infrastructure options with different price tags and different ways of paying for those project. And there would be a given take at the table in the the kind of meeting that I saw many times in that room when I was a senate, staffer and it might take months, but in that room using those puzzle, parts and agreement would eventually emerge. That is the adult job of the presidency of Donald Trump and will never do and said today. He will not do, and so it became another stunt day at the White House with a president who is now on record as being the first president in history to go on strike. The presents was going to stay on strike as long as he’s being investigated. So I’ve said from the beginning: right from the beginning that you probably can’t go down two tracks, you can go down the investigation tract and you can go down the investment track or the track of. Let’S get things done for the American people. We have my two favorite people to discuss skunk day at the White House Tonight leading offer discussion, Eugene Robinson coming book, which I have read and Bluff The Man Who Sold America. One of those subjects that requires a mix of sensitivity of the policy and government supposed to work, and I think you better bring a sense of humor to get through it you’re going to have to bring a sense of humor to it. So he piles on top of the Anthony, goes on strike biggest. I apologize profusely for cackling in the background Big B Money, Democratic, entire response to Trump. He’s got some master strategy. Affection, Donald Trump is terrified of humiliation. Donald Trump is terrified of being exposed. That’S why you so freaked out about his business records Democrats are more afraid of trump and more afraid of this magical bass. That’S going to come out and bring it. If it’s going to fall in love with me, then they are of their own based bird bills. In this house, Shane Battier that Congress was able to do things like basically proving the predator budget Act of 1974 Nixon signs it on July 12th created the Congressional budget office. Everything about Federal budgeting was defined in that very complex log that the Nixon Administration tracked responsibly. They did their jobs and the president frankly did his job. Stop. The Nixon Administration for its many floors was the presidency, let alone you know the brilliant people that we usually see it. Administration, people who really know the ins-and-outs of the federal budget, really no infrastructure who who are committed to the idea of and not be idea of, grifting themselves into into a bigger house in a better pool which is kind of what we have now. So it shouldn’t be a surprise Play, Never we’re going to have one and they don’t have one. They have no idea how to find it, and so they came up with a stud or two steps right Democrats did today and and how they come out. Looking is your right there. They are wrong 4 dimensional chess strategy, Permethrin important for Democrats to be sitting there, saying, let’s get stuff done and for the president to say I won’t do anything. I will hold my breath until I turned blue and they stop investigating. If that was Bill, Clinton’s Choice when he was being investigated, what book was the only thing you could possibly do? He wanted to appear to be studiously doing his job every single day, and there was no real look evidence that he wasn’t studiously doing his job. Every single day and as a result, his Bill Clinton’s job approval rating went up when he appeared to be seriously doing his job while being investigated. Consider that possibility and then they see him being impeached over sexual affair ever going to do the business of the country. That’S what I question with the Democratic, the president is just a joke about the Democratic Leadership. The level did five in mm today, an infrastructure plan with infrastructure plan that was compromisable in ways that Democrats would have trouble turning down, and at least could have been weeks of Donald Trump appearing to do his job. What if he made. book, is The Man Who Sold America, joy and Eugene? Thank you both very much when starting ass off tonight really appreciate it. Breast of MSNBC Trump stormed out of an infrastructure meeting with Democrats after just three minutes. As more Democrats back impeachment Trump loses again in court. Eugene Robinson and Joy Reid join Lawrence O’Donnell.
