IANAL, but they have to move quickly to not only file the appeal but get a stay granted from the appellate court, since the ruling ended the stay that was in place. I’m sure President Biff’s lawyers won’t hand over the returns, but the subpoena was also issued to his accountants, and they might not be as keen on jail time.

Whither the IRS? Speaking of people who are legally required to act according to the law… Why must the returns come from the people filing them?

This ruling affects the subpoenas from the State of New York. They did not subpoena the IRS, to my knowledge. Congress has subpoena’ed the IRS for his tax returns, and that case is still pending.

“At every step of the way, he is executing Russian foreign policy. He is basically Putin’s foreign minister. They have him. It’s over,” Kander said.

Also…

"Managing and containing the combustive mixture of volatile factors in the U.S.-Russian relationship is a daunting but far from impossible challenge. Washington’s approach must dispassionately balance firmness with accommodation, military readiness with diplomatic outreach—all without skewing too far toward either concession or confrontation. It’s a difficult balance, but the United States is not even attempting it at the moment." -Politico

Hmmm I wonder why?

Edit: Putin’s birthday was today. Kicking the Kurds to the curb will make Putin very happy.

Back off or I’ll impeach your ass!

I still don’t understand how unflappable his cult following is that he’s managed to keep a near constant 40% across his time in office (ignoring the outliers like Rasmussen that always oversample Republicans).

The same 40% that lifted Hitler into power.

Man, they should get him to play Trump on SNL. Or is it too over the top?

It’s so messed up that we have a president that uses the threat of impeachment as a ploy to gain votes. That it’s all a fucking game. That his only concern isn’t being looked back as someone that put kids in cages, rolled back civil rights, rolled back environmental protections, used every opportunity to profit from public service, let thousands of US citizens die because indifference, cozied up to dictators and strongmen, got into a senseless trade war with no end game - but as someone that was impeached.
