Call me Pollyanna. I think that Trump is merely using delay tactics, trying to run out the clock. Many experts who understand the law much better than I, agree. In the end he will lose. The Law will win!
The validity of that "lawful subpoena" is what is now being decided in the courts. And it is appropriate that the director of the IRS pend any action until that conclusion is handed down. At some point the IRS will have to adhere to the ruling of the courts....not the wishes of Donald Trump.
The courts have no authority over what the congress feels it needs to fulfill its constitutional oversight authority.
God help us if that ever changes and your thinking reveals a basic misunderstanding of our checks and balances.
Your ignorance on this subject is dangerous to democracy.
The fact that you don't see that is sad because you pose as such a moderate/thoughtful member.
You are attacking our separation of powers and thus the essence of democracy.!
Well, I hope you're wrong about that. I hope that law enforcement and military leaders would uphold their vows to side with the constitution in such a scenario. I'm afraid that we might get to find out, before all is said and done.
Federal LEOS will not support a criminal president.
Ask FBI Agents Comey, McCabe and many others who were fired for doing their jobs and upholding our Cotus against a madman tyrant was has the backing of a complicit political party.
Edit: At the risk of sounding pompous......I think it's no secret that federal LEO's have to be better educated and smarter than the typical local LEO and are much better trained.
There....I said it!
Correcting my spelin'? How anal. Oversite ,or SIGHT, or Cite, or whatever this is? This is NOT what is happening. This is a political hit job. Why? Because Dems ALWAYS behave like spoiled brats when they LOSE. God Bless our Great and Just President, Donald J Trump. May his name be Exalted forever!
