  • Trump Loses Again in Court...

    A federal judge on Monday dismissed
    President Donald Trump's lawsuit
    to prevent the House Ways and Means Committee from
    utilizing a recently passed New York law
    providing the panel an avenue to pursue his state
    tax returns

    Judge Carl Nichols of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that his court was not the proper jurisdiction to sue the New York officials named in the lawsuit, leaving open the option that Trump do so in the Empire State.

    In his lawsuit, Trump sued to preemptively block the House Ways and Means Committee from requesting the returns, New York Attorney General Letitia James from enforcing the law, and to stop the New York Department of Taxation from furnishing the documents. Trump argued his lawsuit was necessary to prevent his state returns from being disclosed to Congress before a court could hear his opposition.
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    Wow! A rarity. A Trump appointed judge rules against Trump.

    "Based on the current allegations, Mr. Trump has not met his burden of establishing personal jurisdiction over either of the New York Defendants," Nichols, a Trump appointee, wrote. "The Court therefore need not reach the question of proper venue. Accordingly, the New York Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss is granted, and Mr. Trump’s Amended Complaint is dismissed without prejudice as to them."

    Rare enough that the MSM even mentions it.

      The ruling is procedural. It has nothing to do with the substance of trump’s claim. He just needs to refill where the court has jurisdiction over the defendants
      There is nothing in the ruling that prevents him from trying again elsewhere.
