Trump says tax returns release will ‘lead to horrible things for so many people’ – as it happened

  Michael Cohen reacts to Trump's tax returns: "Donald's time has come" Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen and investigative reporter for The New York Times David Fahrenthold discuss with Nicolle Wallace the release of the former president's tax returns by the House Ways and Means Committee and what the release means for Trump going forward. Trump has won against the January 6th Committee. According to Harmeet Dhillon last night, the January 6th Committee has dropped their subpoena of Trump to testify before the committee. “After my firm filed suit on separation of powers grounds to block January 6 House Select Committee’s illegitimate subpoena to President Trump over his activities while president— the committee waved the white flag & withdrew subpoena.”   Trump responds to release of returns Donald Trump has responded to the release of his tax returns by Democrats on the House ways and means committee, saying that they “show how proudly successful I have be

BREAKING: The 11th Circuit reverses the order granting Trump the special master review of docs seized at Mar-a-Lago, paving way for Justice Dept to obtain all materials for the criminal investigation

Former special counsel at the Department of Defense Ryan Goodman and former Nixon White House counsel John Dean explain to CNN's Erin Burnett why a federal appeals court decision to halt a special master review of documents seized from Mar-a-Lago estate is a "direct blow" to former President Donald Trump's case. Here’s more from the AP: A unanimous federal appeals court on Thursday ended an independent review of documents seized from former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate, removing a hurdle the Justice Department said had delayed its criminal investigation into the retention of top-secret government information. The decision by the three-judge panel represents a significant win for federal prosecutors, clearing the way for them to use as part of their investigation the entire tranche of documents seized during an Aug. 8 FBI search of Mar-a-Lago. It also amounts to a sharp repudiation of arguments by Trump’s lawyers, who for months had said that the former p

BREAKING: Trump's tax returns now in the hands of House Democrats after lengthy court battle

  The IRS just gave 6 years of Donald Trump's tax returns to the House Ways and Means Committee. How long until someone “leaks” them? I’m quite sure we’ll be reading articles about Trump’s taxes by the weekend. Because that’s the goal here, to destroy Trump. He’s already announced his candidacy for 2024 and Democrats will be leaking items before long. This is nothing more than the politics of destruction at its worst.

NBC News explains how Trump was “blindsided” by Kanye West and Milo Yiannopoulos

  Just weeks after announcing his third run for the White House, former President Trump is facing backlash after hosting a dinner at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida with rapper Ye and white nationalist Nick Fuentes last week. NBC News’ Marc Caputo breaks down how the encounter took place and how lawmakers from both sides of the aisle are reacting.  The article indicates that since Trump’s dinner with Kanye, his campaign has instituted better vetting procedures to keep people like Fuentes and Yiannopoulos away from Trump. I would hope that someone sends this article to Mitch McConnell so he can apologize to Trump for attacking him yesterday on the basis of a false narrative perpetrated by Trump’s foes in the media and among Democrats. Yes I know, that’s never going to happen. But it should.

Figures on CNN and MSNBC claimed the Trump-appointed judge was ‘corrupt’ and that the decision would benefit the former president.

  A Trump-appointed judge granted Donald Trump's special master request, thereby delaying parts of the Justice Department's criminal probe. “When you allow Republicans to control the courts you get nothing,” legal expert Elie Mystal says to Joy Reid, adding his view that, “Trump judges do not believe in the rule of law.” Following a federal judge’s ruling to grant former President Trump a special master to review evidence obtained by FBI agents from his Mar-a-Lago estate, left-leaning media figures on MSNBC and CNN cried foul, and slammed the judge for her decision.  MSNBC’s "The ReidOut" host Joy Reid hosted an entire panel of disgruntled interviewees on Monday, with guests claiming that the judge’s decision was wrong and "corrupt," among other things. "Trump—he always looks at things as my or mine. My generals, my Kevin, my classified documents, my judges. Apparently he’s got one," Reid said as she smirked.  She then past on the baton to frequ
