The Washington Post - House Democrats likely to seek 10 years of Trump’s tax returns in coming weeks

 

March 5 at 9:21 AM

 


Congressional Democrats are likely to request 10 years of President Trump’s tax returns in coming weeks, tailoring their inquiry in a way they hope will survive a court battle, according to lawmakers and others involved in the discussions. ...

 

Democrats led by House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard E. Neal (D-Mass.), along with congressional lawyers, are in the advanced stages of preparing the request.

 

They’re relying on a 1924 law that gives chairmen of House and Senate tax-writing committees broad powers to demand the tax returns of White House officials. ...

Trump set the tone and laid down the challenge at the beginning when he started making false accusations about his opponents and those who did not flatter him, and launched his unwarranted attacks on the free press and other media he didn't approve of.  What goes around comes around. He is about to discover just what a real fight is.

Had to laugh at dated Trump cameos... This time was watching an early episode of Warehouse 13 last week (staying at home after surgery makes you do crazy stuff) and one of the characters said "This guy is so rich he could outbid Donald Trump!"

 

The episode is about ten years old. Not as old as Trump appearing at the hotel lobby in Home Alone II.

The New York Times - Border at ‘Breaking Point’ as More than 76,000 Migrants Cross in a Month

 

March 5, 2019

 


For the fourth time in five months, the number of migrant families crossing the southwest border has broken records, border enforcement authorities said Tuesday, warning that government facilities are full and agents are overwhelmed.

 

More than 76,000 migrants crossed the border without authorization in February, more than double the levels from the same period last year and approaching the largest numbers seen in any February in the last 12 years.

 

“The system is well beyond capacity, and remains at the breaking point,” Kevin K. McAleenan, commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, told reporters in announcing the new data.

 

Diverted by new restrictions at many of the leading ports of entry, migrant families, mainly from Central America, continue to arrive in ever-larger groups in remote parts of Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

 

At least 70 such groups of 100 or more people have turned themselves in at Border Patrol stations that typically are staffed by only a handful of agents, often hours away from civilization.

 

By comparison, only 13 such groups arrived in the last fiscal year, and two in the year before.

 

More than 90 percent of the new arrivals were from Guatemala ...

 


 

 

These are US Customs and Border Protection stats, not "Trump numbers".

March 6, 2019

The Washington Post - Major brands avoid Trump even as he promotes them from the White House

 

March 5

 

In a scene probably worth millions of dollars in free advertising, President Trump displayed a spread of burgers from some of the country’s biggest fast-food chains inside the State Dining Room of the White House on Monday as hungry football players looked on. With cameras rolling, he offered a presidential endorsement of “all-American” restaurants ...

 


... but the companies haven’t been quick to return the affection or attempt to cash in on the presidential product placement, with McDonald’s, Chick-fil-A and Wendy’s all remaining silent about Trump’s endorsements. ...

The New York Times - Cohen Sues the Trump Organization, Saying He Was Denied $1.9 Million in Legal Fees After Cooperating With Prosecutors

 

March 7, 2019

 


Michael D. Cohen, the former personal lawyer and fixer for President Trump, sued the Trump Organization on Thursday, accusing the company of breaking a contract by refusing to pay about $1.9 million in legal costs after Mr. Cohen began cooperating with federal prosecutors.

 

The lawsuit, filed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan, said that the Trump Organization had failed to live up to an agreement to pay for Mr. Cohen’s legal fees or related costs connected to his work with the Trump Organization.

 

Mr. Cohen is also seeking reimbursement for an additional $1.9 million he was ordered to pay in fines, forfeiture and restitution after he pleaded guilty to breaking campaign finance laws, evading taxes and lying to Congress, the lawsuit said. ...
