Two Years and Multiple Lawsuits Result in Nothing – Deutsche Bank Doesn’t Have Trump Tax Returns…

Two years of litigation, thousands of resistance hours used, millions spent on lawyers, and they don’t even get a T-Shirt.  Oh dear…  too funny.

(New York Times) If investigators are going to get their hands on President Trump’s tax returns, they will have to find them somewhere other than Deutsche Bank.

The German bank has told a federal appeals court that it does not have the president’s personal tax returns, the court said on Thursday. (read more)

I know that sounds crazy to many, because of the intricate and complicated detail, but very possible if enough info to reverse engineer is in place….think about it: there is a piece of paper for EVERYTHING in government…that is why Hillary went rogue. But government is hardwired to be regimental and the bulk of the crap out there is damning and prolific enough they will never be able to eliminate all of it.

          I watched when Trump gave this speech. I laughed when Trump did the punchline “The media will reward you handsomely” I only saw this Hillary video yesterday.

          Hillary did the joke with the punchline, just replacing Russia with China. So they know it was a joke but the media just cuts the punchline and makes it look like Trump was asking for help from Russia.

          When I was watching Cory testimony, one house member made an impeachment case presentation. The presentation starts off with the cut video of the joke, and everything else builds off the cut video.

          I suppose Cory could not respond to the prestation because it was not a question, but I was really rooting for Cory to respond to that.

          So the joke of impeachment is based off a Trump joke. Hillary making the full joke blows the dems out of the water.

            True. Even though the old 2-4-4-2 could pull the consist out of the station at record speed, the Dash helps keep the old boy from burning rail (from wheel slippage) because the sanding is more efficient on the modern Diesel with electric traction motors. Don’t know if sanding was ever installed on the ‘big boy’… Dynamic braking can only be controlled from the cab of the Dash unless, some genius provided controls to the steam driver… Driving a monster steam engine is several times more difficult than flying an ‘old’ helicopter which I deem “like tap dancing on marbles”…
            Been both places and prefer steam for a living if there was a choice…

              To those not familiar with ‘old’ train history, there were 4 people required to ‘drive’ a train. The Engineer (1) was the ‘pilot’ who actually drove the traction engine and operated the controls that made the train go. The Fireman (2) was the guy that lobbed logs or shoveled coal into the firebox that made the fire that turned water into steam that made the the whole thing do what the Engineer wanted. The Conductor (3) was the logistics guy that kept the records of freight or passengers to be able to make money for the train company. The Brakeman (4) was the guy that ran along the top of the cars and turned a wheel on each car to apply a mechanical brake to (eventually) stop the train. George Westinghouse came up with a fail-safe braking system that was universally applied to trains and commercial trucks known as the ‘air brake’. This eliminated the job of the Brakeman.
              The modern Diesel-Electric train engine still employs the (union required) personnel from the old days however, the Engineer is also the Conductor and the Fireman is also the Brakeman. But, the Fireman operates as the maintenance guy and is responsible for most maintenance related tasks. The Engineer however, is the the ONE responsible if it all goes wrong…
              Regarding sanding (from above) most traction engines can apply more power to the wheels than can be used move the train. This results in the traction wheels spinning on the rails and causing deep burns in the rail. Sand (like sandbox sand) is delivered by a pipe just in front of each traction wheel and is used like traction control in modern cars. In modern Engines this is automatic. However, in old steam engines the Engineer had to apply a lever or turn a valve for EACH wheel that needed sand (if equipped)…

My Uncle had a story of being stuck on the grade over the blue mountains with a diesel consist-all the old Alco FA -high geared low hp compared to EMD’s-this was at the tail end of the Steam era and they had a Challenger 4-6-6-4 sitting at

        I was born in 1951 and the last steam engine was retired in 1955. So I must have been three when I accepted my mother’s invitation to see my father off at the Train station for a business trip. We were there when the most impressive beast of my short life appeared. It came in chugging slower and slower, shaking the very earth itself. It was blowing its whistle and emitting so much steam that at times only half the engine was visible. The entire 5 minutes it dropped and loaded passengers, someone was ringing a bell incessantly. As it left there was a huge chug, followed by another and another, each one was shorter than the previous. Suddenly black smoke was emitted in the steam from its stack, followed seconds later by red hot sparks. I was so thoroughly impressed that I spent the rest of my life building and designing machinery.

          I posted on this here a long time ago. Just went and looked up the several pages of notes. The House Finance Committee Chair PDJT tax return request has three problems despite the seemingly clear IRS law ‘upon request shall furnish’ wording because he asked for 6? years of returns from PDJT only. Complex background of wording’s legislative history (going back to Teapot Dome scandal) and of SCOTUS rulings on legislative oversight. Predicted that PDJT would lose because in DC at circuit level (correct), might lose at appellate level (correct), but would almost certainly win at SCOTUS. TBD.

          To summarize the much longer post from months ago:
          1. If proper legislative oversight of the 1976 law mandating IRS special audit of all Pres/VP returns, then should not have asked for the first four years.
          2. If proper legislative oversight of real estate developer returns, should have asked for more than just PDJT.
          3. Request amounts to a prohibited A1§9.3 bill of attainder under SCOTUS precedents dating back to post civil war reconstruction.

          Plus, any leak is a major felony so there really isn’t any lawful political leverage.

            Ristvan, I started a to post in another thread, expounding on today’s hrg before DC CC Appeals. My iPhone died, so I had to pick up and try to recall several points as pertains to THIS (tax returns) and emoluments. I’m a bit pressed for time, but here goes…

            Having listened to Trump v Mazar oral arguments before DCCCA (Elijah Cummings Comm subpoenaing PT tax returns, under the guise of legislation), bear in mind the 3 panel Judges are split 2/1…(Millet/obama, Tatel/Clinton, and Rao/Trump.

            Two takeaways:
            Trump personal counsel was q as to why DOJ did not join as relates to constitutional argument, Consovoy did not offer a good argument. Other than that, he was under fire from Millet and to a lesser degree Tatel, but presented a lengthy “vanilla” argument. No bombshells.

            Douglas Letter, counsel for the HOR, interestingly, in arguing the issue of tax returns, chose to interject the emoluments case. Now here”s where the left hand (given the “all hands on deck” harassment of the President) doesn’t appear to know what the right hand is doing.

            Judge Tatel challenged on deference, as well as the number of yrs of returns requested (prior to T assuming presidency). IOW, if there were questions as to Trump’s (shady) financials prior to assuming the lease on the Old Post Office in 2013, the GSA (agency who leases govt properties to private enterprise), would’ve flagged that (wouldn’t GSA have performed due diligence before leasing the property)? To wit, Douglas Letter argued, “it’s a well known MR. Trump plays w/financial statements….he’s been doing that”. WHAT???? Based on an unfounded statement from a convicted liar (Michael Cohen)?

            Unfortunately, approximately 2 weeks ago, in a little noticed House sub-committee hrg, on the emoluments issue, GSA (without divulging Trumps financials prior to entering into the lease), testified Trump was in compliance with the terms of the lease in all aspects, financially and contractually.

            The second (and most important as pertains to impeachment) “on the record” admission by Douglas Letter….

            Judge Rao inquired if there was any precedent whereby a House “committee” has the authority to “investigate” a President. Letter, having hemmed and hawed, stated “By its rules, the House has given the Oversight Committee the entire powers of the House into oversight matters…that is there in the rules”.

            Judge Rao, can you point to any historical examples where Congress has investigated or subpoenaed the President without a full vote of the House or Senate?

            At the top of my head, I don’t have an example….Letter pulled this rabbit out….ah yes, during the Civil War, the Congress gave a committee the authority to investigate the conduct of the war.

            Rao, there was no subpoena of the President (Lincoln), and wasn’t the issue addressed by the full House? Letter….well the Congress has changed dramatically since then.

            Twist..turn, Letter is on the record admitting there is no constitutional/precedent allowing an investigation of the President by a sole committee.

    The problem for the Demos is they have to appear to have obtained them legally before pretending there is Russian bribery money duly reported under “Other Income” on line 1 schedule 21. Of course there will also be income reporting from such activities as “fee income from destroying the environment” and the requisite “Bribes from Evangelicals” income.

Many times, POTUS has indicated his lack of concern over their release, but recognizes the unwarranted and disproportionate hysteria it creates in the MSM. After three years, none of us have observed a more transparent, productive leader and quite frankly, no rational person, after all he fights and stands for, could give a damn what is in them.

      That would be funny – after all the hysteria, Trump finally releases his surprisingly mundane tax forms showing that he pays taxes. Just release the form 1040, none of the underlying schedules. Made this much; deductions of that much; taxes of this much.

      Frankly, I would be surprised if he does much business under his own personal tax return, anyhow. I expect most if not all of his assets are held by the corporation and LLC’s, and he just pays himself a salary and/or earns returns via the equity he holds.

      I’m sure whatever he did it’s structure – legally – to minimize his federal, state, and local tax burden. Remember he’s not only a resident of New York, but of New York City.
