Yeah, some people have gone to prison, but it's usually people of color...

Yesterday, MO Nov 4th, a three-judge panel for the Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled: “Presidential immunity does not bar a state grand jury from issuing a subpoena in aid of its investigation of potential crimes committed by persons within its jurisdiction, even if that investigation may in some way implicate the president.”

Trump attorney Jay Sekulow pledged to appeal the 2nd Circuit's ruling to the Supreme Court, saying in a statement, "The issue raised in this case goes to the heart of our Republic. The constitutional issues are significant.”

I hope that the SCOTUS declines Trump's appeal to them. smile

I suspect they'll side with the lower courts and save themselves the trouble of ruling against Trump.

But there's a catch. The rulings against Trump in the lower courts were for completely different reasons so the Supremes might want to take another look at it from a strictly constitutional viewpoint.

As the Second Circuit Court of Appeals stated, this is a state's rights grand jury issue. Hmm

As you Ranters may or may not know, Trump has recently put his DC Trump International hotel up for sale. The Trump Organization recently took the Trump name off of the two Central Park ice-skating rinks that it owns.

My suspicion is these acts were not done to satisfy an Emoluments issue, but in preparation for when Trump is exposed as a fraud and tax cheat, thereby preventing the government from seizing property in an asset forfeiture.

Now that Trump has officially moved his residence out of the 531 5th AV penthouse in Trump Tower, if Trump Tower goes up for sale, my suspicion will be validated.

Rick ... I have to wonder if the conspiratorial paranoia of right wingers has somehow infected you.

My guess is he has enough money he can stay out of court the rest of his life, so it wouldn't matter why.

I don't believe that Trump has a pot to piss in. Trump's wealth is all smoke and mirrors and a house of cards with him. We're all about to find out if my suspicions are correct. Hmm
