    Chris Wallace: Bombshell claim by John Bolton has Trump defenders 'spinning like crazy'
    The reported bombshell claim by former National Security Adviser John Bolton has left President Trump's defenders "spinning like crazy" and likely triggered a "furious" response by Senate Republicans toward the White House, "Fox News Sunday" anchor Chris Wallace said Monday.


    Appearing on Fox News' live coverage of the Senate impeachment trial, Wallace told anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum that he does not agree with the Trump team's attempts to downplay the New York Times report. In his forthcoming book, Bolton reportedly claims that Trump explicitly linked a hold on Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe and Hunter Biden.


    "If you want a sense of how big the news is that we've heard in the last 12 or 14 hours, just listen to the Trump supporters, like Congressman Lee Zeldin and others, spinning like crazy. You get a sense that this is really an important development in this case," said Wallace.

    Nothing too HIDE! What a Crook!
    Trump's lawyers tell Supreme Court that the President's financial documents shouldn't be turned over to House, Manhattan

    President Donald Trump's personal lawyers told the Supreme Court Monday that the House of Representatives and a Manhattan prosecutor should not be able to subpoena the President's longtime accounting firm and banks for his financial records, in a monumental dispute concerning separation of powers and claims of absolute immunity that will be heard by the justices later this term.


    For years, the President has been battling a broad range of legal challenges attempting to force the release of his tax returns and other financial documents, and now the Supreme Court will hear arguments on the dispute sometime this spring and render an opinion by July -- just as the presidential election is gearing up.
    "To call these subpoenas unprecedented would be an understatement," argued Jay Sekulow, one of the President's personal lawyers, in the opening briefs.
    "Unleashing each and every House committee to torment the President with legislative subpoena after legislative subpoena is a recipe for constitutional crisis," Sekulow said.
    The filings came as Chief Justice John Roberts is presiding over the Senate impeachment trial and Trump's legal team has spent hours on the Senate floor presenting the President's defense in the proceeding.
    In the cases regarding Trump's financial documents, lower courts have allowed the subpoenas to go forward but those decisions have been put on hold while the Supreme Court considers the issue.
    The justices will review two cases.
    In one, lawyers for the House or Representatives seek to subpoena Mazars, USA, Trump's long time accounting firm and two of his banks, Deutsche Bank and Capitol One, for a variety of his financial records. The House says it has a valid purpose to ask for the documents because Congress could use the information to change or amend its financial disclosure laws.
    "The election of a President who has decided to maintain his ties to a broad array of business ventures raises questions about the adequacy of existing legislation concerning financial disclosures, government contracts with federal officeholders, and government ethics, more generally," House General Counsel Douglas Letter told the Court in briefs filed during an earlier phase of the appeal.
    Among the issues the House is investigating are payments that Michael Cohen, the President's former personal lawyer, made to a third party. Trump eventually disclosed the Cohen payments in May 2018 as a liability of less than $250,000.
    Another House committee is also investigating whether banks are complying with anti-money laundering and due diligence compliance programs. House lawyers point to reports revealing that "several Trump properties were purchased using anonymous shell companies funded by Russian oligarchs alleged to have previously engaged in money laundering."
    "Exposing private details about individuals is not a power Congress holds," Sekulow said. "Publicly releasing information about individuals is a form of punishment."
    "The subpoenas are illegitimate because they make a sweeping demand for records that are, at best, tangentially related to the Committee's claimed legislative purpose," he added.
    The case will be argued by William S. Consovoy, Sekulow's co-counsel.
    A separate case arises out of a state criminal investigation led by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus C. Vance, who served a subpoena on Mazars, USA as part of an investigation into hush money payment to two women with whom the President allegedly had extramarital affairs pursuant to testimony of Cohen. The subpoenas seek records dating from 2011 to the present day concerning transactions unrelated to any unofficial acts of the President.
    Trump's lawyers argue he is immune from such requests made while he is President.
    "The Constitution vests in the President -- and in him alone -- the Executive Power of the United States," Sekulow wrote.
    "The President cannot effectively discharge those duties if any and every prosecutor in this country may target him with criminal process," he said, adding that the need for "temporary presidential immunity is 'particularly acute' when it comes to state and local prosecutors."
    "The President must be allowed to execute his official functions without fear that a State or locality will use criminal process to register their dissatisfaction with his performance," Sekulow said
    "The remedy for wrongdoing by the President is impeachment, not criminal prosecution," he said.
    Lawyers for the House and Vance will respond to the briefs in the coming weeks. The court has yet to reveal the exact date of oral arguments, but they are expected sometime in March.

    NATIONAL DEBT INCREASED BY $3 TRILLION DURING DONALD TRUMP'S THREE YEARS AS PRESIDENT
    N
    early four years after then-presidential candidate Donald Trump said he would eliminate the federal debt in eight years, the deficit has since risen by more than 16 percent under his presidency.

    On Tuesday, attorney George Conway, a frequent Trump critic and husband of White House Special Counsel Kellyanne Conway, pointed out that three years into Trump's first term as president, the national debt increased by $3 trillion, bringing it to over $23 trillion now. Conway cited figures from the National Debt Tweets in his tweet.

    Whatever happened to the Tea Party or Republicans in general crying foul over the the mounting National debt under President Obama?

    Most of the debt incurred under the Obama Presidency was due to national financial emergencies precipitated at the end of Republican President Bush's time in office like the financial crisis caused by bad lending practises in the sub prime mortgage market or the auto bailout. President Obama actually managed to reduce the national debt.

    President Trump has proven to be financially reckless with the national economy by causing the debt to soar with no end in sight.

    Paraphrasing is one thing. Deliberate fabrication like Schiff did is totally not paraphrasing.

    Four responses diverting attention away from the rapidly spiraling out of control national debt. The national financial deficit exceeds $1 trillion USD per year now.

    A trillion is 1,000 billion dollars per year that the USA spends more than it takes in in revenues.

    1,000 billion dollars is 1 million x 1 million dollars of debt piling up every year.

    The USA truly did elect the "king of debt" that will take the US population many decades and generations of citizens to pay down.
