Day 995

1/ Trump lost his appeal to stop a subpoena by House investigators requiring him to turn over his tax documents to investigators. The 2-1 ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals in D.C. upheld a lower court ruling that required Trump's longtime accountant Mazars USA to turn over eight years of Trump's personal tax returns. The judges ruled that the courts "lack the power to invalidate a duly authorized congressional subpoena merely because it might have been 'better [if]…the full House' had specifically authorized or issued it." Courts, the ruling continues, don't get a say in how each chamber conducts itself unless Congress "adopts a rule that offends the Constitution." The case is the first major dispute between Trump and the House to have reached the appeals court level – one level below the Supreme Court.

Thanks Joe @jamditis for taking the helm and getting out all the headlines and summaries for the WTFJHTEers. You did GREAT :jack_o_lantern: :tada:


Aww, thanks so much! I genuinely don’t know how Matt’s made it this long.


Thank you, Matt, for your dedication as a tireless articulate, synthesizer and first responder to the unyielding incoming scuds from our pathetic administration and 45; a man whose name means “fart” in England and who has proved to be anything but silent, legions more foul and malignantly more dangerous to those who ADMIT they can smell.

Please support this blog financially, however small the amount as is mine. WTF depends upon our collective contributions to demonstrate our gratitude and keep it going.


Hevrin Khalef sought to unite Arabs, Christians, and Kurds in NE Syria.

Turkey just murdered her in cold blood, and initially tried to blame it on Syrian rebels.

The Ottoman Empire, of which Turkey was the center, GAVE us the word “genocide”, a result of its 1914–1923 campaign of murder against the Armenian people.

Turkey’s Kurdish Genocide is nothing new, sadly, and part of a long-term, extensive campaign.

Yeni Şafak is a conservative Turkish daily newspaper known for hardline support of president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Translation: Hevin Khalef, secretary general of the Party for the Future of Syria, a political extension of the terrorist organization PYD in Syria, was neutralized in a successful operation.
