Washington - The attorneys general of the District of Columbia and Maryland say they’re moving forward with subpoenas for records in their case accusing President Donald Trump of profiting off the presidency.

Subpoenas are expected to be sent out within hours of Monday’s order from U.S. District Court Judge Peter J. Messitte approving the legal discovery schedule. Such information would likely provide the first clear picture of the finances of Trump’s Washington, D.C., hotel.

Trump’s Justice Department lawyers filed a notice to the court on Friday that appeared to challenge the Maryland judge’s decision to allow the case to move forward. The Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Honey, you’ve been waiting for 2 years to see something go against Trump. Keep holding your breath. He’s not going anywhere. Most Americans are smart enough to see the amazing gains he’s made in our economy and in so many other areas, and he’ll be easily re-elected. Poor, poor crazy hater you are.

You really don't know what you're talking about. Mueller has zilch on Trump. No memos are coming out any time soon. There are NO impeachable offenses, Trump will fight back, and declassify the secret papers that show collusion - but by Hillary and Obama.

You will be busting another blood vessel soon...

When Trump leaves office, he will open a retail establishment selling Trump Cheeseburgers with two scoops of ice cream contained in the mix.
