IMPORTANT: The New York judge who dismissed Trump's tax return suit also took a huge swing at the DOJ memos that say a sitting president can't be indicted. He says the legal weigh given to these OLC opinions is "not warranted." >>>>>
Rather, the judge suggests there is a better balance between protecting the president's interests and ensuring justice >>>
And the judge also argues that the DOJ memos describing the horrors of a presidential indictment were conjured out of thin air rather than out of legitimate factual concerns.
And the judge presents a hypothetical that would *support* the indictment a sitting president: preventing criminal associates from going free or himself from escaping justice due to a statute of limitations.
NEW: A federal judge just lodged the most significant rejection ever made to the DOJ memos saying a sitting president can't be indicted -- the centerpiece of Trump's legal strategy. The details: politico.com/news/2019/10/0…
The judge's order has been STAYED by the Appeals Court and will be scheduled for consideration soon. politico.com/news/2019/10/0…
