Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a video posted to Facebook that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is creating a fake crisis over President Donald Trump’s refusal to turn over tax returns and other financial records.
According to Fitton, it is inappropriate for Congress and other politicians to ask for the records, and completely reasonable of Trump to refuse. It doesn’t constitute a crisis for Trump not to comply with unreasonable requests.
Pelosi invoking a crisis is just a way for her to pressure Trump into giving Democrats what they want and to try to make him look bad for not capitulating. It’s another attempt to control the narrative and feed damaging talking points to the compliant leftist press.
Fitton also used terms like “lawless” to describe the quest to get Trump’s records and “sedition” to describe the attempts to impeach Trump based on his refusal to cooperate. He justified the term “coup” in regard to Democrats’ attempts to remove Trump from office because of the group nature of the efforts.
“We should all agree that the powers of government shouldn’t be used to abuse a citizen because of his political views,” Fitton finished.
