Democrats claim victory as Trump gets battered in court

<snip>
President Trump took a beating in federal court last week, losing a pair of lawsuits aimed at hindering House Democrats' investigations into him and his administration.

The decisions indicated that Trump will ultimately lose the fights: Both judges in the subpoena cases issued their rulings swiftly and decisively, underscoring the weakness of Trump's legal arguments.

The lawsuits were likely intended as Trump's attempt to delay Congress from being able to obtain the documents, taking advantage of the slow pace of the court system while keeping an eye on getting the cases up to the Supreme Court.

But the court victories are providing Democrats with momentum as they accelerate their Trump investigations - and providing fodder for party leaders to argue impeachment proceedings aren't necessary as they make legal headways.

House Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), whose subpoena for Trump's financial records from the accounting firm Mazars was upheld in D.C. court, said that the judge had found Democrats' arguments "a slam dunk."

2. There is no victory so long as Trump remains in power.

No Mission Accomplished.
