Trump continues to file appeals to stop from being forced to testify.

So far he has lost every appeal.

But also so far HE HAS NOT ACTUALLY TESTIFIED.

WHEN THE FUCK WILL THAT HAPPEN?

EVER?

Trump to appeal ruling that requires him to testify in New York investigation

Former President Donald Trump has filed papers in court as part of his ongoing effort to avoid testifying in an investigation of his business practices in New York.

The former president filed papers U.S. District Court in Albany in response to a ruling Friday by Judge Brenda K. Sannes, who dismissed Trump's effort to fight a subpoena issued by New York attorney general Letitia James, reported Insider.

The notice of appeal shows Trump plans to ask the federal appeals court to reverse the judge's decision.

James argued that her office has uncovered "substantial" evidence of financial wrongdoing and self-serving falsehoods in a decade's worth of Trump business filings.

And drag this shit out IN PERPETUITY.

And this is just for testifying under oath in a civil trial.

And yet there are those that think he'll be indicted?

Not by this justice system.

It is a travesty of a joke of a farce.

Some stays are routinely granted pending appeal, but this isn’t a typical case.

Not sure the feds have jurisdiction over a state matter.
