Retired Supreme Court Judge Says Trump Is Exercising Powers That Do Not Really Belong To Him

Retired Supreme Court Judge John Paul Stevens has accused President Donald Trump of exercising powers that do not really belong to him. The Retired Justice said this during an interview to The Wall Street Journal.

This latest remark comes in the backdrop of a court battle over Trump’s financial records. Judge Amit Mehra will be in the limelight as he oversees the first hearing in the standoff between The President and the Democrat-led Oversight Committee.

The committee had subpoenaed Mazars USA, Trump’s long standing accounting firm for several years of Donal Drump’s financial statements. The President has in turn sued the committee and Mazars to block the accounting firm from complying with the subpoena.

Answering to questions about the current political landscape, Stevens told The Wall Street Journal, “I think there are things we should be concerned about, there’s no doubt about that.”

“The President is exercising powers that do not really belong to him,” Stevens added. “I mean, he has to comply with subpoenas and things like that.”
