    Trump asks Supreme Court to shield financial records from House Democrats

    Trump asks Supreme Court to shield financial records from House Democrats | TheHill

    President Trump has asked the Supreme Court to shield his financial records from the Democratic-led House Oversight and Reform Committee, in the latest case to bring questions over separation of powers to the justices.

    The case marks the second time Trump has appealed to the high court to prevent the disclosure of financial documents and sets the stage for a potentially groundbreaking ruling on the extent of congressional oversight authority and presidential power.
    ===============================================
    The second time? Looks like he has something he wants to keep hidden from the Democrats.

    I'm quite sure Trump has a lot to hide, but after the way they botched the impeachment stuff, I kinda doubt there is gonna be much ground here

    If the Republicans take the house, they will be impeaching Nancy Pelosi. Do you want their tax records public?

    Trump is not a private citizen. Transparency comes with the job.

    I have a couple really simple questions.

    1) Trump has been a lawful Tax Filing citizen. I am 100% sure he has filed his taxes to the IRS every year during his legal life, as if he did NOT we would know about it by now.

    2) If Trump has done illegal business, the IRS and the FBI have his Taxes they would have been able to find and link his Taxes to criminal acts by now.

    3) I AM 100% sure he has been audited at least once in his life, the same as I guarantee Steve Jobs, Larry Ellison, Bill Gates have all been Audited. THEY ALL have an Army of accountants to keep their Taxes in order. 2 things in life you cant avoid Death and Taxes.... IF BY NOW the IRS has NOT sent Federal charges over to the FBI after ALL these years..... What crime do you think he committed by holding his taxes.... Seriously What do you think the Dems would find that the IRS has NOT had in their possession for 40+ years?



    Trump is TROLLing on his taxes. He is going through the legal motions to resist an unlawful attempt to circumvent his legal rights. thats all nothing out of the ordinary........Just that Dems what to check his PL statements and Schedule C's so they can say he was using false deductions or falsifying records based on the smallest of claims.

    Im sure people have written off a round of golf as a promotion rather than entertainment, Im sure people have written of Business equipment as golf clubs and tennis rackets. This is the stupid BS that Dems are trying to look for... NOT $10million from Russian in the form of houses and cars.... because the IRS Would have SEEN it by now....FFS ....

    Re: Trump asks Supreme Court to shield financial records from House Democrats

    It must have cost Trump millions of dollars up to now paying lawyers to fight the release of his returns, so we could all assume there's some things in there that would be devastatingly damaging. I don't think that even Hannity, Carlson and Ingraham could figure out ways to get him out of the jams that the release of his tax returns would embroil him in. I mean it's bad, really bad.

    Trump's lawyers have been to the Supreme Court two days in a row to block the demand for his returns. A lower court has already ruled in favor of the SDNY getting their hands on it and Trump's lawyers want that rule overturned. They're asking the Supreme Court to reverse every lower court judgement and I'm not sure the Supreme Court will do that and if they do actually overturn previous federal rulings, it's pretty much a given that Trump's two Supreme Court appointments are working for Trump, not the United States.

    I only counted 1 question - I'm sure he's guilty of at least small crimes on his taxes, but that's all they need to go after him(period) Reason enough in my mind to protect the documents considering Pelosi's embarrassing speech today(period)

    I suspect, based on character and my opinion, that there are bigger crimes there, but they will never be proven by the idjits in congress making a mockery of the impeachment process right now, so I'm okay with letting IRS go after him

    Are you saying the IRS is incompetent?


    If so, perhaps it's time we do something about them.
