Supreme Court clears way for Trump tax records to be sent to Congress by IRS
[www.cnbc.com]

The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a bid by former President Donald Trump to prevent Congress from obtaining his federal income tax returns and those of related business entities from the IRS.

The decision sets the stage for the Democrat-controlled House Ways and Means Committee to obtain Trump’s tax returns in the weeks before Republicans take majority control of the House.

GOP lawmakers have vowed to end the committee’s quest to obtain the records and a related probe into how the Internal Revenue Service audits the tax returns of sitting presidents.

The order Tuesday by the Supreme Court, which noted no dissent from any justice, comes more than three months after a three-judge panel of the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., ruled that the Ways and Means Committee had the right to obtain Trump’s tax returns.

The entire appeals court on Oct. 27 denied Trump’s request to have the full lineup of the judges on that court rehear his appeal.

Trump then asked the Supreme Court on Oct. 31 to block the committee from obtaining his tax returns.

In that filing, Trump’s lawyers wrote, “This case raises important questions about the separation of powers that will affect every future President.”

The brief response Tuesday from the Supreme Court rejected Trump’s request to stay the lower court rulings that had cleared the way for the committee to get his returns.

Good. The Democrat-controlled House Committee will need to act fast before Republicans take over.

I heard that the records will not come from Trump himself, but from his accounting firm which should be quicker.

It was one of the guests on a news channel - I don't think this is correct.

Aren't they coming directly from the IRS?

that is my understanding. So they may already be in the House's possession.

Can they pass any potential investigation off to a Senate committee?

I suspect that if the House committee gets the records on December 27 then we will be hearing details on December 29.

And hold impeachment hearings for Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, to be held at the border.

They can't stop nothin'. The Justice department does investigations 24/7. The J6 Committee will hand over every bit of their findings (evidence) before the cosplay house take charge. That was their plan from the beginning. The Republicans can investigate their booties off and it will all dead end. Candy Crush.

Also, no need for the House committee to rush because the Senate Finance committee has exactly the same authority to obtain tax returns. emoticon-tv-015

The house can impeach everyone and everything they want, the Senate will never convict.

it is just a show at this point.

“Why would anybody be surprised that the Supreme Court has ruled against me, they always do!” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “It is unprecedented to be handing over Tax Returns, & it creates terrible precedent for future Presidents. Has Joe Biden paid taxes on all of the money he made illegally from Hunter & beyond.”

Donald Trump reported losses on his tax returns every year for a decade, including nearly $700 million in 2009 and $200 million in 2010, his longtime accountant testified Tuesday, confirming long-held suspicions about the former president’s tax practices.

Heh. Do you remember how outraged Trump and his mouthpieces were two years ago, when the NYT said exactly the same thing?

Quote

Judd Deere, a White House spokesman, in a statement to the newspaper called the story “fake news” and “yet another politically motivated hit piece full of inaccurate smears” appearing “before a presidential debate.”

… In a statement to NBC News, a Trump Organization lawyer, Alan Garten, claimed that the story was "riddled with gross inaccuracies”.

"Over the past decade the President has paid tens of millions of dollars in personal taxes to the federal government," Garten said.

Yeah. Not so much.

A gentle reminder that HIllary Clinton handed over 38 years of her taxes.

Trump thought he was appointing justices to the SCOTUS to be his toadies without realizing he was the toady of McConnell and the Heritage foundation. Realization must be setting in.

Trump was playing Candyland while the adults were playing chess.
