Trump Asks SCOTUS to Block Tax Record Request

President Trump has asked the United States Supreme Court to shield his tax records from investigators.

According to The Hill:

President Trump on Tuesday filed an emergency request to the Supreme Court asking the justices to shield his tax records from a New York grand jury subpoena.

The filing from Trump’s personal attorneys marks the second time the president has asked the court to block Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance (D) from obtaining eight years of his tax records.

In July, the justices voted 7-2 to reject Trump’s argument that presidents have sweeping immunity from the criminal process, but said Trump could mount other legal objections in lower court proceedings.

Since then, New York-based federal district and appellate courts have roundly rejected Trump’s additional assertions that the subpoena should be blocked because it is overly broad and was issued in bad faith and designed to harass the president.

Trump will file a formal appeal but this asks for temporary relief until that can happen.

I do not understand the DemonRats and the OBSESSION with POTUS’ tax records??? NO NORMAL persons cares!! I hope that POTUS took every deduction there is! TAXATION = THEFT!!

What AMERICANS DO want to see is Congresses BANK STATEMENTS for the time they have been in Office. AMERICANS would like to know how it is that members of Congress go in to Office with ‘nothing’ and then turn into MILLIONAIRES!!

What’s being done to harass this President is criminal and despicable. If congress criminals don’t put a stop to this, then force every one of them to do the same they are demanding of Trump. Let’s see how fast the criminals put an end to this harassment.
