The Supreme Court blocked Donald Trump’s attempt to stop the release of his tax returns to the House Ways and Means Committee.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered the handover of former President Donald Trump’s tax returns to the House Ways and Means Committee.
Last month, Chief Justice John Roberts granted a stay, temporarily blocking the former president from having to turn over his tax records to Democrats on the committee.
But on Tuesday, Roberts formally denied the request.
“The application for stay of the mandate presented to The Chief Justice and by him referred to the Court is denied,” the order states. “The order heretofore entered by The Chief Justice is vacated.”
Despite the loss, even MSNBC is admitting the truth.
Hayes Brown wrote an op-ed explaining how it is “a hollow victory for Democrats.”
Brown states that Democrats only have weeks to look through the documents and find out what should be released to the public.
But it’s a hollow victory for Democrats, who will hand over control of the House to Republicans in January. It’s not clear how quickly the IRS will turn over the requested documents to the Ways and Means Committee. After that, there’s only weeks left to parse through the findings and determine what portions — if any — deserve being released to the public.
There’s still a narrow window for Ways and Means to actually draft a report on the IRS’s presidential audits and vote to release it to the public, along with key findings from Trump’s filings. But once it closes, that’s likely the ball game. Because while the Democratic-controlled Senate could still possibly take over the investigation, it’s not clear whether it will do so, given the deference to Neal’s efforts that Senate Finance Committee Chair Ron Wyden, D-Ore., has showed.
And it wouldn’t shock me to see Trump use the technically new request to begin the litigation process all over, resetting the clock and wasting everyone’s time — again.
Did Trump actually win?
