Trump Begs Supreme Court To Block Release Of His Tax Records, The Ones He Really Doesn’t Want Anyone To See
In a last-ditch attempt to prevent Congress from seeing the details of his murky business finances, Donald Trump on Monday asked the Supreme Court to block the release of his tax returns by the Internal Revenue Service after a federal appeals court cleared the way last week for the returns to be delivered to the House Ways and Means Committee in the coming days.
The former president, who has used every means possible to keep his federal tax records secret, sees the conservative-led court as his final tool to prevent the House from obtaining his tax returns after pursuing them in different avenues for years.
“No Congress has ever wielded its legislative powers to demand a President’s tax returns,” Trump argued to the Supreme Court, as he warned of the “far-reaching implications” implications of the DC Circuit’s ruling, CNN reported.
In his filing, Trump argues that the way lower courts approached the House request ran afoul of the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Mazars case, concerning a subpoena that the House issued Trump’s accounting firm for his tax information.
