Judge Dismisses Trump Case to Block Congress from Taxes

Donald Trump just took one on the chin.

On Tuesday, a federal judge rejected Trump’s case to block Congress from obtaining his tax records.

Judge Trevor McFadden, a Trump appointee, dismissed the case outright, claiming Supreme Court precedent.

Staggering Blow

If Trump was going to get a favorable decision, he could not have asked for a better judge.

In dismissing the case, Judge McFadden stated, “Even if the former President is right on the facts, he is wrong on the law.

“A long line of Supreme Court cases requires great deference to facially valid congressional inquiries.

“Even the special solicitude accorded former Presidents does not alter the outcome.

“The Court will therefore dismiss this case.”

The case got started when Trump refused to release his tax returns before the election.

This was tradition, but it is not required by any candidate.

Congress then went on a witch hunt for Trump’s tax returns hoping that it would find something that it could latch onto, but they had no actual case.

I am no legal expert, but I would love to know the Supreme Court precedents to which McFadden is referencing when Congress can do something such as this without actual cause.

The danger for Trump here is that Schiff and company have proven time again that they love to leak information, so now it is only a matter of time before Trump’s tax returns are blasted all over the internet.

McFadden actually touched on that subject in his ruling, stating, “If Chairman Neal’s true interest in the former President’s tax returns is indeed to better understand the Presidential Audit Program, he will doubtless be able to accomplish this objective without publishing the returns.”

Democrats celebrated the decision, with Chairman Neal leading the way.

He stated, “This ruling is no surprise; the law is clearly on the Committee’s side.

“I am pleased that we’re now one step closer to being able to conduct more thorough oversight of the IRS’s mandatory presidential audit program.”

This is not about oversight of the presidential audit program and we all know it.

So, who wants to take the over/under on how long it will be before the tax returns are leaked to the media?

Do you think Congress is entitled to Trump’s tax returns without cause?

  1. I’ve made $84,000 so far this year working online and I’m a full time student. I’m using an online business opportunity I heard about and I’ve made such great money. MMn It’s really user friendly and I’m just so happy that I found out about it. The potential with this is endless.
    Here’s what I do…>>>>> http://www.EarnApp3.com

  2. The Dems will do anything to justify their tenure. Their tenure will not survive. Their lust for power will ensure their demise.

  3. I want to see EVERY MEMBER OF CONGRESS disclose their tax information! This whole charade is pathetic.

    1. Why just his tax info? Why not Biden’s and Pelosi’s info? It doesn’t make sense. Either everyone In Congress should disclose their tax info or no one should. I would love to see how Biden covered up his money from China.

    2. If the president’s tax records are required to be made public, then every elected member of congress should be made public as well!

      1. Where thisdecision is against Trump, now a private citizen, this opens the door for all citizens to be “reviewed”, without cause by anyone other than the IRS to look for a crime, which they would undoubtly find something to warrant a court complaint. IMO.

  4. It’s all a political move to discredit Trump. The Dems will wordsmith all the information to their own advantage and broadcast nationally. We need to request all their tax records and do the same to them. What’s good for one is good for all. Only to request one persons records seems unconstitutional to me. Right to privacy !

  5. WOW! When is this witch hunt going to end? I hope President Trump has a plan to shut the Democrat’s up! I say they all should have to do the same. Take it to the SCOTUS!

  6. Another demorat witch hunt. They tried to impeach him based on lies and fraud. That failed. They tried to accuse him of causing the Jan 6th fiasco. That is failing. Now they are going to try to find something in his tax returns to arrest him for. No doubt they will try to twist his returns to make it look like he has somehow cheated the government and country. Since President Trump only accepted one dollar per year as his presidential salary there is only one way they can do that. That is by doing what they have lots of experience at, lies, cheating and fraud. Clearly there is something wrong when one political party can repeatedly do this year after year and nothing happens to stop or punish them. The really sad part is that all this is being done against a man who plainly acted for the good of the country as a whole.

    1. I understand the IRS can only require the last three years on a persons taxes, so, where Trump was president for 4 of the last 5 years, his returns should be exempt from looking beyond the last three years,,, anyone?

  7. It just sounds like more of the witch hunt the democrats have been pushing for the last 4 years

  8. Joe Biden is half a million behind now
    Joe cheats the government on both ends ! Leeching and cheating !
    This scourge proclaim to be Catholic but just guessing Secret Muslim !
    I suspect he did it for Barry .
    Barry and Hillary DEEP STATE !!!
    Brennan Clapper Comey, Mueller .
    All Democrats stooges !

  9. Regardless of the Supreme Court precedent, and whether or not the decision can be appealed, the Democrats will never be satisfied until they bury Trump one way or another!

  10. Hello I have to laugh you have the old New Jersey Beached Whale trying to be relevant LOL. He missed his chance he could have ran against Barry and maybe he could have won. These people like to blame trump who knows for sure, Christie could have been the one spreading covid around. Hello Christie thump thump thump here comes President Trump.

  11. I believe in my opinion that if they now can go after Trump’s tax returns after he is a private citizen, and in addition, there is nowhere in the constitution or in congress, where it says the president must provide congress with his tax returns, then Judge McFadden is wrong in his decision, and I believe since he as made this ruling, that the Republicans when they take over in 2022 should demand President Obama and President Biden’s tax records, and they should dive deeply into Hunter Biden’s laptop and the dealings he had with the Ukraine and China. This decision is an absolute joke, and if Congress leaks any of the tax records of President Trump to the media, then I think there should be a complete investigation of Congress and all of those who are guilty should be prosecuted and removed from Congress.

  12. What is this world coming to? NOTE!! WE ARE IN THE DOWNFALL OF OUR COUNTRY AND ALL PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IS THE “TRUMP ERA”….GET OVER IT!! We are now in the BIDEN/HARRIS COMEDIC RULE OF A COUNTRY”…NEITHER KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE DOING…AND IF THE DO…THEY ARE NOT ‘AMERICANS!
    I said it before, and I will say it again and again…Lord. forgive them for they know not what they do!

GOP CHAIR TWEETS

This past weekend, pro-life centers were attacked in Virginia, Oregon, and Colorado.

Democrat leaders told activists to “armor up” for “war,” and radicals listened.

Remember when Biden promised he would “transform” the economy? He inherited a robust recovery and now we are on the brink of recession.

Per a new CBS poll, 84% of Americans have been impacted by the #BidenGasHike and 90% by food prices.

71% disapprove of Biden’s handling of inflation.
