Supreme Court Temporarily Halts Order to Turn Over Trump’s Tax Returns to Congress

Breitbart – The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday temporarily blocked a ruling requiring an accounting firm, Mazars USA, to hand over President Donald Trump’s tax returns to Congress.

Chief Justice John Roberts’s order contains no hint about how the Supreme Court ultimately will resolve the dispute.

It follows a filing by the House earlier Monday in which the House agreed to a brief halt for the orderly filing of legal briefs, while opposing any lengthy delay. Those written arguments will allow the justices to decide whether they will jump into the tussle between Congress and the president.

Last week, Trump made an emergency appeal to ask the justices to block the enforcement of a subpoena issued by a House committee to Trump’s accountants. The House has until Thursday to respond, Roberts said.

The high court has a separate pending request from Trump to block a subpoena from a New York prosecutor for Trump’s tax returns.

The justices next meet in private on Friday and could discuss what to do with the House subpoena. Without some intervention by the high court, a ruling by the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., in favor of the House was set to take effect Wednesday.

In July, the House panel filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Treasury Department and the IRS in an effort to obtain the president’s tax returns. more

  2. Turn them over DJT. Then make an executive order forcing all of the senate and house members to turn over theirs.

    They want to play with the bull, they’ll get the horns.

  3. If they can make him turn over his tax returns, they can make us turn over our tax returns. That would throw out the concept of tax returns being confidential, which would make it a situation where we could refuse to file tax returns because the government has not lived up to its promise of keeping them confidential.

    Democrats, however, are too stupid to think that far in advance.

  4. The purpose of the IRS is to collect tax revenue. That is it.

    The Democrats have weaponized it and so demonstrate they are unfit to govern. I look forward to ACW2 where there will be no bag limits on traitors. If not civil war then I look forward to applying their new Rules of Engagement (ROE) to the damned Democrats with a VENGEANCE!

  5. What say we have a looky loo at O’commiethecocksucker, Clinton, Pelosi, Biden, Kerry, Schiff, and Schumer tax returns while we’re at it?

  6. Writs of attainder are unconstitutional. Open and shut.

    If a Supreme Court decision doesn’t come back 9-0 then the dissenters need to be hung.
