Trump Loses Bid to Shield Tax Returns From Congress…Federal Judge Nominated By Trump Has Dismissed The Case

Sharing is Caring!

Former President Donald Trump lost his bid to shield his tax returns from the House Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday, after a federal judge dismissed the case.

The ruling from U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden may still be appealed, but it marks a significant win for Democrats in more than two years of attempts to obtain Mr. Trump’s tax returns. It would take separate actions by the Ways and Means Committee to make any of the documents public.

“Even if the former President is right on the facts, he is wrong on the law,” the judge, who was nominated by Mr. Trump, wrote in a 45-page ruling. “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.”
An attorney for Mr. Trump didn’t respond immediately to a request for comment.
