Trump loses appeal to stop House subpoena of financial records

A federal appeals court in Washington has ruled against President Trump, saying his financial records must be turned over to the House of Representatives. The Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said Friday that Democratic lawmakers should get the documents they have subpoenaed from Mazars USA. Trump’s legal team have said they are ’reviewing options’.

It's nice that the government can choose to make private tax returns public depending on your politics. It'd be interesting if Trump could claim discrimination based on political beliefs.

It's not over yet, Trump will fight it to the SCOTUS. I'm sure nothing dirty will be in his tax returns, nobody does that.

The House has no right to do that and these damn leftist judges are getting on my nerves. They twist and mangle the Constitution to their whims. It's disgusting.

"The committee said it needed the records to determine if Trump (...) complied with laws requiring disclosure of his assets, and to assess whether those laws need to be changed." If he didn't comply they'll use that against him, if he did they'll tailor new laws to damage him.

If SCOTUS rules he must release them, then the same must apply to Congress.

I still don’t understand why I need to know what his returns say. Especially after years of being ex investigation that has led to nothing

And once again the activist judges will be slapped down by the SCOTUS. THe leftist can not stand that Trump is following the law. You do not have to give up your tax records to be in politics. Corrupt people divulge their tax records to pretend they are "by the book". Then they get their son Hunter (with no energy industry experience) a cush job in energy after Hunter gets kicked out of the navy for cocaine abuse. I have been seeing it for 45 years "I do not have to release my taxes but here they are see I am clean". Trump is taking away their tool for corruption.
