SCOTUS rules against Trump’s bid to conceal financial records from prosecutor

The Supreme Court voted 7-2 against President Trump in a case over whether he could shield his tax records from the Manhattan DA. ’In our judicial system, ’the public has a right to every man’s evidence’’, Justice Roberts wrote adding that ’’every man’ has included the President of the United States’. The court, however, rejected a parallel effort by Democrats in the House of Representatives.

Am I the only one who doesn’t care about presidential candidates tax returns? Or their health? Trumps taxes are none of democrats business and Bernie/Biden’s health is none of the republicans.

Dangerous precedent being set here for everyone in America. This means that the government can 'investigate' and demand material evidence from any individual without having to even state what crime an individual is suspected of having committed. By federal law, before this decision, law enforcement can not investigate in search of a crime, an individual or group must be suspected of a crime with evidence BEFORE an investigation is launched. The DA has said they are investigating 'hush money payments' during 2016; what is the crime and where is the evidence? They did this to Trump once already, during the Russia 'investigation'. We are witnessing the steady erosion of the criminal justice system because half the population has slipped deep into TDS. Btw, I could care less about Trump's tax returns, I personally think he should have just released them a long time ago.

Quite right, no man is above the law! They should be extra scrutinised because of the concealment effort.
