On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will help shape our understanding of some of this when it hears arguments involving efforts by Congress and a New York prosecutor to get access to Trump's tax returns, bank documents and bookkeeping records.

I do not believe that our corrupt Supreme Court will force Trump to reveal his tax returns.

Please....the SCROTUS is in the bag for Fat Nixon.

I predict yet another verdict in favor of the most transparent president ever. Like the sham that put W into office it will be proposed as to NOT be precedent too.

We already know what is in Donny's tax returns. He is not that rich, he has lots of debt, he has lots of bankruptcies, he has some money hidden overseas.

SCOTUS isn't going to show us Trumps taxes. But this brings up a good point. I'm constantly amazed at the folks who think getting rid of Trump is going to solve all of our problems, even as the Republicans have loaded the courts to their favor for decades to come.

My guess is that they will punt the matter and pretend its a political question.

That leaves Congress with only the power to throw people in jail by sending its own sergeant-at-arms.

I'm not sure anyone wants this situation because it means Congress can go nuts with enforcing subpoenas rather then letting impartial judges decide. On the other hand, it would move things along much more quickly without the exhaustive calendaring of court dates and appeals.

If DUMP loses this, he resigns in 45 hours. Pencerella becomes Supreme Leader. Brings in a palatable non-whore Repub as his VP, and then resigns, and the GOP sweetheart train rolls on.

"My guess is that they will punt the matter and pretend its a political question."

They cannot punt. This is the same question we already answered. The President is not above the law.

This is about the power of Congress to legislate and investigate Anne to do it's oversight of the executive branch. You take away the power of Congress to subpoena the president and you will cripple the ability of Congress to do its constitutional duty of oversight.

No man or woman is above the Law. That includes the President. That has not changed since Nixon was ordered to turn over the Tapes.

One of the President's main defenses of his corruption during impeachment hearings was that the proper thing to do was to take the president to court or impeach him. Well, we impeached him (big deal) and now we will see how the courts handle a corrupt president and much the supremes respect the legislative branch of our government.

I'm all for it, provided the Dems fight this hard for it no matter who is in office.

It hasn't been an issue for any president since Nixon, until Trump.

Rep. Eric Swalwell @RepSwalwell

Most maddening about the #SCOTUS #TrumpTaxReturns case is that @realDonaldTrump said five years ago he'd release his taxes. Why can't he " for once in his life " be a man of his word? Would have saved two years of litigation. Just keep your damn word.
