Representative Jim Jordan is a big supporter of President Trump stated that the Supreme Court’s recent decisions regarding the President’s tax returns terrify him.
According to Town Hall:
Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) called the Supreme Court’s first 7-2 decision on Thursday on President Trump’s tax returns and presidential immunity “terrifying.” The court ruled that “no citizen is above the common duty to release evidence,” deciding that the president does not have absolute immunity from grand jury subpoenas. So, they granted Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance his wish to see eight years of Trump’s tax returns. The court deferred on a second case regarding whether Congress can view his returns.
This is a tremendous victory for our nation’s system of justice and its founding principle that no one – not even a president – is above the law. https://t.co/jVm15aph7s

But Rep. Jordan didn’t see it as a “victory.”
“Americans are terrified of being audited by the IRS,” the congressman reacted on Fox News.
“When you think about the average American who is terrified of being audited by the IRS,” Jordan noted, “if Congress has the ability to look at Trump’s tax returns and everything else. You’re talking about Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters auditing the president, I mean that’s a terrifying thing based on what we’ve seen them do over the last four years.”
Jordan noted how the Obama administration weaponized the IRS against conservative groups.
