Trump Loses Appeals Court Battle Setting Up Supreme Court Fight

President Trump has been denied in his attempt to block New York City prosecutor Cyrus Vance Jr.’s attempt to access his tax returns by a federal appeals court.

This loss sets up a potential Supreme Court fight over the matter.

According to CNBC:

A federal appeals court on Wednesday rejected President Donald Trump’s effort to block enforcement of a grand jury subpoena demanding his income tax returns from his accountants.

But the Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit suspended enforcement of that subpoena by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., giving Trump time to ask the Supreme Court, for the second time, to step into the case and block it permanently.

This is the second time that appeals court has rejected Trump’s request to deny Vance access to his tax returns by upholding a lower federal court ruling.

Trump lost an earlier appeal of a similar ruling when he took the case to the Supreme Court, which this summer said that he did not have a right to prevent his accounting firm Mazars USA from complying with the subpoena just because he is president.

It is unclear when the case could be heard, but it is possible that it will be one of the first cases heard by Amy Coney Barrett should she be confirmed.

You should know better than to ask that stupid question given the ILLEGAL leak of Trump’s tax returns to the nyt, which had no choice but to admit Trump had DONE NOTHING WRONG.
Vance is another demonKKKrat (like you) who wants Trump’s taxes as a tool to start another fishing expedition and create some new FALSE ALLEGATIONS.

The Constitution says the POTUS must be a specific age and be born in the USA. It further says no other test will be required. That includes tax records.

As Joseph Goebbels said, “if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.” In America, the government is not allowed to sift through a citizen’s private affairs unless specifically charged with a crime and and the information sought is specified in detail.

I believe that congress is the only one who could request his taxes and they have to have a good reason to do so.

The word legally jumps at you. Why is he so adamant against America seeing his tax returns. Did he receive money from ominous sources, the 400 million debts he has to pay, who loaned him the money. Are the lenders writing the off? What deductions/ exemptions did he report that may not be legal. In Melania’s language he is PRIFUKNJENA

What’s happened in America when someone’s tax information becomes fake headline news? Does this not go against all Privacy Acts? Or has the left rewrote the Laws like they’re trying to do the Constitution??

Those tax returns have not had any action by the IRS against Trump. So, why is a NY clown interested? Perhaps he wants to try and match his federal payments to the states but even I know state and federal taxes are not the same in any category except maybe his name. I am sure this is a fishing route but how about NY wants to bump heads with the IRS on their failure to find anything wrong. It would be comical except the taxpayer foots the bills.

Because they just hate Trump. No one should be allowed to access anyone’s taxes. The Federal Government must limit the powers of these dumb ass judges, they should not have the kind of power that they are wielding. Some judge in podunk Wisconsin stops the world from going around. There also needs to be major reform to the broadcast media. It is hard to tell who is the worst, but NBC and it’s cast of liar ranks right up there with the best or I should say the worst of them. NBC is trying to control the election process and so far they are doing it. The morning and evening news is so slanted towards the Democrats that if every Republican doesn’t get out and vote, things could go terribly bad and America will be plunged into a situation we haven’t seen since the Civil war.When you news media doesn’t mind lying, that is the beginning of the end.

Actually, you are probably correct. As Trump’s Federal Taxes are audited regularly and as the Feds find no cause, the State has little to stand upon in arguing that they have need of the taxes for a Grand Jury. The real issue is that the Grand Jury is NOT a bunch of accountants and legal professionals. There is NO way that a Grand Jury could conclude that there is enough evidence of anything to bring any charge.

It would be a closed door argument without defense argument and the jury would be bamboozled.
The State has a normal method and apparently the state itself sees nothing wrong. Therefore this is a political event.

Now when any investigator is denied information which no one else could refuse to submit, just because they are PRESIDENT, does not wash with the general public, who would have to produce the requested information on demand. This has been made political when in no way it is, you have o have probable cause to open an investigation into anyone and that probable cause must be backed up with some provable information. That is exactly why there has been no investigation into anyone Trump has requested an investigation including Biden’s Son, the dismissed FBI person’s, and including Obama and Clinton. Now to even get permission from a judge to authorize an investigation a DA has to prove probable cause with factual proven facts.

Hey Robert, if you think there is no ‘probable cause’ to investigate Hillary, Hunter and Obama for their misdeeds, you’ve apparently lost oxygen to the few brain cells you started with due to your head being so far up your a$$.

For all those who thinks it is cool to get Trump’s tax returns. Why not step up & show yours to the world?? No bodys business what’s on yours? It is NO ONEs business what is on his. If there was something wrong the government would have found it when they audited him long ago. Just because he is wealthy is NOT a reason. He is more than likely the cleanest, most honest person in Washington D.C. Not everyone is crooked or dishonest like DEMONcrats.

Tax records… Well, If I were President Trump, I would show them the tax returns from 2019… He didn’t take one dime to work like a machine for the people/ Americans. How about someone put out a poll: Would you work 18 – 20 hours a day, 11 months a year for ZERO money??? Our President has and continues to do… Jealously and ignorance go hand in hand.

Trump should ask for PROTECTION from public release and from the Supreme Court and ask for a 100M bond from the jurisdiction. If the taxes are released by anyone after he delivers them then the bond is forfeit.

If it is NOT a Constitutional law, nor any law or rule or regulation, what right does anybody have to demand Trump’s tax record? I think all Congress people should disclose their taxes by law, a new law made to do this so it will catch people like Nancy Pelosi, Adam Shiff and many others for their money crimes and believe me, they all are guilty of money laundering and taking money from small third world countries. This is a fact, an absolute fact!

His tax returns are no ones business. There is no legal reason or requirement for him to reveal his tax returns.
