Judge Dismisses Trump Suit to Block Congress From Obtaining Tax Records

White House [Public Domain]

On Tuesday, Washington, D.C. judge Trevor McFadden dismissed former President Trump’s lawsuit seeking to block Congressional Democrats from obtaining his personal tax records. The federal district judge appointed by Trump said that “facially valid” congressional inquiries should not be impeded during his opinion.

The Hill reports:

“A long line of Supreme Court cases requires great deference to facially valid congressional inquiries. Even the special solicitude accorded former Presidents does not alter the outcome,” McFadden wrote in a 45-page opinion. “The Court will therefore dismiss this case.”

While the ruling is a win for House Democrats, it could still be a while before they receive Trump’s tax returns.

McFadden stayed execution of his ruling for 14 days to allow the parties in the case to discuss next steps, and instructed the executive branch to not provide House Democrats with the tax returns during that time period.

If the parties in the case don’t reach an agreement on next steps within 14 days, Trump can seek relief from an appeals court.

So far, Trump has yet to comment on Judge McFadden’s decision.
