Judge Rules on Whether NY Can Give Trump’s Tax Returns to Congress


A federal judge blocked New York State from turning over President Donald Trump’s tax returns to Congress Thursday.

The order from Judge Carl Nichols, a Trump appointee, came in agreement to a proposal from the state that would allow it to challenge Nichols’ jurisdiction over the issue, Politico reported Thursday.

The Washington D.C. judge agreed to listen to a motion to move the case to New York but the documents cannot be released under a new New York law while the case is pending.

Trump is seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.) from taking advantage of the New York law.

Neal, who is separately suing Trump for his federal returns, has not shown much interest in using the law for fear it could undermine his own suit. Trump is concerned though that Neal could change his mind and obtain his filings without warning.

We are being overrun by foreigners breaking in, Iran and North Korea are threatening us, China is interfering in our elections, but this is what Democrats care about — Trump’s tax returns. They have gone mad.

  • The U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in D.C., in Epic v. I.R.S. had already ruled in December, 2018 that a taxpayer,including President Trump, specifically must give permission to the I.R.S. before it can divulge them to anyone, unless such disclosure falls under specific limited exceptions in the law. The Secretary of the Treasury cannot be forced to release tax records since it is in the discretion of the Secretary to ask or not to ask the Joint Committee on Taxation to authorize their release pursuant to said legal exceptions. SOT Munchen had already determined to decline doing so regarding President Trump’s federal tax returns.

  • “The order from Judge Carl Nichols, a Trump appointee, came in agreement to a proposal from the state that would allow it to challenge Nichols’ jurisdiction over the issue”

    Could somebody please tell us how some federal judge in Hawaii, Washington State or anywhere else has jurisdiction over the entire United States by ruling an policy or executive order issued by President Trump is unconstitutional?

  • DemoCRAPS are proving daily they are incapable for being Leaders for America – Instead They are Nothing but Its Detractors!

  • LOL! Thanks to Obama’s hack judges every report needs to indicate whether any judge wan an Obama or a Trump appointee. If the Leftist shills would simply apply the law we wouldn’t have this issue at all.

  • The Left love the Chinese.
    Barack Obama took 100 million from the Chinese for his election campaign. Nothing was ever said about the foreign microtransactions made by credit card after the filter was removed.

    They love Russia.
    Hillary gave 10 million to Russia and a chance to Interfere in and with our elections.

    Assorted traitors lined up like eager beavers to get their pieces of rat cheese reward…

    You know their names. Clapper. Brennan. Strzok. Page. Wray. Mueller. And numerous others, but since the fish rots from the top, you know his name–Obama…

    I think any politician whose net worth soars in office should be investigated intensively…
    If they look at Trump, then they get to open them all… Start the Inquisition for every one of them and let the cards fall where they may…

  • Pin headed demorat congress are pizzing the population off so bad with their immature antics that they are handing the presidency to Trump in 2020.

  • Trump is a resident of Washington, D.C. and as the plaintiff has filed in the appropriate federal jurisdiction. The state of NY isn’t getting the decision they desire and so the motion for a venue change is in their interest.

  • Many politicians somehow become very rich once they enter the political arena – examples are Clinton and Obama. Meanwhile Trump went into politics with the expectation of resultant financial harm. Americans should understand and respect the difference.

  • Yes, they have gone mad . Thanks for pointing out that China is the one involved with election interference not Russia .
