The Supreme Court just handed House Democrats a huge loss that is effectively the final nail in their attempt to get Trump’s taxes before the election.
Trump has been fighting the Democrats for years on multiple fronts and has drawn a line in the sand over his finances.
Trump believes and most would agree with him that this is political and the Dems plan on leaking any damaging information even if they have to take it out of context.
The Democrats deny these charges but take a look at what happened before the Mueller investigation. The GOP house led its own investigation into Trump Russia.
Someone, possibly an Adam Schiff staffer, selectively leaked information to make Trump look bad and create a media scandal.
It worked and when the full quotes were later released that showed the leaks innocent it was barely covered by the media. Scandal, even fake scandal sells. Truth, not so much.
From The Hill:
The Supreme Court on Monday denied a request by House Democrats to accelerate the timeline of remaining court battles over congressional subpoenas for President Trump’s tax returns.
The bid by lawmakers came in response to the court’s landmark 7-2 ruling earlier this month to shield a trove of Trump’s financial records from several Democratic-led House committees and return the dispute to lower courts for further litigation.
Under regular Supreme Court procedure, the court’s ruling would not reach the lower courts until Aug. 2, a delay Democrats sought to avoid by asking the justices to expedite the process.
But the conservative-majority court rejected that request Monday in an unsigned order. Justice Sonia Sotomayor, one of the more liberal justices, said she would have granted it.
