ALERT: Supreme Court Rules Against Trump

( – BREAKING NOW: The United States Supreme Court, without any dissent, ruled against former President Donald Trump’s request that the court stop Congress from getting his tax returns.

As CNBC notes in a piece headlined “Supreme Court clears way for Trump tax records to be sent to Congress by IRS“:

“The Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a bid by former President Donald Trump to prevent Congress from obtaining his federal income tax returns and those of related business entities from the IRS.

“The decision sets the stage for the Democrat-controlled House Ways and Means Committee to obtain Trump’s tax returns in the weeks before Republicans take majority control of the House.

“GOP lawmakers have vowed to end the committee’s quest to obtain the records and a related probe into how the Internal Revenue Service audits the tax returns of sitting presidents.

“The order Tuesday by the Supreme Court, which noted no dissent from any justice, comes more than three months after a three-judge panel of the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., ruled that the Ways and Means Committee had the right to obtain Trump’s tax returns.” [emphasis added]
