Supreme Court Clears Way For House Dems To Obtain Trump’s Taxes | Eastern North Carolina Now

    The Supreme Court paved the way on Tuesday for House Democrats to obtain former President Donald Trump's taxes, denying a request from Trump's legal team that he be permitted to withhold them from a congressional committee.

    The request was presented to Chief Justice John Roberts and did not contain any dissents. Roberts had earlier this month blocked the Ways and Means Committee from obtaining Trump's taxes while the Supreme Court considered the request.

    "The application for stay of the mandate presented to The Chief Justice and by him referred to the court is denied. The order heretofore entered by The Chief Justice is vacated," the brief order reads.

    The case has been making its way through the courts since 2019, when the Treasury Department refused to turn over Trump's taxes, arguing there was no valid purpose for the committee to obtain them. According to NBC News, Ways and Means Chair Rep. Richard Neal (D-MA) had argued that the committee was interested in the former president's taxes in order to decide whether tax law as it pertains to presidents should be changed. U.S. law allows the committee to obtain the taxes of any person.

    The committee now has a tight window to receive the tax information from the Treasury Department, as it's unlikely that House Republicans - who will be taking control in January - will allow the inquiry to continue.

    In a statement, Neal said the committee's ability to pursue Trump's taxes had been "affirmed" by the nation's highest court.

    "Since the Magna Carta, the principle of oversight has been upheld, and today is no different. This rises above politics, and the Committee will now conduct the oversight that we've sought for the last three and a half years," he said.

Was it a judicious ploy for Joe Biden's FBI to execute the unprecedented raid of President Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate?
  Yes; the Cheneys despise this former Republican president, and for good reason ... so they say.
  No; never has a former president been treated with this level of vindictive abuse by those temporarily in power.
  Who cares? It's Trump.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
