ALERT: Trump Petitions Supreme Court


( – HAPPENING NOW: Just moments ago, former President Donald Trump formally requested that the United States Supreme Court intervene and stop the United States Congress from obtaining his tax returns.

As The Washington Post is currently reporting in, “Trump asks Supreme Court to stop release of his tax returns“:

“Former president Donald Trump has asked the Supreme Court to intervene and prevent members of Congress from obtaining his past tax returns in an appeal filed Monday. Should the court decline, the records are set to be turned over to the House Ways and Means Committee on Wednesday.

“‘The Committee has no pressing need for Applicants’ information so it can study generic legislation about funding and regulating future IRS audits of future Presidents,’ his attorney Cameron Norris wrote, saying the release of records would cause Trump “irreparable harm.” [emphasis added]

Adding context:

Last week, the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit declined to review earlier rulings finding that lawmakers are entitled to the documents. The court also said it would not put the release of the papers on hold while Trump continues a legal fight that began in 2019. But the Supreme Court could issue an emergency order keeping the records from being released this week.” [emphasis added]

According to Supreme Court experts, Chief Justice Roberts is expected to act quickly on the request.
