Try as they might, the Democrats will seemingly stop at nothing just to take a peak at Donald Trump’s tax returns.
What they plan on finding, no one will ever know. What we are fully aware of, however, is that the Democrats will take any kernel or reality and distort it endlessly to manufacture a crime. Even if Trump is guilty of nothing, the House Democrats will find a way to make Trump pay.
Lawyers for Former President Donald Trump have appealed this week’s court ruling that his accounting firm must turn over some of his financial records to a Democrat-led House of Representatives committee.
In a court notice, lawyers for Trump said they would ask the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to review Wednesday’s decision by a trial court-level judge.
Wednesday’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta came in a long-running lawsuit brought by the House Oversight Committee, which first issued a subpoena for Trump’s financial records in 2019.
The lawsuit was back in Mehta’s courtroom after a trip to the U.S. Supreme Court. In a July 2020 decision, the high court said Mehta needed to redo his legal analysis and weight the House’s needs for Trump’s financial records against the burden such a request puts on the former president.
Mehta’s ruling from this week did that, and it was a split decision. He said Trump’s accounting firm, Mazars, should turn over financial documents to the House committee but not all of the records the panel had sought.
Like pigs hunting for truffles, the Democrats will try and find whatever they can to takedown the Former President once and for all.
This will be a legal battle fought for years and years to come. A new judge will make headlines, ruling for or against Trump, deeming his tax records either fair game or private. Regardless of the outcome, the American people — at least the reasonable ones — will care not about how much or how little Trump paid in taxes.
What matters is what he did when he assumed office as President of the United States.
That’s how he will be judged.
