Trump ordered to turn over tax returns by NY federal judge


Given the glut of angles from which the liberal left have attempted to spear the President, it often feels as though the President himself is under constant attack.

During the RussiaGate scandal, Donald Trump found himself accused of being some sort of double agent working for the Kremlin, or a puppet of Vladimir Putin himself.  When this narrative fell apart, due in no small part to Robert Mueller’s own reticence to prosecute the President, the left quickly shifted to one of their favorite anti-Trump tirades:  The former business mogul’s personal tax returns.

Numerous attempts to procure such documents have failed time and again for the Democrats, leaving them bewildered and befuddled by a President who simply refuses to cave to their asinine demands.

A federal judge on Monday dismissed President Donald Trump’s lawsuit seeking to block the release of his personal and corporate tax returns to the Manhattan district attorney, who is conducting a criminal investigation related to the president’s company.

U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero’s ruling flatly rejected what he called the “extraordinary claim” by Trump that while president he is immune not only from criminal prosecution but also from being criminally investigated by a state prosecutor or anyone else.

Marrero said that under Trump’s theory, not only his behavior would be immune from an investigation, but so would suspected “misconduct of any other person, business affiliate, associate or relative who may have collaborated with the President in committing purportedly unlawful acts.”

President Trump will be appealing the ruling.

The tax returns in question have been under audit for some time, forcing Trump’s lawyers to recommend that the President refrain from releasing the information until such a time as this review ends.
