A top court has given Donald Trump the answer he has always dreaded:
Donald Trump was trying to block the release of his tax returns to Congress. The court wasn't going to stand for that.
Trump can still appeal the case to the Supreme Court. Knowing him, he probably will. Why would he have been working so hard to keep the records sealed if he was fine with them getting out? Obviously he doesn't want them to, and will probably do whatever it takes to block their release. If the Supreme Court is the appropriate next step in that procedure, then so be it.
After Biden "won" the 2020 presidential election, the Department of Justice said they should be able to review Trump's records.
Donald disagreed, and filed an appeal as a result.
U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden then ruled that the Treasury Department should turn over the records to the congressional committee. A three-judge panel agreed about half a year later.
The D.C. Circuit Court has now denied Trump's request to stop the release as well.
If Donald truly wants to block the release of these documents, he may be running out of time. He's certainly running out of options.
In fact, he only has one left. The Supreme Court. Knowing him, that's probably right where this case will end up.
Massachusetts Democrat Richard Neal thinks that Trump knows what the outcome is going to be, and is only trying to delay it:
"We’ve waited long enough—we must begin our oversight of the IRS’s mandatory presidential audit program as soon as possible," Neal said.
