If you thought Donald Trump was upset with his Supreme Court picks before, wait until we start hearing his reaction to its latest ruling.
When Justice Roberts put a stay in place on the initial order for the Treasury Department to turn Trump's tax returns over to the House Ways and Means Committee, I am sure he thought he had a win.
Well, that all changed on Tuesday.
The court has declined to block the prior ruling, meaning the Treasury Department can now give Dems what they have been fighting to get their hands on for more than three years… Donald Trump's tax returns.
The very curious thing about this decision is that there were no noted dissenters in the case.
The Ways and Means Committee has contended that the uniqueness of Trump's prior business dealings was an opportunity to create new oversight rules on the office.
Of course, they also wanted to see if he profited from government business while president.
Even though Trump's tax returns passed through the IRS audits, the committee wanted to review his returns of possible violations of tax codes as well as redo the audits.
In other words, this is a massive fishing expedition.
I would also wager that it will not be long before Trump's tax returns are leaked to the media.
If that happens, Trump is going to go ballistic and Congress better prepare itself for a lawsuit.
Trump's attorneys came to the same conclusion, stating, "The committee's purpose in requesting President Trump's tax returns has nothing to do with funding or staffing issues at the IRS and everything to do with releasing the president's tax information to the public."
Now the clock starts to tick… Democrats have about six weeks to get their ducks lined up before the new House is sworn in.
If they don't have this wrapped up by then, McCarthy will end every current investigation that is going on, including wrapping up the January 6 committee and shredding its report.
