A Clinton appointed judge has ordered Donald Trump to turn over eight years of tax returns to Cyrus Vance Jr. (You may remember the name; his father was Jimmy Carter's Secretary of State) Manhattan District Attorney.
According to the Washington Times:
Mr. Vance asked the 2nd Circuit to speed the case, saying he wanted briefings and oral argument this week.
He says his investigation is looking into whether the president broke the law by paying hush money to porn stars during the presidential campaign.The President appealed to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals who granted a temporary stay to the ruling by Democratic Judge Victor Marrero.
I am not sure what the law says here, but I do know it is merely a custom for the President to release his tax returns and, frankly, I wouldn't release them either were I Trump; the wolves are waiting to comb over every inch of his returns to find anything they can use against him.
No doubt, if they do get the returns they will find something. That is because it is impossible to be in compliance with the tax code; it was designed so overly complicated for just this reason. Eventually they will find SOMETHING. That is why it is important for the Courts to respect Trump's reticence here. But they won't if it moves s through liberal courts.
Watch for more fireworks with this.
