Another court victory for POTUS against the forces of darkness. The three judge panel affirmed the District Court dismissal.



This case presents the question whether a member of the public—here, a nonprofit organization—can use a FOIA request to obtain an unrelated individual’s tax records without his consent. With certain limited exceptions—all inapplicable here—the answer is no. No one can demand to inspect another’s tax records. And the IRC’s confidentiality protections extend to the ordinary taxpayer and the President alike. Accordingly, we affirm the dismissal of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC)’s lawsuit seeking President Donald J. Trump’s income tax records.

Trump is first president since Nixon to withhold tax filings

President Donald Trump’s tax returns, which he has refused to make public, can’t be obtained by a non-profit organization using the Freedom of Information Act, the federal appeals court in Washington ruled.

WHY

The information is shielded by a taxpayer privacy law passed after President Richard Nixon tried to use the Internal Revenue Service to harass his political enemies,
.....SAID Circuit Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson in her opinion


Amazing how much the two have in common.

Man do you guys remember when conservatives went on what seemed like an eternal tangent about Obama not releasing his college transcripts? They thought that made him the most secretive potus in the universe and he must be hiding something.

Here are a couple old gems to have a laugh

Fox's Ed Henry To W.H. Press Sec: Why Won't Obama Release His College Transcripts?

Rick Perry Releases His College Transcripts Less Than A Day In. Wheres Obama's?

Fox News went on about it for YEARS. And yet now Trump, while facing investigations into every facet of his life, refuses to release his tax returns and they adimently defend it. Trump has gone to crazy lengths to keep them concealed.

You would think a man who claims to be is rich as he is would want to flaunt his assets.

And yet, despite being multitudes more important than college grades, republicans have no problem with Trump actively concealing his tax returns. In fact they are complicit and defend him to teeth.

How the fuck do you not think he is hiding something?


It’s almost like they are massive hypocrite and all those years of demanding transcripts and birth certificates weren’t about “transparency”. Must have been about something else. What could that be.......

Because it is none of their business.
