Trump loses appeal in New York tax case, must hand over returns
Trump's lawyer said he would appeal the case to the Supreme Court.
By Allan Smith


"A federal appeals court ruled Monday that President Donald Trump's tax returns must be turned over to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, who had subpoenaed the documents from Trump's accounting firm as part of an investigation into the pre-election payoffs to two women who alleged affairs with Trump."
"Trump's lawyer Jay Sekulow said he would appeal the case to the Supreme Court. Trump had earlier lost the initial case before a federal district court, and it was since fast-tracked."

But why appeal the ruling farther if there's nothing to hide or keep from being revealed one could ask? It's much easier to simply release the tax returns and get it over with as previous presidents have done and stop farther efforts to pursue this matter on both sides.

Because he stacked the court, and he's pretty sure he'll win.

Of course it is. And he will win, because there are enough partisan judges to do his bidding.
Which is a very important reason to elect a Democratic president in 2020 and work to get a Democratic majority in the Senate as well in order to prevent a total Republican takeover in this country without checks and balances.
