SCOTUS About To Rule Against Trump On Tax Returns, Says Obama's SCOTUS lawyer | MSNBC 1


The Supreme Court will rule on the fate of Pres. Trump’s long-secret tax returns by mid-July and possibly sooner, and Pres. Obama’s Supreme Court litigator says it will likely be a partial loss for Trump. “This whole Russia story may very well color” the decision, says Neal Katyal, explaining that legitimate questions about Trump’s links to Russia argue in favor of a legal probe of his taxes. Katyal discusses the case with MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber. (This interview is from MSNBC’s “The Beat with Ari Melber, a news show covering politics, law and culture airing nightly at 6pm ET on MSNBC. ). Aired on 6/30/2020.

  1. Follow the corrupt money and you’ll find all of the Trumps and most of the Republican party.

    • @Whicker Boy
      But but but..
      You’re desperate. Donny is a treasonous POS and criminal.
      If you still support you’re no better.

    • @Chris of STARS I don’t think he was trying to support the Republicans, he’s just a realist. whereas you seem to be hyper partisan with the naive belief that your team have clean hands.

    • Chris of STARS shhh, he’s not very bright.

      @Chris of STARS I’m a progressive, fool. Nice assumptions there buddy. I dislike corporate Dems but *hate* RethugliKKKlans a *lot* more. If you support #traitirdlDonnie I have no use for you. I’m simply not blind to how corrupt some Dens are. I’m *very* amused that you think I’d *ever* be one of you. I live in California and voted for Bernie in the Super Tuesday primary.
      The *only* kind of Republican I would *ever* be is a British one. Just FYI, saying you’re a Republican in the UK means that you think the monarchy should be abolished.

    Comrade Trumpski. Made in russia. He’s been sleeping with the russians since the 90s. He’s in debt and blackmailed by his puppet master VladdyPutin

    • @Wes Weston Maybe he will have to request asylum in Russia to escape from jail 😁.

    • bezbeanz Jett | July 1, 2020 at 9:06 PM | Reply

      I bet he’s a Russian asset

    • @P Good There are none so blind…. From day one this individual has tried to dismantle the sanctions Obama put in place and get Russia back into the G7 (Russia was suspended from the G7 by Obama and the other democratic leaders because of the invasion of Crimea). He had Flynn promise the Russian ambassador that Obama´s sanctions would be lifted, but he could not deliver because Congress (Dems and GOP) stopped him. He has not been able to get Russia into the G7 because the other countries. He still tries his best to serve his master. He has been badmouthing and sabotaging NATO from the start. His abject deference to Putin in Helsinki was an eye-opener even to many Republicans. But believe what you want.

      @u zilla Republicans are begging Obama to come back. 😅😂They dont know how to speak out against treason from their own leader

    • I’m sure Barr is scrambling to find the hidden indictments in order to destroy them.

    • I can see melania dusting off that green jacket with the writing on the back, now…😂

    There seems to be a life pattern here with Trump… I wonder what it is…? 🤔🙄😒🙁😑😕😠😡

  8. Let’s hope the Supreme Court takes the safety of America from a compromised President seriously and gets those tax and business documents into NY State and congress hands immediately!!!!

    “Paying taxes is for suckers…” – Donald Trump

  10. Not saying anything yet until the decision is made. Hopefully it will be in Thursday and not two weeks from now.

    • Most anticipated decision since the OJ Simpson trial.

    • Good news in time for the 4th?

    • I have a feeling that the decision will be 4-4, once again coming down to Roberts, who is a partisan hack, imo. Also, going by what Neal Katyal said, there will be 2 decisions here, one for the campaign finance violation, the other re the tax returns for the House. Hope that SCOTUS won’t try and keep everyone happy by ruling for the former and against the latter.

  11. What ever happened when Cohen said their were 2 sets of books trump used..hopefully that’s his coffin😷😷😷

    • Dirty Sanchez | July 1, 2020 at 1:05 AM | Reply

      @gurujr His golf course is his “server.” That’s where the deals go down.. Look what happens after he golfs with people.

    • Randall McCollum | July 1, 2020 at 1:56 AM | Reply


    • Yep. Fkn barr on day 1

    • Hopefully his CFO Alan Weiselberg who worked with him since his Dad …is cooperating with SDNY….he did the books..he’ll know where the bodies are buried. Also his assistant Rhona…I was an assistant and when you work for someone that long you pretty much know everything

    • taiwanesecats | July 1, 2020 at 9:29 AM | Reply

      @Drew K I hope Weiselberg gave up the goods on the payment of $130,000, that was claimed illegally as Cohen’s retainer, and they’re just waiting to prosecute, but Barr already interfered so I have my doubts.

    Any chance they could rule for him to pay back the emoluments billions he has stolen from hard working Americans???

      Dusan Todorovic Donald trump literally showed America his bank statements to prove he donates his Salary….

      If there was any benefit to trump in his taxes he would’ve released them on a billboard off I-95

    • Walt Schmidt
      Every other president has done for the last 40+ years. Why should he be any different?

    • @Walt Schmidt Where did you get you JD or LLB degree from? Trump University? And you will probably have to Google it to figure out what JD or LLB stand for.

    • Walt Schmidt | July 1, 2020 at 6:57 PM | Reply

      @D. K. And you will have to google the fact that Trump University was a real estate training school with no degrees given out.

      @Walt Schmidt Naw, he’s a coward, he’s going to P.C,u know, the place u paroled from

  14. The reckoning is about to be revealed…money people the world over will abandon Trump/Barr criminal organization

    • Rogrie Azevedo | July 1, 2020 at 5:47 AM | Reply

    • The congress has to bring their case to the senate to be judged and the senate always blocks the witnesses from testifying then they rule it as not enough evidence. It doesn’t matter, the senate loves him and won’t rid of him. It’s a sad fact.. all we can do as a people is demand the Supreme Court be another way of processing things.

      @unkljj Trump has been laundering money for organized crime since his casino days and most recently with German banks (that already have provided evidence to the FBI)..grow up…get educated.

    Good, cause he has been hiding Russian payoff Money. He is a criminal..

  16. Please Roberts don’t let Americans see my taxes, they’ll eat me alive!

  17. “Support the troops” is now a legitimate anti-Trump slogan.

    • @P Good Trump supports the Trumps.

    • Laura Stevenson | July 1, 2020 at 7:47 PM | Reply

      P Good why were the troops there? To stand against Putin in Europe, you know the border against Russia- Putin has already attacked another country. Trump weakened the defence line.

    • Laura Stevenson crazy how fast you guys change your postion on war so quickly, the second a republican is Anti-war, you guys go from pretending to be anti-war to being full on war mongers

    • @P Good there’s anti-war, and then there’s rolling over and letting russia do whatever they want to allies. trump wants to withdraw troops because putin wants him to withdraw troops. being a traitorous puppet isn’t a good reason for doing anything.

    • Who would have ever thought?

  20. “Crooked Hillary” released hers. Trump said he’d release his after the election and he also said hed lock her up. Neither have happened. All Donnie does is lie and make promises he can’t keep. Mexico isn’t paying for a wall, healthcare isn’t cheaper. #Biden2020
