    Trump doesn’t want 4 more years of the presidency, he wants 4 more years of immunity. 🙂

    America can be blown up and burning down and this Supreme Court game of kicking the ball down the road to keep the truth from coming out will go on and on. This is insane and defeats its purpose!

      @Myriam Gapella Yes, it appears on one hand to be against him. But actually, low key, they still protecting him. America is working against its own best interests.

    • Trump is a vexatious litigant and has had 4,000 hearings before courts.
      The court costs ought to levied relative to matters filed. Like doubling at each tenth filing?

      @Brian Hard Yeah, but I really don’t think he’s worried about the money. He now have the tax payers to take care of that.

    The SDNY will see them.

      @COOKIE CAT,
      obama should have been disqualified for being an anti American Progressive Creep!

    • @Rand Kocher believe what you want, bud. But why won’t Trump show his taxes voluntarily, like he said he wanted to? No worries, it’s only a matter of time now…

    • @COOKIE CAT what is that supposed to mean? We all know that it is a norm and not a law. It is a norm for a reason though and the current president ignores anything that he is not forced to do. You certainly are not attempting to convince someone to see whatever you are talking about your way. Let’s go one further, you don’t seem to have American ideals.

      @AL- BOT,
      Seriously, do you have any understanding of the state the Nation has been put in 4 years ago by the democrat criminal organization and 99% of media (the fake news crowd)!
      – President Trump was stunned by the coup d’etat attempt against him after his election and as a result the Nation has been in a war that the Left has started ever since!
      – And you’re f.cking dumb enough to believe that normal things like tax return disclosures can still occur?

    • @Rand Kocher you’re funny.

    Not surprised from this court who stopped the vote count in Florida to allow bush 2 to win and a point a chief justice POLITICS from law

    This why Barr put over 200 judges in favour of Trump on the Benches.

    • @Larry Nabbs No Crazy Larry….they speak the King’s English…here in the colonies….we have our own ways of doing things. Hope you had a great Independence Day Lar.

    • Larry Nabbs | July 9, 2020 at 9:00 PM | Reply

      @R L T so, are you saying that Brits cannot make comments on YouTube unless they use American English? This sounds like nationalism. Extreme nationalism. Oh, and you too, hope you had a nice independence day, and have a great weekend.

    • Larry Nabbs | July 9, 2020 at 9:27 PM | Reply

      @R L T Here is an expression for you. ‘The play went like a bomb’. American English: It was a big disaster. British English: It was a big success. Be careful of that expression. Tea and crumpets will be served on the lawn this weekend, pip pip! And stay safe.

      Barr didn’t put judges anywhere. President Trump nominates them, and the Senate confirms them.

    • Beatrice Asarte | July 9, 2020 at 10:17 PM | Reply

      @God_Laughs _At_Atheists Trump Choose”s Barr is the rubber stamp.

  7. cohen is not above the law either—-could this be the underlying reason they remanded him to jail today?????

    Wait I’m confused…it says they ‘blocked’ congress, yet seems like the report is claiming it’s a win for them?

    • Scott Kraemer | July 9, 2020 at 6:26 PM | Reply

      It says they are blocked from getting the taxes for “now”. They can get them but now they’ve got to take it back to the lower court and then the appeals court but within the next year, they will have the taxes

    • OceanFragments | July 9, 2020 at 6:33 PM | Reply

      @Scott Kraemer Bout time.

  9. *SCOTUS not working for Trump. Thank God.*

  10. His legal team can keep on taking this case from court to court but it will not help.
    The NY prosecutors are not going anywhere 🙂

  11. I’m going to love watching him fall. He is going to deal with the NYSD for tax avation and all his shady deals. I don’t think he will see jail but his life will be done as he knows it. This is going to coast him a fortune and leave him broke and he will be remembered as the worst president in the history of the country. Karma is going to be a hitch for him.

    • If that’s the case, karma went easy on Trump. He deserves worse than financial failure for the lifetime of misery he inflicted on an ever increasing number of his victims.

    • He’ll see jail. He has done too much damage. When all his executive privilege is gone, he won’t be able to hide details.

  12. Let down again, with respect to power of trump. He get in again cause he doing such a good job for Russia, this man never show his finances. Trump sold USA, he never get in trouble

    It was so easy for Obama to release his birth certificate. But when a person is lying, is a con artist, it has to take the suprime court to demand the release 🤣 whoever still believe on this criminal is also a criminal himself/herself

  14. Mike Blatzheim | July 9, 2020 at 4:45 PM | Reply

    So two judges on the Supreme Court think that the POTUS is beyond any legal scrutiny. Aren’t they supposed to be knowledgeable of the US constitution? Because that sounds a lot like supporting a dictatorship.

  16. Looks like Joe won’t have to show his taxes to the republicans.

  17. Myriam Gapella | July 9, 2020 at 6:07 PM | Reply

    he must cooperate, but he will delay everything until after the election!!! The NOT SO SUPREME COURT is giving him more time to avoid Responsability for all his dirty dealings to be exposed.DIVINE JUSTICE NOW!

  18. That’s a lots of fuss to hide something so “tremendous”.

  19. Brani Peguero | July 9, 2020 at 7:00 PM | Reply

    Trump: “I am POTUS and therefore I have total immunity, I am impregnable, I am the one above all.”

    Lets see how much of that you are after November 3rd.
