Supreme Court Hears Arguments About Trump Tax Returns | The Last Word | MSNBC 1


The Supreme Court heard arguments from two cases today involving subpoenas for Trump’s tax returns. Neal Katyal tells Lawrence O’Donnell that he thinks it’s possible the justices could rule against Trump in both cases because “in both cases, you had one fundamental overarching principle that the court cared about, which is no one is above the law.” Aired on 5/12/2020.

  1. Whatever is in Trump’s taxes, it must be the holy grail of fraud for Trump to fight so hard and for so long to keep them hidden.

    Trump: “I’m the most transparent president in American history.”

    Reporter: ” So does that mean you’ll release your taxes?”

    Trump: “Why would you ask me such a nasty question like that?
    Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for coming. Goodbye.”  😂😂😆

      “Transparent” ha! He can’t praise his chocolate cake enough but is keeping the lid on the recipe firmly for more than three years now.

      my guess would be there’s a lot less than he always claimed, making him a loser, a tool.

    • He means he is transparent because most can see right through his BS.

      David J I lived in NYC left after 911 the man has 12 buildings with his name on them he own 4 out of the 12 outright, no one knows where his money come from. Donald Trump is a confidence man and one who’s number is up

    Trump thinks he’s Al Capone and Capone went to jail on tax evasion.Let’s repeat history.

      Cooking with TSS Okay, Russian troll. Prove me wrong.

    • @Dave Schultz Congress has an excellent reason- the fact that the law states the IRS “shall provide” tax documents when requested. it doesn’t have any qualifiers for why simply that they do. As for Muller going through his taxes- nope he didn’t because he realized it would take more time and money than he could get the DOJ to give him once he requested them and trump started fighting to keep them buried.

      @FirstIsa , Democrats wish they could go to every Republican house with the police and say, “No evidence of a crime but we need to come in your house and look for one.”

    • Lol that was the only way the could get gangsters

      Won’t happen with Ginsburg in there. That is one tough old lady.

    • @Dave Schultz Congress does, perfect disinfectant not have hoax…great, don’t know him. Close to zero, give a (T)reason. Look, what you hear isn’t what I said.. look at Istanka…I date her, come here hunny…daddy

      Next, thank you. Next your fake news next. No ammunition.

      @Whitey O’Banion we should just get this civil war over with while the economy is shut down. Or we could wait until unemployment reaches 34%. That way either the communists or the Nazis can take over. Given the fact that the communists started this plague, ill be voting Nazi.

    • Judge: Mr. Trump how much money do you owe foreign countries?
      Trump: go ask China

      My money is on most of the Justices claiming attorney-client privilege in their opinions. Or they will claim the law firm is acting on behalf of the client, and thus the burden on the law firm is imputed to the President (client).

    If no one is above the law, it’s long past timet that our government finally proves it.

      Dave Schultz But what is he hiding if he has nothing to hide? He promised to turn them over once elected and he never has. Do you think all his tax returns show legal tax returns or that he even paid taxes?

      Write Gretchen the security of your papers and effects are in the Bill of Rights as well as a safeguard against unlawful searches and seizures for you and Rio Linda that means no witch hunts

      @Ethan Weeter , Trump will not let the Democrats harass him. He will push back on them for everything because their intentions are not good, they are bad. Trump fights them and this is why I like him. Democrats are desperate despicable people who should not be allowed to bully anyone.

    • Gretchen Wenzel | May 13, 2020 at 1:34 PM | Reply

      Dave Schultz You’ve not been paying attention. Trump has lost every single battle in the courts regarding this. The only thing he’s winning at is delaying the inevitable. Dragging this out in the court system. There are several clear-cut reasons why he needs to be accountable with his taxes and they’ve all been presented in court and he has lost every single case, so far.

    What bothers me is his base isnt concerned with why hes trying so hard to hide something he said he would release, they always give some moronic excuse or deflection, i swear i never realized the true meaning of deplorable until these gullible, low IQ, no character MAGAT’S 😣

    • @Tessmage TesseraThe world use to look to America to police the world, a non dictator country, ever since trump more dictators have emerged like Brazil and the Philippines and India oppressing the Muslims. Trumps based do not care, trump parents were KKK, nothing good can come of that, trump base are racist/supremacist/Nazi/evangelicals/Jews will not replace us brigade/IMPEACHED imbecilic paedophile trump killing disciples, Arian brotherhood/NUTJOBS/Putin GRU Kremlin bot/troll/sleepers, they just glad they got something that resembles white in the white house which add up to 35% of American voters, what is not known is how much influence the Russians have on the American election President Obama never should have left our country in the hands of a madman. Trump is killing us and President Obama’s real crime is failing to use a drone strike to take out the Trump Terror Syndicate. ObamaGate…when you want to keep Trumps out of your house, just put up an ObamaGate! Only 2 people died in America from Ebola, cause President Obama stomped on it like a champ. Somehow President Obama has been living rent free in trump’s empty skull…..that is sort of a crime. Word has it when Trump dies they’re going to bury him standing up so he can’t lie in the grave. Russian spies caught in America now posing as trump supporters and wearing Russian propaganda t-shirts at trump rallies.

    • @Dave Schultz has his head firmly buried in the orange sand. He doesn’t want to admit that evidence of a president being financially compromised is of utmost importance.

    • @Drilomac is completely triggered, spewing mad whataboutisms to try to distract from the latest evidence of Trump’s corruption.

    • Ha HA MAGATS!

    • Because they are unpatriotic cowards willing to sacrifice their souls in the name of indifference

    We will all know if Congress ever gets to see those tax returns.

    Jul 30, 2019 · California Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed a bill into law that requires presidential candidates to submit tax returns to qualify for the primary ballots.

  16. The Supreme Court is talking about his tax returns. Every time you think that is the stupidest thing he could do, he trumps it.

      Trump won the day they announced: “Joe Biden is the presumptive Democrat nominee”.

    • @Dave Schultz Hey, Moron, go away fool. Mommy is calling. Time for your meds. Just how many silly pills do you take every day?

  18. I had to laugh when Dimwit Donnie’s lawyer said (paraphrasing): “You know the president is busy fighting a pandemic at he moment? Do you really expect me to go to him and say: ‘Sir, here’s a subpoena from Congress, that we’ll have to talk about'”?
    Hahaha…as if the orange blob would be doing anything else but watching tv and rage-tweeting (plus holding rallys and golfing at any (non-pandemic) times).

      Yah hard to believe that thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of people stand In line for hours waiting to rally with trump . Crazy right ? What’s wrong with all those thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of people ??

  19. Must be hiding all that money laundering for the Russians and Saudis, and who knows what other enemies of the US he’s been working with. Trump is an outright pile of human waste.
