Trump asks court to end House pursuit of his tax returns from IRS

Former President Donald Trump's legal team formally stepped into a long-running fight over a US House request for his tax returns, claiming Trump's financial history is being unfairly pursued for political reasons by Democrats and seeking to end House Ways and Means Committee investigations into the ex-President and his companies.
The Justice Department last week determined that the Internal Revenue Service must hand over Trump's tax returns to Congress, but a federal judge is still considering what could happen.
While the pressure is heating up in the House Democrats' pursuit of Trump's tax information, the tax returns aren't likely to be given to Congress anytime soon — and the new filing from Trump will likely prompt several new rounds of legal arguments.
The move in court on Wednesday makes Trump a party in the lawsuit. For the past two years, his legal team was essentially on the sidelines as the House fought the case with the executive branch.
Trump is asking the federal court to permanently block the Treasury Department from turning over his tax returns and order Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal to "end all ongoing examinations" of Trump and his companies.
Trump's team also seeks to recoup their legal expenses, according to their new filing.

    1. HOW MANY HOMES DID BLACK LIVES MATTER BUY SO FAR???? ANY OF THE MILLIONS THEY STOLE GO TO AT LEAST ONE BLACK COMMUNITY?? (CRICKETS)

    2. I call it motion sickness…they file motion after motion and the American people are dizzy and nauseated by ALL OF IT, and appalled by 45 and his lack of a moral compass.

  1. Lord Cheeto must have something serious to hide in his tax returns. If it was just a little embarrassing, say, I would have expected him to throw up his hands ages ago and say “F**k it! I’m not going to spend any more on legal fees for this!”

    1. that’s what I’m wondering, they must be scandalous….wonder if he deducted the $ he paid Stormy Daniels off as entertainment

    2. His political life depends on it… everyone that’s been around Don knows he’s not a billionaire.. He created the lie and if comes out he’s not a whole house of cards falls down around him especially in his ponzi like moving of money and loans to stay afloat. Also his brand goes down if the lie comes out. Lastly pretty much every thing the guy touches is corrupt and a cheat… it’s very likely his freedom for the rest of his life.. likely not too many years left… is dependent on people not looking too close at all the ways he’s cheated the government and workers in the last decade.

  2. “Shall” – the man swore on the bible, in front of everyone. He SHALL produce his taxes. And right now, after 5 years, he’s still trying to not let that happen. He lied to everyone before day one.

    1. @Belly Dancer Em trump also promised to show his porn magazine wife Melania’s immigration documents in July 2016, Google it…. instead Melania used chain migration to get her sister and both parents their Citizenship….and trump got away with yet another LIE.

    2. @Belly Dancer Em Actually, he said he couldn’t release them because they were under audit. That excuse was fraudulent because Nixon’s tax returns were resulted when he was under audit. A divine irony!

    3. @James Eagle ……”promised you not his voters”. Just a reminder when someone is President they represent EVERYONE in the United States. So a promise is a promise. This is another of the many reasons why Trump lost the election

  3. Doesn’t want the world to know he’s not as rich as he claims to be, because it would hurt his wittle feelings! Not to mention years of fraud!

    1. @mike briganti “You mean all the fake buildings and gold courses all across the country.” He also had a casino but we know how that business venture ended.

    2. I actually hope that’s all it is. Lord knows his ego is strong enough for it. I hope it just doesn’t show he’s owned by another counter or something like that.

    3. His whole myth of being the “successful businessman” is a house of cards and his tax returns are one of the key cards.
      Pull that card and the whole sham will collapse. That’s what Trump fears.

    1. BINGO!!!! NOW they CAN be released!!!!! I don’t care if they go public just so the committees, the House and the senate can get them!!!!!

  4. I can only imagine was MAGA nuts would say if this was Biden fighting this hard to conceal his taxes. Cheeto Jesus has truly done a number on you guys. Don’t forget to keep sending him your money. He appreciates your stupidity.

    1. Spanky J Bonespurs would be nowhere if it wasn’t for the stupidity and gullibility of his “supporters”. It takes an especially low IQ to buy into any of his crooked deals.

  5. Not “should”, not “can”, not “might”, but “shall”. No ambiguity nor wiggle room. Hmmmm….. what is he trying to hide????

    1. I’m guessing all sorts of crimes, failed business transactions and he ‘s wortha lot less than he says he is

  6. If he’s “the bestest business man” and “always paid his taxes” (per Blowhard trump) WHY would this embarrass him????

  7. “Trump asks court to end House pursuit of his tax returns from IRS” thereby re-affirming, yet again, that #Jan621 Insurrectionist #DJT is “utterly incompetent” as per the words of both his own Federal Judge elder-sister Maryanne Trump Barry and his own Clinical Psychologist niece Dr. Mary Trump. May #Imp2POTUS45 always hear “You’re fired” via the unwavering reality of election results that reject him who is the cause of #MourningInAmerica.

  8. I wonder why Spanky is so terrified to release his taxes like every other potus in modern times has done?
