Trump Tax Returns Are Coming: SCOTUS Veteran Sees High Court Ruling Against Trump | MSNBC 1

 

A controversy at the center of Trump’s presidency reached the Supreme Court Tuesday – will the justices force the release of Trump’s taxes to certain investigators. An attorney who has argued over 40 cases before the Court, Neal Katyal, says the new oral arguments lead him to believe the court will rule against Trump — and require the release of some tax returns and financial records. MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent reports on the oral arguments, tracing the history of several related cases and contrasting Trump’s handling of his records to other candidates including Mitt Romney, and interviews Katyal and attorney Maya Wiley about the arguments on both sides. (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 5/12/2020.

    The country needs to know who pulls the strings.

    • @American Ancap the richest guy in the world is small fish. I think not. He has so much power, all over the world. He can single handedly destroy an economy if he wanted to.

    • @Sas Man doubt it until I see it with my own two eyes!!

    • @Kelso Kyzer He cares about “those like” himself….. Successful…. Can’t please everyone….you’re unenlightened……”the world you live in”? r u in jail?

    • Why single out Trump–most billionaires pay zero in taxes because they start philanthropic foundations where they pay zero for their charities as well. History will tell us that one of the major precursors of the end of a civilization is when the elite don’t pay taxes.

    • @kokoleka808 trump, and his kids are banned from charity in New York cuz they stole from it….

  2. Trump has no integrity, just another lie and broken promise.

    • Baz Write never said that did I. Clearly I’m no a trump fan you’re just to slow to realize that fact

    • @Mary Brock – *” thinks cheating on your wife is acceptable just don’t divorce your wife GOT IT BUTTERCUP
      .”*

      WTF does that even mean?? You sound as screwed up as trump. It’s NO WONDER WHY you support trump. You’re obviously trailer trash just like donny.

    • @Mary Brock 25, Mary. That’s how many sexual assault charges that have been filed against Trump. No politician has had 25 sexual assault charges filed against them.. just Trump.

    • @Mary Brock Are you trying to make an excuse for trump, by saying “everyone does it, so it’s not that big a deal”? That might work for trump cult members like you, but not for sane folks.

    • @HuckFinn What are the odds that “Mary Brock” is actually a woman, or a male trump cult member using a female name, to try to gain credibility in his/her playing down trump’s sleaziness? I realize that’s there’s plenty of female trump cult members, but this one smells funny.

  3. Did he just spit a Kayne bar………..I just fell out my chair.

  4. General Rico | May 12, 2020 at 9:01 PM | Reply

    All of this just to get Trump to follow thru on a promise he made.

    • @Susan Sullivan I’ve been audited it is all very real if your honest and forthright, No Worries for Comrade Bonespurs. What?

    • @susan coulter IF? Susan have you considered investing in a bridge in Florida?

      There is indicators of trump taken financial kickbacks from the border wall that was taken by cutting back funding from the CDC , cutting back staff from the CDC and not refilling the national stock pile yearly as all presidents yearly must have someone do. Now facing the pandemic, the money that was supposed to protect us, Trump used up. As well as his kids charging 3 to 4 times per night compared to what the general public paid when Trump forced officials in the Government and military to stay in resorts. I want to know these two things as clearly he is screwing the American tax payers bad in addition with all the deaths, I want to see his taxes to see how much he taken from the CDC for this boarder wall from a unqualified contractor that the government refused to give the bid to who’s a friend if Trumps that made the contract go to anyhow to the unqualified contractor to begin with.

    • What promise is that?
      Can’t keep track coz trump told about 18,000 lies since he got into office..pathological liar that trump is🥶🤯🤬😡

    • Even if it had to be done through years of scrutiny in court, at least one promise was made and kept. Hang your hat on that, Trump suckers.

  5. The sharpie monster has been grifting large and small ever since he took office. He’s no billionaire.

  6. If this bloviating mook has nothing to hide, why has he been fighting the release of this data? 🤭

  7. No American bank will loan him money , he owes both Russia and China !

    • And possibly Saudi.

    • Why single out Trump–most billionaires pay zero in taxes because they start philanthropic foundations where they pay zero for their charities as well. Trillion dollar market cap corporations like Amazon pay no taxes either. History tells us that one of the major precursors of the end of a civilization is when the elite don’t pay taxes.

      Gluteus Maximus I am also wondering if Orange has something to do with Epstein death🤔

    • Thats why he try to start war with China, to get defaulted his debt

    • Putin and China co-own the WH.

    Tell him to quit golfing and start going to court to defend hisself if he can YEH NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW!!!!

    • TheQueenRulesAll | May 12, 2020 at 9:29 PM | Reply

      Oh maybe need to just keep him on the golf course for the duration.

    • Christopher Bland | May 12, 2020 at 9:37 PM | Reply

      Or do his Job

    • @Christopher Bland What a concept.

    • Hopefully Justice Thomas will consider whether time on the golf course can be as debilitating, an impediment to discharging ‘presidential duties’, as suing various gov departments and agencies. Was a bit surprised that Justice Thomas even entertained the thought that ‘so many law suits’ (most of which were instigated by Trump… ) could be “debilitating” for this ‘president’. So, in effect Clinton should have created MORE litigation as a means of avoiding accountability??

    • Sir Stanley the Stumbler | May 12, 2020 at 10:45 PM | Reply

      Any competent lawyer representing him would ask he stays away. They don’t even need him anyway.

  9. Trump for prison 2020

  10. The president isn’t above the law. He is to his supporters.

  11. If Obama never showed his taxes Donnie and his lemmings would still be crying today.

      Virginia Tyree Try abandoning the party that has caused this nation to be on the brink of civil war. Try understanding that deliberately ruining a president because he’s republican isn’t going to cause anything other than violence and hate.

    • @dan112020 “And you’re something new is not to say anything at all nor compare when it was under President Obama or any previous Presidents compared to the abyss America is in right now.”

      My something new is to not attack everyone for saying things that differ from your point of view… sorry if that’s too radical to work, but I’m gonna give it a shot.

    • ​@Tanner Shortnacy So, don’t question the President or it will cause a civil war?

      You would demand loyalty to one man, and not the country he is supposed to serve? Weird…

    • @V – Obama did release his taxes. So did both Clintons.

    • Virginia Tyree | May 12, 2020 at 10:57 PM | Reply

      5 12 20 Hey again@Arron Smith, Lead by example, be kind, support your community, & be a decent human. It can be a challenge on a YouTube comment-thread. People don’t use their “real” identity. Agree, Meagan, from what I read had her own journey from her rough childhood; she was about 30 years old. v

  12. SCOTUS is no longer “independent”.
    It is now beholden to Trumpski, as Trumpski is beholden to the Russian mafia, the Deutsche Bank, and his $220 Million PERSONAL loan from CHIIIINA.

    • If you track the funding of most home loans all homeowners owe CHIIINA. Not to mention credit cards.

      Trumpf is a con man His bad behaviour with journalists and LIES aren’T funny anymore
      80,000+ Americans have died so far, and dead men don’T laugh
      And their relatives cry every day KICK HIM OUT OF THE WH

  13. Trump is a chronic, compulsive, pathological liar…It’s just that simple.

    • Fabius Maximus | May 12, 2020 at 10:47 PM | Reply

      HuckFinn or just maybe you are being manipulated to think this way & see him this way.
      I mean as far as I can see the main stream except fox blows thing out of proportion while moving the goal post.
      I smell something funny going on here

    • Vivian Stimpson | May 12, 2020 at 10:49 PM | Reply

      I bet trumpf isn’t an American. Probably from Kenya.

  14. Question – What is Obamagate ?

    Answer – Obama living rent free in trump’s brain

    CRIMINAL TRAITOR CLEARLY IS HIDING SOMETHING.

    • Scotland wants to know where he got the cash from to buy his golf courses there during an economic downturn, also UK press report his organisation has asked for government funding to help pay staff wages which they have not said they would top up as other companies have. He is broke world wide.

    • Chris Scharfenberger | May 12, 2020 at 10:11 PM | Reply

      Correction: Clearly hiding MANY things…

    • Obama showed his taxes AND his birth certificate. Stop being a coward, Trump!!

    • Why single out Trump–most billionaires pay zero in taxes because they start philanthropic foundations where they pay zero for their charities as well. History will tell us that one of the major precursors of the end of a civilization is when the elite don’t pay taxes.

  16. But we’ve already seen that this president *is* above the law. He’s got a gang of corrupt, dishonest, dishonorable, body guards: Bill Barr, Mitch McConnel, and many more, all dragged up from toxic muck of the so-called GOP.

  17. Trump should NOT have been inaugrated with out these records.

  18. Js Travelers | May 12, 2020 at 9:31 PM | Reply

    Only a complete sap would even consider voting for a candidate who refuses to show his tax returns to the American taxpayers.

    • @no name I love how you think showing your tax returns is some horrible thing that Democrats would NEVER force Biden to do. xD

      Literally every President since 1976 has shown their tax returns to prove they aren’t corrupt. Yes, of course Biden will be asked to do the same.

      If Trump’s so innocent why is he trying SO hard to hide his tax returns?
      Oh and “he doesn’t have to if he doesn’t want it” isn’t an answer.

    • @no name Fringe conspiracy crazy much?

    • @no name
      Hey nitwit…..I will make a promise to you:
      If the Democratic party ever nominates a candidate who even suggests he pull a Trump, and not sho his taxes….I swear, I will never vote Democratic again!!!!

      Lots of SAPS in OUR NATION lately.

    • @no name <<--- is probably a paid troll. Ive noticed the regular russian trolls here have starting hinting at/encouraging/warning of a civil war here if trump goes down. Keep an eye out for it. #TrollsSuk #DivideAmericans

    Nothing says “I’m a financial success” like fighting to the death to hide your tax returns.

    Nothing says “I never cheated on my taxes” like suing to hide your tax returns.

    • And nothing says you’re a flunky in school more than making your “Fixer” (Michael Cohen) threaten violence against your teachers if they release your school grades. (That’s the claim made by Michael Cohen regarding trumpy at least.)

    • HeisenbergCertainty

      Or that “I’m a stable genius,” by trying to hide your SAT and grades by writing threatening letters to your school if they ever release your grades or SAT scores.

      “Fordham confirms Cohen threatened legal action if it released Trump’s grades, SAT scores”

      https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/431983-fordham-confirms-cohen-threatened-legal-action-if-it-released-trumps

      What does he have to hide? Did he earn a degree or not?

    Not getting my hopes up. Trump has managed to weasel out of everything else so far.
