On Thursday, U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden basically told ‘thirsty’ Democrats that their fast-track lawsuit demanding President Trump’s tax returns would have to wait.
The federal judge wrote that it was a complicated matter and there were a “narrow set of cases” that require urgency.
To be honest, there is no need for Trump’s tax returns to be made public any more than requiring every single member of Congress to prepare their tax returns available to the public. It serves no purpose, but is just another distraction from frustrated Democrats because everything else they have tried to disrupt the duly elected President hasn’t worked.
In July, The House Ways and Means Committee sued the Treasury Department and the IRS in an attempt to access Trump’s tax returns.
Trump has long declined to release his tax returns and wants to block two House committees from getting the records, calling their document requests unlawful.

The panel at the time did not cite a justification for the lawsuit but said it had “multiple oversight and legislative purposes” for seeking the material, including assessing the IRS’s own evaluation of Trump’s compliance with U.S. tax law.

Congress should not have the power to intrude in the private affairs of any individual citizen just because the majority disagrees with the policies of the President from an opposing party. You want them, then write a law and get it passed, so it applies to all presidential candidates or all citizens. It won’t happen.
Too easy to weaponize against them when they aren’t in control down the road. Dems need to grow up and start focusing on representing the American citizens that elected them and stop prioritizing the vast majority of citizens, especially those they disagree with, as being less worthy of benefits and rights than non-citizens.

The article stated: “The panel at the time did not cite a justification for the lawsuit but said it had “multiple oversight and legislative purposes” for seeking the material, including assessing the IRS’s evaluation of Trump’s compliance with U.S. tax law,” so, the Democrats believe they should be assessing how the IRS evaluates things, sort of like the way they could do that to conservatives under the Obama administration.
Maybe it’s time for the IRS to do an audit of all the Democrats in the House, their spouses, their children, their business associates, their parents, and their brothers and sisters. That way, when the IRS is finished, they will have lots of IRS evaluations to assess. Not that they’ll be able to do anything about them.
