    Federal appeals court rejects Trump's effort to shield his taxes

    On an 8-3 vote, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit declined to grant a hearing before the full court, upholding a ruling last month by a three-judge panel of the court to allow the subpoena.

    The decision means that unless Trump appeals to the Supreme Court and wins, the House Oversight and Reform Committee can enforce its subpoena ordering the accounting firm, Mazars USA LLP, to hand over any documents in its possession related to accounts of the Trump Organization dating to January 2009.

    It wasn't ever illegal in the first place. Another pathetic case of the Democrat socialists trying to legislate on the fly.

    More a case of a truthless worm trying to delay the inevitable.

    I think it will be funny if it ends up like Geraldos special on Al Capones secret vault.





    The IRS doesn't seem concerned with Trumps taxes, what does that tell you?

    This is just another example of the TrumpCanDoNoWrong party at work. If it were Hillary Clinton and not Trump, you'd be yelling HOORRRAAAYYY from the mountain tops. At last we'll find out her evil plot.

    The IRS works for Trump. I trust exactly zero about what the Big Liar and all his henchmen say. Liars lie.

    If I remember correctly Rachael Maddow showed that in 2005 Trump paid a higher tax rate than Bernie Sanders and Biden.
    It might be pretty funny if after all is revealed the same would apply to the ones they are after now, almost as funny as when the Russia collusion delusion failed and she teared up on camera.

    But we didn't do that with Hillary Clinton. The investigation finally concluded , and that was the end of it officially.

    With the Socialist Democrats it never ends until the coup attempt is accomplished.

    It took me a few minutes to stop laughing over this one.


    The investigation concluded, and then they started another one. And then another one. Thirty-three hearings and and four years later, they finally concluded. Sort of. Then they went on about her emails for two more years.

    At least the Mueller investigation produced some actual indictments and prison sentences.

    And?
    Still doesn't change the fact he may very well have been paying a higher percentage than those throwing a fit over it, 2005 should have been a lesson. I have a feeling it's going to be pretty funny

    And so the IRS does seem concerned about Trump's taxes.

    I've been audited and probably a few others here have too especially those who have run a business, being audited means just that.

    Do you mean Rachael Maddow? She's the one that broke the story and I know the short hair can be confusing and she is a lesbian so she most likely has grabbed a few p*****s in her time so I can see the mix up.

    LOL Okay.

    So when they were auditing you, was the IRS concerned with your taxes?
    Obviously, yes.

    The Mueller investigation was a fishing trip.

    All investigations are fishing trips. If they already had the information there would be no need for an investigation.

    So you don't feel like addressing the point or the facts?
