The right-wing Supreme Court has bailed out Donald Trump by preventing his tax returns from being turned over to the House Ways and Means Committee. The House panel wants Trump’s tax returns as part of a probe into the former president’s tax law compliance. Trump has fought it every step of the way, and having the Supreme Court shut it down was the last arrow he had in his quiver. The decision this week was to put a temporary hold on the tax returns being sent to the House so the legality of such a move can be assessed. Now, Trump’s team will just need to run out the clock until 2023 when it’s anticipated by many that Republicans will take over the House of Representatives, ending this investigation. There are probably several reasons why Trump doesn’t want to turn over his tax returns, and it’s entirely possible we’ll now never figure out why he was so concerned about them being made public.
