Mnuchin says courts need to settle fight over Trump's taxes

Source: Associated Press

By ANDREW TAYLOR an hour ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Wednesday that it’s up to the courts to referee his dispute with House Democrats demanding access to President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

Mnuchin told a Senate panel that the fight between the administration and the House Ways and Means Committee chairman, Rep. Richard Neal, “will go to the third branch of government to be resolved.”

Neal, D-Mass., has subpoenaed six years’ worth of Trump’s returns with an eye to examining whether Trump is paying all the taxes he owes and whether his web of businesses has created conflicts of interest with his official actions as president. Neal has set a Friday deadline for the IRS to deliver them.

But Mnuchin said that the Treasury Department was unlikely to comply.

“We haven’t made a decision but I think you can guess which way we’re leaning on our subpoena,” Mnuchin said, adding, “I take great comfort that there is a third branch of government to deal with this important issue.”

4. Its going to be funny

When the lower courts defer to Congress and the SCOTUS doesn't take this up. Because courts are very likely to rule that if there was supposed to be a limit to what Congress can request(define legislative purpose), then Congress should have said so in the law. This is actually a very simple legal concept that doesn't require much court scrutiny.

The SCOTUS, unlikely to even hear this, is not going to rule that some other law or part of the Constitution makes the law that allows Congress to request tax returns is "unconstitutional". And they are not going to rule that if Congress is controlled by a party different than that of the POTUS, then they can't request his taxes. No possibility.

9. Delay is a Win

Courts recognize delay tactics. He will be penalized in some creative way for being a prick, because "being a prick" isn't and official legal problem.

I can't wait to see some judge show these pricks who is the smarter and more clever of the two.
