    NEW YORK (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump must hand over eight years of tax returns to Manhattan prosecutors, a federal judge ruled, after Trump claimed he was immune from being sued.

    The decision, by U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero in Manhattan, escalates the president’s battle to keep his finances under wraps, despite having promised during his 2016 White House run that he would disclose his tax returns.

    But the judge made clear that if the appeals court disagreed with that finding, Trump should lose.

    “The expansive notion of constitutional immunity invoked here to shield the President from judicial process would constitute and overreach of executive power,” Marrero wrote.

    Such a “sweeping doctrine finds no support in the Constitution’s text or history,” and would effectively leave the president, his family and his businesses “above the law.”

    He’ll just laugh, pay some lawyers, appeal it to a higher court that is controlled by one of his fascist judges, and voila!, like magic, his problem goes away.

      @ravensong This one will go to the Supremes, and I think they will rule against Trump. I have no idea how long that will take, though.

        It will be 5-4 for Trump.  The 5 fascist judges on the SCOTUS will protect their fascist hero.

          I must disagree. Roberts won’t go along with them. We’ll see.

    We really have to make the government work intelligently. Oxymoron, I know. But if some space alien worm is in any President’s brain should we just fart around for years like we are doing?

    to shield the President from judicial process would constitute and overreach of executive power

    Simply put, another attempt to obstruct justice. Impeach the bastard! All those politicians who defend Trump’s obstruction, show voters in writing such violations and cover-ups before the next election. Pence also defends and protect Trump’s bs.
