“A long line of Supreme Court cases requires great deference to facially valid congressional inquiries. Even the special solicitude accorded former President does not alter the outcome. The Court will therefore dismiss the case,” the judge said in a 45-page memorandum.
Judge McFadden told House Ways and Rep. Neal that it’s not a good move to make Trump’s tax returns public.
“Anyone can see that publishing confidential tax information of a political rival is the type of move that will return to plague the inventor,” the judge wrote. “It might not be right or wise to publish the returns, but it is the Chairman’s right to do so. Congress has granted him this extraordinary power, and courts are loath to second guess congressional motives or duly enacted statutes. The Court will not do so here and thus must dismiss this case.”
Trump’s attorneys have two weeks to appeal.
