The U.S. Supreme Court just released a bombshell decision and President Donald Trump is furious. There is no telling what will happen next, but one thing is sure: Trump will fight back.
According to Breitbart News, our nation’s highest court “ruled against President Donald Trump’s attempt to prevent a grand jury from requiring an accounting firm to turn over his financial records.”
Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito — arguably the two most conservative members of the court — were the only justices to file a dissenting opinion. The others decided to open Pandora’s Box.
Here’s the silver lining: While the grand jury has been granted access to Trump’s financial records, Congress has been barred from obtaining them. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi must be disappointed.
Of course, this entire effort is political to begin with. The president of the United States isn’t obligated to turn over his tax statements, yet here we are talking about it anyway. It is a perilous moment.
At least for now, however, Trump’s “financial records will not necessarily become public,” and that’s because “grand-jury investigations are confidential.” But Democrats aren’t going to stop trying to obtain them anyway.
