President Trump was just notified. His case is headed to court, and the nation is bracing itself for the outcome. There’s no telling what could happen next.
In response to California’s legislature passing an anti-Trump bill called the Presidential Tax Transparency and Accountability Act, government watchdog group Judicial Watch has filed a federal lawsuit to stop it.
Instead of bringing the lawsuit on behalf of Trump directly, however, Judicial Watch is suing “on behalf of four California voters” including “a registered Independent, Republican, and Democrat California voter.”
If all goes well, Trump may not have to get directly involved in the dispute over California’s new law, which Judicial Watch says “unconstitutionally adds a new qualification for candidates for president.”
As we know, liberals have been after Trump’s tax returns since before he became president, and California Democrats — some of the most radical in the nation — don’t care about harming the Constitution to do it.
The law specifies that “candidates who do not publicly disclose their tax returns are barred from having their names printed on California’s primary ballots,” which violates “the U.S. Constitution’s Qualifications Clause,” says Judicial Watch.
