The 8-3 vote by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, declining the Republican president's request to rehear arguments that the subpoena to Mazars LLP was illegitimate, brings Democrats closer to shedding light on his business interests and how he built his fortune." Unfortunately for Trump's personal lawyer, Jay Sekulow, who has been having a "bad day" when it comes to the Federal Court rulings, Mr. Sekulow's legal arguments are turning out to be ineffective and fallible as the Federal Court Judges continue to rule against Donald J. Trump's skewed legal arguments to try and stop the dissemination of Trump's tax returns to the House of Representatives, as dictated by Constitutional law and legal precedence; as there have never been anything illegal in the Congressional subpoena for Trump's tax returns. The House Oversight Committee subpoenaed Mazars this year, saying it needed the records to determine if Trump complied with laws requiring disclosure of his assets, and to assess whether those laws needed to be changed. "Trump sued the House panel in April, arguing that its subpoena exceeded limits on Congress’s investigative power. He said the true motive for the subpoena was to expose private financial information "with the hope that it will turn up something that Democrats can use as a political tool against the President." Alas, the President and his legal scholars do not have the authority to "sue the House of Representatives" as it has long been established that the House has the Oversight authority over the Executive Branch of the Federal Government and cannot limit the investigative powers of the House branch committee's of their oversight authority! I am quite sure that Trump's legal team will seek to take their appeals to the Supreme Court for final adjudication and disposal; but even with SCOTUS being stacked with Conservative Judges, there is no guarantee that Trump will prevail, as "the black letter law" is not on his side! "The May decision was the first time a federal court waded into the tussle about how far Congress can go in investigating Trump and his business affairs, and marked an important victory for House Democrats. A three-judge panel of D.C. circuit judges, in a 2-1 ruling, upheld the lower court judge in October. "Contrary to the president’s arguments, the committee possesses the authority under both the house rules and the constitution to issue the subpoena, and Mazars must comply,” Judge David Tatel wrote on behalf of the majority." As you can see, these Federal judges are not "making new law" but working instead to re-define and clarify what the laws state, in regards to a persons tax returns and this just reinforces the notion that "Nobody is Above the Law" not even the President of the United States, as the laws are applied equally across the board!
