They're going to pull a Scalia

5-4 to keep them sealed.

"Releasing trump's tax returns would be unfair to his presidency, but this ruling applies to this one case only and is not to be used as a precedent."

1. I don't know. George Conway doesn't seem to think so.






The Supreme Court granted President Clinton’s petition for certiorari to hear the Paula Jones case, then ruled against him 9-0. Similarly, Trump will likely lose the Manhattan DA case by a lopsided vote given what we heard today. He’ll probably lose the ...

... House subpoena case today, although he may get a couple of more votes in that one.







Carey Dunne, NYDA’s General Counsel, did a spectacular job on the grand jury case in SCOTUS today. He was helpful to every justice, precise, candid, accurate, & provided the strongest possible defensible arguments for NY against Trump. I’d give him an A or A+, very rare for me.

6. Agreed

The conservative court members are a joke, an absolute joke. They are not going to make a fair ruling.

7. 'applies to this one case only and is not to be used as a precedent'

it will stand until they can fuck over a Dem POTUS, especially if Trump is elected and takes the court to 7-2 or even 8-1 (If Sotomayor's bad chronic diabete does her in) hard RW (and for the RW cherry on the cake, replace an ageing Thomas with a 40-something RWNJ)
