Who cares about the accountants?
The IRS coughs them up on demand of the House W&M Chair.
The law says "shall provide."  There is no wiggle room.
Also, no spoon, no Dana.

Trump threatens to sue... believe me!

I don't know if you've noticed, but the Trump administration isn't too big on following the law. But a private company might not want to risk the consequences of refusing a subpoena.

It doesn't come from Trump or his accountants or his lawyers or anyone at the Trump Organization or anyone at the White House. It's a demand directly to the IRS.

So? They're going to say no. Then the courts are going to tell them "you gotta" and then the Trump administration is gonna go all "make me" and months later, still no returns and nothing happens because the GOP made a deal with the devil.

Or, get them from the accountants.

Obeying the law is not a crime you dumb shiat Peesident.
 
2019-04-15 03:32:08 PM  
That's the thing about Trump, he's all threat and rarely follow through.  If I was the law firm I would laugh so hard at that weak "threat".  I'd much rather go to court for being sued by Trump for the legal release of his tax returns than go to JAIL for failure to comply with the law and conspiracy to aid tax fraud, or whatever else the prosecuting lawyer can think to throw at me.

So bring it.  There's no way Trump wins that lawsuit, and the counter-suit would be delicious.

Trump does not attempt to block release of his tax returns because they are incriminating. Perhaps they are, but that is not Trump's motivation.

Trump's motivation is based upon his attitude toward anyone who he perceives as an enemy:

Purple_Urkle: Obeying the law is not a crime you dumb shiat Peesident.


I don't understand why everyone thinks they're suing him over a crime.

He's going to sue them for breach of contract, in that the contract says the information is private and cannot be shared outside said accounting firm without his explicit approval, which he does not grant.

BUT, much like the little boy with the knife about to poke it in the socket, he hasn't really thought this through.  Either A) there's a clause in there that exempts state or federal agency asks when they are lawful (which these are), or if they were idiots and didn't include this then B) any judge worth his salt is going to laugh this out of civil court given the subpoena is lawful and therefore supersedes the privacy agreement.

Granted Trump can go judge shopping with all his fancy new appointees, so he's really threatening the accounting firm with the COST it will take for them to get out of this, which on his side he will be using either government lawyers, or use his campaign fund, either way he's not out a dime.

Just another flavor of his same old tactic.  Threaten to bankrupt themselves proving he's wrong.  He's a one trick pony to the end.
