Trump-Appointed Judge Drops The Hammer On The President, Orders Him To Release Tax Returns
Trump-appointed Judge Carl Nichols the of United States District Court for the District of Columbia ruled on Monday that Donald Trump cannot sue the State of New York over the release of his tax returns.
According to CNN, Nichols found that the president’s attorneys did not establish a so-called “conspiracy jurisdiction” based on his accusations that New York Attorney General Letitia James is a co-conspirator with House Democrats in a plot to improperly reveal the president’s personal financial information.
“Based on the current allegations, Mr. Trump has not met his burden of establishing personal jurisdiction over either of the New York Defendants,” Nichols wrote. “The Court therefore need not reach the question of proper venue.”
Trump’s taxes are closer to being released than ever before. Just this year, the New York state legislature passed a law that would allow the House of Representatives to request Trump’s tax returns.
