SCOTUS Hands Trump a Victory Even Though he is Whining That it’s Not Fair
We begin with today’s two 7 to 2 rulings from the Supreme Court on Trump’s taxes which appear to be a huge win for Trump since the American public will not learn before the November election why Trump has broken the presidential tradition and refused to make his tax returns public because he is obviously hiding something. Nevertheless in response Trump is tweeting out aggrieved nonsense that the courts which he has staked with very conservative and unqualified younger judges are not fair to him. Joining us is the country’s leading expert on Trump’s taxes who has covered Trump for 35 years, David Cay Johnston, a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist and author of the bestseller The Making of Donald Trump who has uncovered so many tax dodges he has been called the “de facto tax enforcement officer of the United States”. He joins us to discuss how yet again the chief justice and the conservatives on the court have ruled in favor of the rich, powerful and connected over the interests of ordinary tax paying citizens. David argues that the so-called liberals on the court got rolled in joining the majority 7 to 2 opinion out of which they only got the acknowledgement that no man is above the law, while the man in question in effect escapes the law once again and could get reelected without the public knowing who Trump is indebted to and where his money came from, not to mention how he has routinely cheated on his taxes.
Trump and Roberts are the Winners While the American Public is the Loser
