“Kevin basically is whatever you want him to be. He lies. He’ll change the lie if necessary. How can anyone trust his word?” the Republican said.


LOL I'm getting Billy Joel vibes from that quote--


"He can kill with a smile, he can wound with his eyes

He can ruin your faith with his casual lies

And he only reveals what he wants you to see,

He hides like a child but he's Kevin McCarthy to me"

Trump asks Supreme Court to block release of tax records to House Democrats


Former President Donald Trump on Monday asked the Supreme Court to block a congressional committee from accessing his tax records as a long-running legal battle reaches its final stage.


Trump, who unlike other recent presidents refused to make his tax returns public amid scrutiny of his business affairs, turned to the justices after an appeals court in Washington refused to intervene. The court has recently rejected similar requests made by Trump.


Trump's lawyers say the committee's stated purpose that it needed the information to probe how the Internal Revenue Service conducts the auditing process for presidents did not stand up to scrutiny.


"The committee’s purpose in requesting President Trump’s tax returns has nothing to do with funding or staffing issues at the IRS and everything to do with releasing the president’s tax information to the public," the lawyers wrote in the court filing.


The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit on Thursday declined to reconsider a three-judge panel’s ruling from August that said the House Ways and Means Committee could obtain the tax returns.


The appeals court's decision not to reconsider its ruling means the tax returns will be disclosed if the Supreme Court does not immediately intervene.

Takeaways from the House committee’s report on Trump taxes


t will take time for lawmakers and the public to digest the trove of documents relating to former President Donald Trump’s tax returns released Tuesday night by the House Ways and Means Committee.


Trump repeatedly defied convention and refused to release his tax returns both as a presidential candidate and as a sitting president.


The committee, which is responsible for IRS oversight and writing tax policy, had long sought and finally obtained just a few weeks ago Trump’s tax returns for 2015 through 2020. Its stated aim was to review “how the IRS enforces the federal tax laws against, and ensures compliance by a president.”


Here are some of the top initial takeaways from the committee’s report, which includes both its analysis of the IRS presidential audit program and an analysis of Trump’s returns by the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation.


  • Committee says IRS failed to properly audit Trump
  • Trump paid no federal income taxes in his last year as president
  • Questions raised about Trump’s charitable deductions
  • IRS notes ‘history of difficult negotiations’ with Trump’s team
