More precisely, they didn't decide the case with the House seeking Trump's tax records; they sent it back to the lower court.
Both rulings 7-2 with Thomas and Alito dissenting.
Any way you slice it, this is a bad result, because it delays access to Trump's tax records until after the election and vindicates his strategy of just straight-up refusing to cooperate with investigations. To a certain extent, it doesn't matter what legal precedent this case ultimately produces; the practical precedent it produces is "the president can just tell Congress nah, he's not gonna comply with a subpoena, and they can't do shit." A lot of really awful shit has come out of this administration, but I think that, in particular, is a legacy that can do real harm for a very long time, perhaps even longer than all the judges he's appointed.
(Speaking of which: if there's a silver lining to this, it's that Trump is apoplectic that Gorsuch and Kavanaugh ruled against him. At least there's some schadenfreude to be had there.)
I won't hold my breath for any Trumps to see jail time, but I wouldn't be surprised to see fines in the tens of millions. And I think that one of the things we're likely to see before this is all over is that tens of millions is actually a lot of money for the Trumps, and all that "billionaire" talk is not just exaggeration but actual fraud.
No he isn't. He's fucking terrible at lying. Just because he does it a lot doesn't mean he's good at it.
Ed Wood has 46 directing credits at IMDb, but ain't nobody gonna describe him as "really, really good at directing."
why does this remind me of that story where a military contractor showed Ronald Reagan a G.I. Joe figure and a Ken doll and said the G.I. Joe is what the US would be with a space-based nuclear weapons platform and the Ken doll is what they'd be without one
