While on the campaign trail, Donald Trump vowed to release his tax returns once he got into office. For some reason, the former President's supporters and enablers don't want him to keep his campaign promise. Trump doesn't want to, either. I wonder why.

With help from the Supreme Court on Tuesday, Democratic lawmakers can soon see what issues the one-term President has with releasing his tax returns as his predecessors did.

The high court declined a request from Trump to block the release of his tax returns to a House committee that has been seeking them.

Via Yahoo News:

Trump asked the high court on Oct. 31 to intervene in his long-running legal battle with the House Ways and Means Committee over access to years of his tax returns. Since then, Trump has announced he will run for president again in 2024 and Republicans flipped enough seats to take control of the House of Representatives next year.

The court denied Trump's request without comment, which is common on its emergency docket. There were no noted dissents.

It's interesting that there were no dissents. I'm going to guess that he's drowning in debt. The vote was 9-0. Lumpy is running out of friends.
