Appeals court says House can obtain Trump's taxes from the IRS

Summary by Ground News
The Internal Revenue Service must hand over former President Trump's tax returns to a House committee, a federal appeals court ruled on Tuesday. A three-judge panel for the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously sided with the Biden administration and the House Ways and Means Committee. Trump's lawyers argued that the law is unconstitutional and that compliance with the request would pose First Amendment and separation of powers concerns. The decision upholds a prior decision, by a federal district court judge, which was issued in December. Trump is likely to ask the full D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals to re-hear the case or petition the U.S. Supreme Court to hear an appeal of Tuesday’s ruling.
