Demand Justice Statement on Supreme Court Case Regarding Trump's Financial Records

WASHINGTON - Demand Justice Chief Counsel Christopher Kang released the following statement Monday after the Supreme Court released its decisions in Trump v. Deutsche Bank, Trump v. Mazars, and Trump v. Vance:

"In response to rising concerns about the Supreme Court’s legitimacy, John Roberts and a majority of the justices rejected Trump’s most absurd arguments –– but these opinions nonetheless quietly advance his interests. Trump can likely breathe a sigh of relief that he will be able to continue hiding his tax returns until after the election. The Court failed to take this case on an expedited basis and then failed to resolve all of the legal questions presented so Congress can conduct much needed oversight, and this has likely bought Trump enough time to keep Americans in the dark this year about his finances and potential misconduct."

"As the Court similarly has pushed the release of the Mueller report until next year, and as various cases about emoluments work their way through the system, progressives should remain deeply concerned about how the Republican justices handle Trump’s abuses of power."
