Trump News Today – Live: Supreme Court Allows Trump’s Tax Returns to be Released to Congress as Fraud Case Comes to a Climax

Merrick Garland appoints special counsel to oversee Trump investigations

Donald Trump has finally lost the battle to block Democrat-led House committees from obtaining his tax returns, staging an investigative sprint with Democratic lawmakers to review them before the next Congress is sworn in.

Struggling for years to protect his tax returns from dismissal, Trump suffered his final defeat on Tuesday, ironically, at the hands of the conservative majority he himself had installed in the Supreme Court.

Meanwhile, New York prosecutors are awaiting a verdict in a tax fraud lawsuit against the Trump Organization after they shelved the case Monday after only two witnesses took the stand.

And in Washington, Dr. Anthony Fauci, a member of the Trump Covid response team who has become Mag’s prime target, gave his final press conference on Tuesday as director of the nation’s top infectious disease control agency.

Dr. Fauci’s tenure at NIAID led to him being celebrated as a hero among Democrats and many other Americans who regarded him as the primary source of information about the government’s efforts to combat Covid-19. However, he was maligned by right-wingers who spread misinformation and lies about the disease’s treatment and preventive measures.

Why are Democrats interested in Donald Trump’s tax returns?

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court dealt the final blow to Donald Trump in his years-long battle to protect his tax returns from Congress.

It was a Democratic victory on what now seems almost ancient – the issue of Mr. Trump’s finances has taken a back seat to many media and Democrats, especially after January 6 and Mr. Trump’s efforts to nullify the 2020 election.

With the House Ways and Means Committee now due to receive copies of Mr Trump’s tax returns from many years ago, it’s worth looking back to refresh our memories of exactly why these documents are so important.

Conservatives are furious after it was revealed that the wife of the prosecutor appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland to determine whether any criminal charges will be filed against Donald Trump is apparently a Democratic donor who was involved in a documentary about Michelle Obama.

Georgia Runoff: Why One Senate Seat Is Crucial for Democrats

All eyes are on Georgia as the fierce race for the US Senate heads into a runoff next month.

The importance of the race remains high even though Democrats now have a guaranteed majority in the Senate for the next two years. If they retain the seat currently occupied by Senator Raphael Warnock, the party will consolidate its majority in the upper house to 51 votes, even without the vice president’s tiebreaker vote.
