Bad day for Trump today.  A federal appeals court ruled that his bank has to turn over 8 years of tax returns and the House Dems started releasing the deposition transcripts from testimony by witnesses in their impeachment hearings.

I haven’t seen too many reports on the latter - looks like just more color to the story.  Such as Sondland telling Yovanovitch that she should tweet out support for the president to keep here job - he actually told her to “go big or go home”. 

Trump’s lawyers plan to take the tax returns all the way to SCOTUS, where all eyes will be on John Roberts.  Will he allow his court to appoint a King?

Trump did get some non-horrible polling news today: he has narrow leads over most Dem candidates in the 6 close states he won in 2016.

Trump is not turning over his tax returns.  Period.  The SCOTUS can say anything they want, he will tell them to shove it up their collective arse, and that will be the end of that.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

They’re not getting them from Trump directly, they’re getting them from his accountant.  Unless that accountant has fewer clients than Michael Cohen, they’re not going to risk an existential punishment to protect Individual-1’s tax returns.

Lev Parnas appears to have flipped on Rudy, or is trying the lever a pardon out of Trump.  Or both.  I’m leaning both.

Punishment by whom?  Federal law enforcement, which is commanded by...let me check...Donald J. Trump?
