“The committees are seeking more than 10 years of financial records on Trump, his three oldest children — Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Ivanka Trump — and the president’s businesses.”

Just wow.

WP is just a news source, and NOT the decider.
SCOTUS will be the decider, no matter how WAPO spins it.

One step at a time. Scotus acceptance is step 1.

I was always under the impression the government prosecutors need to show a cause to force anyone from submitting documents and evidence.

Come on... If SCOTUS refuses to take up the case, the lower court decision (which went against Trump) will stand.

If a President is suspected...seriously suspected...of a serious crime the answer is to impeach and remove him/her from office and *then* he/she can be criminally investigated in the same way anyone else could be.

Any spin put on by the media has little meaning. Only meaningful event is when SCOTUS decides, because there are NO more appeals available.

Yes, and the alleged crime has to convince 67 senators that the crime was serious.

Actually there should be a land mark ruling limiting Congress’s abuse of it investigative powers for partisan political reasons.

The Court has an excellent opportunity here to smack the Congress for it reckless abuse of power hard. The Court needs to hit them hard to impose a reminder of the legal limits on their powers in dealing with Co Equal branches of Govt.

I wouldn’t be so sure about the outcome of this. They probably took the case because of its national importance, not necessarily that they want to reverse the lower court.

Not just Trump’s claims. This will impact every POTUS from now going forward.

Even the headline is biased, as if Trump is claiming nobody can investigate him for any reason.

His claim is that the Congress does not have rights it only recently claimed for itself - the ability to obtain and scrutinize the financial and tax returns for a president and everybody in his family and personal and professional business circles in a desperate and political search for crimes unspecified.
