Law’s Jonathan Adler weighs in on House committee reviewing Trump’s tax returns

Trump tax order is latest rebuff by Supreme Court that he remade
BloombergJonathan Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law, weighed in on the Supreme Court’s order to allow a House committee to review six years of former President Donald Trump’s tax returns. “Filings by a sitting president necessarily raise larger issues and often implicate unsettled questions of law than do claims by a private citizen who happens to be a former president,” he said. “It should not surprise us that courts are less solicitous of his claims now that he is no longer in office.”
