My guess: Trump's taxes don't reveal impeachable crimes, but there's something in there bad enough

to turn off and drive away his base and to humiliate him.

I can't imagine what that could be given how slavishly and blindly devoted they are to him and his utter lack of conscience and shame. But he knows what it is, he knows it's bad and he's sure he needs to fight to the bitter end to keep them from seeing it because he can t bear to face the consequences.

Please don't get upset or worked up about the Supreme Court taking these cases

Accepting cert does NOT mean the Court is going to side with Trump. In fact, it could very well mean the opposite.

Take a breath, everyone.

BREAKING: Supreme Court will hear Trump financial records case

The Supreme Court announced Friday that it will take up President Trumpís broad claims of protection from investigation, raising the prospect of a landmark election-year ruling on the limits of presidential power.

A New York prosecutor and three Democratic-led congressional committees have won lower-court decisions granting them access to a broad range of Trumpís financial records relating to him personally, his family and his businesses.

Unlike other modern presidents and presidential candidates, Trump has not released his tax returns. He and his personal lawyers have mounted a vigorous effort to keep that information private and defeat attempts to obtain the records from financial institutions and his accounting firm.

The Supreme Courtís decision to get involved represents a historic moment that will test the justices and the Constitutionís separation-of-powers design. It is the first time the presidentís personal conduct has come before the court, and marks a new phase in the investigations that have dogged his presidency.

Jerry Nadler's taken a lot of hits on DU for not being as smooth and crisp as Adam Schiff

I LOVE that Jon Meacham is not engaging in bothsiderism - he's calling out the Republicans

And making clear that it is they who are making this process contentious and partisan.

Love him.
