After a Federal appeals court ordered the release of Donald Trump’s tax retursn — and Trump’s lawyers said they would take the case to the Supreme Court — I spoke with Turkey’s TRT World on Tuesday about the case. Will it lead to the political demise and even prison for Trump, or can he count on the backing of the conservative justices including his appointments Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh?
We are in unknown territory. The closest case that we have is Richard Nixon during the Watergate crisis who was accused of crimes but who resigned before he could be impeached, and as soon as he resigned, he was pardoned by his successor Gerald Ford.
So we never had a trial. We never had a test as we are having with Donald Trump. And we are not talking about one case, but multiple cases.
