Former US President Donald Trump has to turn over his tax returns to a congressional committee, a federal appeals court ruled.

The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit rejected Trump's appeal of a lower court's ruling allowing the tax returns to be sent to the House Committee on Ways and Means.

The committee said in a tweet it expects to receive the tax returns and audit files requested immediately. Dylan Peachey, a spokeswoman for the committee, said additional details would be released soon...

At first I thought nothing was going to happen to Trump. Traditionally, politicians above a certain level (President, VP, Speaker of the House, Senate pro temp, senior senators, don't get touched. There was this unsaid agreement between the 2 parties. Nixon's crimes were too big to avoid. Reagan and Iran Contra is part of this. This ended in the '90s with the Republicans going after Clinton for lying in a private lawsuit about getting his dick sucked. 

Republicans attempting to impeach him ended that unsaid agreement. It ended on one side. The Dems still adhered to it. Bush could easily have been impeached. But they didn't. One other reason is the Dems are scared of the Republicans. Republicans have no problem in getting into the mud and making it messy. They simply have no line. There are no Marquis of Queensbury rules with them. 

The Dems are corrupt traditionally. Many politicians globally are corrupt that way. Just don't go overboard. The election of Trump signaled to the rest of us that the Republicans are completely gone over the deep end. They will excuse and exonerate anyone and any act as long as their man is in charge. There is no line that we can see so far. None. And the Dems are scared of that. 

It's a certainty that the Republicans will go after any Dem for anything when they get power over the House in November. Things that both parties do that is corrupt but "acceptable" corruption is now going to have congressional investigations. 

Just another sign. The government in its present incarnation can not function well enough to run a country this size. It doesn't matter if its good for everyone, all Americans, the Republicans won't vote for it if a Dem president proposes it. Unless they get some sort of quid pro quo. They want a quid pro quo for things they approve of because THEY didn't propose it and won't get credit for it.

More chance of meeting an infected person in the USA than most of the countries on the list, only Germany, Spain and UK has more cause per capita than USA.

I can't find the link today, but I did see a government somewhere, giving it's citizens advice on Monkey Pox which included this important instruction:

"Don't attack Monkeys".

I thought so too, but I hoped against hope. 

Mind you, the game is not yet over, I will say one thing for Trump, he doesn't give up.
