DOJ/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP TAXES: “U.S. District Court Judge Trevor McFadden suggested it was strange that last July — about six months after President Joe Biden was sworn in — the Justice Department concluded the Treasury Department was legally obligated to turn over Trump’s tax returns to the House.

That opinion reversed one DOJ issued in 2019 authorizing the Treasury Department to withhold the returns.

McFadden, a Trump appointee, implied that the reversal was driven by politics and he said the new stance might dictate that Congress could be entitled not only to Biden’s returns — which have already been made public — but even the taxes filed by Biden’s son Hunter.”
