Thank you for writing such a well-stated response and for including numerous sources. I think our disagreement is really about what the precedents prove or don’t prove. My point is that in all previous cases tax records were provided voluntarily before the case was argued before the Supreme Court. Unless my searches were inadequate I could not find a case where the Supreme Court ruled the President had to turn over his tax records. That’s because most if not all other Presidents since 1932 had already made their tax records public. If push comes to shove, I suspect the Supreme Court will tell the Legislative branch it is overreaching and violating prerogatives of a coequal branch and is also violating the 4th and 5th Amendments. But you may be right and they will support the demand for tax returns. We’ll see.
