With all of this impeachment talk it is easy to lose sight of some of these lawsuits that might destroy Trump as well.

A federal appeals court ruled Monday that President Donald Trump’s tax returns must be turned over to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, who had subpoenaed the documents from Trump’s accounting firm as part of an investigation into the pre-election payoffs to two women who alleged affairs with Trump.
Trump is likely to appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court. Trump had earlier lost the initial case before a federal district court.
The three-judge panel wrote in their decision that “any presidential immunity from state criminal process does not extend to investigative steps like the grand jury subpoena at issue here,” affirming the lower court’s ruling on that question.
Now historically the Supreme Court would not likely side with Trump on a case like this.
However Trump has worked hard to stack the deck in his favor so there are at least three or four of these jurors who will most definitely come down on his side.
That may leave the decision in the hands of Chief Justice John Roberts, and he may decide that the reputation of the Supreme Court is more important than the desires of one US president.
Here’s hoping he does the right thing.
