The California Supreme Court on Thursday struck down a state law that
would have required President Trump to release his tax returns in order to
appear on the state’s primary ballot.

Justices in Sacramento said that the law – which required all candidates
for president and governor to submit five years’ worth of personal income
tax returns in order to be included on primary ballots – was
unconstitutional.

“Whatever authority the Legislature may have in defining how presidential
primaries are to occur in this state, the challenged sections of the act
exceed such authority and are unenforceable,” California Supreme Court
Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye wrote in the opinion.

Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, had signed the bill into law in July.

The state Republican Party and Chairwoman Jessica Millan Patterson
challenged the bill, while the state has defended the law by arguing tax
returns are a simple way for voters to weigh candidates’ financial status.

The ruling by the state’s highest court – which is a rare win for Trump in
the Democratically controlled state – comes more than a month-and-a-half
after a federal judge temporarily blocked the state law in response to a
different lawsuit.

California Secretary of State Alex Padilla appealed the federal judge’s
ruling, in a legal dispute that remains ongoing. The state court’s
decision, however, means the tax return requirement cannot be enforced,
even if it were found to be constitutional under federal law.

Jesse Melgar, the governor’s spokeswoman, previously told the Los Angeles
Times that Newsom supported an appeal, adding: “States have a legal and
moral duty to restore public confidence in government and ensure leaders
seeking the highest offices meet minimal standards.”

The deadline for submitting tax returns to get on the primary ballot under
the bill, though, is next week.

Under California’s so-called jungle primary system, all candidates,
regardless of party, vie for the same elected office and the top two vote-
getters move on to the general election. Since it was implemented in
California in 2010, this system has often ensured a Democrat-vs.-Democrat
general election battle in all but California’s most conservative areas.

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.

The Obama-led Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS)
approved Uranium One in fall 2010. With a little luck, we'll see
compulsive liar Hillary Clinton in jail before she dies.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp.

Obama increased total debt from $10 trillion to $20 trillion in the eight
years he was in office, and sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood queer
liberal democrat donors.

are constitutional guarantees or protections, but no rights.

The Supreme Court has deferred issuing a definitive ruling on whether
congressional committees can have access to President Trump's financial
records, throwing the issue back to the lower courts in a move blocking
Congress from getting the records at this time.

The 7-2 decision Thursday sidesteps a politically-charged election-year
dispute that could have a major long-term impact over the extent
presidents and their top advisers can be shielded from Capitol Hill
investigations while in office.

"Without limits on its subpoena powers, Congress could 'exert an imperious
controul' over the Executive Branch and aggrandize itself at the
President’s expense, just as the Framers feared," Chief Justice John
Roberts wrote in the court's opinion.

The ruling deals with two cases that were consolidated. In one, the House
Oversight Committee subpoenaed accounting firm Mazars USA for access to a
slew of Trump’s financial documents from 2011 to 2018, including personal
records and records of various affiliated businesses and entities. These
included the president's long-sought-after tax returns.

In a second case, the House Financial Services and Intelligence Committees
subpoenaed records from Deutsche Bank, and the Financial Service Committee
also subpoenaed Capital One. While both banks have various financial
records related to Trump and his businesses, neither possesses his tax
returns.

Throughout the litigation of these cases, a main issue was whether the
House committees had the requisite legitimate legislative purpose required
to access such records. In Thursday's ruling the Supreme Court recognized
that the fact that the president is involved makes the case far more
complex, and without precedent.

"Indeed, from President Washington until now, we have never considered a
dispute over a congressional subpoena for the President’s records,"
Roberts wrote. "And, according to the parties, the appellate courts have
addressed such a subpoena only once, when a Senate committee subpoenaed
President Nixon during the Watergate scandal. ... In that case, the court
refused to enforce the subpoena, and the Senate did not seek review by
this Court."

Roberts said that historically, disputes like this between the executive
and legislative branches would be settled without litigation.

"For more than two centuries, the political branches have resolved
information disputes using the wide variety of means that the Constitution
puts at their disposal," he wrote. "The nature of such interactions would
be transformed by judicial enforcement of either of the approaches
suggested by the parties, eroding a “[d]eeply embedded traditional way[]
of conducting government.”

While the majority ruled that the lower court decisions favoring the House
committees should vacated and the cases sent back down for further
consideration, Justice Clarence Thomas stated that the decisions should
have been reversed entirely.

"I would hold that Congress has no power to issue a legislative subpoena
for private, nonofficial documents—whether they belong to the President or
not," Thomas wrote in a dissenting opinion.

Justice Samuel Alito also disagreed with the court's ruling, but took a
softer approach than Thomas. While stating that he believes "such
subpoenas are not categorically barred," the House did not adequately
illustrate their legislative needs for the subpoenas.

"[L]egislative subpoenas for a President’s personal documents are
inherently suspicious," he said, asserting that such documents "are seldom
of any special value in considering potential legislation."

Also Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled in a case where Manhattan
prosecutors are seeking Trump's tax returns that the president lacks broad
immunity from such investigation but sent the case back down to a lower
court rather than allowing prosecutors to enforce a grand jury subpoena
for the documents right away.

"We are pleased that in the decisions issued today, the Supreme Court has
temporarily blocked both Congress and New York prosecutors from obtaining
the President’s tax records," said Jay Sekulow, counsel to the president.
"We will now proceed to raise additional Constitutional and legal issues
in the lower courts.”

Fox News' Shannon Bream, Bill Mears and John Roberts contributed to this
report.
