It would seem logical that President Trump would have hired the best tax accounting firm that money could buy.
His long-term accounting firm is Mazars LLP,
As stated in the video by several of the Supreme Court Justices who would be required to hear the case if they choose to hear it at all, that they are siding with the president not with just this case but to put forth legal precedent for the future.

President Trump argued on Thursday that two Supreme Court rulings on his tax records are part of a double-standard in which he’s persecuted while “totally corrupt” Obama administration officials go unpunished.
“We have a totally corrupt previous Administration, including a President and Vice President who spied on my campaign, AND GOT CAIGHT…and nothing happens to them,” Mr. Trump said in a series of tweets less than an hour after the high court’s rulings.
”This is about PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT.
President Trump: “We catch the other side SPYING on my campaign, the biggest political crime and scandal in U.S. history, and NOTHING HAPPENS.”
The Supreme Court ruled that a New York district attorney can obtain Mr. Trump’s financial records in a criminal probe, rejecting the president’s claim of absolute immunity in criminal prosecutions. In a separate ruling, the high court blocked Congress from getting Mr. Trump’s tax records, sending the matter back to a lower court.
Despite the president’s objections, the White House called the rulings “a big win” for Mr. Trump. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the justices in the New York case “laid out a road map” for the president to challenge a subpoena on various legal grounds in state court.
Ms. McEnany said Mr. Trump “still maintains his initial position” that a president should be immune from prosecution while in office. But she said the president will abide by the rulings.
Further evidence of Nancy Pelosi’s obstreperous behavior was his insistence on bringing the issue before her seditious House of Representatives.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday firmly rejected President Donald Trump’s argument for sweeping presidential immunity and ruled that a New York prosecutor can obtain his financial records but prevented – at least for now – Democratic-led House of Representatives committees from getting similar documents.
Both 7-2 rulings were authored by conservative Chief Justice John Roberts.
The court made it clear that a sitting president cannot evade a criminal investigation, ruling that the subpoena issued to Trump’s long-term accounting firm, Mazars LLP, for various financial records to be available for future criminal proceedings. HA
She did the same thing last year to no avail.
