Pandemic Diary Day 115: Supremes Rule: Split Decision on Trump's Taxes

Dear Diary,

There's a lot of people who have been waiting for three and a half years to see Trump's financial records and tax returns revealed.
The decisions are in!

In a 7-2 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that the Manhattan district attorney and Grand Jury can rule on Trump's taxes and financial informationThe case was remanded back to New York. Bad news for Trump because all of the lower courts ruled against him.

In another 7-2 decision the Supreme Court said Congress had to narrow down charges - essentially saying they were going on a fishing expedition. The case goes back to Congress who has to tighten up their requests in order to get approval.

It's not clear how much material will become public, since records would go to a confidential grand-jury investigation in New York.


America will finally see just what a crook and a liar Trump is.

His stonewalling will be explained; he's a cheater, and always has been according to his niece Mary who wrote a book - Too Much and Never Enough: How my Family Created the World's Most Dangerous Manabout how badly flawed Trump is.

I ordered an advance copy three days ago and will get delivery on July 28th. Looking forward to some interesting reading. It's supposed to hit the book stores next week on July 14th.

                On the Homefront - Medford, Oregon
Jackson County Public health reports
no new cases, staying put at 152.

Five more Oregonians died from COVID-19, bringing the total to 220, and 218 new cases were reported yesterday.

The state has now recorded 10, 605 cases of the disease. Right now the demand for testing is surging. We've done very little, which is troubling.

**Scratching my head
Home sales in the Rogue Valley and throughout the state are surging during this pandemic. I just don't get it.

**Some good news
Oregon gas prices will continue to stay low because of the lower demand. Hey! Every penny counts in a pandemic.
