    Default Federal judge blocks California law requiring Trump tax returns

    A federal judge issued a temporary injunction against a California state law that requires presidential candidates to disclose their tax returns to appear on the primary ballot.

    President Trump's lawyers and the Republican National Committee had challenged the law.

    U.S. District Judge Morrison England Jr., a George W. Bush appointee on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California, said there would be "irreparable harm without temporary relief" for Trump and other candidates if he did not make the rare temporary decision to block the law, The Los Angeles Times reported.

    The California law, which was signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), requires candidates for president or governor to provide five years of federal tax returns to appear on the state's primary ballot.

    The judge's decision came after a hearing on Thursday in Sacramento on consolidated arguments made in five lawsuits over the California law. During the hearing, England focused on the issue of whether a federal financial disclosure law preempts states from imposing additional rules, the Times reported.

    A lawyer for California argued that different states already have different rules for their primary elections, while a lawyer for Trump argued that the U.S. Constitution established rules for running for president that states cannot alter, according to the Times.

    Trump attorney Jay Sekulow praised the judge's decision.

    ďWe are encouraged that the federal court has tentatively concluded that a preliminary injunction should be granted. We look forward to the courtís written order," he said in a statement. "It remains our position that the law is unconstitutional because states are not permitted to add additional requirements for candidates for president, and that the law violated citizensí 1st Amendment right of association."

    Because it is NONE of your fucking business lunatic. Because unless he is under some criminal investigation, which he is not, it is NONE of California's business either.

    The Constitution; read it.

    Again, you keep making that lie filled claim and when challenged to prove what crimes Trump has committed, come up empty handed. Are you mentally retarded? You have to be to be this stupid.

    Tell us again, why does Trump feel the need breaking precedent to make sure no one ever sees his income tax returns?

    Tell us again why Trump must be compelled to do something he is not Constitutionally required to do?

    Good. Completely unconstitutional law and an invasion of privacy.
