Trump Sues California To Block Tax Returns/Ballot Law

The Associated Press reports:

The Trump campaign and Republican Party sued California on Tuesday over a new law requiring presidential candidates to release their tax returns to run in the state’s primary. One of the suits contends California’s law is “a naked political attack against the sitting President of the United States.”

The law signed last week by Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom is aimed at prying loose President Donald Trump’s tax returns, which he has refused to release, saying they are under audit.

California’s law requires candidates for president and governor to release five years of tax returns to appear on the state’s primary ballot. It does not include a similar requirement for the general election.
