On this week’s Versus Trump, Jason and Charlie discuss the major recent decision dismissing the President's attempt to block his accounting firm from turning over his tax returns to the Manhattan DA. The two talk about both aspects of the decision: first, whether a federal court should abstain from hearing this dispute out of respect for "comity" (hence the title); and second, whether the President is categorically immune from any amount of criminal process. They agree with the court in one respect and disagree in another.
