Trump loses five consecutive judgments. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/10/07/trump-loses-new-york-court-fight-to-keep-his-tax-returns-secret.html

If I’m not mistaken Trump will now need to release any tax return requested by the House committee? As well as any documents pertaining to the other cases? The judges specific language along with comments made by Justice Robertson last year suggest to me that if Trump does get a day in court it will no go well.

I have no prediction or expectation but I am heartened that some people in authority still seem to have principles and backbone.

from a legal perspective, what happens when he refuses? can we throw a sitting president in jail? can we bar him from running again?

who cares if he refuses? He isn’t the only one with copies of his taxes.
His accounting firm, the IRS and Deutsche are asked to hand them over.

The remedy is impeachment and conviction by Congress.  After that, who knows.

Whether the president is immune to prosecution is immaterial as to whether employees at the IRS are immune to prosecution.
