We want this. Audi Audi treats Americans to a rather wide variety of RS models, but there’s piece of forbidden fruit we’ve yet to taste. That’s the Audi RS6 Avant.While we don’t have confirmation the hot wagon will be heading our way, Audi is nearly ready to reveal it and teased the model on its German Facebook page this past Friday. According to the post, the brand plans to debut the wagon at its Audi City Berlin showroom locally this September. To be clear, Audi didn’t explicitly say this teaser shows the RS6 Avant, but there’s no denying the rear end and long roof on display here. Although cloaked in darkness and a sheet, Audi’s latest corporate taillight peeks through with a signature LED design. Compared to the current-generation RS6, the design should be rather evolutionary overall, but who are we kidding? It’s going to look gorgeous because it’s a sleek wagon. Preview • 2019 Audi RS5 Sportback: Performance without compromise 6:29 If the new RS6 Avant follows suit with the current car, it’ll pack a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 with around 650 horsepower. Should Audi Sport feel frisky, an electric motor part of a mild-hybrid system could push that figure even higher.Will Audi finally bring it to North America? All signs have pointed to that being the case. Audi previously told Motor Authority in February that the company is actively looking at bringing the RS6 Avant and standard A6 Avant to these shores with the next-generation models. The company has also previously encouraged fans to continue speaking out in favor of bringing the model to North America. Say it loud, say it proud: we want the RS6 Avant, Audi. 2018 Subaru Crosstrek: Just as good as before, only better Review • 2019 Audi RS5 Sportback review: Goody two-shoes Tags Now playing: Watch this: 2020 Subaru Outback first drive: Tech and trail mix 2019 Audi RS5 Sportback is a goody two-shoes Wagons Performance Cars 69 Photos Audilast_img read more

Emoluments Hearing Hints At What May Be At Stake Trumps Tax Returns

Posted on by

first_imgPaul J. Richards/AFP/Getty ImagesA lawsuit against President Trump alleges he is violating the Foreign and Domestic Emoluments clauses of the Constitution. Plaintiffs’ lawyer Deepak Gupta says Trump’s Washington hotel (above) is “an emoluments magnet.” Paul J. Richards/AFP/Getty ImagesIf there’s one thing President Trump‘s critics want from him, and he refuses to give up, it’s his tax returns.The returns didn’t come up during Wednesday’s hearing in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York in Manhattan. But the hearing was the first step in a process that could loosen Trump’s grip on them.If the next step goes the plaintiffs’ way, the case could make the president’s tax returns surface.Trump is being sued by four plaintiffs who allege he is violating anti-corruption provisions in the Constitution, namely, its Foreign and Domestic Emoluments clauses.If Judge George Daniels says the plaintiffs have legal standing to proceed with the suit, they then can seek internal financial documents, including those tax returns.“We will be looking for detailed financial records, foreign and domestic transactions, in the president’s businesses,” plaintiffs’ lawyer Joseph Sellers told reporters after the hearing. “If the tax returns turn out to be relevant we may seek them.”Trump is the only president since 1977 to withhold his tax returns from voluntary disclosure. Unlike recent presidents, he has also refused to comply voluntarily with the federal conflict-of-interest law. Doing so would have forced him to separate himself from the Trump business empire.The lawsuit comes from three plaintiffs in the hotel and restaurant industry, and one watchdog group, called Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.The Constitution’s clauses banning emoluments — that is, money and other favors — are meant to keep federal officials out of conflicts of interest.Plaintiffs’ lawyer Deepak Gupta told Daniels that Trump’s Washington hotel is “an emoluments magnet.” Its international business has been burgeoning, according to news reports.Justice Department lawyer Brett Shumate said the plaintiffs failed to show they have been injured by Trump hotels and restaurants, so they wouldn’t have legal standing.As the hearing wrapped up, Shumate opened a possible argument that presidents aren’t even covered by the Foreign Emoluments Clause.
