Trump Slams SCOTUS Tax Return Decision

Former President Trump slammed the Supreme Court’s decision to reject halting turning over his tax returns to Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. who’s been seeking Trump’s tax record since 2019. Trump called the SCOTUS decision a “continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our country.”

In a statement, Trump said that despite the years-long “witch hunt” against him that he’s confident he will win.

“I will fight on, just as I have, for the last five years (even before I was successfully elected), despite all of the election crimes that were committed against me,” he said. “We will win!”

Fox News reports:

Trump’s tax records are not supposed to become public as part of prosecutor’s criminal investigation, but the high court’s action is a blow to Trump because he has for so long fought on so many fronts to keep his tax records shielded from view. The ongoing investigation the records are part of could also become an issue for Trump in his life after the presidency. Trump has called it “a fishing expedition” and “a continuation of the witch hunt.”

“It never ends!” Trump said. “So now, for more than two years, New York City has been looking at almost every transaction I’ve ever done, including seeking tax returns which were done by among the biggest and most prestigious law and accounting firms in the U.S.”

The former president said that “the new phenomenon of ‘headhunting’ prosecutors and AGs—who try to take down their political opponents using the law as a weapon—is a threat to the very foundation of our liberty.”

“That’s what is done in third world countries,” he continued. “Even worse are those who run for prosecutorial or attorney general offices in far-left states and jurisdictions pledging to take out a political opponent.”Trump added: “That’s fascism, not justice—and that is exactly what they are trying to do with respect to me, except that the people of our Country won’t stand for it.”

Vance subpoenaed the records from the Mazars accounting firm which has worked with Trump and his businesses for years. Mazars has said it would comply with the subpoena, but Trump sued to block the records’ release.

Apparently you aren’t very smart or can’t read those lawsuits weren’t filed by Trump they were filed by other groups. They also weren’t thrown out for lack of evidence, they were tossed for standing ya moron.

The Supreme Court can not be bothered to investigate election fraud and protect our (Constitutional) voting process! The court’s function / sworn duty is to uphold the Constitution. They have become part of a partisan ongoing witch hunt (even after 5 years and wasting millions of taxpayer dollars that found nothing!). If they demand President Trump’s tax returns then Pelosie, Shummer and yes – the entire Biden family’s tax returns should be investigated. The law should be applied equally.

They are not interested in LIBS taxes!! Most of them have NEVER PAID them!! Most of obama’s Appointees were yrs behind on their TAXES and had to PAY THEM UP before they could assume the roles that obama appointed them for!! The one he put in charge of Finances was three yrs behind in his Taxes!!!
It has DRIVEN THE LIBS NUTS because PRESIDENT TRUMP would NOT turn over his taxes to them! Which BY LAW HE DID NOT HAVE TO!! LAW!!! Something that LIBS NEVER FOLLOW!!!

Are not federal taxes a matter for the IRS? And are not State taxes a matter of the appropriate State tax authorities? If they do not identify anything amiss with those filings why should any other authority have any concern? I personally don’t care.

If President Trump had violated any laws in his taxes that would have been revealed long before now. The press will nit pick and make issues over things that are not only legal but that they do not understand These returns should be confidential and are no ones business. Tax laws are so complex that I sometimes don’t understand my own returns.

In this country you have to know of a crime before you ask for things like tax returns. You don’t ask for them to try and find a crime. Besides that people come to terms with settlements all the time so why is it different because it was him. The answer is HATE!!!!
