Supreme Court won’t prevent Manhattan DA from obtaining Trump’s tax returns

The Supreme Court on Monday declined to block Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. from obtaining former President Donald Trump’s tax returns, The Hill reported.  

Trump released a statement later on Monday condemning the decision. However, if his critics were expecting to hear the former president take a defeated tone, they were likely disappointed. “The Supreme Court never should have let this ‘fishing expedition’ happen, but they did,” Trump said.

He continued, “This is something which has never happened to a President before, it is all Democrat-inspired in a totally Democrat location, New York City and State, completely controlled and dominated by a heavily reported enemy of mine, Governor Andrew Cuomo.”

“I will fight on”

Trump insisted that despite this defeat, “We 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.

The former president called Vance’s investigation “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’s efforts to obtain the former president’s tax records go back to 2019 when a New York grand jury subpoenaed his accounting firm, Mazars USA, for eight years of Trump’s personal and business tax returns, The Hill reported.

Supreme Court gives no comment

Part of the case revolves around alleged pay-offs to adult film star Stormy Daniels and other women who were said to have been funneled payments through former Trump attorney Michael Cohen.

Cohen, who has since pleaded guilty to a slew of federal crimes, said that the cash was paid to silence the women in order to protect Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Also at issue are allegations by Vance’s office that Trump’s real estate firm, the Trump Organization, may have engaged in financial impropriety.

According to Fox News, parties to the case filed their final written briefs in October, but the Supreme Court opted not to make its decision until after Trump left office.

The Supreme Court offered no comments or noted dissents with the order, Fox reported.

      1. How about John Roberts and Pelosi’s and Obama’s and Clinton’s…..

        That will be a proper result; I think any states that are GOP controlled should do the same to any Snr Democrat who has investments in their state; it is time to STOP being nice to the Democrats, they take it for weakness.

      2. I think all elected officials tax returns need to be made available to the public all members of congress, Senate, House of Representatives House speakers, governors, state representatives etc. this way there is not officials who gets paid by Americans tax dollars left out of the showing of their tax returns made public on their web site. They all made a big sink about President Trumps now I would like to make it law they all show there every year

    1. I AGREE TOTALLY!! Let AMERICANS SEEK TRANSPARENCY OF ALL NEW YORK’S ELECTED OFFICIALS’S TAX DOCUMENTS TO DETERMINE LEGAL PERCEPTIONS OF CORRUPTION! NEW YORK GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS SHOULD CLEANUP THEIR “OWN BACKYARD “

  1. Yes. Ask to see All politicians Tax Returns. Let’s see how they enriched there lives thoroughly with there corruption and lives Again let’s see how they spent it!
    What the left is doing is corrupt not constitutional! Left is destroying American!

    1. How about Joe Biden & son Hunter and Nancy Pelosi , must be investigated their tax returns ! 🤣

      1. ”ALL” OF THEM SHOULD HAVE THEIR TAX RETURNS INVESTIGATED IF THEY THINK THEY HAVE A RIGHT TO SINGLE OUT PRESIDENT TRUMP! OBAMA, BIDEN, CLINTON, PELOSI, MCCONNELL, SOROS, KERRY, ETC! WHAT’S GOOD FOR THE GANDER IS GOOD FOR THE GOOSE!!! HOWEVER IT IS ”NOT”A REQUIREMENT AND DO NOT THINK IT’S ANYONES BUSINESS TO DELVE INTO THE PRIVATE LIFE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP!

    2. You have got it right! Everything evil was introduced by Democrats. Abortion, LGBT ‘rights” that trump everyone else’s, especially kids’ rights to a safe upbringing. The attempt to negate marriage so that people can just mate willy-nilly like animals with no respect toward responsibility to one another, much less the babies they conceive! The Communist preaching students –our kids who went to secular universities and were brainwashed and came home voting for Communism and hating their parents. The irresponsible actions to remove protections from people of faith to force them against their genuine convictions to participate in things they believe are wrong. The Democrats seem to be on the side of evil and the destruction of America.

    3. I’d like to see PELOSI’s tax returns. She is reportedly worth more than 100 million dollars….can we say CORRUPTION???

  3. They should ask for all the elected officials from the President right on down the a county clerk. I don’t see why they would need his tax returns, just another witch hunt and something else to try and divide our great country

  4. They are mad because Trump took his legal deductions and saved money by doing it. If they want him to pay more then change the laws. Who of us does not take all the deductions we are entitled to take? As Trump said he followed the law.

  5. The newly appointed justices Barrett and Kavanaugh turned out to be real duds. These two also declined to hear the PA vote inquiry. What does the left have on these two?

  6. Well if the Democrats are going to play dirty, court order J Biden and N.Pelosi,C Schumer to produce their tax papers tib for tat.I am really disapointed the Supreme Court has John Roberts on down as cowards Roberts is suppose to be the spokeman for them,but all he has done is collect his pay check, nothing else. What use is the suppreme court if all they do is fold their hands?

  7. Trump is no longer president he is no longer in office so what gives them the authority to look at his private taxes? I have no doubt that Trump hires a firm to do his taxes and he just signs on the dotted line and pays taxes if he has to or gets a refund if that’s what’s allowed. Trump himself is not doing his taxes so why bother? It’s a witch hunt.

  8. What does the Manhattan DA need with President Trump’s tax returns. Not a dang thing!!! The Supreme Court did not make the correct ruling on this issue. President Trump is now a private citizen and no one needs his tax returns!!!

  9. The do-nothing SCOTUS only appears to be working to aid the Liberal Left! They sat on their hands when asked to look @the cases brought to them concerning the Election and the Texas case and everything brought before them, by the Trump Team! Looks like their in-the-tank for the Dems, as they didn’t hesitate to order Trump to reveal his tax returns! What about Joe and Hunter Biden’s shenanigans concerning China? In exchange for all the money the Biden’s attained, why are they not being made to do the same? Exactly what info. did they give to China, and why isn’t anyone asking these questions and demanding answers? What is supreme about the Supreme Court, that seems to be interested only, in appeasing the Party of Corruption?

  10. For all the good they don’t do SCOTUS might as well be the empty seats shown in the picture. We have only Alito and Thomas as real judges. The rest have been bought and paid for most likely.

  11. Looking at the stupidity of judges Barrett and Kavanaugh you feel so betrayed by these two “jerks” so glad 🙂 their not my parents whose own children they also betrayed Maybe. Amy needed to learn to take a few notes to learn how to be a Judge
