SCOTUS hands Trump a defeat in NY tax return case

The U.S. Supreme Court is allowing the Democrats’ to continue in their pursuit of former President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

Breitbart reports that the U.S. Supreme Court has issued a decision that will allow a subpoena for Trump’s tax returns to continue. 

Background

Throughout his presidency, different groups of Democrats tried to obtain Trump’s tax return on the assumption that they will find some wrongdoing contained therein.

This particular Supreme Court ruling has to do with the investigation that is being led by prosecutors in New York City. Headed by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr., this investigation is said to be into whether Trump’s organization has committed insurance fraud or bank fraud.

As part of this investigation, Vance and his team have subpoenaed Trump’s tax returns. They are specifically looking to get their hands on about eight years of these documents and other financial records.

Trump and his legal team have been trying to fend off the subpoena in court. Their first try in a federal court failed back in August of 2020, and they failed again in October 2020 at the federal appellate court level.

This left the Supreme Court as Trump and his team’s last resort.

The latest

What Trump’s lawyers were asking the Supreme Court was for the justices to issue a stay for the subpoena. But, this week, the justices turned that request down.

“The Supreme Court has cleared the way for prosecutors in New York City to receive eight years of former President Donald Trump’s tax returns and other financial records as part of an ongoing investigation into possible tax, insurance, and bank fraud in Trump’s business empire,” Politico reports.

The Supreme Court justices, according to the outlet, did not explain their decision.

This is the second loss that Trump has experienced in this case at the U.S. Supreme Court level, as the justices in July of 2020 rejected Trump’s argument that he was immune from state and local criminal investigations as the U.S. president. But, this was Trump’s first loss in the case since conservative Justice Amy Coney Barrett joined the court. It appears that all of the justices were in agreement here.

The Supreme Court has thus given Vance the go-ahead to obtain Trump’s tax returns and financial statements. Considering that this is part of a grand jury investigation, the records would not be released publicly unless charges are brought against Trump and the tax returns are introduced as evidence.

  1. NY is a jungle. Mr. Vance is biased and should have been disbarred. The black prosecutor is trying to make a name for herself and also needs to be disbarred. All this crap when the corrupt governor has the blood of tens of thousands of New Yorkers on his hands. Best business now in NY state or city is the MOVING business….. Pack and leave….

    1. These dem o rats will never stop in their insanity to get “Trump” they keep on making up fake charges and throwing everything on the wall hoping that something will stick
      To bad that our REAL president will not be allowed to sue for false and frivolous charges

  2. Donald Trump is a private citizen and they have no evidence that there is any wrongdoing, just that they hope something will pop they can hold against him! This is absurd, with Andy no evidence.

    1. If the supreme court can do this to a private citizen, then maybe we the American people would like to see Polosi, Nadler, Maxine Watters, SHUMMER, AOC and who ever else we please, since it’s open season !!!

  4. And we NEVER proved WHO Obama is or was and we never saw a real birth certificate to prove if he was eligible to run for President. and we worry about Trumps taxes? how about all the billions “lost” by Obama, Hillary. Biden. Pelosi
    Al Sharpton?????etc etc oh I forgot they were Democrats it doesn’t count!

  5. “Injustice Gone Wild!” The USA is on the road to ruin! Unless the American people stand up to this, “Unjust Supreme Court Decsion,” we are doomed. We cannot sit down and let these, “Traitors” get away with this, travesty! When will, enough be enough? Every day another violation of our, Constitution! Biden and the Demo/Commies, move the country closer to becoming a, “Police State!” When will we, stop them? Will we ever? There must be something we can do, if anyone knows what, please let the American people know what we can do!

  6. This will only backfire on the Left.. THEY are the ones with so much criminal activity to hide…and now they’ve tried to say that Trump has done something wrong, but all his info will only show that he hasn’t..and these cabal people will be forced into exposure.. They’ve fallen into a nicely set trap.

  7. They are so dammed afraid of President Trump they will never give up
    trying to stop him from running again..They know that he will and he will win hands down. The American people are not as stupid as the left
    thinks they are. America is going to take them down the right way. They have shot themselves in thier butts this time with thier crooked ways.

  8. I do believe the Supreme Court is a rump rangering with the communist demwit party, with the exception of Clarence Thomas and the other dissenter. I just can’t understand how educated people can be born, live and raise families in a free country, then throw it all away for COMMUNISM !!!!! TEXAS– BECOME A NATION ALREADY !!!!!

  9. Has Joe Biden and his Family had their taxes checked out? He is the President now and if it is required of President Trump and his Family it certainly should be checked out for President Biden and his Family. Our rules and laws should not be selective. Personally I believe Congress and the Senate should also have their taxes checked out. Corruption after being in Congress and the Senate for many years could definitely be a great possibly. Did they check Obama’s taxes?

  10. This country is in big big trouble if the Supreme Court can obtain a private individuals tax returns to try to convict that person of criminal charges. What gives the Supreme Court that ability! Sad day. We no longer live in a free society. We live in a police state!!!

  11. RECALL THE THREE SUPREME COURT JUSTICES PRESIDENT TRUMP. WORKED SO HARD TO GET APPOINTED THEY REALLY ARE IDIOTS. PURE TRASH THE DEMOCRATS WERE RIGHT ABOUT ALL THREE OF THEM. JOHN ROBERTS THE PEDO MUST HAVE WARPED THEIR BRAINS THE MINUTE THEY GOT APPOINTED WE ARE PUKE SICK OF ALL THREE GET THEM OFF OUR HIGHEST COURT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!=

  12. We need to get the military behind us, and get these people out of our government, I can’t believthat the normal Democrats are behind them. I think we need a explanation why the Supreme Court are allowing this to happen to a private citizen, on another note , they are trying to push us into a war with this HR127 that’s why they are keeping the Capital locked down. !!!!

  13. If you’re still badgering Trump after taking everything from him why do you need his tax records.Biden and his son should show where the money they got went to or from.Nancy and all those rich people in Congress should make theirs known.Our country is in a mess and all you are worring about is Trump’s tax.I want to know why money is being sent overseas,used for arts when we have a pandemic.Why is abortion being funded by taxpayers.The two parties involved in the abortion should be made to pay for their abortion not taxpayers.

  14. Why in the world would the scotus have anything to do with this bogus ruling? Don’t they have other more important things to do, like immigration laws being broken, the senate trying to undermine the Constitution? Or maybe a little late, the bogus election of 2020? The scotus needs to remember their jobs and stay out of politics. This ruling was a disgrace.

  15. Our Supreme Court is corrupt. They are no longer necessary as they no longer do what they were elected to do. They are a joke and a sham.
