On Monday the Supreme Court decided to put blinders on instead of halting the turnover of Trump’s personal and corporate tax returns to Manhattan District Attorney, Cyrus Vance Jr. Trump’s lawyers were requesting the justices put the lower court ruling on hold while they considered whether to take up the appeal. This request was denied.
Under state law, materials turned over to a grand jury must be kept secret, but I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before an anonymous source sends copies of EVERYTHING to CNN. Just call me Miss Cleo.
Cyrus Vance Jr. claims to be seeking the tax returns covering an eight-year period for a grand jury investigation of alleged hush-money payments and other financial transactions. He has disclosed very little about what motivated him to demand the records but in one court filing last year, prosecutors said they were justified in requesting them due to “possibly extensive and protracted criminal conduct at the Trump Organization.”
“Its near limitless reach-in time, scope, and geographic reach has all the hallmarks of a fishing expedition,” (Trump’s) lawyers told the Supreme Court. “And the fact that the subpoena was issued to a third-party custodian while tensions were running high between the Trump Organization and the district attorney, and for dubious reasons of efficiency, only makes the allegation of bad faith that much more plausible.”
Whether inspired by actual evidence or just a fishing expedition, these actions only serve to remind me of how terrified everyone seems to be of Trump’s very existence. I can’t help but wonder if any of the information found will somehow be twisted into a reason for the left to claim that Trump should not be allowed to run for any office again.
Like recent actions by House Democrats to prevent twice impeached Presidents from being buried in Arlington National Cemetery. Talk about living rent-free in someone’s head! Jeez.
TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) is alive and well, thriving in the heads of leftists who apparently don’t have anything better to do in their lives. I’d be amused if I wasn’t so annoyed by the gutless, nutless conservative politicians, reporters, and judges who are letting these agendas run wild.
