The Supreme Court has decided that a politically-motivated investigation into Donald Trump’s taxes may continue. Though SCOTUS is shutting down President Trump’s election-related lawsuits left and right even when there is plenty of evidence to back them, the high court found time to expose the President’s intimate financial affairs to scrutiny.
With Donald Trump seemingly prepping for a 2020 run for President, liberals are looking for any ammo they can use against him. And for years, they have attempted to pry into his financial affairs whenever they are having trouble finding ammunition to use against him.
The Court’s decision will give a state prosecutor and, presumably, a grand jury, access to all of the President’s finances. While the documents will allegedly remain secret, the President is right to be concerned. Deep State plants have absolutely leaked his private conversations and other information in the past.
Trump’s attorneys have argued that the subpoena to obtain his tax records is overbroad and issued in bad faith. But the Supreme Court under Joe Biden doesn’t care about any of that. “The subpoena is geographically sprawling, temporally expansive, and topically unlimited –all attributes that raise suspicions of an unlawful fishing expedition,” Trump attorney William Consovoy says. “Even if disclosure is confined to the grand jury and prosecutors,” he said “once the documents are surrendered” confidentially “will be lost for all time.”
Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance celebrated the decision on Twitter:
The documents are related to the alleged hush money payments former Trump attorney Michael Cohen allegedly made to two women. “The Supreme Court never should have let this ‘fishing expedition’ happen, but they did,” President Trump said after the decision, calling it “a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country.”
It’s unclear when the Left will stop focusing on President Trump, but this is becoming tiresome.
