Trump Slams Supreme Court, IRS, Dems for ‘Fishing Expedition’

Former President Donald Trump says the Supreme Court should never have allowed a “fishing expedition” by New York prosecutors intent on taking him down following the high court’s decision to allow the release of his tax returns to the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.

“The investigation is a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country, whether it was the never ending $32 million Mueller hoax, which already investigated everything that could possibly be investigated, “Russia Russia Russia,” where there was a finding of “No Collusion,” or two ridiculous “Crazy Nancy” inspired impeachment attempts where I was found NOT GUILTY,” Trump said in a statement released early Monday evening.

“It just never ends!”

Trump first sued to block a subpoena seeking his personal and corporate taxes in 2019. Monday’s Supreme Court ruling cleared the way for the DA’s office to obtain eight years’ worth of Trump’s tax returns and other financial records. The investigation is one of two known criminal investigations into Trump, who on Monday said Democrats were behind the efforts.

“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 Tea Party was treated far better by the IRS than Donald Trump,” he said.

“The Supreme Court never should have let this “fishing expedition” happen, but they did. 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. These are attacks by Democrats willing to do anything to stop the almost 75 million people (the most votes, by far, ever gotten by a sitting president) who voted for me in the election—an election which many people, and experts, feel that I won. I agree!”

Cyrus Vance, the Manhattan District Attorney, has been examining whether Trump, his company and its employees committed insurance, tax and banking fraud, among other crimes.

Vance is a Democrat.

“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,” Trump said.

“That’s what is done in third world countries. 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. 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.

“In the meantime, murders and violent crime are up in New York City by record numbers, and nothing is done about it. Our elected officials don’t care. All they focus on is the persecution of President Donald J. Trump.

“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. We will win!”
