President Trump has suffered a major personal defeat at the hands of a Supreme Court filled with three justices he appointed.
In a rather shocking and significant decision, the Supreme Court ruled that it will not halt the turning over of Trump’s tax returns to New York prosecutors.
New York prosecutors have been waiting on this decision for years, and now they are finally getting what they want.
Just Another Witch Hunt
How damaging this will be to Trump remains to be seen.
Trump, however, continues to maintain that this is nothing more than a “fishing expedition” and a “continuation of the witch hunt – the greatest witch hunt in history.”
Of note in the ruling is that New York prosecutors are not permitted to make his tax returns public.
However, we all know that when it comes to Trump, the Democrat Party and Democrat-run justice departments are filled with leaks.
Trump has never been in trouble with the IRS, but that is not what this is all about.
Democrats want his tax records exposed so they can try to find something, anything, that they can use against Trump, be it using tax breaks or charitable contributions deemed not be enough for someone of his wealth.
For whatever reason, the Supreme Court has put off making this decision for years, as the case originated in 2019.
With Trump no longer the president, he loses all protections of the office, so that may be why this case has been kicking around on the docket for quite some time.
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has not yet announced when he will formally enforce the subpoena now that the Supreme Court says he can proceed.
I do not think it is going out on a limb to think that not long after those records get turned over that they will soon thereafter find their way into a reporter’s hands and made public.
If and when that happens, Biden’s new AG will have his first test to track down the leak and prosecute him or her appropriately… but I will not hold my breath on that one.
