The U.S. Supreme Court had a great day on Monday.
That is, if you count dismantling what remains of our constitutional republic as ‘good.’
And a majority of justices obviously do.
A locally elected punk Democratic ‘prosecutor’ in New York City, Cyrus Vance Jr., has been trying to get former President Donald Trump’s tax returns.
He doesn’t really need them for a case; he just wants them because he’s a Democrat and Democrats were never successful in getting Trump to release them while he was president.
He doesn’t have to, mind you; there is no legal or constitutional requirement for presidents to disclose their tax returns.
But now, apparently, there is — at least if you’re a Democrat looking to expose a Republican president.
And no — a new constitutional amendment wasn’t ratified requiring presidential tax disclosures that you didn’t hear about.
Well, our former president, always a fighter, wasn’t going to let that atrocious decision drop without saying something:
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. 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!
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. 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!”
Americans who think this kind of abuse by elected officials of a fellow citizen is okay is the primary reason why we, as a people, are hopelessly divided and should start thinking about how we’re going our own way.
There is no unifying with people who think government officials should emulate gangsters and mobsters as long as it’s against a political opponent.
