Manhattan DA Gets Trump’s Tax Return As Probe Continues


OPINION: This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion








Donald Trump is in a precarious position and could even be facing time in prison if Democrats have their way.

The Manhattan New York District Attorney Cy Vance has obtained millions of pages of Trump’s tax returns as he continues his witch hunt, The Daily Mail reported.

Cy Vance’s office spokesman, Danny Frost, said it had received the documents within hours of the Supreme Court refusing to hear Trump’s attempt to keep the records from them.

They were handed over by his longtime accounting firm Mazars, which had promised to comply with the subpoena as soon as it was upheld by the courts.

Vance’s prosecutors are investigating whether Trump committed tax fraud through inflating the value of his properties to get loans and deflating them for tax purposes, and are also believed to still be investigating hush-money payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal over their claims of having sex with him.

In a three-word statement after the Supreme Court ruled on Monday, Vance said only: ‘The work continues.’

Vance is probing whether Trump and his company were engaged in defrauding schemes, tax fraud and insurance fraud including possibly providing false information to banks or financial organizations about the value of some of his buildings and assets.

But Trump is furious with both the Supreme Court’s decision and with the investigation by Vance which he sees as a “fishing expedition.”

“This 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. It just never ends!” the 45th President of the United States said.

“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,” Trump said.

“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!” he said.
