On Monday, the Supreme Court ordered former President Donald Trump’s accountants to releases financial and tax records to prosecutors in New York.
The former president responded in a lengthy statement, calling the ruling “a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country.”
FULL TEXT: ‘STATEMENT ON THE CONTINUING POLITICAL PERSECUTION OF PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP’
“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!
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!”

Perhaps a member of the family will intervene and get him the help he so desperately needs….there are professional interventions available, even at his advanced age.
Point is, politically speaking, guilty Cuomo can turn this into a false Trump vs Cuomo frame…instead of reality: NY vs Cuomo…
BREAKING? This is a former President, for goodness sake.
Why is he still making headlines? Has Biden done nothing today?
The Hungarians say if you have butter on your head, don’t go under the sun, meaning if you have something to hide, don’t reveal it.
How many times did he promise to release them himself…?
Most transparent president ever…
If the Trump taxes are in order he should welcome the opportunity to prove that he’s done nothing wrong. I, for one have nothing to hide and would gladly provide my tax returns to any investigation.
I didn’t & still don’t LOVE him, but I think that this is already taking the P..S,
Stop it already,
But, we all known that the Bully in the class will always be Bullied in return, & THAT’S WHAT HE WAS/IS/WILL ALWAYS BE,
Though I really & truly feel bad for this right honourable gentleman
If the DA wants my tax returns she can have them. I have nothing to hide. I pay my taxes and don’t use abusive tax shelters.
And the Republican base is somehow still enamored with him. I mean the “crazy nancy” “witchhunt” and Donald Trump third-person thing is getting kinda stale already.
