Democrats aren’t giving up. They’re going to hurt Trump regardless of how much damage it does to our country in the meantime.
According to the New York Times, Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. has just SUBPOENAED eight years worth of President Donald Trump’s tax returns and corporate income tax returns – and this is in spite of the fact that one of Trump’s tax returns was released showing that he payed more taxes than even most Democrats.
Because this isn’t about taxes. It’s about trying to stretch out the Stormy Daniels controversy as long as possible to humiliate Trump while he’s in office.
The Times reported:
“The investigation by Mr. Vance has been focused on $130,000 that Mr. Cohen paid Ms. Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, just before the election. Mr. Cohen pleaded guilty last year to breaking federal campaign finance laws and received a three-year prison sentence.”
Apparently, Trump’s former lawyer-turned-snitch Michael Cohen made payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal during the 2016 presidential election so they wouldn’t disrupt the campaign – and now, Manhatten’s district attorney wants them.
It’s not clear if the DA has Trump’s tax returns or not.
Even if the Manhattan DA obtained Trump’s tax returns, they may not be released to the public because they could be covered in secrecy rules that protect grand jury material.
However, Trump’s documents could be made public if they are used as evidence in a criminal case – which is pretty unlikely at this point.
Still, the Constitution does not require United States presidents to release their Tax Returns to the public to hold office. This means that it is Trump’s privilege to keep them secret if he wants.
Sadly, Democrats are going to pressure him to release them, because they want to humiliate him as much as they can.
Honestly, this is just an abuse of power by Democrats who want to slander a president of an opposing political party right before the next presidential election. It’s disgraceful.
