President blasts IRS, Democrats, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and SCOTUS in scathing letter decrying evisceration of rule of law.
President Donald Trump issued a blistering response slamming the Supreme Court decision Monday allowing a New York prosecutor to see his tax returns.
“The 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!” reads a statement released by The Office of Donald J. Trump.
The president is referring to a SCOTUS decision Monday declining to block the release of his tax returns to a New York grand jury.
While the president’s tax materials would be kept secret and out of public view (for the time being), Trump lashed out at the decision as a setback to the rule of law, blasting the IRS, Democrats, Gov. Andrew Cuomo and SCOTUS.
“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,” Trump wrote.
“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 president went on to criticize New York prosecutors employing law warfare, calling it “a threat to the very foundation of our liberty.”
“That’s what is done in third world countries,” Trump wrote, concluding, “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!”
In other distressing SCOTUS news, the Court on Monday declined to hear a dispute over whether absentee ballots received up to three days after Election Day in Pennsylvania was constitutional, with Justice Clarence Thomas issuing a scathing dissent criticizing 6 fellow justices.
