There are no shortage of ways in which the liberal left has attempted to disparage Donald Trump during his first term in office, but the President has been responsive and unwavering in his opposition to such attacks.
The left’s latest foible is nothing new, as the district attorney for Manhattan has gone back to the old democratic standby of attempting to gain access to the Commander in Chief’s tax returns. For what it’s worth, the President has indicated that he would be willing to release these documents once they are no longer under audit by the IRS.
This, of course, wasn’t good enough for the liberal leadership, who are demanding that the President eschew the advice of his lawyers in order to allow lawmakers to pry into his personal finances.
As the Manhattan case heats up, Trump is turning litigious.
Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow says the lawsuit is intended “to address the significant constitutional issues at stake in this case.”
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. recently subpoenaed Trump’s accounting firm for eight years of his state and federal tax returns.
Vance also has subpoenaed the Trump Organization for records related to payments former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen helped arrange to a porn actress who claimed she had an affair with Trump.
What the democratic party hopes to glean from the Trump tax returns is not yet clear.
Some seem to believe that the documents will shed light on the President’s alleged relationship with Russian government agents, further extrapolating on the already long-winded and convoluted “RussiaGate” conspiracy theory.
