The democrats will stop at nothing to disparage the President, and that includes attempting to rummage through his personal finances looking for something, anything, that will paint him in an unsavory light.
President Trump has said on several occasions that he would be willing to release his tax returns to the public if they weren’t under audit, as this was the advice given to him by his expansive legal team. And, of course he’s under audit. Donald Trump was a massively successful business magnate before taking the oath of office, and the IRS is going to pay special attention to those who have gamed the system so efficiently.
Still, the democrats push forward. The latest attempt to get their hands on the aforementioned tax returns comes to us today from Manhattan, where local lawmakers are now subpoenaing 8 years’ worth of Trump’s IRS documents.
State prosecutors in Manhattan have subpoenaed President Trump’s accounting firm to demand eight years of his personal and corporate tax returns, according to several people with knowledge of the matter.
The subpoena opens a new front in a wide-ranging effort to obtain copies of the president’s tax returns, which Mr. Trump initially said he would make public during the 2016 campaign but has since refused to disclose.
The subpoena was issued by the Manhattan district attorney’s office late last month, soon after it opened a criminal investigation into the role that the president and his family business played in hush-money payments made in the run-up to the election.
Those “hush money” payments were previously the focus of the “resistance” movement, who hung their hat on the untruths of Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.
Cohen is currently imprisoned after being found guilty of lying to Congress.
