Democrats have been trying desperately to get their hands on the last several years of President Donald Trump’s tax returns.
Not because they would be able to understand what they are reading, but because they want political ammunition and anything they can use to defeat the president in the upcoming election.
But things kicked into overdrive after a bombshell Supreme Court notice just dropped — and Trump’s team confirmed his case is heading to our nation’s highest court.
Liberal New York prosecutors won a victory at the U.S. Second Circuit of Appeals last week to obtain Trump’s tax records.
Soon after the decision, the president’s lawyer, Jay Sekulow, said they are taking the case all the way to the Supreme Court.
“The decision of the Second Circuit will be taken to the Supreme Court. The issue raised in this case goes to the heart of our Republic. The constitutional issues are significant,” Sekulow said.
One America News Network reports:
New York prosecutors have continued to push President Trump to turn over his tax returns. However, the president and his lawyers have fought back. They say there is no requirement for him to release his financial records.
The president’s legal team is now taking the battle to the Supreme Court after a federal court in New York rejected their appeal to keep his tax returns private.
Democrat Manhattan district attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. is requesting the president turn over eight years worth of his corporate and personal tax returns.
The request is part of a criminal investigation into alleged hush money payments made to two women, who claim they had an affair with the president before he was elected.
Democrat politicians and attorneys have been after Trump’s tax records — specifically several years worth of returns — since before he became president.
There is currently no law requiring U.S. presidents or presidential candidates to release their tax returns, but Democrats apparently don’t care about the rule of law.
This is the latest example of how extreme liberals are hellbent to trigger a real constitutional crisis in what will be a high stakes show down with the administration.
Now that their Russian collusion conspiracy theories blew up in their face, Democrats are trying to use “Trump’s taxes” as their new strategy to win the 2020 election.
Just like in 2016, most see that it won’t work.
