Although President Donald Trump won the dispute over complying with congressional subpoenas for his financial records, he wasn’t happy that he had to hand over his tax returns to the Manhattan district attorney.

President Donald Trump on Thursday called an effort to get his financial records “a political prosecution” by “corrupt New York” after the Supreme Court ruled investigators in the matter could move forward.
Writing in subsequent messages, Trump said, “We have a totally corrupt previous Administration, including a President and Vice President who spied on my campaign, AND GOT CAIGHT (sic)…and nothing happens to them. This crime was taking place even before my election, everyone knows it, and yet all are frozen stiff with fear.”
He also took a shot at the Senate Judiciary Committee, led by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), and Obama-era intelligence officials who spearheaded previous investigations into his administration: “No Republican Senate Judiciary response, NO ‘JUSTICE’, NO FBI, NO NOTHING. Major horror show REPORTS on Comey & McCabe, guilty as hell, nothing happens. Catch Obama & Biden cold, nothing. A 3 year, $45,000,000 Mueller HOAX, failed – investigated everything.”
Trump subsequently deleted the tweet before posting a message singling out former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden, writing, “We have a totally corrupt previous Administration, including a President and Vice President who spied on my campaign, AND GOT CAUGHT.”
Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito were the Court’s only two dissenters in the case between Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. and Trump’s accounting firm, Mazars.
In your opinion, which Supreme Court decision has the most significant implications?
- The ruling that Trump’s accounting firm must hand over financial records to Vance.
- The ruling that Congressional Democrats cannot obtain Trump’s tax returns.
- The ruling that half of Oklahoma, including Tulsa, is actually under Native American jurisdiction.
