The Supreme Court issued two decisions today over Trump’s financial records. In the first, Vance, the court ruled that a far-left grand jury can get President Trump’s tax returns for a criminal investigation but in the second, Mazars USA, the court ruled that the three House committees do not have the right to those records for a fishing expedition.
The question is how long before Trump’s records will be leaked to congress or the left-wing media.
We know it’s going to happen but what recourse Trump has in a case like this we don’t yet know. Cyrus Vance has the ethics of an alley cat.
The Mazars’ decision should have had limits. They should have to prove that there was a crime before they got the information or stringent penalties laid out in case of leaking.
Vance now has permission to garner 8 years of Trump’s financial records along with his income tax returns.
Vance is investigating payoffs to two women who made accusations against Trump. If he paid for them himself, they are not illegal.
Vance’s office is looking into payments made to silence two women who allege they had affairs with Trump, including adult-film star Stormy Daniels, before he became president.
Trump’s former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen is serving a prison term in part for his role in the payoff scheme, which violated campaign finance laws and which Cohen said he conducted at the direction of Trump to influence the 2016 presidential election.
Trump has denied any wrongdoing and his private attorneys filed multiple lawsuits to prevent Mazars and two additional third-party financial institutions — Deutsche Bank and Capital One — from disclosing Trump’s financial records.
