Great news! The Supreme Court, in a one-word order (“denied”) rejected Donald Trump’s petitition to quash a subpoena against the Mazars accounting group for release of Trump’s tax returns.
Donald Trump — locked away in his bunker, sucking his thumb and clinging tightly to his tax returns (which he had promised to release after the never ending fictional “audit” was completed) — was not the one being sued for the tax records.
It is the Mazars accounting group being sued — Trump’s accountants who did all the work, prepared all the files, and have all the records, probably far more complete than anything Trump has.
They have known for months that this decision was pending, have all the records ready and prepared, and they will now be promptly turned over to prosecutors. And no, it is not a “fishing expedition” as the whiny Trump disingenuously tried to assert. It is based on solid probable cause rooted in the varying valuations of property, income and other assets for different books establishing reasonable suspicion that there were not only two sets of books being kept, but that it was being done knowingly and by malicious, illegal, CRIMINAL intent.
…and that doesn’t even include the hush money stuff, illegal campaign expenditures that were never declared and other outright legal offenses.
Oh, and it is not just the tax records, it is the entire accounting file — all the notes, correspondence, underlying documents, and multiple sets of books being kept (which prove fraud) to show low values for tax purposes and high values when applying for loans.
Trump is going to have a hard time campaigning, for himself or others, from the Big House.
