Trump issues statement after SCOTUS decision on tax records, reiterates claim that he won election
"The Supreme Court never should have let this 'fishing expedition' happen, but they did," Trump declared in the statement.
Former President Trump released a statement on Monday after the Supreme Court did not act to stop the turnover of tax records to a New York State prosecutor.
Within the statement Trump also reiterated his contention that he won the 2020 presidential election.
"The Supreme Court never should have let this 'fishing expedition' happen, but they did," Trump declared in the statement. "This is something which has never happened to a President before, it is all Democrat-inspired in a totally Democrat location, New York City and State, completely controlled and dominated by a heavily reported enemy of mine, Governor Andrew Cuomo. These are attacks by Democrats willing to do anything to stop the almost 75 million people (the most votes, by far, ever gotten by a sitting president) who voted for me in the election—an election which many people, and experts, feel that I won. I agree!"
"The new phenomenon of 'headhunting' prosecutors and AGs—who try to take down their political opponents using the law as a weapon—is a threat to the very foundation of our liberty," Trump said in the statement. "That's what is done in third world countries. Even worse are those who run for prosecutorial or attorney general offices in far-left states and jurisdictions pledging to take out a political opponent. That's fascism, not justice—and that is exactly what they are trying to do with respect to me, except that the people of our Country won't stand for it."
