Manhattan District Attorney Subpoena Trump's 8-years Of Tax Return
What is Trump waiting for?
Trump’s played the game his entire life. If we’re naive enough to assume that this subpoena will result in any sort of justice, we’ll be very disappointed. The characters he’s surrounded himself with throughout his entire life have taught him how to wage through the U.S. as a lawless land. Roy Cohn, for instance, was his lawyer for quite some time. And he also had clients such as Tony Salerno and John Gotti. Mafia figures. Cohn was the king of obfuscation, delay, and denial. And Trump’s taken a piece of that pie. Roger Stone is another example, a man who favors deception over democracy; propaganda over veracity. Stone has been hovering over the conservative party for decades, and he's taught Trump a thing or two about distracting the public.
What does a subpoena even mean, nowadays? We’ve seen the multiple violations of subpoenas by former members of the Trump Administration. And are they serving any kind of federal punishment? As of today, the answer is no.
Hush money or not, tax returns or not, we already know that Trump is not an innocent businessman that’s being unfairly dragged and duped by the courts and his political enemies. He’s a con artist who is barely keeping up with the consequences that are crawling closer to his reality. And if we are all mistaken, Trump should stand up for himself. If this is all a sham, an attack of political merit, release those tax returns. Humiliate your political rivals. So, tell me Trump. Why won’t you?
Justice in reverse; that's what we call unjust.
Why are we entitled to see the tax returns of a billionaire that became a public servant? What’s with the never ending search for a truth that simply doesn’t exist? This subpoena and revisitation of a long-old and buried allegation is nothing more than a vitriolic effort to unseat a president that just so happens to be a Republican. The left should keep in mind that no one will forget how this president was treated, and if a Democratic POTUS takes office, their tactics can be used against that president as well.
And in this particular case, the president’s tax returns aren’t the only piece of evidence necessary. What about the tax returns of the person who received this money? How did Stormy report it on her taxes? How about the other women who are implicated? Where are their subpoenas? If you’re going to conduct a thorough investigation, whether or not it’s for any reason beyond political vilification of the president, wouldn’t you at least attempt to make it seem legitimate? Why aren’t more people being ordered to hand over their financial records?
The funny thing is that we are talking about tax returns here. These are processed by the IRS, who would have found and addressed any wrong or misleading information at the time they were filed. We know how vigilant and stringent the IRS is, so what exactly does New York’s DA think will be found in Trump’s returns? Looking for a crime doesn’t mean there’s an existing crime. Seems like, all of a sudden, the process has been reversed. Shouldn’t there be a crime first, then an investigation?
