tRUMP Tax Returns

The Associated Press reports:

In a significant defeat for former President Donald Trump, the Supreme Court is declining to step in to halt the turnover of his tax records to a New York state prosecutor. The court’s action Monday is the apparent culmination of a lengthy legal battle that had already reached the high court once before. Trump’s tax records are not supposed to become public as part of prosecutors’ investigation, but the high court’s action is a blow to Trump because he has for so long fought on so many fronts to keep his tax records shielded from view.

Nice. I don't personally care if I ever see the tax returns, but I'm glad the DA is finally going to get to.

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 3Last Monday at 5:00 AM

I can hear his sphincter puckering from here. Nothing is more important to him than his money.....or lack of it.

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 4Last Monday at 5:00 AM

We already know Trump doesn't pay any income tax and games the system constantly to work in his favor, and yet 74 million people still voted for him (and idolized him for his tax avoidance skills). How much worse could it get?

Oh wait, it did get worse. He attempted to murder his vice-president and nothing happened, so I wouldn't hold my breath expecting anything to come of this.

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 5Last Monday at 5:03 AM

LMAO!!!!

Federal prosecutors now have access to records he fought like hell to protect...

Perhaps Trump’s energy would be best spent preparing for his pending criminal trials instead of stealing money from his cultists by promising to run for President again ( ohhhh...that con game is also likely to result in legal scrutiny as well).

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 6Last Monday at 5:04 AM

r6 has reading comprehension issues. "New York state prosecutor" is not a Federal prosecutor.

[quote]He attempted to murder his vice-president and nothing happened, so I wouldn't hold my breath expecting anything to come of this.

This isn't about public opinion. We already know that nothing he does will change the minds of his cult members. This is about a real legal case against him that could ruin him financially.

Will he use his "Cousin Vinny" lawyers the ones who defended him in his impeachment trial to defend him in the upcoming civil suits?

They never caught Al Capone for any crime other than tax evasion.

They will turn over several years of tax records but also other financial records.

My most fervent hope is that he is totally humiliated because it is revealed....He’s NOT a Billionaire. Not even close.

I do wonder why he is hiding them. We know he evaded taxes—that’s not a big deal to his supporters, as someone upthread mentioned. In fact, they admire him for it. Michael Cohen said he’s not indebted to Russians, but I don’t know if I believe it. Sometimes I wonder if he fought this long just out of spite.

"Will he use his "Cousin Vinny" lawyers the ones who defended him in his impeachment trial to defend him in the upcoming civil suits?"

If Hitler hadn't killed himself and gone on trial for war crimes, Bruce Castor would have vigorously defended him because Bruce Castor is a dirtball scumbag himself.

When he was DA here in Montgomery County PA, he refused to prosecute Bill Cosby. He also refused to prosecute Andy Reid's sons, both of whom were involved in serious motor vehicle accidents while under the influence of alcohol or drugs. If it had been a black or Latino kid behind the wheel of those vehicles instead of Andy Reid's kids, that kid would be languishing in the deepest, darkest dungeon of Graterford Prison for life without the possibility of parole. That's the kind of asshole Bruce Castor was and is.

Now fast forward 15 years and Reid's surviving kid is pulling the same shit, this time resulting in a serious, life threatening injury to a little girl.

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 21Last Monday at 7:21 AM

R21, Bruce Castor is indeed the slimiest of slimy lawyers, but the reason he had to step aside as prosecutor for Andy Reid’s kids was because he was buddy buds with their lawyers and that created a conflict of interest. Reid’s kids lawyers wished that Castor handled the case because The state was actually stricter in their sentencing.

And you guys, r21 and r22:

I take great offense to this.

When I was a young lawyer I had occasion to go into a store. The cavemen had invented fire by then. So I screamed “First Amendment!!” and the clerk had a tidy ransom to spend on her own inheritance. It was magical in its osprey. I would love to send it back to the ... we know why you guys are here—to judge. Well judge lest, no, don’t judge...something like that. “First Amendment!!” the man caterwauled. So I went to see the caveman about the fire that the Justices had set precedent for many, many times over.

...

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 25Last Monday at 7:55 AM

I have a blissful smile on my face knowing that the DA will get the tax returns and Trump can’t even tweet about it.

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 26Last Monday at 8:08 AM

So... can Dump appeal this as well? What are next steps?

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 27Last Monday at 8:26 AM

^ugh let me elaborate. I know Dump can’t appeal a SC ruling, but did they send this back to the lower courts or something, which will allow Dump to continue fighting?

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 28Last Monday at 8:28 AM

No he can’t appeal. The reason it went to the Supreme Court is because a lower courts determined the Manhattan DA could get access to his tax records.

Cry me a river Don-Don Just in via press release:

Statement on the Continuing Political Persecution of President Donald J. Trump

This investigation is a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country, whether it was the never ending $32 million Mueller hoax, which already investigated everything that could possibly be investigated, “Russia Russia Russia,” where there was a finding of “No Collusion,” or two ridiculous “Crazy Nancy” inspired impeachment attempts where I was found NOT GUILTY. It just never ends!

So now, for more than two years, New York City has been looking at almost every transaction I’ve ever done, including seeking tax returns which were done by among the biggest and most prestigious law and accounting firms in the U.S.

The Tea Party was treated far better by the IRS than Donald Trump. The Supreme Court never should have let this “fishing expedition” happen, but they did.

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.

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.

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 36Last Monday at 9:42 AM

Great, so we can read about he has cheat on his taxes his entire life. Loser.

He wants liberty now and complains about 'third world' practices: he should have thought more about these topics while he was president busy destroying our liberties and turning us into a banana republic.

So, what's the next step? Who is holding the returns and hands them over? ...

Trump's longtime accounting firm, Mazars USA, said it was aware of the Supreme Court order and "remains committed to fulfilling all of our professional and legal obligations." The firm added that it could not publicly discuss the services it provides clients without their consent or as required by law

...Hopefully, there is no way they can hide any of the important/criminal docs.

His wife is Slovenian...I wonder if he’ll try to get an EU passport within the coming months. He’s so cheap and stuck in his ways he’ll only want to go places where he owns properties, and the only foreign property that is outright his is the one in Scotland...and they won’t have him.

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 50Last Monday at 10:53 AM

My guess is that the DOJ is going to let city, county and state prosecutors have first bite at TRump. While he’s tied up with them (and trying to fight off the Congressional investigation(s)), DOJ will be methodically building a potential slammer of a federal case. It’ll be up to Garland whether they pursue.

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 51Last Monday at 10:55 AM

Who knows what Dump personally owns outright at this point. Certainly it's less than he'd like people to think.

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 54Last Monday at 11:07 AM

Two questions....How long will it take for the State to paw over his returns and corresponding work papers? Do they then have to physically verify each line item? Are we talking years and years or just a short period of time before the hammer falls?

Next, is there any liability involved with the CPA firm that prepared the returns? Could they only be liable for arithmetic errors or can they be held responsible for the IRS submission of fraudulent returns?

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 64Last Monday at 12:11 PM

"Nothing will come of this!"

I agree. No reputable accounting firm is going to prepare deliberately fraudulent returns.

The problem here is not illegal accounting, but extra-legal accounting. There is a fine line between the two, and reputable accountants don't skirt that line. They will push the envelope as far as they can. Many of these firms hire ex IRS agents so they know what they can and cannot get by with the IRS.

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 65Last Monday at 12:12 PM

Putin will not want him. Putin has gotten all he needs from DJT. DJT is a liability now, and we know what Putin does to get someone out of his way.

by The Joyful Ghost of RBGreply 66Last Monday at 12:14 PM
