The Supreme Court denied President Donald Trump’s request to halt the enforcement of a subpoena to hand over his tax returns to New York prosecutors.

The justices did not explain their choice. Trump followed with a scathing statement.

“The 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 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,” wrote Trump.

“It just never ends!”

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has been fighting for Trump’s tax records since 2019:

Vance, a Democrat, had subpoenaed the records from the Mazars accounting firm that has long done work for Trump and his businesses. Mazars has said it would comply with the subpoena, but Trump, a Republican, sued to block the records’ release.

Vance’s office had said it would be free to enforce the subpoena and obtain the records in the event the Supreme Court declined to step in and halt the records’ turnover, but it was unclear when that might happen.

Vance wants eight years of tax records.

“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!” exclaimed Trump.

Trump described the moves by his opponents as “fascism, not justice.”

“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,” continued Trump. “That’s what’s 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 the people of our Country won’t stand for it.”

Trump pointed out that “murders and violent crime are up in New York City by record numbers, and nothing is done about it.”

Trump is not wrong, except serious crime “fell nearly 1% compared with 2019.” I doubt the fact-checkers will do their job so allow me:

The number of murders in the city rose to 462 last year, up nearly 45% from 319 in 2019, according to the NYPD. The increase accompanied a steep rise in gun violence more intense than any seen in the previous 20 years, according to police statistics.

The city recorded 1,531 shootings in 2020, 97% more than the 777 in 2019. Data showed the number of shooting victims in the city more than doubled to 1,868 in 2020 from 923 in 2019. The number of shooting victims exceeds the number of shootings because multiple people may be shot in a single incident.

Also, why isn’t Vance and every other district attorney going after Gov. Andrew Cuomo and his nursing home deaths? How about Cuomo and his administration fudging the numbers?
