Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance has obtained Donald Trump's tax returns. After this week's Supreme Court ruling, Trump's attorneys finally handed the long sought-after returns to the DA's office. FINALLY, this national nightmare (eyeroll) can be put behind us.
The subpoena for the tax documents from Mazars USA, Trump's longtime accounting firm, was enforced on Monday and Vance's office now has them, a spokesperson for Vance's office, Danny Frost, told NBC News on Thursday.
Vance was seeking tax returns covering eight years for a grand jury investigation of hush money payments and other financial transactions. The investigation began after it was disclosed that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about her claim that she had an affair with Trump, an allegation he has denied.
The returns haven't been made public. Yet. In New York, materials turned over to a grand jury need to be kept secret. At least until someone from the grand jury or the DA's office leaks them to the press. But THAT would never happen. Would it?
Out of all the dumb things leftists tried to make an issue out of, Trump's tax returns were always top three. Most of America, I'd argue, doesn't really care. Especially now that he's a private citizen. But the person who will most win out on the news? Donald Trump himself. He's giving a big speech to CPAC this week that is his first address since leaving office. This guarantees more eyeballs watching, which plays right into Trump's hands.
I wonder if he'll have anything to say about this over the weekend?
