Former President Donald Trump responded to the Supreme Court blocking his final attempt to keep his financial records secret on Monday by issuing a statement in which he claimed to be a victim of “fascism.”
“This investigation is a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country,” Trump began, “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!” he wrote.
Trump then blasted the Supreme Court for allowing what he called a “fishing expedition” to move forward by allowing Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance access to eight years of his tax returns.
Those tax returns, Trump said, “were done by among the biggest and most prestigious law and accounting firms in the U.S.”
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. 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.
The former president concluded: “I will fight on, just as I have, for the last five years (even before I was successfully elected), despite all of the election crimes that were committed against me. We will win!”
