“The Supreme Court shouldn’t have let this happen, but they did,” Trump said. That is something that has never happened to a president before. They are all inspired by the Democrats in a completely Democratic location the city and state of New York – which is controlled and dominated by my rival, Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Mr. Trump describes the Manhattan investigation of his financial transactions as a sequel to “the greatest political witch hunt in American history”. Mr Trump accused Democrats in New York of spending their energy to take down a political opponent instead of tackling violent crime.
The former US leader vowed “to fight, as he did in the past five years, even before being elected, in spite of all the wrongs running against him”. “We will win,” said Trump.

On February 22, the US Supreme Court ruled to pave the way for the federal prosecutor to access tax returns and other records of Mr. Trump.
Previously, the former US President asked to delay the lower court’s decision on October 7, 2020, requiring the accounting firm Mazars USA to comply with the subpoena, providing Mr. Trump’s tax return documents for compensation jury, at the request of Cyrus Vance – Manhattan county prosecutor.
The Manhattan County prosecutor’s office is trying to determine if Mr. Trump’s firm is fraudulent about the value of commercial properties on tax returns and bank loan records.
The judges did not comment after the February 22 ruling, while Mr. Vance asserted: “The work is continuing”. A Mazars USA spokesperson said the company is “committed to fulfilling all legal obligations”.

Since 2019, Mr. Vance’s office has been searching for Mr. Trump’s file. Vance has submitted a Mazars subpoena for access to Trump and his companies tax records. The office also reviewed payments made to buy the silence of two women who revealed they had had a relationship with Mr. Trump, including adult movie star Stormy Daniels.
Additionally, Mr. Vance’s office said their subpoena was part of an investigation into potential tax violations involving the Trump Organization family group.
Unlike his predecessors, Trump refuses to publish tax returns and documents providing information about the Trump Organization’s assets and operations.
