Former President Donald Trump released an official statement Monday after the Supreme Court issued a ruling that would likely allow his political opponents to access his private and business tax returns.
“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,” writes the President.
“In the meantime, murders and violent crime are up in New York City by record numbers, and nothing is done about it. Our elected officials don’t care. All they focus on is the persecution of President Donald J. Trump,” he adds.
“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!” Trump concludes.

*OBSESSION* Elizabeth Warren Complains ‘Americans Never Got to See Trump’s Tax Returns’
Failed presidential candidate and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren continued her non-stop obsession with all-things Trump Monday afternoon; complaining that “the American people never got to see his tax returns.”
“The American people never got to see Trump’s tax returns while he was sitting in the Oval Office. That’s just plain wrong. My bill to end Washington corruption would force all federal candidates to make their tax returns public—without years and years of lawsuits like this,” posted Warren on social media.

ADAM'S OBSESSION: Schiff Accuses Trump of ‘Corruption’ and ‘Coercion’ for… Meeting with Andrew Cuomo?
Rep. Adam Schiff refused to abandon his non-stop quest to remove President Trump from office this week; bizarrely labeling his scheduled meeting with the Governor of New York as an example of “corruption.”
“Trump abused his power to coerce Ukraine into announcing investigations for his personal benefit by freezing military aid. Now, he’s using his powers to coerce states to stop investigations into him and his businesses. Different corrupt purpose, same corrupt President,” posted Schiff on social media.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed legislation last year giving illegal immigrant’s access to driver’s licenses throughout the state; sparking new fears the documentation could be used for voter fraud and other potential complications.
“Cuomo’s action came despite throwing supporters a last minute curveball by asking the state’s top civil attorney, Solicitor General Barbara Underwood, to review the measure for possible safety concerns — threatening to veto it if he didn’t like her assessment,” reports the NY Post.
“You could create a database for the feds to use to actually track down undocumented people,” Cuomo said on WAMC radio. “California passed a law, and they are now in litigation.”
“The legislation is well-crafted and contains ample protections for those who apply for driver’s licenses. If this bill is enacted and challenged in court, we will vigorously defend it,” said New York Attorney General Tish James.
The proposal passed the state Senate by a razor-thin 33-29 vote.
