WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 23rd February, 2021) Former President Donald Trump issued a statement in which he slammed the US Supreme Court for not blocking New York prosecutors from obtaining his tax records.
Earlier on Monday, US Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer declined to issue a stay for a lower court ruling in favor of former President Donald Trump disclosing his tax returns to a New York grand jury.
"The Supreme Court never should have let this 'fishing expedition' happen, but they did," Trump said on Monday. "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."
Trump further said the New York Attorney General's investigation is a continuation of the greatest political with hunt in US history, adding that the probe is similar to practices in Third World countries and represents a threat to the foundation of liberty in the United States.
