The former President of the United States, Donald Trump, lashed out at the country’s Supreme Court after it rejected his appeal on Tuesday to try to prevent the Internal Revenue Service from delivering his tax returns to a committee of the House of Representatives.
“Why would anyone be surprised that the Supreme Court has ruled against me?” The former president ironically questioned through his profile on Truth Social, the social network that he himself promoted after being expelled from Twitter and where he now appears have been readmitted.
A) Yes, Trump asserted that there is no precedent in the history of the United States of any president having to hand over his tax returns.which could now fall into the hands of the Democrats who dominate the aforementioned House committee.
The tycoon criticized that the decision of the Supreme Court “creates a terrible precedent for future presidents”, and questioned that the current president, Joe Biden, has regularized “all the money he earned illegally” thanks to the corrupt activities of his son Hunter, according to The Hill.
“The Supreme Court has lost its honor, prestige and position, and has become nothing more than a political body, with our country paying the price,” denounced Trump, who took the opportunity to revive his conspiracy theory about the results. of the 2020 presidential elections. “They refused to even look at the electoral hoax. What a shame!” he pointed out.
In this sense, the Supreme Court rejected on Tuesday an appeal filed by Trump to try to prevent their tax returns from falling into the hands of the House of Representatives, in what is a great defeat for a former president who in recent years has worked hard to prevent this fact.
Thus, the case takes a new turn of the wheel after just three weeks ago the Supreme Court itself temporarily prohibited the publication of said tax returns, until other judicial instances evaluated whether or not the review of previous rulings was accepted. the Court on this matter.
So, now the commission of the House of Representatives can get to obtain the statements of the tycoon in the fastest way possible. Meanwhile, Trump’s lawyers believe that the committee’s true intentions are to disclose said tax information to the public.
