The Former Guy’s tax returns have been turned over to District Attorney Cyrus Vance in Manhattan.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office has taken possession of former president Donald Trump’s tax returns and a wealth of other financial data deemed central to prosecutors’ ongoing criminal case, officials confirmed Thursday.
The transfer, involving millions of pages of records, occurred Monday after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected the former president’s last-ditch bid to shield his financial records from the district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr. (D).
In a statement, a spokesman for Vance’s office, Danny Frost, confirmed that Trump’s longtime accounting firm, Mazars, had complied with the subpoena after 18 months of delay while the former president’s lawyers fought tooth and nail to keep the information private. The transfer occurred within hours of the Supreme Court’s one-line order, Frost said.
My favorite line from the article:
Trump faces unprecedented legal jeopardy for a former president.
This makes me ridiculously happy.
To use a favorite phrase of former boss of mine: I hope the former guy is as nervous as a goose shitting peach pits.
