WASHINGTON (AP) — In a significant defeat for former President Donald Trump, the Supreme Court on Monday declined to step in to halt the turnover of his tax records to a New York state prosecutor.

The court’s action is the apparent culmination of a lengthy legal battle that had already reached the high court once before.

Trump’s tax records are not supposed to become public as part of prosecutors' criminal investigation, but the high court’s action is a blow to Trump because he has long fought on so many fronts to keep his tax records shielded from view. The ongoing investigation that the records are part of could also become an issue for Trump in his life after the presidency. Trump has called it “a fishing expedition” and “a continuation of the witch hunt — the greatest witch hunt in history.”

The Supreme Court waited months to act in the case. The last of the written briefs in the case was filed Oct. 19. But a court that includes three Trump appointees waited through the election, Trump’s challenge to his defeat and a month after Trump left office before issuing its order.

      Fishing expedition my arse. Sweet Karma is more like it.

Of course it is a fishing expedition.  But as everyone knows, when you go fishing you want to go where the big fish live.  The ones who are very hungry, and who have been bad things for years.  If he did nothing wrong, he would not need to worry about fishers.

Im just hoping that he, like people such as Paul Manafort, does not get away with doing all these things.

The Court was undoubtedly waiting until Trump was no longer chief executive. I'm surprised they waited this long, though.

I don't think it's a fishing expedition, though.  I think the prosecutors have a really good idea what's in those returns, but I think they need the solid evidence to prove it in court.  Now I think we will see Donald Trump, private citizen, corrupt politician, sleazy real estate operator, disreputable con man, in a series of court appearances. 

All this talk about how popular he is with the "base" will fade away quickly when he is facing fines and possible time wearing orange.

Yes, I think you're right about him and his followers. I don't know why they waited so long either. I can understand they waited for this when he was a sitting president. Maybe they are collecting all the evidence they needed, which was kept from them until now.

Very possible they intentionally waited until he was no longer Commander in Chief. Whatever the reason, lift the wool from their eyes and see this bitch for the bitch he is...
