“The Supreme Court never should have let this ?’?fishing expedition?’? happen, but they did,” Trump fumed.
Former President Donald Trump lashed out at the Supreme Court on Monday after it declined to stop the release of his tax returns to the Manhattan district attorney, saying ?the decision allows? the "greatest political Witch Hunt" in the country's history? to continue.

"Whether it was the never ending $32 million Mueller hoax, which already investigated everything that could possibly be investigated, "Russia Russia Russia,' where there was a finding of "No Collusion,' or two ridiculous "Crazy Nancy' inspired impeachment attempts where I was found NOT GUILTY. It just never ends!," Trump said in an emailed statement.

District Attorney Cyrus Vance is investigating alleged insurance and bank fraud by Trump's real estate company and has subpoenaed eight years' worth of financial records from Trump's accounting firm Mazars USA LLP.

The Supreme Court did not explain the reasons behind ?its ruling and the single sentence order did not include a dissent from any of the justices.

"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.?," Trump continued in the statement.

"The Supreme Court never should have let this ?'?fishing expedition?'? happen, but they did.?"

The former president then went on to suggest it was part of a vendetta by Democrats and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

"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 said. ?

H?e went on to say that Democrats are "willing to do anything to stop the almost 75 million people" who voted for him in the 2020 presidential race — "an election which many people, and experts, feel that I won. I agree!"
