Trump Lashes out at Supreme Court for Allowing New York ‘Witch Hunt’ to Continue

    Former President Donald Trump spoke out on Monday to respond publicly after the the Supreme Court rejected his bid to prevent New York prosecutors from obtaining his financial records.

    "The Supreme Court never should have let this 'fishing expedition' happen, but they did," Trump wrote in a lengthy statement that was released to the press.

    This came after the Supreme Court voted to reject Trump's application to stay a lower court's order, which allows prosecutors to subpoena his tax, financial, and bank records. This did not sit well with Trump, who blasted the effort of Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. as "a continuation of the greatest political Witch Hunt in the history of our Country."

    "The Tea Party was treated far better by the IRS than Donald Trump," Trump said, according to The Hill. "This is something which has never happened to a President before."

    Not stopping there, the former president also ripped the investigation as a partisan effort by Democrat New York officials, including Gov. Andrew Cuomo, to punish him for winning the presidency.

    "The new phenomenon of 'headhunting' prosecutors and AGs — who try to take down their political opponents using the law as a weapon — is a threat to the very foundation of our liberty," Trump wrote.

    Trump then warned that the ongoing probe imitated those of third world countries trying to punish their political rivals.

    "That's fascism, not justice — and that is exactly what they are trying to do with respect to me, except that the people of our Country won't stand for it," he wrote.

    Despite his strong feelings on this, Trump made it clear that he has no intention of giving up.

    "I will fight on, just as I have, for the last five years (even before I was successfully elected), despite all of the election crimes that were committed against me," Trump said. "We will win!"

    This comes as Trump is preparing to give a speech at CPAC this coming weekend. It remains to be seen if he will touch on the Supreme Court scandal.
