We all know good and well that there’s a reason Donald Trump is clinging so tight to the power of the United States presidency — while he’s certainly a power-hungry maniac, at the end of the day I don’t believe it’s so much the power that he’s desperate to hold onto as it is the protection.
The man has been the epitome of human garbage pretty much his entire adult life. But there’s no denying that he’s pulled A LOT of shady stuff from the comfort of the White House, all while enjoying the protections of the presidency that disallow entities from prosecuting him while he remains in office. However, folks are gearing up left and right to smack him with an onslaught of justice for all his transgressions just as soon as he moves out and the Biden’s move in.
And now, thanks to a report from The Washington Post, we have a fresh, new glimpse into just how close the Manhattan district attorney’s investigation into Donald Trump and the Trump Organization is to ruining it all for the man who has quite literally ruined the last four years of our lives — according to the report, the DA’s office is only in need of one “final piece” in their investigation.
The headline of the Post’s story focused on the fact that the probe is escalating and District Attorney Cy Vance hired “forensic account experts,” but it was a different piece of information muzzled in the report that caught our attention. Post reporters Shayna Jacobs and Jonathan O’Connell revealed:
Vance is engaged in a long-running legal battle to obtain eight years of Trump’s tax records and other financial information from the president’s accounting firm, Mazars USA. Those records are considered the final piece of what is already a well-developed investigation, according to the person.”
We’ve long known that Vance, much like Democrats in the House, has been after the entirety of Donald Trump’s taxes for some time now. But until this new report, it’s been rather unclear as to what stage of their investigation they were in.
Some publications have noted that the Post’s sources aren’t entirely clear in regard to reliability and even the Post themselves have explained that Trump could still manage to escape charges.
But, I can’t tell you how nice it feels to know that they’re still coming after this horrible, atrocious stain on our democracy — and they’re so close to bringing him down.
