The Supreme Court says Donald Trump Must Provide His Tax Returns

The Supreme Court says Donald Trump Must Provide His Tax Returns

"We're going to start today's program heading to the united states now where the supreme court has ordered donald trump to hand over his tax returns and other financial records. Trump's been resisting attempts to do so for several years. Of course well. Let's get the latest now on this. With suzanne lynch washington correspondent at the irish times Good morning to you. Suzanne good from here in london up. Bring us up to speed with the latest. What do we know. The supreme court issued a very short very significant ruling yesterday and which basically ended donald trump's attempts to shield his financial records and he is being in a battle to stop prosecutor in manhattan from getting access to his tax returns and other financial records is the second time surpreme course weighed in on this. The first time is over the issue of whether sitting president at could be shielded because road as president. But this time. Ed supreme court put it outside this decisive ad. Fees for mr trump effect. Now looks at like very much. So at these records now would have turned over to investigators new york and Mr trump's accountants perhaps bankers to will have to hand over documents related to his financial affairs and give us a sense. We obviously we had a little clip from trump at the top of the show. Easy talks about you. Know the the greatest witch hunt in history continuing Can can he fend this off in the same way. Actually he dealt with some of the bulbs that were involved in the impeachment hearings or does the fact that i guess we're looking at a judicial action potential criminal irregularities. Does that change the way that he needs to sort of Defend the charges almost. Yes i know. Yeah designed so far is up. No because yesterday he had a very very strong statement ad calling this a political persecution and calling it a fishing expedition and directly criticizing at the supreme court and and people remember. He himself pointed three of the members of the supreme court book directly criticizing the court and of course the federal prosecutors in new york Have don has kind of fallen out with new york. He moved out of the city and the dolphin clashed with officials in that city. He's obviously quite unpopular in his home town of york city on. It's the attorney general there. Sarah advanced who's reedy at take upon himself to pursue at trump for these for these charges. Say i mean we could be looking at a criminal. Trial of a former. Us president if this is to continue and is a both would way of looking at this as parts of the reason. Perhaps trump is saying. It's part of this long term witch hunt in that in congress people remember before his first impeachment and ahead of us because a lot of oversight into donald trump's at russia connections and then there was an inquiry into hush money he paid add to the adult film star stormy down one hundred thirty thousand dollars and this began this pursuit then by the new york attorney general he then decided to this payment and say what was that saying about campaign finance laws about highly payment of one hundred thirty two thousand dollars that was actually made by mike cohen. His lawyer but then he said trump in bach and this if you like your unraveled with thread of inquiry into donald trump's taxes now this is where we are am so what are the significance is about. Oh that was. Yesterday's rooting is not not only. Will they get access to his tax records but also the business and financial very detailed information that accountants bankers will have on which your tax records are based If you like. So that's going to be probably even more info important than actually getting access to his tax records. Which as you know the new york times already seem to seem quite a bit about whether we don't know how much actual detailed information they have aspect to this that i find absolutely fascinating is of course the the conflicting interests of politicians be they Members of the of the gop from the democratic movement in terms of their interests or not in trump continuing to be to be in the spotlight because there were suggestions even obviously during the impeachment proceedings clearly suited some of in the republican movement for that to just be dealt with swiftly as possible. There were also suggestions though that even for the democrats. It was kind of better that that was just dealt with. It was finished even if he wasn't convicted. Does that does that delicate balance shift. Now i is there a sense of one either side of the political spectrum if you like that actually we just don't want trump in the in the spotlight anymore. I'm actually if he can play this narrative the witch hunt that he's he's got a soapbox day people coming to him to hear from him. Is it more damaging could it be more damaging to proceed ings. Go ahead it's very possible. I mean it is very possible because as you say. Donald trump has been an easy foil for democrats over the last four years a now if he feels i think a lot of his supporters argue to sympathize with him and say that this investigation is politically motivated. Donald trump brand and it's always been problematic has been around his his business and is you his his. He sees the success of a business person and other people in these tax records seems to show that he welcomed successful as he implied. But i think would be certain that might precipitate for him from a lot of his supporters because he has said before. You know i've always just legally paid whatever talks you know. He was implying that. If i was able to game the system but you know panic attacks possible within the law with every right to do that and a lot of people would agree with on bash. So the problem is we don't actually know what is in the detail something more nefarious as there and the irs. At the criminal justice system does not look likely on talks offenses and that if he is facing criminal prosecution for this he could be in serious trouble but this was always an issue for him. I mean he didn't. He didn't disclose his tax returns around for present at most people in this country high of the fact that they do need to do that. And they're highly aware of a of their financial at connections. Even though there's a sold so much money in politics in this country in and brian politicians they do you know the important of disclosure so a lot of people may think this is catching up with him. He's a long histories of businessmen york. He's very unpopular among business. People in your because he bragged before by not paying etc and a lot of people find. This is his chickens come home to roost and yes. He had those four years in the white house. But for most it's life you the businessmen. There have every right to investigation for that date. Well i'm sure we'll show speak on this but more future. Suzanne very good to get the latest from

"mr. trump" Discussed on The Ben Shapiro Show

"In a dead heat it has Buddha Judge Judge twenty-three in Sanders at twenty four. The Emerson poll. That came out same day it has sanders further ahead at thirty two with Pooja twenty-three and monmouth which came out the day before had sanders anders within spitting distance of Buddha Judge Sanders Twenty four Buddha judge at twenty bottom line is that that lead has shrunk from medically for Bernie Sanders. Who is getting a big bump from Iowa? Part of that is due to the media coverage Bernie did win the most votes in Iowa. But he's unlikely to win the most delegates it's basically a dead heat and Bernie is expected to do really well in Iowa. Buddha judge was kind of left for dead a few weeks ago well. Buddha judge obviously did really well in Iowa and now he's doing really well in New Hampshire. Now these are very very white states and either Bernie Norbu judge has a lot of black support. Which is why I suggest that if Buddha judge actually overcomes Bernie then that's GonNa leave it up in a pathway for Joe Biden in places like South Carolina because Buddha judge does not have the national organization? That Bernie has Bernie has been starting to make some inroads into minority communities in ways the Buddha judge simply has not all the Buddha judges have far more innately talented politician than Bernie. Sanders is boo. Judge has also been able to work this magic where he pretends that he's moderate when he is absolutely not moderate. I mean super not. Moderate by the way Biden is completely collapsing in New Hampshire as well Biden is falling apart. Elizabeth Warren is stagnant. I think she is Toast Biden. At least can make the case to his people that if he holds onto South Carolina. Maybe he'll do okay there but again the polls in South Carolina been tightening fairly a lot as well biden is now running at like eleven percent in the last two polls in New Hampshire just Zastava stuff for Joe Biden. He's going to have to show some signs of life to his supporters. He is going to be toast. Forthwith now with all that said the latest East Carolina you pull still shows Biden blowing everybody out in South Carolina. Rachel's is Biden at thirty seven. This is taken pre I with Biden at thirty seven Tom Steyer at nineteen and nineteen and that actually is a sign of possibility for Michael Bloomberg. Right because Michael Bloomberg is just like Tom Steiner. Except more so Tom Sawyer. Spent like seventy five million bucks. Bloomberg has been two hundred million dollars on this race particularly in Super Tuesday states so this race is a complete complete match. The person with the easiest path by far at this point is burning because Bernie is the most well-known. He's got a machine. He's got a movement behind him and he has a lot of small dollar donors that are just throwing throwing off money right. All of that shows benefit for him but the fragmentary nature of the field. And the possibility that you could see. Let's say that. Let's say that Bernie. Let's say that Biden falls apart so badly South Carolina he gets out well that opens the door to either Buddha judge or Bloomberg or somebody else so it's a mess Out There Biden for his part is panicking. He's prepping for the debate. But what exactly is he going to do that. He hasn't done before. Presumably is going to have to get aggressive with Bernie presumably is gonNA GONNA have to get aggressive mostly with bondage attack. Buddha Judge Buddha judges pretty been fairly smoothly on defense I put a judge has been able to sort of push off all the attacks on him and also also. I'm not sure that the experience attack really matters much Democrats. They elected to the presidency twice. A guy who had had five minutes in the United States. Senate if they really wanted somebody who had done anything in his life. They wouldn't be looking at Bernie's Ernie who's been a useless piece of crap for the last six decades and the the the bottom line is that they're looking for somebody who sort of mirrors vision makes them feel good about themselves and Buddha judges doing that far more so the Biden. This is the problem for Joe Biden according to The Washington Post outside the castle themed Radisson Hotel where Joe Biden has been staying. His campaign bus was parked and ready for events but on on Thursday just five days before the crucial primary here. The candidate was nowhere to be found. Biden spent Thursday gathered with his top advisors at his home in Wilmington Delaware seeking reset and perhaps a last ditch effort to save his candidacy beginning with debate on Friday night. He'll no public events he's set to appear on all the Sunday shows on Sundays. He needs the publicity following dismal results. In the Iowa caucuses that have rattled many in his orbit. His campaign is now simultaneously trying to lower expectations here. Some suggesting that. Consider a Finnish as low as third-placed victory while bracing for a second straight difficult election day in one troublesome signed signed for the financially strapped campaign. Canceled nearly one hundred fifty thousand dollars in TV ads in South Carolina which votes February twenty-ninth and the spending Nevada whose February twenty-second contest follows. New Hampshire's the move seemed to acknowledge. The binds campaign cannot sustain a continued run of bad news. Which of course is true? He needs to win. Nevada outright Dick Harpootlian South Carolina state. Senator said from a Biden Haydn perspective. There's going to be a course correction all three states before Super Tuesday. He's got to have sharp elbows. WHO suggested those inside? The campaign realized the gravity of the moment that Biden. Had you better explain the differences with his opponents. The problem is that his campaign is not exactly built for Comeback Kid. Bill Clinton New Hampshire type moments. Right it's an old campaign. It's a daughter in campaign campaign. He hasn't bothered to do any of the groundwork. Just assumed who's going to sail to the nomination that he was owed the nomination and people didn't feel that way about him in the same way that they felt about. Hillary Clinton are Boolean says history may right the best thing that ever happened. Joe Biden was getting punched in Iowa. It woke him up his campaign up his supporters up. They were complacent. You've got to talk about the other guy but at least on Thursday was the other guy talking about Biden. PEBA judge was going after Biden. He said if your focus is on ability it ain't Biden. WHO's the most electable? It's me now in a second we're GONNA get to Bernie versus Buddha judge because now this is a three candidate race and really one of those candidates is in serious trouble right that candidate. WHO's in serious trouble? The most obviously is is Biden. And we'll talk about the radicalism of people to the judge which has been completely ignored right. He's been able to pretend that he's actually a member of the moderate Coterie simply because Bernie is an out and out socialist and Buddha. Judge isn't a bourges. No moderate. We'll get to to that in just one second I. The Second Amendment is incredibly important. The reason that I am a gun owner is for ideological end. Self defense reasons. The Second Amendment was designed to protect your rights the whole purpose of the second amendment. It is to protect you from a government that would violate the second amendment you know.

"Okay so as I say. President trump gives this fairly ridiculous presser. and was I mean. Let's just be real about this. It was hilarious but can also be ridiculous. Many things can be true. Once that things things can be entertaining and also ridiculous. See every Michael Bay movie like ever or or John Woo's face offering many things are ridiculous and also wildly entertaining. But the the the the tut-tutting is what made trump president and maybe the tut-tutting that keeps from present. What I mean by that? Is that the wildness perception. That American politics in the absence from is perfectly healthy organism that American politics without trump is perfectly great and that is just trump who ruined. Everything is such my optic bullcrap. It really is. It's not true at aw if you WanNa talk about the institutions and the people who ruined American politics long before trump came on the scene. You'RE GONNA have to look across the aisle to Nancy Pelosi. Nancy Pelosi really let the cat out of the bag the other night eh. She ripped up from state of the Union address. Because she'd been trying to do this whole I'm above all this. I'm I'm so I'm above this. I'm the adult in the room. And then at the end of the state of the Union and in pre preordered fashion ramming. She had she had planned this. She tore up president trump state of the Union address. We know she planned this. Because there's actual video of her free ripping the paper because you WanNa make sure that her hands could actually get through the paper. It's why she knew that she wasn't going to try to rip up the entire speech. She separated into several parts manufacturing. She practiced this thing right so it was preordained. Childishness is preplanned childishness. And this has been the nature of American politics for a long time from not preplanned right. Trump is just. I'm going to go out there and spew childishness but the Democrats. It's been preplanned. It's been organized in. It's been backed by the media so the media were going nuts yesterday. Over president trump say the media before it gets it Pelosi because they're really two suspects aspect in my view in the death of American politics. Has I think trump's the corner not the murderer so core the actual suspects there are two real suspects in my view suspect number one is the media media and suspect number two are the Democrats who were cannon glove with media in the media are suspect because the media have been acting childish since day one. It was the media who are promoting the Bushes Hitler her Bush's awful Bush's lying about the war in Iraq bushes the danger to the community. He's a he's a chimp. He's an idiot. They did the same thing with Ronald Reagan. They've been doing it for decades and then it turns out that the American people bridled against that and they went to other sources of information and the media just doubled down on all of this. The media lost all of their legitimacy long before trump came on scene one again. It's so funny. The media declared trump the murderer of the media because he says be because he says things like fake news all the time they fake news. The Oh my God oh my God attacks on the press press guys. We all knew that you were fake. News trump just set it gave Newt Gingrich said it in two thousand twelve and got a bump in the Republican primaries. They has been a long going narrative on the right and it is not untrue. And we say you're fake news doesn't mean everything that you report is fake. It means that all of you who portray yourselves as the journalistic explainers of the world. All of you who portray yourself as the objective journalists who are attempting to bring fat and separated from opinion. Nearly all of your Democrats and you filter everything through that Democrat Lens. That's what makes you fake news if you if you say your opinion news you're not fake your exactly what you say you are but you know and so this is why everytime trump does something and the media reveal their own biased asked and reveal their own predilections all their doings underscoring why trump is the corner. Not The murderer. So here is here's what. CNN was doing during trump's speech. Yesterday Saturday I mean this was their Kyron right. Is There Chiron. Kyron is supposed to be the objective description of what is going on no editorial ization instead of trump speaks from east east room in acquittal. Celebration there Chiron yesterday said trump vindictive and vulgar in impeachment acquittal. Celebration again that's that's editorializing. It's clear editorializing realizing so. I'm supposed to think that president trump ripping on CNN is somehow inappropriate when CNN is ripping on trump. Now you may think that it was vindictive and vulgar. I mean it was pretty Vindictive v I think it was far less vulgar but regardless that is at its editorialized that is not an objective description of reality at least not again. You WanNa give your opinion. That's fine Don't pretend that that is an objective description of reality and then you had Gloria Borger and Briana Keeler going on trump on CNN yesterday and really just clutching watching their paroles. Not just saying not just rolling okay. That's trumping trump. And that's what trump does instead. It was just. How could anyone to this kind of thing in American politics American politics the home of dignity? How can we do all of us? Come on. You've been watching. The president of the United States with an unscripted vindictive time profane angry rambling response vence to his impeachment. Acquittal started out with the president coming out into the East Room to ruffles and flourishes and then immediately turned into an avalanche of grievance against everybody. It was vindictive as you pointed out it was full of revenge. It was mean-spirited it was poisonous. It was Faisal. Wow can you clutch those pros any hurry. Clutch does pros in your heart. OR THEY'RE GONNA turn into diamonds in seriously. It's it's it's pretty astonishing and again and then when trump says you guys hate me like well. Yeah they they do and they pre existed him okay. CNN was round and criticized. Long before. This I mean I was on CNN in like twenty fourteen before Donald Trump was running for president talking explicitly about the fact that during the Gaza war that was happening between to come out in Israel that come out could not have had better spokespeople than CNN. I mean CNN has been unbiased for an extraordinarily long time. So get the media. Wish to make it that president trump's childishness and vindictiveness and thin-skinned this that all of that is the death of American politics and it's like no trump is is just the symptom and also the coroner of everything that is going on C. N. N.'s. John Harwood doing the same routine so so John Harwood comes out. He says well. This guy is in psychological distress weird weird I don't remember them. psychoanalyzing Barack Obama when he was literally crying during some press conferences about mass shootings and remember them doing a deep dive into his psychology. I just remember them celebrating his motion. I don't remember when Barack Obama was saying things about bringing guns tonight fights politically them. Talking about Barack Obama's vindictive nature or in two thousand thousand nine during the financial meltdown when he suggested that he would let the pitchforks. Have the bankers. I don't remember people in the media suggesting well. Isn't that a vindictive spiteful no then they were busy celebrating Barack Bama it's but when when Donald Trump is donald trump then all of a sudden. We're going to go into full psychological analyses by John Harwood. Who last I checked is not psychologist or psychiatrist? But in any case there was this was a very disturbing Tableau for the country It was dark because he's made clear that his mind minded dark. This is somebody in deep psychological distress right now. Self pitying insecure angry. He said almost plaintively at the end when he I was reading a text from struck to page Where he said I'm a good per I'm not a bad person? He he was sort of imploring people to accept that view of him. And the more that you got from media on a score the more trump dumping all over meteorology. Okay fine okay fine. I mean at least Chris. Matthews says who he is but Chris Matthews lays it out what the media actually thinks. This is where I like. Chris Matthews Chris Matthews in hiding the ball right. I mean Chris Matthews is of the left. He knows he's of the left. He says he's of the Left. It's the the people like Andrew Mitchell proclaimed. They're not of the left or the problem of Chris Matthews. Yesterday's say he's as a cut leader cult leader. Jim Jones feet up really cool eight GONNA die. Jim Jones who supported important half the Democrats in Congress. He's a leader. He's calling for a fight to the death. which by the way would be like amazing power in any case is go go go to the show get rumpled rumpled nick talking about banishing banishing Mitt Romney from the party? That's the language of a cult banishment. It's not a language of the constitutional of our American American tradition. Banishment for the one guy who dared to the United States. Senate vote to convict. I think it's also an attempt by the president. Basically tell his troops. Here's the fighting align right now. We're going after everybody. Who went after us? We're GONNA fight to the death we're GonNa get them so suspect number one in the death of the American political scene the media okay. The media have a lot of blame to Karen. I know they're a bunch of people on the left and they say well yeah. Polarization of the media is the providence polarization. The media is not the problem dishonesty in the media is the problem and there are people out there on the left side. Will you have left. Is Cheers Tumbler. On your on your table. Aren't you contributing to the death of American politics. No I'm honest about who we are over here right. We don't really like the political left very much by which I mean not liberals but people who is to shutdown debate people who believe that people should be a platform for having a finally eight and absolutely mainstream point of view. I'd rather than everybody be honest like Chris Matthews than dishonest like the folks over at CNN. Okay so suspect. Number one members of the media get suspect number two in just one second. I let us talk about something something that will make you comfortable. I'm talking about Tommy. John Underwear dudes. Valentine's Day is just around the corner..

"So that if a lawyer and a client are engaging in conduct that's intended to break the law, you can Pierce the attorney client privilege, but I think it's a good question. I think it's a real issue to be looked at well, you know, surrounding that question was in my mind was another sort of follow up, which is you know, how do you prove in a court of law? If necessary what someone's communicative intent is if they don't explicitly make an order, right? And I'm saying this because there was a lot of discussion about well. The president Michael Cohen claiming well, the president really didn't have to say anything explicit. You kinda knew what he meant the whole time. And here's one of those moments. This is actually when Michigan Republican congressman Justin Amash asked Cohen to elaborate on how the president implicitly makes his wishes known. Quote, Mr. Trump did not directly tell me to lie to congress. That's not how he operates and quote. Can you explain how he does this? Sure. It would be no different. If I said, that's the nicest looking tie. I've ever seen isn't it. What are you gonna do? You're gonna fight with him. He answer is. No. So yeah, it's the nicest looking I've ever seen. That's how he speaks. He doesn't give you questions. He doesn't give you orders. He speaks in code. And I understand the code because I've been around him for a decade pre Pereira. You must have had cases where you dealt with witnesses like this and say, well, you know, there's no smoking gun. There's no piece of paper. It's just kind of like I knew what he meant. Yeah. Look, some sometimes that's true. It happens. All the time. It depends on what the surrounding Evans's and on this point, by the way. I think the Republicans from their perspective if they trying to undermine the credibility of Michael Cohen missed opportunity. Most of them spent a lot of time talking about his potential book deal or movie deal or rehashing, the terms of his prior lying to congress and his guilty plea when there were other points to be scored on this very point, for example, on the one hand Michael Cohen says according to the to the transcript, you just played that Donald Trump speaks in code, and then he can imply that you lie, and he took that as a direction in other contexts, however, not relating to lie to congress. I think he made clear the Donald Trump directed him to tell ally reporter on the question of whether or not Donald Trump knew about the payoff before the election and parallel to that Michael Cohen testimony. I believe is the Donald Trump directed him to make the payment, and in fact in his guilty plea in the southern district New York, he says he engaged in certain conduct in the payoffs in coordination with and at the direction of Donald Trump. So the question, I don't know how far you get with it. But. See anybody explored at all is let's be clear on this. Mr. Cohen, you're saying that Donald Trump sometimes weeks in code and sometimes just direct you. How are we supposed to know the difference? There's a. There's a an incongruity in his in his testimony there which could be exploited at trial as well. Interesting. But that but you're saying that that is not a line of questioning that was followed yesterday. I didn't I didn't see that. Okay. Well, let's go back to the phones here quickly. It's Scott who's calling from Richmond. Vermont Scott, you're on the air. Hello. Thank you for taking my call. I just had a quick question. Michael Cohen has nothing to lose by doing what he's doing and nothing to gain as far as I know..

"This works in that area the case right i mean one theory is that there was a vacation and a lot of coincidences nothing bad happened and we've reported that theory another theory of the case is that were shenanigans but how does it work is it some sort of bribery collusion pile on where they get wind of what other allies on their side of the ledger doing and they say oh this looks like a an effort way to get influence with these relative novices might end up in charge of us policy or how does this actually play out so we're obviously into the realm of informed speculation are at this point but don't forget the new york's what i do baby okay well let's do it the new york times has reported nbc news is not confirmed about another trump tower meeting where the maradas air prints of blackwater fame who was also at this sales meeting was there with the emirati george nader and they offered essentially to help the trump campaign and so the question here is were they helping during the election did they step in after the election to try to broker a back channel so the russians could could essentially seek to extract concessions if they were looking for in exchange for the help they provided the trump team during the election these are all questions that we think the mo team is asking betsy i think one thing that's really important about this story that i sort of buried several paragraphs down is that there was a separate counterintelligence investigation specifically looking into the influence operations that the murat he's had in place going into the two thousand sixteen presidential election that's really important because what that means is that this is no longer just the russia investigation this is the foreign influence investigation another piece of this it's really important is the extent to which this is likely to raise temperatures in the white house one thing i can tell you that the single biggest.

"I'm smiling even though i really wanna be jumping out of my skin because the president is making sure aid of diplomacy he's almost making light well he is making light of our adversaries he's turned everything upside down today's the day when he declared by launching these tariffs against our allies the canadians the mexicans the europeans that they are national security threat at the same time that he's praising and practically finding over the north koreans and now we hear these rumors about him wanting to meet with putin which is not surprising but again everything is upside down you're not supposed to be overly flattering praising your adversaries you're supposed to keep the us national security interest in mind and be hard headed of course you can be charming but you really need to keep first principles in mind and that is what is the us objective what are we getting for the meeting what are we going to get at the end of the road is it possible that even if sloppy this could still land in in a good place if they pull off the meeting and it leads to some sort of non military type road to getting things the us wants well it depends what the non military road is so if they have a meeting right and they agree that they're going the north koreans agree to at least freeze their nuclear program and to a long term process as the president the president now understands this is not going to happen overnight so he's a bit more realistic the hopefully not letting the north koreans off the hook so if the north korean say we're gonna freeze ultimately we'll get rid of our nuclear weapons at some point in the future that's certainly better than fire and fury but what do the north koreans want an exchange if what they want is released relief from the sanctions they're already getting that from what i'm reading the newspapers there already ships now going from china and russia to north korea to greater pace so but they'll want more economic assistance our president has basically promised that together with the allies but what are the other things that north koreans won't we have to hold tight we.
