PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT: New York passes law so they can give Trump’s taxes to Democrats…

Earlier we told you that the New York State Senate had passed a bill so they could give Trump’s tax returns to Congress. Well now that bill has passed the legislature and is heading to Cuomo’s desk to sign:

NY POST – The tax filings of President Trump and all public elected officials in New York will be fair game for congressional Democrats under a new law.

The state Legislature Wednesday approved a bill that allows the state Department of Taxation and Finance to release tax returns of thousands of New Yorkers upon the official request by Congress.

Gov. Cuomo previously said would support the idea.

The newest iteration of the bill passed the Assembly in an 85 to 49 vote, and 31 to 21 in the state Senate.

An official request from the House Ways and Means, Senate Finance Committee and the Joint Committee on Taxation must be made in order to obtain Trump’s state tax return.



This isn’t about “all public officials” in New York. This is about Trump.

This is presidential harassment by Democrats in the State of New York helping Democrats in Washington fish for anything they can find to destroy Trump in the election next year. Or find ‘grounds’ to begin impeachment proceedings. It’s disgusting.

And of course Cuomo is going to sign it. He’d never risk his entire political career over a bill designed to help Democrats take out Trump.

  1. If Obama’s crack IRS team could not find fault with Trump’s taxes for 8 full years, why do the Democrats think they can dig up dirt now?

    This only backfires on Obama.

  2. Even if Democrat hot heads finally find a way to get rid of Trump, they can never get rid of the backlash against them in 2020.

  3. NO ONE wants anyone investigating their own taxes with fine tooth comb. NO ONE.
    Democrats touched the third rail. The nation crosses their legs collectively in protective mode. Democrats are scaring the heck out of everyone.

  4. It’s beyond ridiculous when they pass a law to go after an enemy, one specific enemy. You’re right Scoop, it isn’t about “all public officials” in New York.
    When it’s all said and done, I wouldn’t blame Trump if he sold all his properties in NY, told them to F-off and moved to Florida.

  5. Well we know they will Never allow any Loons tax returns to be seen! This is Tyranny folks and to all the dumbed down..I want to say Thanks for destroying this country…

    1. @New West Just a clarification for all here to see……….This is solely for Trump’s New York State tax returns only. Not any Federal Tax returns, or any other state tax returns he might be filing.

  6. Sure seems like it would amount to a bill of attainder, but I’m sure a little thing like that would stop them.

  7. If signed, then the GOP should go “Mutually Assured Destruction” and request tax returns for every local, state and federally elected Democrat official in NY. You think they’re gonna like it when we start combing through De Blasio & Cuomo’s tax returns for any given reason?

    Play their game & playing it better is the only.way to stop them

  8. Ok, I want AOC’s tax returns released as well. If they can do this to a president then they can do this to me, an ordinary NYS citizen, as well.

    While we are out at, why not release tax returns of all the NY Yankees with their 40 million dollar contracts. Hey NY is having a garage sale on liberty

  9. I hope the Republicans win the majority of the HoR in 2020 so they can request Cuomo’s tax returns.

    1. Read the LA Times comments about Biden and you know there is a huge backlash against Democrats growing even in California. They over-reached and under-performed.

  10. LET IT HAPPEN.

    A) Donald has nothing to hide or worry about because he’s pure as the driven snow maga maga maga.

    B) Once we get a Republican Congress, we can use this law to destroy New York Democrats – from the governor to the state assemblymen to the mayor to the union bosses to the influence peddlers. Because you know damn well they don’t play their taxes straight like us common peasants.

    This is New York being short-sighted as ever. LET IT HAPPEN and then exploit the hell out of it. The only one who’s threatened by this is Donald, and screw him.

  11. Democrats love facism!

    The minute Democrats in house Supeona Trump’s taxes, The Senate Republicans should Supeona the taxes of every member of Congress from NY

  12. Heard about an hour ago on the radio that the Dems poll numbers are down & Trumps are going up.

    Dems are so demonic! I pray Trump get’s a yuge victory over these monsters. This is unprecedented hatred playing out before our eyes.

  13. Seems like an ex post facto law, which is prohibited by the Constitution, if it applies to people who have already been elected to office and are now being targeted.

    Regardless of whether it’s unconstitutional, though, the potential for politicized investigations is obvious. And given that it’s the heavily Democratic New York State, we can be sure the law would not be applied evenly, but only to Republicans.

  14. What happened to federalism? Isn’t there a federal law that would have supremacy over this law? If not, pass one! Article six of the constitution.

  15. This will probably end up hurting those mafia-connected New York Dems a lot worse than it will effect Trumpm.

    1. That’s what I’m saying. Go after them 10 times as harder. It’s the only way they’ll stop if they realize their political careers are in the same kind of danger

    1. @danaellen I don’t care about his transcripts. I want to know what he knew and when about Trump/Russia. Things I’m reading say it’s a lot. He needs to sit in front of a grand jury and then be indicted and prosecuted.

  16. What do they hope to gain? Let’s say they succeed and everyone sees his taxes and they’re as bad as they think. So what? I only care of how good a job he’s doing as president, and I suspect that most people who support him only care about that also.

  17. This will go to court. Wait for it……….and Trump will win. My guess is he’s heard about what they’re trying to do and already has a strategy to stop it.

  18. I would say that the law will seriously be abused, but quite frankly passing the law itself is a serious abuse of power.

  19. If wealthy people in New York State want privacy about their income they will just have to move out.

    1. @Locks Unfortunately, if they fall into any financial class above poverty, and especially if they are moving or relocating a big business, NYS goes after them in a big financial way. They can’t easily escape the insanity.

  20. This is Utilitarianism at it’s worst. These asshats just opened the books for Schumer, Gillibrand, & the rest of the NY State government reps. They’re literally too stupid to realize how this will bounce back on them when the GOP takes the house back. I have a funny feeling Trump’s state returns will very complex, showing all the I’s & T’s dotted. It will also show he paid a crap load in STATE Taxes. This has the potential to be an all-timer egg on their face.

  21. Why did Samantha Powers demand hundreds of FISA unmasking orders in the 11th hours of the Obama administration?

    Back to basics, folks. Obama scams are unraveling.

  22. If Obama’s crack IRS team could not find fault with Trump’s taxes for 8 full years, why do the Democrats think they can dig up dirt now?

    This only backfires on Obama.
