Stand Up America Applauds Court Decision Ordering Trump to Give Manhattan DA Eight Years of Tax Returns
WASHINGTON - Following news that a federal appeals court has ordered Donald Trump to turn over eight years of personal and business tax returns, Stand Up America spokesperson Ryan Thomas released the following statement:
“While we expect that Trump will stop at nothing to block the release of his tax returns, even when ordered to hand them over as part of a criminal investigation, this decision is a critical victory for prosecutors. We commend both state and federal investigators for fighting Trump’s baseless claim that he cannot be held accountable for his criminal conduct because he is a sitting president.
