Closing in on the 'Trump crime family'

Manhattan DA Is Closing In On The Trump Crime Family, Still Waiting On SCOTUS reports AZ BlueMeanie.

For some unexplained reason, the U.S. Supreme Court uncharacteristically has failed to take any action on Donald Trump’s lawyers’ emergency filings related to a Manhattan grand jury’s subpoena of Trump tax returns, effectively thwarting part of the investigation.

CNN reports, The Supreme Court is still sitting on Trump’s tax returns, and justices aren’t saying why:

The Supreme Court’s inaction marks an extraordinary departure from its usual practice of timely responses when the justices are asked to block a lower court decision on an emergency basis and has spurred questions about what is happening behind the scenes.

Chief Justice John Roberts, based on his past pattern, may be trying to appease dueling factions among the nine justices, to avoid an order that reinforces a look of partisan politics. Yet paradoxically, the unexplained delay smacks of politics and appears to ensnarl the justices even more in the controversies of Trump.

_ BIG SNIP_

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. has also hired the “master” of the modern use of the federal RICO statute to take down criminal enterprises, Mark Pomerantz. If you’re unfamiliar with his name, this is the guy who took down New York’s mafia crime families. Now he is pursuing the Trump crime family.

Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance has stepped up his investigation into former President Donald Trump with the addition of a former federal prosecutor who’s highly regarded for his expertise in untangling complex financial dealings and white-collar crimes, the New York Times reported Thursday.

A former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York where he spent three years as the head of the Criminal Division, Mark Pomerantz has formally agreed to assist Vance’s team in its investigation of Trump and his privately owned businesses for possible tax and bank fraud, people said to be familiar with the investigation told the Times.

ANOTHER SNIP

If the U.S. Supreme Court stops protecting Donald Trump, and prosecutors can get access to his tax records and financial documents, with Mark Pomerantz on the prosecution team the Trump crime family will finally be brought to justice.
