NEW YORK — Following news that Donald Trump has asked the Supreme Court of the United States to bar his accounting firm from handing eight years of his tax returns to the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, Stand Up America spokesperson Ryan Thomas released the following statement:
“No one is above the law, including Donald Trump.
“This appeal to block the release of his tax returns is nothing more than a last-ditch effort to stymie a criminal investigation that’s breathing down his neck.
“It’s absolutely shocking the lengths Donald Trump will go to to shield himself from accountability. If Trump has nothing to hide, then he should immediately release his tax returns and give the American people the transparency they deserve.”
