Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance responded to the Supreme Court rejecting Trump’s recent offer to hide his tax returns with a three-word tweet.
Vance responded to the news that the Supreme Court has again denied Trump by tweeted:
The work goes on.

It has been clear for over a year that, despite all the potential crime surrounding Donald Trump, the Manhattan District Attorney’s investigation was most likely to have resulted in criminal charges against Trump, his adult children and his business.
Vance needs Trump’s tax returns to compare with other evidence and possibly to confirm criminal conduct related to banking and tax fraud. The prosecution recently brought in a former federal attorney who specializes in white-collar and organized crime. This is an indication that Trump and his company are being treated like a criminal organization. Vance has also summoned the New York Tax Commission.
As Trump’s second impeachment trial has shown, the former president is struggling to find qualified legal counsel because of his history as a terrible client refusing to pay his bills.
Trump has been instructed multiple times to file his tax returns, and when he finally does, it will only be a matter of time before charges will be brought against the former president, his children and members of the Trump organization.
