Newt Gingrich Just Suggested The Supreme Court And Kavanaugh Will Protect Trump’s Tax Returns

During a meeting on Thursday with Karen Tumulty, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich shed new light onto another reason as to why Pres. Donald Trump may have wanted accused sexual assaulter Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court of the United States: to protect his tax returns.

During a live interview on Oct. 25 at The Washington Post, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said that if Democrats re-take control of the U.S. House of Representatives in the 2018 midterm elections and subpoena the president’s tax returns, it would likely force a fight in the U.S. Supreme Court. “And,” Gingrich said,”we’ll see whether or not the Kavanaugh fight was worth it.”

Gingrich further said this.

“This is a billionaire who has fought lawsuits his entire career, and he’s never noticed them. He doesn’t care. That’s why he has lawyers. So they can come at him from a hundred levels, he’ll just hire a hundred lawyers, and say ‘call me when it’s over, I’ve got to go do other things. I’m going to China, or I’m going to campaign.’

But I don’t think he has any fear of the Democrats ability to investigate.”

Tumulty pointed out that Trump has been “raising that fear.” Gingrich interrupted her to say that it’s because Trump wants everyone to go vote. So in effect, it’s Trump’s way to manipulate his ignorant base, who is, by the way, totally OK with being manipulated. Gingrich added that if the Democrats subpoena Trump’s tax returns, they’ll be trapped in a battle at the Supreme Court level.

“We’ll see whether or not the Kavanaugh fight was worth it.”

Whoa. Can they be any more blatant than this? And the Republican base is OK with it.

Here is the question. Why is Trump really hiding his tax returns? Is it because revealing them could present legal problems and conflicts of interest? Or is it because he’s not as rich as he says he is. Remember, he’s been hiding them since campaign days, before there was a potential conflict of interest. You be the judge.
