Yes, Donald Trump is in very *real* legal jeopardy

Analysis by Chris Cillizza, CNN Editor-at-large

Updated 11:35 AM ET, Mon February 22, 2021

(CNN)The Supreme Court's rejection of Donald Trump's attempts to keep his tax returns out of the hands of Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance is a potent reminder of this fact: The former President is in real legal jeopardy -- on a number of fronts.

In the narrowest aperture what the court's ruling means is that Vance -- and the grand jury he has empaneled to look into hush money payments made in the run-up to the 2016 election to two women alleging affairs with Trump -- will get a look at Trump's most carefully guarded secret: His financial documents.

Which is a blow for Trump -- especially given a) how hard he fought the release of these documents, which include years of tax returns, to Vance and b) what we already know about Trump's involvement in the hush money scheme.

2. I bet Donnie has been up to his neck in money laundering, tax and bank fraud all his adult life.

He learned at his daddy's knee and has had a small army of CPAs and attys to help him do it.

3. I would say that's true. However they are getting 8 years worth

2012 to 2020 or so. The years to look at would be 2012 through 2014. Iím sure the rest are clean as he was running for President and was President. I wish we could get 1995 to 2000 now that might say something.

4. With the arrogance displayed

by IQ45, along with Uday and Qusay - I'm thinking that they were even more brazen in the past couple of years. After all, he WAS the PRESIDENT (ugh, just a bit of 'throw-up' in my throat...) and they KNEW they could get away with anything they wanted - even stealing an election.......
