Democrats are going to insane lengths to go after Donald Trump.
There’s no way that they can justify what they’re doing.
Democrats have come up with a new scheme to target Donald Trump.
Chicago owes former President Donald Trump a million-dollar tax refund.
The Hill reports that the “Cook County state’s attorney is seeking to block a $1 million tax refund that the Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board ruled is owed to former President Trump on his Chicago skyscraper’s 2011 tax bill.”
The building was “over-assessed” according to a unanimous vote of Illinois’ state property tax board.
The states originally didn’t accept Trump’s argument that the vacant stores in the building had no value. However, they changed their opinion.
But Cook County isn’t willing to own up to their mistake.
Instead the Cook County State’s Attorney, who normally handle crime cases, is using government resources to keep Trump from receiving his check.
Kim Foxx, the Cook County State’s Attorney, “filed a lawsuit this month with the Illinois Appellate Court against the refund, stating that the former president’s refund would take away taxpayer dollars from Chicago public schools and other agencies to pay for it,” per The Hill.
The Cook County States Attorney would not comment on their rationale besides saying that the refund would come out of the pockets of Cook County taxpayers.
The Chicago Sun-Times claimed that Chicago Public Schools would lose $540,000 if they gave Trump the money the Illinois Property Tax Appeal Board ruled is owed.
While Foxx’s office is focused on the Trump, they are ignoring criticism the city’s police officials who are blaming the state’s attorney’s office for the city’s crime spike.
“What’s happening in the courts is creating this unsafe environment for all of us,” Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown said, following the July 4th weekend, rife with violence. “I hear a lot about what the State’s Attorney is doing. She charged these people with murder we brought before them that we’ve arrested – and the courts, the courts released them back into the community, creating an unsafe environment for all of us.”
Foxx replied blaming the police instead.
This news comes on the heels of a top Justice Department official telling the Treasury Department to give copies of Trump’s tax returns to Congress.
Acting Assistant Attorney General Dawn Johnsen, of the DOJ Office of Legal Counsel, wrote in a memo that the House Ways and Means Committee’s “principal stated objective of assessing the IRS’s presidential audit program” is a “plainly legitimate area for congressional inquiry and possible legislation.”
The DOJ office already gave an opinion in 2019 that there was no legitimate legislative purpose for Congress to access those records.
