The Daily Beast reports:
After telling Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that he thought the Supreme Court ruling that the president must turn over his financial records to New York investigators was “terribly decided,” Giuliani said, “They have no reason to believe that there is anything wrong with his tax returns. All these tax returns have by and large—maybe not the last one—but all of them have been audited, all of them have either been passed on or settled.”
That last statement directly contradicted both Trump and his spokesperson’s excuse for not just releasing the returns to the public voluntarily. “There should be some finality in tax returns,” he continued. “In other words, we get audited, we make a deal, we pay the government, you don’t come after me forever for that.” From there, Giuliani moved on to spout unfounded conspiracy theories about “Soros-elected, anarchist DAs” that “are there to undermine the law.”

WATCH: For years, Donald Trump has been claiming that he can’t release his tax returns because at least some of them are still under audit by the IRS.
But the president’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani blew up that excuse once and for all. https://t.co/4AlRZ8fatT
