According to Jonathan Lemire of the Associated Press, Donald Trump is reportedly focusing his ire on Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, along with Neil Gorsuch,  for siding with the majority of justices who ruled on Thursday that the state of New York must be given his tax returns as part of a criminal investigation.
