If he's got nothing to hide, he should release them.

8 ( +10 / -2 )

He doesn’t need to, doesn’t necessarily mean he has something to hide. They can subpoena his tax records, now whether the Democrats will get them or not is an entirely different ball game.

-15 ( +3 / -18 )

But you'd welcome the release of his tax returns, regardless?

He doesn’t need to, doesn’t necessarily mean he has something to hide. They can subpoena his tax records, now whether the Democrats will get them or not is an entirely different ball game.

Sounds like you think he does though, considering you used the word "necessarily". His entire life has been full of criminal dealings, his taxes are probably more than incriminating.

And they will most likely get them with a subpoena. Lets see what they have to say.

12 ( +12 / -0 )

He doesn’t need to, doesn’t necessarily mean he has something to hide.

Yes it does.

Trump has always crowed about communicating directly and frankly to the American public, through Twitter and rallies. A real man of the people. His excuse is phony. Being under audit does not prevent disclosure of tax returns.

He owes it to the honest tax payers of the United States.

11 ( +11 / -0 )

He said he’d release them but this was a lie.

12 ( +12 / -0 )

I don't like Trump at all, but this seems like a vindictive move.

Trump defied decades of precedent as a presidential candidate by refusing to release the tax documents 

And still he was elected. That suggests those who elected hims don't see it as such a "critical" matter.

-11 ( +1 / -12 )

IRS and U.S. Treasury officials were not immediately available for comment.

Given they're led by Trump appointees, that makes sense. Especially if to secure their fat govt positions they, too, want to have Trump's investments hidden from public eye.

Given Trump's ongoing support for big oil corporations (including denying climate change exists except as a Chinese hoax, cutting funding for alternatives to burning hydrocarbons, and increasing military spending to further finance US global military support for big oil), the public should be able to learn how much he's invested there.

Given Trump's ongoing support for big-war industries, the public should be able to learn how much he's invested there.

Given how much Trump's properties charge the US taxpayers each time he uses one of his properties, the public should be able to learn how much he's personally profited from his golf games.

Among others.

Corrupt businessman, corrupt politician. What are Trump, his family, and the elite he's serving trying to keep covered.

Well, he's a proven scammer and known liar. Obviously people will want to see his taxes to make sure he isn't abusing his position to enrich himself. I mean this is a guy who solicited money for charity then used the money to pay his own bills. Not really rocket science.

Two types here... One knows he's a scammer and wants to see his taxes as a form of oversight to make sure the proven scammer isn't doing anything he shouldn't be doing. The other knows he a scammer and wants to keep his taxes hidden to get a wall or keep a racist as President.

Again, not really rocket science.

8 ( +9 / -1 )

Release the returns.

8 ( +9 / -1 )

Yes it does.

No, he really doesn’t.

“Congress must have a legitimate legislative reason for accessing the returns,” Keith Whittington, a professor of politics at Princeton University, told ABC News. Whittington predicted that Congress could identify valid reasons to examine a sitting president’s tax returns, but obtaining Trump’s tax returns from his years as a private citizen “might be a little more complicated.”

But legal experts warned that overbroad requests for Trump’s personal tax filings could also backfire on Democrats and establish unwanted precedents.

“A fishing expedition into the president's taxes could open up politically motivated efforts to divulge others' taxes, at the price of privacy,” Harold Krent, Dean of the Chicago-Kent College of Law, told ABC News.

Yup.

A real man of the people. His excuse is phony. Being under audit does not prevent disclosure of tax returns.

Uhhhh....name calling won’t change a thing...real man..lol.

He owes it to the honest tax payers of the United States.

Only Democrats care about his taxes, obsessively. I could care less. Not putting money in my pocket.

-11 ( +0 / -11 )

Two facts: Every president's returns are audited; Being under audit is no excuse to prevent release. The only reason Trump has not released his returns is that he doesn't want to, despite his lies to the contrary.

But congress has the power to subpoena them if cause is given. Ever hear of the "emoluments clause"? - that's cause.

Good luck, it’s going to be a battle for the Democrats, they might not get what they want.

Even if there is nothing incriminating it will more than likely provide even more evidence to what his actual worth is... something which a lot of his supporters claim is truly great... but a reveal could be truly embarrassing.

Turn ‘em over, Donald. You might still be hiding evidence of collusion with the Ruskies!

Hide the college grades.

Hide the White House visitor logs.

Hide the tax returns.

Hide the Mueller report.

I'm sensing a pattern.

If the IRS is already claiming it won't cooperate without being compelled, then the chairman should just issue a subpoena now.

Everybody I know cheats tax, so he is just a regular guy. With loads of lawyers.

Then why don't you?

Tax fraud is not only a crime and morally reprehensible, it essentially steals from people who are honest with their returns.

Trump supporters do not care about fraud if it's their man in the WH. Love the moral integrity of this cult! Winning!

If he's got nothing to hide, he should release them.

oh hes got plenty to hide, when you minus all his debts ( from the self proclaimed king of debt)

from his real assets ( also shown to have inflated assets prices and a number of his properties) then hes really not as rich as he makes himself out to be.

3 ( +4 / -1 )

Everybody I know cheats tax, so he is just a regular guy. With loads of lawyers.

but when the big guys cheat they avoid $millions in taxes, which mean many more smaller taxpayers have to pay more to make up the shortfalls. they dont have the money to hide behind lawyers, accountants.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

It would be interesting to see how much he's inflated his wealth to obtain loans, how much of his income is derived from Russia, and whether he actually pays any taxes, or just gets refunds.

That provision is for lesser politicians (congressmen, senators, cabinet members, etc.) selling favors In exchange for moving up the political food chain. It doesn't pertain to President Trump because he is already at the top of the hill.

-12 ( +1 / -13 )

And still he was elected. That suggests those who elected hims don't see it as such a "critical" matter.

elected or not, tax avoidance is a crime under US law, whether people think its critical or not is irrelevant

There’s a good reason why the current occupant of the White House doesn't want them to be public knowledge.

So, what's the problem Trump people? It's just going to show that Trump has Billions and Billions- right? Won't it make him look good? How many billions does Trump say he has?

You know what? That's not true! Any politician, from dog catcher to president, who uses his office to benefit personally is in violation of the act. From Trump's DC hotel to his golf courses to Mar a Lago (destined to come down as a symbol of Trump's corruption), this president cannot help himself but to grift and lie about it on his tax returns. In fact, what will be interesting to see is which lies where inserted and which omitted.

5 ( +6 / -1 )

Yeah, I’m sure Mueller already thought to look there....

Worst case it will show that Trump is not part of the "B" club and he will no longer be able to make the claim that is is successful like a real "B" man like Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos. Just get those tax records for some real entertainment

> That provision is for lesser politicians (congressmen, senators, cabinet members, etc.) selling favors In exchange for moving up the political food chain. It doesn't pertain to President Trump because he is already at the top of the hill.

It clearly says no such thing. It applies to anyone holding an office of "trust" which the Department of Justice has long officially recognized as including the president. I

It is also not specifically targeted against preventing people from corruptly moving up the political career food chain. It is explicitly targeted at preventing foreign governments from gaining influence over the United States government via gifts to politiicians at any level. That might include people lower down who would use such gifts to further their careers up the ladder, but it would be idiotic to say that it applied to everyone except the most powerful person in the chain who would be the most obvious target of foreign governments seeking to gain such influence.

Given Trump’s pathological boasting/lying, it is inconceivable that his tax records are the record of a man who is as successful and clean as he says he is.

Seeing the orange balloon shrivel would be entertaining.

Miyam: The Dims are so laughable

Why? It’s good to keep the pressure on Trump for transparency since he’s a proven scammer and known liar. It’s not like we’re presenting some radical, illogical idea.

Some might even say that working to protect the proven scammer would be more laughable. But not everyone, I suppose.

As best as I can tell, the situation is that Trump fans will deliver a win for Trump even it it comes at their own expense. I mean, by legitimizing scammy politicians hiding their taxes, what do they get out of it? It’s a net loss for them and everyone else.

It’s not based on any kind of logic so it must be a purely emotional decision. Some kind of satisfaction with supporting Trump that they will work against their own self-interests. “I’ll lose, but he’ll win.”

People with something to lose don’t behave this way.

I heard Fox doesn’t like her because she rips Trump for not keeping his promises, particularly about the wall. It seems this is unacceptable on that fair and balanced channel.

I think ripping a politician for not keeping promises is a good thing, regardless of what party.

He doesn't want us to know how far in debt he is with China, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and anybody else who might have purchased US foreign policy from him. Also doesn't want us to know about any recent activities by the Trump Organisation which have saved him taxes. The historical scams have been fully documented by the NYT and never challenged by Trump, which means they are true. What we don't know is whether they were replaced by different scams. And finally, he doesn't want us to know that his net worth, after deducting all the debt, will be very much less than he has led us to believe. And that's before the disgorgements of earlier unpaid taxes for which criminal penalties no longer apply, unfortunately.

Did I miss anything? Whether he is being audited or not is totally irrelevant and almost certainly untrue anyway, since, well, Trump said it.

as for the noise from Wind turbines.. the phrase "is a cancer" could be used as a way of saying it's a problem for those living within the near vicinity of those Turbines... just as "Spreading like a caner" is used to refer to something bad expanding across a populace.

"Tabloids" tend to manipulate statements in such a way, the UK's Daily Express and Mirror are great examples of that in action, as too the Sun.. they do so, to appeal to their readership. I'd imagine the same situation exists in the US.

How do you know he lied?

It's always interesting to me when people who don't know Trump personally, who presumably have never met him, try to make assertive statements about him regarding things of which they almost certainly have absolutely no personal knowledge.

Also, not all charitable donations are reported on a person's tax returns. I'm sure people donate money all the time and then never claim it on their taxes.

He owes it to the honest tax payers of the United States.

Donniedouche has a criminal record already, and his recent actions prove it! He's got his hands so dirty, involved in everything. And if I recall correctly VP Spiro Agnew resigned from office because he was caught cheating on his taxes.

What could be wrong with more information, especially if it exonerates the "stable genius"? Or, is it just so exoneratey, that we will be sick of all the exonerating?
