The other day he said nobody cared about his taxes.

I think we can all be quite confident that he ain't paid no taxes for decades.

Probably just on stocking up his liquor cabinet -- seeing it's collected at the retail level....


heh

Makes no difference if he didn't pay any taxes. AFAIK, he's done nothing illegal in that regard, nor is he being accused of illegally avoiding taxes.

It's his ties to Russia, China and Middle Eastern Muslim dictators which might be showed by his tax returns, which is, of course, why he continues to hide them.

It's already been established that his inner circle - both past and present - have substantial ties to Russia. That's not in question anymore. What's in question is how deep his personal involvement is. Tax returns might show that.

I believe he said his lawyer advised him not to do it while under audit.

Who cares anyway? There is no law requiring a presidential candidate release tax returns. Nixon didn't (until he was already in office, but not as a candidate). Gerald Ford didn't either.

It's just another thing for people to whine about. I actually love that it bothers people so much. I hope republicans go back to never releasing tax returns just to piss liberals off.

If his lawyer advised him to do it, he should have said that. Instead, he fabricated this lie that he couldn't due to the audit. I know that they aren't required to (and frankly, all of congress, the top 5 in the line for presidential succession, and the 9 members of SCOTUS should have to as well IMO). It is more of a way to serve as a check. If they are handed the reigns of the country, they owe it to the electorate to be as transparent as possible to minimize corruption.

This is PRECISELY why he should provide them. It is potentially a huge conflict of interest. How are we able to know if we can't see them? We are about to give this guy a blank check with no way to see the bank statement.

Exactly. Whether he paid his taxes isn't the concern, although that's pretty crappy, it's where he may have gotten money from or who he owes money too. Could be nothing, could be something very interesting.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Inauguration Countdown
I've been listening to NPR - about all the "protestors" who are going to protest the inauguration....

My conclusion ------


So much for "peaceful transfer of power"....

You don't get this many angry, stupid people in one place (and yeah - I'm counting both the pro and anti Trump camps as angry and stupid) --- without violence happening....

I don't see it a matter of if -- but -- how many people get killed over this shit......


It ain't gonna be pretty......

Reading comprehension is your friend. I'll requote it to make it easier for you:

Paul Manafort ties to Russia
Michael Flynn ties to Russia
Rex Tillerson ties to Russia

And now it's been discovered that, despite Trump's lies to the contrary, the Trump team has been in frequent contact with counterparts in Russia. Source: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/...27111.html

How many more examples would you like?

Once Trump releases his tax returns, we'll know how deep he personally - or business-wise - is indebted to the Russians, the Chinese and some ME Islamic dictators.

If he has nothing to hide, then he should be hiding nothing. He's no longer a private citizen; his affairs are a matter of national security.
