Gee, he lied about claiming he’d release them? There’s a stunner. Heck, nothing matters any longer. The criminal Clinton is hiding emails and she’ll skate going to prison because she’s part of the protected class.
And Trump? Does anything even matter with this clown?
Donald Trump says he does not plan to release his tax returns before the November election, according to the Associated Press.“There’s nothing to learn from them,” the presumptive GOP presidential nominee told the AP on Tuesday, adding that he’s facing an ongoing audit and that he doesn’t think voters care.
The IRS issued a statement in February saying that nothing prevented Trump from releasing his tax returns, after a series of calls by his opponents for the businessman to release his taxes.Mitt Romney speculated in March that Trump was trying to hide something in his financial past.
In response to calls to release his tax returns, Donald Trump has responded with any number of dodges. In January, he said that he was planning to release them. “We’re working on that now. I have big returns, as you know, and I have everything all approved and very beautiful and we’ll be working that over in the next period of time.” More recently, he has claimed that he could not release the returns until the IRS audit (that has been ongoing for, take your pick, the last three years or the last 12 years) was concluded. The IRS has noted that being the subject of an audit in no way prevents Mr. Trump from releasing his returns. And, of course, he could also release returns from previous years. Trump has also claimed that his filing of a financial-disclosure form with the FEC fulfills his obligation to offer transparency.
