Likely felons under multiple federal investigations probably should be careful where they cast stones.
Clinton had yet to hit Trump for not releasing his taxes until today and her spokesman said that she had not planned to hit Trump for his tax returns at the event before a man yelled about Trump’s taxes at Camden County College on Wednesday.“Here is what Donald Trump wants to do. He has released just one detailed proposal in this whole campaign,” Clinton said, referring to the candidate’s tax plan.
“What about his tax returns,” shouted a man in the audience, to which, Clinton responded, “Well, we are going to get to that.”“What about his taxes? We will get around to that too. Because when you run for president, especially when you become the nominee that is kind of expected,” Clinton said. “My husband and I have released 33 years of tax returns, we’ve got eight years on our website right now. So you have got to ask yourself, why does he not release them?”
Well, we know how miserly the Clintons are based on past tax returns.
In previous returns, when Mr. Clinton was the Governor of Arkansas and his wife was a partner in a Little Rock law firm, the Clintons had gone so far as to deduct $2 for underwear donated to charities. The deduction was ridiculed by comedians and pundits, and the White House did not itemize the Clintons’ $17,000 in charitable contributions on the 1993 return.
For what it’s worth, we believe Trump should release his taxes or face consequences from people who actually have credibility on the issue.
