It's Getting Harder and Harder for Trump to Avoid Releasing His Tax Returns

    An interesting take on Trump's refusal to release his tax returns:

    "With less than eight weeks until Election Day, it looks like Donald Trump will be successful in not releasing his tax returns, becoming the first presidential nominee we can remember not doing so. But it's becoming harder and harder for him to avoid releasing them

    First is the news that New York's Democratic attorney general has launched an inquiry into the Trump Foundation (the Trump campaign has called in a "left-wing hit job").

    Second was the Washington Post's investigative piece noting that most of the Trump Foundation money comes from other people's money; that Trump passes the money to other charities and takes credit for it; and that he has used that money to buy himself a gift. ("One candidate's family foundation has saved countless lives around the world," President Obama said on the campaign trail yesterday. "The other candidate's foundation took money other people gave to his charity and then bought a six-foot-tall painting of himself.")

    And third is a new Newsweek article detailing how Trump's international business ties could become a significant conflict of interest if he becomes president.

    Any conventional politician would be feeling the heat here; of course, Trump isn't your conventional politician. But every day that goes by with Trump not releasing his taxes suggests that there is something to all of these stories."

    there are reported copies of his tax info as sealed court documents and working copies at professional situations. Wonder why this has not been hacked to the public by now.

    Because the Russians are doing most of the hacking and it's not in their interests to expose Lyin' Donald's embarrassing tax returns.

    It may be getting harder, but Trump will still stonewall. And likely at little political cost, at least with his fanatical supporters.

    As Trump himself has claimed, he could murder someone and he'd suffer no loss of support. What's refusal to release tax returns, compared to murder?

    Don't forget that Trump's supporters are sui generis--they're unique in character---so you're right about them, they're so infatuated with Trump that Trump can play with them like patty. The rest of the electorate, however, is a lot smarter than that group---and it's a larger group. Have faith, my friend. I still think, however, that there can only be two potential outcomes of this tax return issue: (1) Da Donald releases his tax returns under mega pressure from the public, and he loses big, OR (2) Da Donald does not release his tax returns, and he loses big. Again, I repeat that Hillary will not have a landslide win, but she will win regardless of Trump's tax returns.

    Dear sister, how does one know they're embarrassing, when one hasn't seen them? Pray tell. But somthing reall does stink about Mrs Clitoris.
