Holly crap. He has been one of the most transparent Presidents in U.S. history.
Yes... "transparent" in the sense that he has made it perfectly clear
that he is a narcissistic man-child who wants to use the office of President to promote himself, his ego, and his business. That is "transparent" to all of us.
Why do we need to see his tax returns? There is no legal requirement for him to turn them over. That hasn't stopped the Democrat though. With zero probable cause they have gone on a witch hunt and requested a shit storm of subpoenas for him, anyone he has ever done business with, his children and yes even his grandchildren.
Actually, there is a legal requirement: the plain language of the tax code (Section 6103(f), if you are following along in your Tax Code guide) indicates that Congress does in fact have the legal authority to request and obtain tax information from any filer, including the president. The statute says the IRS “shall furnish” tax returns to the committee chair upon request and that’s the end of it.
Quoting Daniel Shaviro, Law Professor at Yale: "This is not an issue on which there is any possibility of reasonable disagreement. Any well-informed person who disagrees either that the Ways and Means Committee has an obligation to demand Trump’s tax returns as part of fulfilling its oversight duties or that Trump is legally obliged to turn them over is either a partisan hack or contemptuous of the rule of law. Trump has credibly been accused of engaging in criminal activity for decades. It’s undisputed that he is still profiting from his businesses. There is substantial information in the public record suggesting that he is for sale (or subject to blackmail) and that many of his public policy decisions have been made for corrupt reasons. The tax returns may help provide information that sheds light on his motives. It’s an indispensable part of congressional oversight, and Republicans as well as Democrats in the Congress ought to recognize this (and in private probably do, whether or not they care)."
...all while the Clinton's Money Laundering Foundation isn't even given a second look. How much has Bill Clinton's pay to play scheme netted the Clinton's? Upwards of $250 million is at least one number I have seen.
This topic is not about Bill Clinton. But you did make a nice attempt at deflection.
.And... by the way... in the USA holly is not considered to be crap. It is a useful Christmas decoration. Does the Russian Orthodox Church not use holly?
