    Judge puts Democrats' suit for Trump's tax returns on hold

    Judge puts Democrats' suit for Trump's tax returns on hold - POLITICO

    "A federal judge has put House Democrats’ suit for Donald Trump’s tax returns on hold until a separate legal fight over congressional oversight central to the president's impeachment gets worked out."

    "Democrats have urged the appeals court to rule quickly in a bid to determine whether the former Trump aide has evidence that could be folded into their presentation at the upcoming Senate trial that will determine whether the president should be removed from office or to assist them in drafting additional articles of impeachment."

    ————————

    Let’s see Trump’s tax returns! Many questions will be answered!!!!

    Yes, questions like how much more than his democrat counterparts did her pay for repeated consecutive years.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son, and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

    It's still unbelievable to me that the democrats are obsessing over Trump's taxes. The only thing they will show is how much he made in a specific year -- and, when it comes to the taxes of a wealthy person -- sometimes it doesn't even accurately reflect that due to the number of tax laws that their accountants use to shift money from one place to another.

    When (if) they are released, they will not show what companies or countries he did business with -- none of that is on an income tax return.

    Just the idea that the democrats have gone after his taxes tells me -- they -- not Trump are the ones who are a risk to this nation. If they get their way on this one, it will set a precedent for anyone's taxes to be requested by an employer, etc. Bad and stupid move, democrats. But, totally predictable for your shortsighted party.

    How the heck does this suddenly set a precedent for employers to get tax returns? Are you equating congress with a typical employer?

    The actual question is...WHY the heck does anyone need to see his (or anyone else's) tax returns? Unless (per law) the IRS is doing an audit, then IMHO EVERYONE's tax information should remain confidential.

    Seems to me this is just another witch-hunting attempt seeking to find dirt, ANY dirt to "get Trump."

    Another one of those "if he has nothing to hide, then he should be willing to show us all" arguments against a persons basic right to privacy.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Simplistic approach with multiple failure points...

    What about prosecutors?

    State child support enforcement agencies?

    Executors of estates?

    There is a whole, well thought out section of federal law that covers this...

    26 U.S. Code SS 6103 - Confidentiality and disclosure of returns and return information | U.S. Code | US Law | LII / Legal Information Institute

    Why did congress give the Committee on Ways and Means, Committee on Finance, and Joint Committee on Taxation unrestricted access to ALL tax returns?

    During the Michael Cohen testimony, Cohen stated that Trump routinely commits tax fraud by overestimating assets' value when asking for loans and underestimating them for tax purposes. Seeing his taxes will make this clear.

    If releasing the tax records wasn't going to be damning, he would have released them, as he promised multiple times.
