The District Attorney in Manhattan, Cyrus Vance, Jr., subpoenas eight years of Trump federal and state tax returns as part of a criminal probe into hush money payments allegedly made to Stephanie Clifford, AKA porn actor Stormy Daniels.
The New York Times has transcripts of Donald Trump’s IRS tax returns from 1985-94. They show huge business losses of $1.17 billion in a decade, and profits from shady deals in which Trump bought stock, spread false rumors of a take-over, then sold his stock quickly at a profit. Will revelations from this “bombshell” story have any effect on Trump supporters or his reelection chances? Do Democrats now have additional reason to press for release of his last six years of tax returns?
Legislation in 17 states would remove President Donald Trump from the 2020 presidential election ballot if he doesn’t release his tax returns. Trump has said his IRS returns are perfectly legal and his finances excellent, so why shouldn’t the president just release the documents to make the issue go away, and to shut up the Democrats?
