DOJ backs decision to not release Trump’s tax returns

The DOJ ruled in a new advisory opinion released Friday that the IRS would have been breaking the law if it had turned President Trump’s tax returns over to Congress without his permission. The ruling is the basis for Treasury Secretary Mnuchin’s decision to refuse to comply with a House committee’s demand for the tax returns.

Taxation is Theft

Well, it's pretty obvious to everyone but a liberal and a mentally-challenged individual (but i repeat myself) that the ONLY reason congress wants his tax filings is to try and dredge up anything they can on the man. What I find hilarious is that, we can assume, Trump's taxes are extremely complicated because of his businesses and holdings... yet these rubes in Congress think they'll be able to figure them out.

If there's nothing legal going on with his taxes, then what's the point? Trump's supports arent going to abandon him for the Dems that easily.

Doubtful Congress could understand 1st page of 1040; let alone the hundreds of schedules that follow initial 1040

Because they don't want to be subpoenaed for doing their job. They are Democrats, they know the dnc are desperate for a scapegoat.

Trump should never release his taxes but if he does, he must stipulate that Pelosi, her husband, and children must release theirs as well. You'll see some crawfishing real quick!
