Democrats have demanded President Trump’s tax returns. But Secretary Mnuchin so far has refused to comply with the Democrat’s request. Do you think President Trump will be able to keep his tax returns secret for much longer?

Forget about impeachment. If they got hold of his tax returns they would bury him in the next election. That is why he does not want them made public!

drag line He’s definitely not a patriotic American. He doesn’t care what harm the President does to America. He cares only about himself and his pocketbook, going by his own words. And he definitely wants to contribute as little as he can get away with, just like trump.

Nikolai Collushnikov Another know-it-all who talks through his azz. The Oversight Committee has every right to obtain trump’s tax returns without a court order, just like they have subpoena power. In any case, trump litigated, and the court ruled against him. So he and Mnuchin are currently in contempt. I just wish House Democrats had the gumption to have Mnuchin jailed. This will have the benefit of focusing the minds of other recalcitrant trump minions. Who really wants to go to jail to protect this creature from his own criminality?

Nikolai Collushnikov if you live among facist and nazis everything to your left is leftist. CNN is a huge corporation and not the least left . It’s a capitalist enterprise with the only goal to make money for their 1% owners but also hate like most honest people the corrupt bastard in the WH that is always attacking democracy. Without free media Epstein would still be on the loose.

You're right Chris. I don't think that anyone thought they voting for an angel. I think they voted for the devil (if you will allow me this allusion) to save from the hell they were, and maybe still are, experiencing. We all thought he was himself sick and tired of the drudgery, and sought to use his super powers (he is a Billionaire, after all, and Billionaires can do as they wish. They always do, and you as well as I know that's true. Does Elon Musk does as he please? Well, he's flying missions to refuel and replenish orbiting satellites. He's transforming the vehicle as we know - I didn't say they all use their money in "repugnant" ways.... So Billionaires can cut right through the amalgamated layers of bureaucracy that gave rise to drudgery, and with one fell swoop, Trump, who is, after all, one of those Billionaires with 'super powers,' could everything that we perceived to be wrong with our daily lives, the governmental universe, and everything.

And I'm just not sure he's using his super powers for good, and that's the rub. That, we did not ask for.

Trump paying zero taxes might not be illegal, but laundering money for the Kremlin and various Russians is extremely illegal. The Trump family will soon see their day in prison, guaranteed!!! Bernie 2020 🇺🇸

Trump Backstabed the American Citizens. He is answerable to each & every American. And he should pay all the debts of the poeple in the form of income tax.
When a leader of any country is corrupt, how can u force citizens to follow the rules.

I remember the debate. It’s such hypocrisy. He’s using loopholes to not pay taxes, then turns around and complains about loopholes immigrants use to come into our country. Why can loopholes only be swayed to work for his orange ass. Illegals do more for our country than that ugly turd in the White House.

How is it fair that the Middle class hard working Americans pay all the taxes and the filthy rich pay none. It seems the rich have plenty of money to help rebuild Notre Dame but don't help the starving children on this planet and then you have this CROOK named Trump that only helps himself. By the way Ivanka used the Trump Charity as a personal bank account and that's why they closed it down because they got caught.

I've been a pensioner for 25 yrs and still pay four figure tax bills each and every year. I don't live to the same standard of this tax dodging scum bag. Its time the government bent hard on the bastard and seize all his assets and makes sure he pays every single dollar he's ever missed paying plus interest. Then what ever is left make him pay in fines before he enters uncle sam's very secure hotel system.

I'm guessing that the IRS doesn't actually check to see if the reported losses are real? I think this is what Trump is afraid of: They will find that A) He has been massively fibbing about his "losses and B) he is not now nor has he ever been a billionaire in the actual, literal sense and having the world's thinnest skin would mean his ego would suffer greatly.

Did Trump actually says near the beginning of this that he "never went bankrupt"? Did I hear that right?

He has an army of accountants to navigate the laws enacted by congress. Seems the root cause of any isssue is Congress and Inefficiency/Stupidity. When I was a kid there was a rumor Albert Einstein couldn't figure out the tax codes enacted by scumbag congressional members.

My first point:
This isnt even hidden to the Public! Trump had already admitted this on his book published in 1997
"The art of the Comeback".
In the the economic world there are stages
1. Expansion
2. Peak
3. Recession
4. Depression
5. Trough
6. Recovery
And repeat back to step 1.
He lost 1 billion from 1985' to 94', that stage is the Recession and the depression. Since he published
"The art of the comback" in 97' that stage of his business is the recovery and he is steadily climbing the charts since and the cycle of business continues. And since u didnt do ur research and it takes an Asian man half a world away with a couple of google searches to tell u that THERE WAS REAL ESTATE CRASH IN 90' to 91' if dont believe me check out dis guy
David Geltner "Massachusetts Intitute of Technology Department of Urban studies and planning, MIT center of Real Estate".
On My 2nd point:
On the IRS, any person with any knowledge on investment knows, that if ur business is in recession... U can carry on ur loses for about 20 yrs, to avoid a heavier burden that causes ur business to fail. And at the time ur Business had recovered and is now expanding the IRS gets there money, and the cycle of business continues to flow on slowly climbing up the charts.
Isnt ur tax stuff private in and not public America? because in my country its private

They couldn't get any of CNN anchors to do the monolougue because they all make multi millions and don't want the pot calling the kettle. Where is Don Lemon? Why doesn't he lead by example and disclose his. Don't worry all this silly bickering will soon be over. Once they get 5G rolled out we won't be concerned with politics or anything for that matter other than making sure the A.I.'s logarith running our new surveillence system doesn't think our behaviour needs correcting . Apparently the military was able to make some good advancement on using frequencies for crowd control that were less than lethal and not considered torture by the Geneva convention.

This video from a well known false propaganda outlet, has the sole purpose of causing violence, hate and division within the population. The facts stated are very well known public information from the 1990's and have no impact nor relevance in our present majestic economic times, other than the clear agenda of causing chaos and division like previous administrations have done. This video is an insult to the American people and everything we are together accomplishing with our new administration. Everybody MUST report this video and please stay away from CNN, a FAKE marxist propaganda outlet that answer and follow instructions from rogue groups in the compromised intel community, DOJ. This FAKE cheap pseudo news network survives ONLY because is forced in airports, hospitals and other public places. I encourage every American to avoid this filthy repugnant propaganda outlet. Call your cable company and ask them to block it. If they dont, cancel your service and get a different provider. We, The people with our Supreme Leader.
