Even Nixon released his taxes.
Even Nixon’s special counsel released the full report to congress.
Trump does not even measure up to the very low bar set by Richard Nixon.
Those who are exonerated by evidence are the most eager to reveal the evidence.
Longest audit in history, and no, audits don’t prohibit revelation. Caponeville is the best place for him.
Two pages will do: UNDER, AUDIT
Without the sarcasm of American humorists, our people would have gone mad a long time ago. Out of all the venal comments and the full intent to harm America, the slandering of some of our people and many of our allies hurts the most. It is torture plain and simple.
Trump has certainly lowered the Barr.
The amazing thing about #45 is that he just ignored what everyone else had to do, or were expected to do, and the GOP protected him from it. They could have stopped him in the year of the campaign – they didn’t. They could have stopped him at numerous points in the past two years – they haven’t. They will pay for this.
NO, HE DIDN’T, ACTUALLY. (4 word summary!)
Maybe you people ought to consider making it a prerequisite making tax returns public when running for any public office.
You can not believe a word that comes out of the lying Trump admin.
The Special Olympics will now pay for the wall, and Obamacare will be destroyed.
They tyrant Republicans have to go.
Now we are going into the world of fantasy.
I’ll say it again. He and his organization are money launderers. It is well known by the major banks. Deutsche Bank is under investigation in Germany. Rep. Nadler will hopefully be able to lay this out for all to see. Bannon had it right.
Barr puts out his opinion of the report of a 2+ year investigation given to him less than 48hrs earlier and everyone believes him. The republicans start processes to block the release of the report. Let the report become public and then make a decision on what is in it. At the moment I see more obstruction than revelation.
Conservatives/gop/republicans are jumping on this as total vindication.
The Barr edited summary os not the report itself. Okay, speaking as an INDEPENDENT:
Given the bases of several convictions and confessions there were attempts at collusion (which is itself a crime) by multiple members of the campaign, and at least one (Manafort) was in a situation in which his laundered money and tax scam could be held over him by the Russians and Russian allies who helped him do it (which is why the trial about his finances was held first).
Now some might say that despite multiple attempts at collusion that the campaign would not have done it if the opportunity arose. To that my response is “Huh? Then why so many people spending time trying?”.
The current interesting questions are these:
Is an employer responsible for the actions of his employees that were taken for his campaign, business, mob, drug cartel, whichever-type-of-entity when they were employees with whom he met?
If an employer (or mob boss if someone then uses it as a precedent) is not responsible for the actions of those he employs then is it collusion if he attempts to obstruct them talking about their own crimes, or is it obstruction only if he himself is charged with the crimes that were related to the obstruction attempts no matter how public those attempts were?
We might soon get courts creating some strange precedents which might be expanded in defenses by drug lords, CEOs of companies which endanger employees or pollute badly, and heads of mobs.
Technically, the Barr cover-up is three pages long. The first and last sheets are only half text.

Let’s face it, even if Trump only “cheated” on his taxes the legal way, by taking advantage of tons of loopholes and giveaways (which, of course, were the result of bribery long before Trump, and in most cases bribes paid by other people than Trump!), the American public has the right to see all of his returns. Trump won’t release them for three reasons: (1) He isn’t nearly as rich as he has spent decades lying that he is, even with the FOUR HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS he got from his criminal father (2) The aforementioned loopholes and giveaways probably mean that Trump paid damn little in taxes, a lower rate than the average middle-class taxpayer (3) A huge amount of his money came from Russia
Really, the RW Washington Examiner actually has an anti Trump article? Will wonders never cease
“Now, now, you don’t need to see Mueller’s report, for the same reason you don’t need to see Trump’s tax returns: You’re just far too stupid to understand them. Besides, you’re just ‘the people’- it’s not like we report to you or something!”
Oh my lord. It just occurred to me. The new campaign strategies will turn into “I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.”
Anyone care to point to the part of the Constitution or federal law that requires any politician to release their taxes?
If this was happening to another country, it would be hilarious. Like a guy slipping on a banana peel. Funny, if it’s not you. I’m thinking of going to Venezuela for a little time away from trump.
Another long 2 years …pfffffffft
