Unhinged Democrats Vote To Release Trump’s Tax Returns

Well, of course they did. They argued to the courts since 2019 that they just wanted to review them in committee, and even the Supreme Court was dumb enough to fall for that, seemingly not saying in their opinion that the House committee was the only one authorized to look at the tax returns

House Democrats Vote to Release Donald Trump’s Tax Returns

In an unprecedented move, Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday voted to release several years’ worth of former President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

The committee’s vote came after chairman Richard Neal (D-MA) started a lengthy court battle in 2019 to review Trump’s tax returns. Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court denied Trump’s request to block an appeals court order ruling that he turn over his tax returns and financial information to the committee, ABC News reported.

Members of the Ways and Means Committee met behind closed doors on Tuesday for more than three hours before ultimately voting along party lines, 24-16, to release Trump’s tax records.

They stated that they will do redactions *wink wink*. Trump’s spokesman Steve Cheung said

This unprecedented leak by lameduck Democrats is proof they are playing a political game they are losing. If they are so hell-bent on releasing President Trump’s tax returns—which show he built a very successful business and created numerous lucrative assets throughout his career—they should release the tax returns of Nancy Pelosi and her weirdo husband Paul to see how much dirty money they have made from selling out America and jeopardizing our national security. Alongside their insider trading and shady stock deals, Congress needs to legitimately investigate their self-enriching financial scams. If this injustice can happen to President Trump, it can happen to all Americans without cause.

This is simply about Trump Derangement Syndrome. About being malicious and petty

However, the top Republican on the committee, Kevin Brady (R-TX), warned about the potential consequences of the committee’s vote and said the committee has unleashed a “dangerous new political weapon” that “jeopardizes the privacy of every American.”

“Ways and Means Democrats are unleashing a dangerous new political weapon that reaches far beyond President Trump, and jeopardizes the privacy of every American,” Brady said in a statement before Tuesday’s vote.

Brady added:

Going forward, partisans in Congress have nearly unlimited power to target political enemies by obtaining and making public their private tax returns to embarrass and destroy them. This is not limited to public officials, but can target private citizens, business and labor leaders, and Supreme Court justices.

Democrats should remember that they set the precedent, and …..that elected Republicans do not have the fortitude to do the same. Really. They know this. We know this. We’d love if elected Republicans would fight fire with napalm, but, they won’t. If they had any cajones they’d fight to release the full tax returns of Pelosi and all the Democrats on the Ways and Means committee.

    The conservative US Supreme Court concurred with Congress that the American people had a legitimate reason so see trump’s tax returns. Trump’s own IRS did NOT audit his returns as they were supposed to (wink wink). Then-President Trump repeatedly lied to the American people that his returns were being audited (they weren’t) and further lied that he would release his returns (he didn’t) as every President from Nixon forward had.

    Rep Kevin Brady (R-TX) breathlessly said:

This is not limited to public officials, but can target private citizens, business and labor leaders, and Supreme Court justices.

    A 1924 law allows certain congressional committees to obtain tax returns from the Treasury Department, which oversees the Internal Revenue Service. The law says that the Treasury Secretary “shall furnish” the records requested by the House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Committee on Finance and the Joint Committee on Taxation.

    Republicans consider the House request to be illegitimate but examining the tax returns of a President refusing to give up his international business dealings AND refusing to reveal his tax returns for conflicts of interest seems appropriate. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin defied Congress followed by trump lawyers tying the issue up in court for years.

    nuGOPhers will have the same tasks when hoping to smear Pelosi, Michael Moore, Paul Krugman, Dr Fauci etc. And the courts are unlikely to rule in favor of the nuGOP.

      There is nothing “reasonable” about harassing and dogging a citizen whether a president or a trash collector with the law, gov. agencies and multiple investigations when no clear hint of a crime exists. Also, revealing a persons tax returns is illegal.

      Your hatred and your party’s hatred for Donald Trump has now reached psychotic. You live to hurt him, his family, his business, his employees and his posterity out of pure malice.

      You have now nullified the last vestige of normalcy and honor in all our gov. institutions and no one should trust any gov. agent ever again. They have all become political stooges of the demofascist party and their pervert and criminal members.

      Written rules, written law, the observable truth – nothing is sacred anymore – everything is open to interpretation now. Thus men can categorically be women and vise versa. It’s just getting embarrassing now, but the real problem is the power these turds hold and their increasing desire and willingness to wield it. Just look at the hate dowd demonstrates. He even belittles the black and women commenters.

      95% of the population couldn’t give two shits over Trump’s tax returns. The insane obsession of the elites and average lefty with Trump is something to behold. The only other thing that seems to comes close is Ukraine – again which probably 99% couldn’t give two shits about, but which, according to nazi boy, is America’s number one priority, bar none.

    • david7134 says:

      Did you really make a considerable amount of money in the past, certainly not now. If you make a large sum of money or manipulate a large amount, you are audited, it is considered an internal audit rather than a physical event. Try to grow up.

    • Facts Matter says:

      Actually, the government probably should have the right and ability to look at your tax returns.

      Despite all of this, nowhere in that law does it say these committees can or more importantly should release them to an angry and partisan press that will deceive the average voter into believing Trump or any other political enemy is an evil person.

      The GOP is pointing out what we all know to be true. Enemies lists are back. Nixon was the champion of enemies lists and he was taught everything he knew by LBJ. Sad for America.

    No. Just the Americans that Democrats don’t like.

  4. Hairy says:

    Teach the Dem presidential nominees always release their tax returns voluntarily.
    Why aren’t you posting them?
    Out of the 6 years he paid $750 twice and one year zero.
    And of course he signed the GOP bill to give the elites, the people you despise so much their 2 trillion dollar tax cut
    The IRS has a policy of mandatory audits for sitting Presidents. This policy was not done during Trump:s first 2 years in office.

    • Jl says:

      Johnny boy-all income brackets that pay taxes received tax cuts. When are you going to start with you false statement that all cuts expire except the ones on the “rich”?

    • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

      Hairy have you actually seen those two $750 returns or are you taking as gospel those numbers put out by the same people who have been unmercifully hounding him for 7 years?

      Provide a link to the actual documents or tell us where we an find them since you all have lied so much for so long we can’t believe a word you say.

  5. JimS says:

    Of course the dems won’t remember they set the precedent. The minute it happens to them, they’ll scream bloody murder.

  6. James Lewis says:

    Dear Elwood:

    First, Trump does not do his own taxes. He has a firm which has CPA’s, lawyers and other experts. He is responsible for their work, but even there the rule of thumb is that prosecution only occurs when it can be shown that a conspiracy to commit fraud can be proven.

    The purpose of the Lefies wanting his returns is to pick at it to show that “Trum bad. Trump didn’t pay, etc, etc.” Just politics.

    And yes, the IRS audited his returns. Above a certain figure ALL returns are audited and there again the CPA’s, et al, earn their pay arguing over this and that.

    Do you really think the IRS wouldn’t give their first born to disclose how Trump cheated??? Are you that naive that you don’t know that.

    In the end it is meaningless. Trump bragged about using the system. He wouldn’t agree to give the returns up just to piss off the Lefties and NeverTrumpers.

    Of course one good turn deserves another.

    Stand by for the Left to receive back what they gave.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Conmenter typed: And yes, the IRS audited his returns.

      He is either grossly mistaken or lying.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:


      Trump’s confederates and lawyers delayed his tax returns until the House only had a few days to examine them. But citizen journalists will get to dig into them, LOL.

      Why did Trump hide his returns? What is he afraid of?

  7. CarolAnn says:

    The IRS has a policy of mandatory audits for sitting Presidents. This policy was not done during Trump:s first 2 years in office.

    And who’s fault would that be if it actually happened, which it did not.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      CarolAnn asked: And who’s fault would that be if it actually happened, which it did not.

      CA is correct, the audits did not happen. The fault could lie with the Trump’s handpicked IRS head.

      Connies deny.

      • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

        So when Trump picks his IRS head it’s GOT to be nefarious but when pedo joe HAND PICKS his DoJ and FBI head to harass and persecute American citizens while ignoring Hunters crimes and those of the DNC he’s just fucking perfect. Is that how it works?

        Liar. Always lying. You leftist dogs can’t make even an honest comment.

        Elect a clown, expect a circus.

        Has pedo joe raped his daughter lately or is the FBI keeping that under wraps too?

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Lascivious Goof,

          Elect a clown, expect a circus. RIP: America 2017-2020. The circus left DC kicking and screaming Jan 20 2021!

          Fact(s): The IRS did not audit trump as required.

          Have you seen the photos of pre-teen and teen-age Ivanka being cuddled in bed by her pervert daddy PeDon? Giving daddy a lap dance? Being kissed on the lips by daddy? Fondling Ivanka’s ass?

          When asked about Ivanka, Trump said, “Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father…”

          PeDon trump was sued by a 13 year old girl claiming PeDon raped her in Epstein’s Manhattan mansion. A 14 year old girl witnessed the rape. Billions can buy a lot of silence!!

          PeDon has been accused of sexual assault by dozens of women – but at least women of age.

          When it came to hound-dogging we thought there would be no one worse than Bill Clinton, who abused his office by diddling an intern. PeDon trump said, “Hold my beer!”

            Dingleberry Lips (aka ShitLips)* has never once credibly accused anyone of anything, has she?

            But she is easily triggered, LOL!!

            ShitLips HAS been credibly accused of 1) not being allowed within 1000 ft of a school or daycare and 2) fellating male dogs.

            Child abuse is a serious charge, even if the accuser is a kowardly keyboard kommando (KKK) like ShitLips. We’ve invited Dingleberry to lodge a complaint with the local police, and even offered an all-expense paid trip here to accompany her to the police station! Woman up Dingleberry and report the crime!!

            Are ya yellow? A chicken? All typing, no action? A little pussy? A fluffer? A pusillanimous cocksucker? LOL. She’s a mean-girl typist.


            *This explains her brown lipstick.

  8. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The IRS did NOT audit trump’s returns as required by IRS policy. In fact, the IRS did not start audits on trump until the House requested the tax returns!! This means a multibillionaire like trump can write whatever he wants on the returns!

    He deducted over $70,000 for “hair care” as a business expense. LOL.

    Only one of Donald Trump’s annual federal income tax returns began being audited by the IRS when he served as president, despite the agency having a policy dating to 1977 of conducting mandatory tax examinations of sitting presidents, a House committee said in a new report Tuesday evening.

    And that IRS audit of Trump’s 2016 income tax return was not completed by the time he left office in January 2021, the report by the Ways and Means Committee found.

    And neither of two Trump-related business entities that the IRS told the committee were part of the mandatory examination program was designated for an audit in five of the six years covered by an investigation, according to the report.

    IRS officials (hopefully, soon to be ex-officials) pleaded lack of resources but also claimed they were concerned that trump would punish the IRS for audits.

    Curiously, the IRS WAS able to audit Presidents Obama and Biden, before and after, respectively, the reign of trump. Go figger.

    Rich Republicans (and some rich Dems) have long denigrated the IRS for collecting taxes. Ronald Reagan (President for the wealthy) and subsequent prezzies and Congresses gutted the IRS.

    Millionaires and billionaires and foreign businesses applaud this!! American workers who are forced to pay taxes are not pleased.
