Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) signaled Thursday that Democrats would pursue getting President Trump's tax returns, arguing that Americans "overwhelmingly" support Congress reviewing the returns.

Asked by reporters during a press conference about whether she finds it important to obtain Trump's taxes, Pelosi said that voters indicated strong support for investigating the president's finances.

"I think overwhelmingly the public wants to see the president's tax returns," Pelosi told reporters. "They want to know the truth. They want to know the facts. And he has nothing to hide."

Proof she is both a liar and a fool.

Americans might overwhelmingly want to see the final season of "Game of Thrones" or nude photos of the Belos girlfriend,but there is something wrong with you if you get all excited over tax returns.

ESPECIALLY when you know they aren't going to find anything but allegations. It ain't like Trump fills them out sitting at his kitchen table. He pays professional accounting firms big bucks to keep this stuff straight.

Nancy, if the IRS has seen them and Trump has not been prosecuted as a tax cheat, I see another political stunt.

They know Trump is probably the most audited guy in the country. They just want the juicy little embarrassing (and legal) tidbits to leak out.

I imagine its much the same for Pelosi, only more so since theres been decades of collectivist claptrap coming from that very wealthy woman.

Leftists in general and Pelosi in particular always pretend or presume to 'speak for the people'. Since they consider themselves to be intellectual gods who are infallible, of course everyone agrees with everything they believe and say.

That's why the Left constantly uses phrases like, 'That is not who WE are as a people.' simply assuming that they are the ones who define what America is supposed to be and what "most Americans" want.

Pelosi is especially guilty of this. Not only does she speak 'for the people', she also speaks for God. She fully believes that if Jesus was on Earth today, not only would he be a Liberal Democrat but he would also work with her as a staffer.

I want to see the financial disclosure statements and tax returns of everyone in Congress who became wealthy while "serving the public" in office.

"Became wealthy" is putting it mildly. Most of Congress are 10s of millionaires. And that is only what they disclose. Who knows how many 10s of millions they have stashed away off the books.

Just in my lifetime 'government service' has changed from being a duty of sorts, into winning the lottery. Federal Government workers, make one third up to double the salary for the same job in the private 'real' economy, and it takes an Act of Congress to get fired. That's why there is so much nepotism. Get a Federal job and you'll never be poor for the rest of your life.

I used to always hear liberals that, whenever elections didn’t go their way, would say  Americans were voting against their own self interest.  Whenever I’ve heard that, I would ask them how they would know what every Americans personal self interest was?

I want something life changing, let's have all the Congress critters be forced to release their tax returns, for every year from the time they were elected. I think maybe America would be interested to know how so many of them became multi multi millionaires on their salaries doing things that would be illegal for all the little people they represent.

I really could care less about the President's tax returns.

Hello war.



I thought he should release his tax returns before his election... since it was accepted protocol.  Now.... after two years and counting of the endless bashing, sniping, and hunting for ANYthing the idiot left can use against him, I have changed my mind about this issue.  Eff em.  Let the damned lefties/Democrats all collectively hold their fetid breaths for that "release" of his tax returns.   It would be a much-needed breath of fresh air for America for these azzholes to do that.   :smokin:

But that's not what is going to happen.  The rats are now going to get Trump's taxes and they are going to reveal it in the worst possible light.

To the best of my knowledge there is nothing in the Constitution that mandates a president turn over their tax return. 

IMHO there is absolutely no benefit to the American public for him to do so.  Didn't Rachael Madow already get his tax return only to find that it revealed absolutely nothing of concern??

No they won't.  They will try but they won't get them.

Well...since she's in the line of succession for the Presidency...she should have to release 10 years of HER tax returns.

The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

Constitution?  What is that gibberish?  Whatever it is, it looks like the rats don't need to get it from Trump.

https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/10/politics/trump-tax-returns-congress-republican-prepare/index.html

Only one Democrat on Capitol Hill -- chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee Richard Neal -- has the power to request the return under the law. And even if he gets them, he doesn't unilaterally have the power to make them public without a vote of his committee. But, Neal has said he plans to ask for them. When exactly he will make that move is still under discussion.

You mean... they are going to illegally obtain his tax returns and then release them to the public?  Isn't that ...

Absolutely not.  The rats will legally obtain Trump's tax return and then release them illegally to the public.
