Wow…

If there is one thing you can say about the Democrats, it’s that they’re persistent!

They moved, almost seamlessly, from Russian collusion, to obstruction and now to his tax returns…

They’re like a street magician that keeps losing his own shirt at Three Card Monte — and keep trying to find a different way to pull the wool over the eyes of their eagle-eyed customer.

Some people just have the juice…

Some people just have somebody else’s number — and no matter what they try, no matter how many different ways their opponent beats them — like a glutton for punishment, they keep coming back for more.

Trump has the Dems number…

There is NOTHING they’ve been able to do that has beat him.

Sure, they’ve done a great job at slowing him down, but they haven’t been able to stop him.

What are they looking for with his taxes?

The Truth Behind the Tax Return Request

Well, there’re two stories here…

The truth and the cover, so let’s go with the cover story first.

The reason they’re giving is that they want to see if Trump has broken any laws or has any ties to foreign entities, to ensure that our sitting American president isn’t compromised.

Even though the Mueller report cleared Trump of any collusion with Russia, the House Dems truly believe that they’ll catch some kind of tie between him and Putin, through the tax returns in what most people would call “a stretch.”

So they’re pushing that narrative…

And pushing it HARD.

However, that’s not the truth…

That’s not REALLY why they want his taxes.

There truth is — they want to use Trump’s taxes as a political weapon against him in the upcoming presidential election.

They’re hoping that the returns reveal that he’s not as rich as he claims to be or that he’s somehow misrepresented his worth.

Or…

They’re hoping to find some flaw in the reporting — some mistake that would make him look like he was trying to cheat.

Or…

They’re hoping that the tax returns will lead to some kind of shady business deal that would make him out to be a criminal.

That’s it…

They’re not looking for justice, they’re looking for ammo, and to believe otherwise would be naivety.

And They May Not Get Them!

There’s a reason why Steve Mnuchin is refusing to give the tax returns, and it’s not because he’s a stooge for Trump…

It’s because he knows that the move by House Dems is nothing more than a political ploy. There’s no justice to be had…

They just want to use the tax returns to try to damage Trump politically. He even said so in letter he released after not meeting the Dems deadline:

In reliance on the advice of the Department of Justice, I have determined that the committee’s request lacks a legitimate legislative purpose, and pursuant to section 6103, the department is therefore not authorized to disclose the requested returns and return information.

So, what Mnuchin just said, politely was, “You have no reason to ask for this other than personal gain, so you can take your request and shove it.”

But here’s the thing…

Even if they HAD Trump’s taxes, they would still wouldn’t find anything of note.

And…

Even if they did, they would mess that opportunity up like they did in the 2016 election.

So having Trump’s taxes don’t matter!

Why not just get back to the business at hand and run the country instead going on these time, money and resources wasting witch hunts?

The American people have had enough!

 

“Hold on, my friends, to the Constitution and to the Republic for which it stands. Miracles do not cluster, and what has happened once in 6,000 years, may not happen again. Hold on to the Constitution, because if the American Constitution should fail, there will be anarchy throughout the world.” – Daniel Webster
