Trump’s Still Under Audit?
Recently, there was a protest held to try and force President Donald Trump to release his tax returns. Many believe that there are some damning details in his tax returns and want to see them.
According to the White House, the president is apparently still under audit. As such, the White House has refused to disclose Trump’s tax returns because they believe that it is against the law.
His tax files being under audit was the excuse that he gave during the primaries for being the first ever candidate to refuse to release their tax returns. He argued that because he was being audited that he by law could not disclose his tax returns. Many, including the IRS director himself, explained that there was nothing that stopped Trump from releasing his tax returns.
With Trump’s refusal to disclose his tax records he has become the first president to disclose his taxes since Richard Nixon. No one can’t get much shadier than Nixon so that might say something about Trump’s tax returns. Who really knows though?
Many believe that Trump’s tax returns contain some very secret bad information about Trump himself. They believe that maybe it contains that he did a lot of business with Russians businesses or that he was not as rich as he claimed.
Rachel Maddow even famously claimed that she had gotten Trump’s tax returns earlier this year. She ended up only having about five pages of his tax returns, and her hyped up release caused much controversy. It was such a shame to see how hyped Maddow got for just those five pages.
Before she even went on air the White House responded with some of the basic tax information she ended up talking about on air. It almost seems like Trump is ready to combat controversy over the information contained in his tax returns.
