  1. What’s he so desperate to keep hidden?

    • Not desperate at all Lisa. Enough is enough. The filthy Dems are digging for something/anything and have been for 3 yrs. Enough is enough.

    • @T Boned And look what they’ve unearthed. Your president is corrupt. He dug his own hole. Time to bury him already.

      Hasn’t paid taxes in years. That alone got al Capone jailed

    • @Lisa Kuzma They have unearthed nothing Lisa. They are lying. Time to expose the filthy Dems from Obama and Hillary downwards. You wouldn’t even begin to believe the crimes against the US let alone humanity.

    Wtf does he have to hide!? Innocent people have nothing to hide!
    Once again a photo opportunity turns into a press conference!

    • @V Baxter >>>Presidents have the power to enact tax laws<< The president does not have the power to MAKE laws. You democrat kooks are ill-informed brainwashed kooks.

    • Hey Oranjmuse idiot, he doesn’t have to show you and your libturd friends ANYTHING.

    • @Major Minor 1. I encourage you to look up the definition of enact. 2. He signed into law lifelong tax breaks gor the super rich while saddling future generations with record debt. As a tax payer and a voter, I want to understand how he benefits. 3. People who don’t have anything to hide don’t hide anything. 4. The kooks are the willfully ignorant and those who condemn others who are seeking transparency.

    • @BlueBallz do you hear how close you are to communism. The IRS audits taxes returns, not you. Why do you not trust the IRS?

    • Innocent people don’t get investigated 24/7 for three years. Enough is enough from the dirty Dems.

  3. Hoax, Witch Hunt, I will contest for court to reveal my financial documents, I have nothing to hide. I do not want witnesses to testify, I will not appear in the hearing. No one can appear in the hearing. They shall not provide my financial records, and I will appeal it. I like a long process. Yeah, you want this to drag on 100 years. Con man & a liar forever.

      @may wilson Hillary’s not running. Vote him ou t!!!

    • @D MAN The economy is doing good for the ones that were wealth and rich already. You asked Why would he help the Democrats I ask why won’t he let the people that are witnesses testify on his behalf? If Trump was innocent he would love to have a I told you so moment. You should do some research instead of repeating garbage talking points.

    • @soon to be Cruzer55 You did not hear here announcement three or four days ago? She said never say never, and so many people want her to run. She just hasn’t decided.

    • @soon to be Cruzer55 Hillary will be the nominee… official announcement after Christmas.

    • Idiot. The filthy Dems are digging for something/anything at this point, and if that isn’t obvious then your only information source must be CNN.

  4. Didn’t Trump say, “he is the most transparent president in history”?

  5. Could this be the era when the Supreme Court is in play, politically?

    • @Stephanie Williams After the week of historic events, one is overwhelmed with history flying by faster than one has expiercenced in a lifetime.

    • MegaN00dle exactly. moscow mitch prevented the confirmation of judges under President Obama! Now we have Putin’s puppet, Trumpanzee, the pos occupant of the white house, and now these filthy corrupt criminal GOP members are confirming pro trumpturd idiots to the bench… CORRUPTION ! WTF?

    • @Grace Munich The depth of their utter amorality and fealty to Trump can be summarized in two words: Steven Menashi.

    • Nope. This is the era where we find out all of the corruption and treason of the Dems exposed by the President.

  6. I’m shocked his tax records haven’t been leaked already

  7. For someone who is “eventually” going to release his taxes(2016) he sure is trying hard to keep them hidden.

  8. SEC stocks exchange commission should open investigation Trump Tweets and stocks market manipulation.

  9. I guess we will see if the Justices represent the Law or Trump.

    • Judith Aldridge – You think you know better than the Supreme Court? Even if they do decide with Trump, I guarantee the majority opinion will be thorough, comprehensive and based on existing case law precedent and legal principal. Not political opinion.

    • John MacLeod – Yes. The Federal Courts are independent from both the mob and the President. They are a co-equal branch of government with the power of judicial review.

      @T Boned The Constitution says it is perfectly constitutional.

    • Judith Aldridge | December 13, 2019 at 10:28 PM | Reply

      @Bovine One Maduro won the election but Trump prefered a more maliable person in the job.

  10. Why is he so adamant about blocking his finances from being shown

    • Why give these criminals more to lie about?

    • Brittany Moore | December 13, 2019 at 9:32 PM | Reply

      happy jack once you become PRESIDENT. You are no longer a private citizen. You are a servant to the country. Every presidential candidate but this MF has made their taxes PUBLIC.

      HE DOESN’T WANT US TO KNOW HE’S BROKE

    • Enough is enough. That’s why. The lying cheating Democrats have been trying this BS for three years. At some point you get fed up of their BS.

    • JESUS. CHRIST. PEOPLE…..all. These. Rich. FUCKS….that. ONE. Percent…..keep. Their. Finances. Hidden

    • @happy jack he SAID he would release his tax records, remember? As soon as the ‘audit’ was done. Having the tax records is proof he is not benefiting financially by being president – which is against the law.

  11. When it comes to Trump and the GOP,  all roads lead to Russia.
    Lev Parnas, the indicted associate of Rudy, and Devin Nunes, received a $1 million payment from Russia and tried to hide it from investigators, prosecutors have now stated. Trump denies knowing Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, even though they have attended events at his properties, and they have posed in multiple photos with Trump.

    Parnas, who was charged with illegally funneling foreign cash to Republican politicians, including a pro-Trump super PAC, received $1 million from a mysterious account in Russia in September, which he conveniently forgot disclose to the government.

    Parnas is the founder of “Fraud Guarantee” 😂  a consulting firm with no “identifiable customers” that paid Rudy $500,000. The mysterious payment from Russia should not be a surprise considering that all roads lead to Putin and Russia when it comes to Trump.

    Prosecutors say Parnas and Igor Fruman donated larger sums of money to Republicans in an effort to enlist them in their effort to oust then-Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, who testified that she was recalled after a smear campaign by Rudy. Along with their work with Rudy, Parnas and Fruman are accused of meeting at Trump’s Washington hotel to discuss a Ukraine gas deal linked to Yovanovitch’s removal.

    In October, Republican Kevin McCarthy said he plans to donate the $111,000 that was given to the House Republicans’ main fundraising committee by Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas. 😲

    McCarthy, a sycophantic defender of Trump, said the money from Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, would be given to charity.  A handful of Republican campaign committees received nearly $500,000 from Parnas and Fruman.

    Prosecutors say that they “conspired to circumvent the federal laws against foreign influence by engaging in a scheme to funnel foreign money to candidates for federal and state office so that the defendants could buy potential influence with candidates, campaigns and the candidates’ governments.”

    Fruman and Parnas also created Global Energy Producers, an LLC to hide their funding sources and conceal their names on large contributions, the indictment says.

    FL. Gov. Ron DeSantis said he plans to return nearly $50,000 he received, according to a report by The Miami Herald. Parnas attended fundraisers for DeSantis in 2018. 😲
    Parnas was throwing Russian money at Republicans like beads at Mardi Gras to any republican that was willing to expose themselves to him.

    I think it’s safe say that not only do the Russians own Trump, they also own the GOP as well. It’s going to be interesting to find out just how much Russia paid Trump and republicans to sellout and betray America. And make no mistake, we will find out.

  12. I broke the law now I’m suing you from getting the evidence. Anyone else think this is ridiculous.

    • Major Minor I think it’s ridiculous that one could even run for President without showing all financial records especially taxes !!!!

    • @Sun Flower well how Russian of you.

    • Major Minor why is that ?

    • christopher weise | December 13, 2019 at 8:44 PM | Reply

      Major Minor – As we’ve seen with Trump. His foreign policy strategy is shaped by his outstanding loan balances. Whoever he owes billions to (Duetsche Bank = Putin) gets preferential treatment. Why do you think he’s so pro Russia? Cause he doesn’t want Vlad to call his loans due. OR, in the case of Saudi Arabia (Mohammed bin Slice And Dice) you get to murder American journalists because you’ve spent millions with the president’s personal company. It’s all about conflict of interest, and being compromised by foreign governments. THAT is why. The fact that the self proclaimed “most transparent president in history” goes to such lengths to hide all of his financial information tells you all you need to know about where is loyalty is…and it ain’t with the U.S.A.

    • How about I didn’t break the law and they are lying and so is the fake news.

  13. What a POS McConnell is. He was spawned by the Devil himself.

  14. A raw and jaw-dropping example of what a pathological liar sounds like.

    Trump’s 2015 interview with host Michael Savage, Trump was asked again point-blank whether he’d ever met Putin.
    “Yes,” Trump said. “One time, yes. Long time ago.”
    “Got along with him great, by the way,” Trump added.
    “I got to know so many of the Russian leaders, the top top people in Russia,” he said.

    At a July, 2016 press conference, at the height of the general election campaign, Trump denied ever having met the Russian leader.
    “I never met Putin, I don’t know who Putin is,” he told reporters in Florida. “He said one nice thing about me. He said I’m a genius. I said, ‘Thank you very much’ to the newspaper, and that was the end of it. I never met Putin. Never spoken to him. I don’t know anything about him other than he will respect me.”

    David Letterman asked Trump in a 2013 interview if had ever met Putin.
    Trump: “Well I’ve done a lot of business with the Russians,” Trump said. “He’s a tough guy. I met him once,” said Trump.

    Feb. 17, 2016: At a rally, Trump insists he has no relationship with Putin. “I have no relationship with him other than he called me a genius,” Trump says. “He said, ‘Donald Trump is a genius, and he is going to be the leader of the party, and he’s going to be the leader of the world or something.’”

    Trump’s July 2016 interview with George  Stephanopoulos            

    STEPHANOPOULOS: “Yet you said for three years, ’13, ’14 and ’15, that you did have a relationship with Putin.”
    TRUMP: “No, look, what — what do you call a relationship? I mean he treats me…”
    STEPHANOPOULOS: “I’m asking you.”
    TRUMP: “with great respect. I have no relationship with Putin. I don’t think I’ve ever met him. I never met him. I don’t think I’ve ever met him.”
    STEPHANOPOULOS: “You would know if you did.”
    TRUMP: “I think so.”
    STEPHANOPOULOS: “I mean if he…”
    TRUMP: “Yes, I think so. So I’ve — I don’t think I’ve ever met him. I mean if he’s in the same room or something. But I don’t think so.”

    If anyone still had any doubt as to whether or not you can believe anything that Trump says, I hope this clears everything up.

    “The president’s legal team are welcoming this move by the Supreme Court…”
    And it will be no time before the new Democrat president will be welcoming it too.

  16. I know he’s guilty. Anybody with green hair can not be trusted.

    Not getting my hopes up for this SCOTUS to do the right thing. He’s already thoroughly corrupted the Judiciary

    • @Michael Schwartz hows the russia story coming? must suck having the IQ of a paperclip

    • Michael Schwartz | December 13, 2019 at 10:19 PM | Reply

      @Bovine One I’m losing my faith in the safeguards. So many have “courageously” resigned instead of staying to battle corruption. I also agree with Michael Coen that there’s no way he’s leaving quietly, elections or no. (Even confessed liars can be right about things.) They’ll have to drag him out, and I don’t see the current AG or Senate majority leader letting that happen.

    • Keep buying into the fake news narrative.

    • Michael Schwartz – The Secret Service would drag him out if he refused to leave. Keep the faith my friend! At best Trump be gone by February. At worst he’ll be gone in 2024.
      And we always have the last resort option. State Govenors and their National Guards and an armed population. What safeguards do you feel have been eroded?

    • Michael Schwartz | December 13, 2019 at 10:35 PM | Reply

      @T Boned No, buying into a fake news narrative is a “you people” thing. Always has been. I grew up surrounded by republicans. You guys are the first ones to turn your heads and pretend you didn’t hear facts you don’t like. Always need a bad guy to rally against, always reduce everything to the simplest, most black and white terms. We good! They bad!

      I read and watch multiple sources (preferably ones with ethics review and peer oversight, so not the ones you do) and try to deduce where the truth lies between them. I’ve been a journalist. Your ignorance on the profession has allowed one of our most valuable institutions to become just another minority “conservatives” are demonizing for personal gain. Coordinating multiple outlets to tell the same “narrative” would be like herding cats in a tornado while high on crack.

      But tell me, did you guys even know what the word “narrative” meant before foxbart started repeating that talking point ad nauseum? Asking for a friend

    As it’s been said: ‘Never in history has anyone tried so hard NOT to be proven innocent.’

    • rich5817 , Obama wouldn’t give his brother a job so he makes these false claims. Do your research?

    • @Hope Ful Ohhh I see , if enough stink is raised, a president should release their tax return to “put the nonsense to rest”. Your ill-formed logic is laughable and demonstrates you too are a democrat useful idiot.

    • Sorry your must be form the lower develop population of humans that lack intelligence let me tell how it works in the court of the law.
      Your innocent till proven guilty. You don’t have to prove your innocent de-da-de.

    • This crap has been going 24/7 for three years. Enough is enough. The Democrats are lying, cheating, desperate aholes who are about to be busted.

  19. YA’H SEE! YA’H SEE! This is what happens when deplorable orange men get elected president!

  20. Attn CNN Staff: Chris Cuomo is to be addressed as Mr. Cuomo, NOT “Fredo”.
