    I hope Trump get depose in the lawsuit

  3. On old rhetoric, Trump fondly waxes,
    with America, he wants to grind axes.
    He says he is good;
    but, we really just should,
    have a good look, at his taxes.

    His legal position is weak. The law ‘trumps’ his argument. No pun intended.

    • So, Congress can subpoena any records it wants on opposition candidates. Is this a precedent you think could never apply to Democrats?

    Trump and family need there own court for all the lawsuit with peoples suing him and his kids and Melania and Jared.

  6. If he’s so innocent, what’s he got to hide?

      Innocence doesn’t protect you from the justice system.

    • Jaime Garcia | July 24, 2019 at 2:25 AM | Reply

      If he is so innocent, wouldn’t he be rejoicing at the chance to make the House Judiciary look like a bunch of fools?

      @Jaime Garcia that’s not how court works. You seem clueless

      @Thoughtful Thoughts Good morning. Beg your pardon. I forgot Trump’s Cause of Action. I was just supporting President Trump in regard to the contention of certain people seeking to make any income tax returns he may have had filed in different venues made transparent. I just encouraged him to do this. If there is nothing in any possible Federal, NY, IN, NJ tax returns that might suggest the President might be motivated by possible secondary gain to perhaps choose one course of action over another? I believe that President Trump is the most honorable President that I can remember I my lifetime. I urge him to to this to make the Democrats look like fools and witch hunters. I am told litigation is very expensive. I was just suggesting that President Trump seize this opportunity to clear his good name, for all to see.

      @Jaime Garcia providing information to courts when you dont have too is not usually a good idea. They are trained to make you look guilty of something. They dont care about justice.

  7. Only thieves act the way trump acts.

    • Do you think Congress is entitled to tax records of every member of the opposition party?

    • @esj8341 The Oversight Committee has a right to request tax records on anyone being investigated by them otherwise they wouldn’t be able to do their jobs as the Oversight Committee.

  8. Welcome to the Authoritarian States of America , brought to you by the GOP.

      @Fred Garvin Sorry man, the Devil’s gonna win. END TIMES

    • @TrumpZilla Killa Hey if it’s the end times, I know who’s gonna win….

      The mark of Trump ?…

    • Ro Ni, you are f..king fool. The democrat party makes a law directed at one person and a complete moron like you blames the victim.

  9. When a crook has something to hide, this is what he will do. Crook Trump!!!! CROOK!!!

    What does Trump have to hide? He promised he would release his taxes after the election, but now he’s fighting to not release them. All this does is make him look guilty.

  11. His taxes , like his presidency will be underwhelming.

  12. Wanda Treece | July 23, 2019 at 4:47 PM | Reply

    What is he hiding?. All the other Presidents has released theirs. Is the crook hiding something?

  13. What happened to I’ll give my taxes after the audit???? The IRS stated that he could have released his taxes at any time!!!!! The law is on the side of Congress this is BS!!!!

  14. Ivanda Bealone | July 23, 2019 at 4:53 PM | Reply

    watch him blame the 4 women for this because he is white

  15. What’s lurking in those tax returns? Nothing good for President Trump probably.

  16. *YEAH these are the actions of a man that’s got noting to hide.* (sarcasm)

  17. Why I left the right. Family Values and Morals gone, Over the top spending except for his 1%, who he feels are the ones to get him re elected, his Lies are to the point of Beyond Outrageous on a daily Basis, We are the laughing Sock of the World which means he Reflects that Sentiment on all of us that care, his Disdain for Women of any Color is Disgusting and he continues to Insult those brave enough to Speak Out. He is a Disgraceful Leader for my Families Taste, Hugs the Flag for Show . . BONE SPURS While my Family Served with Dignity, and that’s my right to Speak Out. He surely does and it seems to be ok.

    The shameful part of this is that this is not the DOJ or the AG suing here, it’s the President and his own lawyers. We have a President that lives by NDAs and lawyering up like a Mafia Don.

    Sueing to conceal – totally an activity of the innocent

  20. “I’ll release my tax returns after the audit.”

    • Jim Anderson | July 23, 2019 at 5:50 PM | Reply

      Jim Keogh “I’ll release my returns after I’m elected”

      “I hope they do come out, I’ve got great financials”
