And again should not members of Congress be required to divulge who is paying them off and how much they are getting to influence their votes?
You can find that information online if you'd bother to look and not just sit around and gripe.

And actually, any federal employee above a certain pay is required to file a bunch of information about their finances, which once again if you'd bother to look is disclosed online.

The VP candidates have also historically produced their tax returns. Mike Pence did. Trump is the only one who has broken ranks.
Candidates for Senate and Congress have also historically provided their tax returns.

Every candidate for the office of President must be required to be fully transparent to the American public about their finances.

Why stop at the office of President why not include the VP and every member of Congress? After all with the line of succession shouldn't the VP and members of Congress be held to the same transparency standards?

Trump investigations are not just necessary, they revelatory for the American public to grasp how how and why he should not be able to run for public office again, necessary to correct loopholes in the laws that he exploited and fix those loopholes. For instance, in the next several weeks before the recess Congress should correct the loophole that allowed Trump to run and win without ever disclosing his tax returns. Every other candidate has, but they did so on good faith. No doubt the tax returns will show a different picture than the public accounting Trump gave when running, which is the reason that Ways and Means gave for wanting to see them.

While they are scrutinizing Trumps tax returns let's open the investigation to ALL members of Congress, after all aren't they public servants too and yet everyone of them seem to be millionaires after a few years in office

I personally suspect that the real crimes we will find in his tax returns will have more to do with out-and-out fraud and money laundering than actual tax evasion.

There are also charitable explanations for this mess. He could just be a p**s-poor businessman and actually did lose all of that money.

It seems obvious to me, as an outsider that is not an accountant, that there are large stinky rats in the woodpile that is the Trump finances. Some of those things are very peculiar, and I mean "peculiar" in the sense that there is no rational business reason to do what they are doing, and it is costing them enormous sums of money for no apparent benefit. Again, this might go to Trump and his family being horribly incompetent, but it might also be a useful way to enable fraud or money laundering. So I just don't know.

How very unpatriotc of him. A man we can be proud of, because he is so so smart.
We would have all been in jail by now, if we had done all the transgressions he has. Does anyone think he's above the law?

Gee….who would have guessed this….

“ Donald Trump reported losses on his tax returns every year for a decade, including nearly $700 million in 2009 and $200 million in 2010, his longtime accountant testified Tuesday, confirming long-held suspicions about the former president’s tax practices.”

and


“ The Times reported Trump paid no income tax in 11 of the 18 years whose records it reviewed, and that he paid just $750 in federal income tax in 2017, the year he became president. Citing other Trump tax records, The Times previously reported that in 1995 he claimed $915.7 million in losses, which he could have used to avoid future taxes under the law at the time.”

https://www.seattletimes.com/nation-wor ... ax-losses/

Most people I know pay considerably more than $750 a year in taxes. How’s it feel to subsidize that fat sack of sh*t?

“I avoid taxes…that means I’m really smart”
