It is a fixation of leftists everywhere. They want to see President Donald Trump’s tax returns. Not just for the last couple of years, either. The lunatics want to see a number of years worth of the documents. Why is anyone’s guess, but the charges levied against the president without any proof of wrongdoing are fraud, lying, being a bad businessman and more.
And they think that seeing tax returns that have been not only prepared by tax attorneys and accountants, but audited on an annual basis is going to prove the hypothesis.
Over the weekend, Louisiana’s Senator John Kennedy skewered the effort.
The Louisiana Republican known for speaking his mind didn’t pull any punches during a recent interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.
Kennedy took aim at Massachusetts Rep. Richard Neal, the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee who wants Trump’s taxes so badly that he wrote a request to the Internal Revenue Service.
“It must really suck to be that dumb,” Kennedy said during the April 5 Tapper interview, noting that Americans won’t fall for such nonsense. “Words can’t express how much I don’t care. It’s not Mr. Neal’s call.”
In addition to Senator Kennedy’s opinion on the matter, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders weighed in with Fox News’s Chris Wallace.
In a Sunday interview with Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said that members of Congress probably wouldn’t know what to make of the president’s tax returns even if they were served up for public consumption.
“My guess is that most of them don’t do their own taxes,” she said.
Actually, many Americans don’t do their own taxes. Tax preparation is a big business here.
Now that the special prosecutor investigation headed up by Robert Mueller has concluded with no crimes to be found to charge the president, the Democrats are desperate to find anything possible to hang around his neck like a millstone. Unfortunately, Trump’s tax returns are not going to deliver on that score.
