We have a winner,


But Mitt Romney was able to release his tax returns. People seemed to understand those fine. Bloomberg, who has more money that trump, also released his tax returns when running for mayor.

I think people will understand them just fine. I mean the NYTs understood just fine the tax information they already got.


Do you think that Romney and Bloomberg had the level of scrutiny that Trump would have? I don't for a minute.

That being said, I think that the president, and all senators and representatives should make their tax returns public too if we're worried about conflict of interest.


Why wouldn't they have looked at Romney's tax return closely? He was running for president and would be something that would help Democrats, of course they heavily scrutinized Romney's.

Either way, trump's returns demand heavy scrutiny, because he has kept ownership of his businesses. Businesses that people give him money specifically to gain access to him. Literally giving him a couple hundred hundred thousand dollars allows you to talk to him. He will then pass on your thoughts to the people that work for him in the government and tell them to look into it or make them fly out to Mar-a-lago to talk to you. Or make you ambassador.

I know that I looked close enough to see that Romney paid a lower percentage on his income that year than I did and I made a bit less than him that year. :-)

This may be among the many reasons Trump doesn't want his tax returns made public...

This deal and article is also now getting more airplay due to the connections between the Mammadov family and Azarpassillo, an Iranian construction company whose chairman was formerly head of Raman, an Iranian construction company that is controlled by Iran's Revolutionary Guard - which Trump just named a terror group.

It still shocks me this is not a bigger deal. I mean the trumps admitted that they knew it was probably helping the Iran's Revolutionary Guard.

I know. I'm sure none of them take advantage of those rules though. "Hey, we're about to pass legislation that is friendly to a company, and earmark some funds that will be going to them. I've been thinking about buying stock in their company for some time, I might as well do it now while I have them on my mind. "
