So you're saying you have seen no behaviour or comments from Trump or his family that could indicate he may be conflicted,
Just curious about everyone's position on Trump's tax returns.
I saw an article stating that the chairman of the Ways and Means committee has the power to obtain his tax returns. According to an article I read, Trump stated in 2014 that he would release them but hasn't, and that he is the first president in 40 years not to release them. The Dems already have a key word that you'll start hearing "conflicted" as in "the tax returns will show that this president is conflicted"
I don't like the precedent of obtaining them *forcefully*, but he should release them. We know he wont', and that it was just another of his lies - but I'm still not wild about setting dangerous precedents just to make someone look bad
and therefore you believe this is being done just to somehow make him look bad? Could you expand on those thoughts please?
Yeah. That's exactly what I said - you're brilliant. The Dem's motives are as pure as the snow that fell in Miami this year. They aren't trying to score political points, just trying to get to the truth because that's all that they care about.
If his tax returns were needed for an investigation, I'm sure they could be subpoenaed by investigating authorities. But this isn't the case in this instance. This is about politics. But maybe you believe that your tribe is above that and only cares about doing what's right for America, politics be damned.
If your honest opinion is that Trump and his family have shown no behaviour that could raise concerns of conflicts of interest in his role as president representing America, then I can understand your position (I just asked you to explain that position, but if you have nothing to say on that, so be it). My opinion differs, as I outlined above. I believe Congress is rightly doing its oversight role to ensure our president is acting in the best interests of America, not Donald Trump.
