Democrats have been trying to get a hold of Donald Trump’s tax returns from the first day he entered office.
When Trump was in office, Democrats were blocked, but that is all changing now.
Biden’s DOJ has now ruled that the IRS must turn over Trump’s tax returns to congressional committees requesting them.
Dems Get Their Way
During Trump’s presidency, it was ruled that Democrats did not have a valid reason to obtain Trump’s tax returns.
It was more for exploratory purposes rather than any actual criminal activity.
It has been assumed by conservatives that the real reason Dems want the returns is to hammer Trump on his tax rate, something he has never really hidden.
Like every other American, Trump takes advantage of every tax break and loophole available.
My guess here is that Dems would also like to get a look at Trump’s charitable donations.
However, the DOJ has done a complete reversal, stating that there are now “sufficient reasons for requesting the former President’s tax information.
So, the DOJ has ordered that “Treasury must furnish the information to the Committee.”
The order was signed by Dawn Johnsen, installed by the Biden administration as the acting head of the legal counsel office.
Ironically, House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) has called Trump’s tax returns a national security issue.
She stated, “Access to former President Trump’s tax returns is a matter of national security.
“The American people deserve to know the facts of his troubling conflicts of interest and undermining of our security and democracy as president.”
Considering the Biden family ties to the Chinese, I think Pelosi may have this one screwed up a bit.
I also cannot help but marvel at the rather convenient timing of the order, with Biden now reeling in polls and mainstream media headlines.
Call me a conspiracy theorist if you want, but this really looks like a concentrated effort to find something that can be used to flip the negative news cycle Democrats are trying to battle through right now.
I also can’t wait to see how long it takes for the returns to be “leaked” to the media “accidentally.”
