“The only years that anybody’s ever seen were a couple of years when he had to turn them over to state authorities when he was trying to get a casino license, and they showed he didn’t pay any federal income tax.”
Trump grinned and bragged:
“That makes me smart.”
But for all his supposed smarts when it comes to business, a former Breitbart writer and spokesperson says that if Democrats do indeed take control of the House come November, Trump’s taxes will be what brings his presidency to a premature end.
In an article he wrote for NBC News, Kurt Bardella notes:
“Oversight committee chairs have the power to issue subpoenas for Trump’s tax returns and the financial records of the Trump business empire. Remember, this is an empire that continues to do business with the federal government, further enriching the Trump family despite grave concerns about conflicts on interest in the executive branch. Not surprisingly, so far, these conflicts have gone mostly unchecked by Republicans in Congress.”
Trump’s tax returns could also tell us exactly who holds sway over the president:
“Think about the implications of a president of the United States who is secretly in debt to foreign governments or even just to private individuals. Imagine what influence those entities or persons could potentially wield over the commander-in-chief.”
And while Trump may like to say that he’s a self-made man, a long look at his taxes would also likely prove that he hasn’t earned a dime during his life. Instead, it’s very likely he inherited everything from his father, wasted millions of it, and has only been able to keep his head above water by cheating on his taxes. Or to put it another way, his entire life has been one massive con job.
