Trump's tax records
Isn't it interesting how the Democratic Party in Congress and their allies in Democratic Party-controlled states are pushing so hard to get their hands on President Trump's financial records? I can't recall them ever doing the same about their own tax records. When do we get to see Nancy Pelosi's returns, and her husband's? How about Chuck Schumer's? The partisanship is so obvious it's blinding . . . except to the mainstream media, of course, who wouldn't recognize bias if it jumped up and bit them in the ass.
I note there's even an attempt by some states to flout the Constitution, by passing laws preventing a Presidential candidate from appearing on the ballot in their states unless and until his/her tax records have been made available. Sadly for them, the Constitution has already defined the prerequisites to run for President, and provision of tax information is not one of them. No state has the right to pass laws binding on the Federal government, or to supersede Constitutional requirements with its own, different standards; so all such laws are virtually certain to be overturned in court. Nevertheless, the fact some politicians would even try to pass them tells us all we need to know about their respect for the Constitution they've nominally sworn to uphold and defend in their oaths of office.
I think this old saw, that recently reappeared on Gab, isn't a bad response, either. Clickit to biggit.
