Desperate Democrats Do This To Find Dirt On Trump

Democrats are doing literally anything they can to get a peek at President Trump’s tax returns.

NBC reports that Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA) is having the committee’s attorneys prepare a request for years’ worth of Trump’s personal tax returns. Congressional aides involved in the request told the media outlet that Democrats were prepared to “take all necessary steps” to get their hands on Trump’s taxes.

“Every day the American people and Congress learn more about President Trump’s improprieties, from conflicts of interest to influence peddling, potential tax evasion and violations of the Constitution — all roads leading back to President Trump’s finances,” Ashley Etienne, spokeswoman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), told NBC.

Ways and Means is the tax-writing committee, and the only one with the authority to request the president’s tax returns, though NBC says Neal has reached out to the chairs of other committees to provide their own arguments for why they need the tax returns for their various investigations into Trump.

As soon as Democrats won back control of the House of Representatives in November 2018, they have promised to conduct endless investigations into Trump in order to get him out of office, as they are still wounded from Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016.

Earlier this month, Democrats held a hearing to start building a case for obtaining Trump’s tax returns. Now they’re prepared to act, even if it means litigation.

Trump wasn’t required to release his tax returns while running for president, but he was the first president to refuse to do so in decades. Democrats, hellbent in proving Trump either didn’t really win the 2016 election or is a criminal who should not be president, believe the answer to their bitterness lies in Trump’s taxes.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow tried and failed in 2017 to prove Trump’s tax returns held the key to his demise. The host teased for hours that her program had obtained Trump’s tax returns and that they proved everything everyone who hates Trump wanted them to prove.

In reality, Maddow only had two pages from Trump’s 2005 tax returns, and embarrassingly (for Maddow and Trump haters) proved that the real-estate mogul paid a higher percentage of his taxes than President Barack Obama, Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, and Comcast.

NBC reports that attorneys for the Ways and Means committee “are expected to craft a request as precise as possible, aides said, in order to short circuit an all-but-certain legal challenge by the president that could draw the process out.”

Attorneys are likely to limit the request to Trump’s personal finances, since the Trump Organization’s structure would make it difficult to quickly analyze and use as fodder for attacking the president.

This desperation for a Republican’s tax returns was last seen when former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) claimed, without evidence, that Mitt Romney paid no income taxes and demanded the then-presidential candidate turn them over to prove Reid was lying. Years later, Reid bragged that his lie helped keep Romney out of the White House.

  1. I think America needs to see all of the tax returns of every politician in Congress today. It would be very interesting to see how they amassed their fortunes on a public servant salary. I also feel they should be investigated for their past. I wonder how much collusion and skeletons are in their past also. They are so intent on pursuing our President…I wonder what they are trying so desperately to hide. It is time to expose them for treason?

    1. One, TRUMP is not a sleazy politician like ALL DEMS. 2. They stole an entire 2009 tax return somehow and TRUMP paid 38million. So what else do you need? He pays more taxes than anyone else that we know of. You lousy corrupt DEMS hate a man that is honest don’t you??? If you wanted my taxes I would tell you to go to HELL first. That was before he was president. You know he did nothing wrong but you can;t stand an HONEST man as president as you can;t steal anymore.

    2. Yes , everyone in all offices if the President is req then do so shall all elective officials be required.

  2. NOTE: If you have unverifiable rumors on Trump, call m1-400- burnabletrash and and they will be forwarded to the DNC for publication through the MSM. Thank you.

    1. TRUMP-BEST EVER, PATRIOT, AMERICA FIRST, FAMILY MAN, GOD LOVING, TOUGH, EXCELLENT NEGOTIATOR, BUSINESSMAN, CHRISTIAN–GEE, WE COULD CONTINUE THIS FOREVER!

      1. Vicki, You are 100 % right. We are blessed to have this man. I don’t know why my comment to
        Larry is under yours. GOD bless you Vicky.

    2. For saying that it makes you a liar and a cheat, as any one that is honest has no problems with an honest president who is saving America.

    3. Totally false. Trump is, BY FAR, the greatest president America has had and endured mores outrageous, gutless cowards.
      Each of us owing taxes MUST file with the IRS. Our returns are PRIVATE between us and the IRS. The IRS can audit anyone they choose. Any attempt to force the IRS to release Trump’s tax returns would turn the IRS into a police agency and forever destroy the respect the public has for them. Be careful for what you wish for! Obama weaponized EVERY governmental agency of government. Why didn’t he sic the IRS on Trump? He knew Trump’s Tax returns had already been well scrutinized.

  3. Then when he does every politician needs to do this also especially president, vice president, a d speaker of the house since she thinks she has the same power as the president, her own words.

  4. Well I must say the democrats are going to new lengths going after President Trump’s tax returns . I look forward to the same for all members of congress , especially all the loud mouth democrats tax returns !!!

  5. “Every day the American people and Congress learn more about President Trump’s improprieties, from conflicts of interest to influence peddling, potential tax evasion and violations of the Constitution — all roads leading back to President Trump’s finances,” Ashley Etienne, spokeswoman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), told NBC.

    This information is provided by the Spokeswoman for Nancy Pelosi to one of the worst MSM, NBC. I guess that means it must be true! This is still just so much BS propaganda.

    1. Are democrats dumb? Anybody remember “executive privilege”? I would suggest the democrats be very careful. How many democrats are into pedophile and trafficking? What about democrats on the cartels? How many skeletons will come out. Trump will expose at a press conference? After 2 1/2 years they haven’t figured how deadly he is???? Who cleaned out the FBI 7th floor? Who has North Korea talking and no testing?

  6. They have been doing this since the day he was elected, they are desperate.. Mueller found nothing, so now they are hung to dig through his dirty underwear.. They better remember that one day a dem will be president again, watch out, I as well as many conservatives are unforgiving.. Investigate, investigate as needed..

  7. I watched a YouTube presentation a few days ago of Speaker Nancy Pelosi speaking to her underlings in the House of Representatives about “How to create and promote [FAKE NEWS ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP]. She said that first they have to claim something bad about him that could come from anyone (unverifiable source), then send it to one or several main-stream-mediums that kowtow to the liberal-left-radicals. Then, when they publish it without any investigation, they should go all out to share it with their friends in the other leftist-radical mediums. WHAT ARROGANCE!!!!

    1. Please understand that this President Trump will not be bullied nor will his supporters. A march on Washington and we the people can arrest everyone of them. This is our country and he is our President.

  8. Maybe these petty people should worry more about this country and us legal American citizens, instead of ways to destroy the sitting president. They are setting a horrible example for todays youth….if you cant win, destroy the person who does…NO MATTER WHAT LEVEL THEY HAVE TO STOOP!!! THEY are behaving more like children than they have accused him of.
    of course another reason they are going to out of their minds, and to such extremes is that when he builds our wall, it will prevent as many illegals from making it over here for 2020 election!!!! This is all about being a sore loser, and their illegal voters!!!!!
    It is sick how they are behaving . They dont give a SHIT about us legal american citizens…..

  9. I feel sorry for the DemocRATS.😟 They have so much hate in their hearts, they must be miserable. I pray God will forgive them. Congress should be working at reducing the federal debt we incurred under the eight years of Obama.

  10. Chairman Schiff is such a mad dog to get Trump, I have heard that he paid $400,000 out of the $17,000,000 slush fund. I am wondering if we could get the Attorney General Barr to get that list of names Democrats and Republicans and find out how they will pay the Americasn taxpayers back. There are also 238 millionaires in Congress I would like to see their tax returns from the day they came into office till now. It is my understanding that Mr. Shumer turned in $6.5 million in expenses that were false serval years ago and paid $138,000 in a fine.
    Polosi is worth 146 million. In 32 years her accomplishments are that she was first to recognize the LGBT community, got money for Aids research, raised the minimum wage to $7.25 an hour after blocking that wage for the islands in the S. Pacific where her husband canning plants for fish and pineapple were located. Helped bail out the banks, one belonging to Maxine Waters husband. Helped get Obama Care passed, “We will have to pass it so that we can see what’s in it.” Set up the 9/11 commission. That is not much for 32 years when u consider that by October 18, 2018 President Trump had accomplished 289 chores for the good of the country.

  11. So far, I see no proven truth of any crime Committed by President Trump that legally requires anyone to call for any additional investigations to begin, All I DO see, is a bunch of Democrats and RINO’s who have been very disappointed and made very mad about Trump’s’ victory over all their’ chosen candidates for the POTUS in 2016/17 election’s candidate’s . Not to mention the fact he also ran against 17 from the Republican’s. In fact, the Special Counsel Investigation, headed by Robert Mueller, was falsely started because of Trumps’ firing of James Comey, which was backed by DOJ, FBI CIA and I believe also the US Congress, SO there was no legal cause to call for THAT either. In MY view, the corruption inside the Justice Dept. also condemns even THAT investigation. Enough is enough, it is time for AG Barr to put a stop to this ridiculous harassment by the Democrat Party. After ALL of THIS, Donald J. Trump has been a very successful PRESIDENT osf our great country.

  12. I DO NOT LIKE TRUMP AT ALL. HE IS LIAR AND BLAMES EVERYONE FOR HIS MISTAKES. I HAVE SEEN THEM COME AND GO IN MY 77+ YEAR LIFE AND HE IS THE WORST. I WAS A REPUBLICAN ALL MY LIFE UNTIL THEY VOTED THIS BOZO IN. WATCH A FILM ON FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT AND SEE WHAT HE DID FOR OUR COUNTRY. TRUMP’S MOTTO IS: MAKE AMERICA WHITE AGAIN. I AM WHITE AND ASHAMED. WE ARE A NATION WITH ALL NATIONALITIES. TRUMP THINKS HE IS GOD. HE IS NOT. BE AFRAID, BE VERY AFRAID FOR THIS “HOT HEAD” WILL BRING US TO WW 3.

  13. This is nothing but pure harassment to drive Trump out of office by the communist run media and the communist a.k.a. Democrat party. Trump should use his power as the military commander in chief to go in there with the military and rest all these anti-American flags up as they colluded from the beginning before he ever gotten power to get rid of and there’s your known facts. I do not know why he will not drop all that evidence in the DOJ and the FBI of all their concealed evidence of Strozk,Page, Rosenstein and a whole host of others and all the top tears of all the agencies. They are duly harassing a sitting president from doing his job and a great one at that which they can’t stand because they’re paid to take America down the drain. This is our country people he is our president and we need to back him up and we need to pray for him in the country where in big trouble did you get it!

  14. If they want President Trump’s tax returns so badly, issue a request (more a demand) that all members of Congress, their Chief of Staff and highly placed members of their office also release their tax returns for the same period as requested of President Trump. Any bets as to how far this request would go? I would not bet for it and we will NEVER see any action such as this out of any Committee in Congress as they have too many secrets to hide!

  15. I’d like to know how they all got to be millionaires after they got into congress. They should all produce their tax returns along with the President. This is one reason they should have TERM LIMITS the longer their in there the more corrupt they get. Also we are their employers, we should be calling the shots and they push us around like we are nobody. they should answering to us. First tax returns to be released is pelosi and schumers. GOD BLESS AMERICA
