According to a brand new report written up by the Daily Wire’s Daniel Chaitin, the House select committee, which clearly has an anti-Trump agenda, has announced they will be releasing former President Donald Trump’s tax returns to the public by the end of the week. This little stunt by the radicals within the Democratic Party isn’t like to have the impact the left is hoping for.
A spokesperson representing the Democrat-led House Ways and Means Committee spoke with several news outlets where it was revealed the disclosure of the tax documents will take place on Friday, which is less than a week before the GOP is set to take control over the lower chamber of Congress. The materials for Trump and his businesses, which are going to cover the years of 2015 to 2020 will then be put into the Congressional Record as part of what NBC News says is a pro forma session.
“The panel voted along party lines last week to release Trump’s tax returns following a years-long legal battle capped by the Supreme Court rejecting the former president’s plea to block the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) from giving the tax records to the committee. Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA) said the release would happen after a few days, allowing staff to make redactions of sensitive information,” the Daily Wire reported.
“A longtime businessman before he jumped into politics, Trump refused a modern standard of making tax information public while a candidate for president and while in office, insisting over the years it was because he was being audited, along with numerous other explanations,” it continued.
“With Trump engaged in a third bid for the White House, his campaign condemned the Democrats over the vote to release his tax returns. ‘This unprecedented leak by lame-duck Democrats is proof they are playing a political game they are losing,’ said Trump’s campaign, according to The Washington Post. ‘If this injustice can happen to President Trump, it can happen to all Americans without cause.'”
While Democrats have attempted to build a case that it is important, no, crucual, that they have access to Trump’s tax returns in order to engage in proper oversight, Rep. Kevin Brady, who is a Republican from Texas, who is the top dog from the GOP serving on the Ways and Means Committee has repeated concerns that were brought up by former President Trump’s team, stating that disclosure will “set a terrible precedent that unleashes a dangerous new political weapon that reaches far beyond the former president and overturns decades of privacy protections for average Americans that have existed since the Watergate reforms.”
“The House Ways and Means Committee has already summarized its findings, issuing a report last week that said the IRS failed to adhere to its own policy and audit Trump during his first two years in office and only started one on Trump’s 2015 income tax return the same day in 2019 the panel requested access. ‘The former President’s individual income tax returns filed in 2018, 2019, and 2020 were not selected for examination until after he left office and only the 2016 tax return was subject to a mandatory examination,’ the document said. A supplemental report prepared by Joint Committee on Taxation was also released last week, showing how much Trump paid or did not pay in taxes each year, per CNBC. That review found Trump paid no federal income taxes during his final year as president,” the Daily Wire’s report continued.
At the end of the day, this whole move to obtain Trump’s tax records is an attempt to further assassinate his character in the public eye and turn even more people against the former president. There is a serious, in-depth strategy being deployed by the left to ruin and utterly destroy the billionaire’s life and keep him from winning a second term in the White House. Hopefully when Republicans take over the House next month, things will begin to change.
