There is such a thing as morally wrong though.....I mean this man is mega rich he isn't avoiding tax to provide a better life for himself and his family or to put food on the table I could forgive him if that was the case.

There is no such thing as morality where money is concerned, especially big money. It's a dog eat dog world.

Re: Trump 'paid $750 in federal income taxes in 2016' - New York Times

I'm still reading through the article - how Trump has avoided criminal charges amazes me .....

However, his civil court list is massive:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_...f_Donald_Trump
An analysis by USA Today published in June 2016 found that over the previous three decades, Donald Trump and his businesses have been involved in 3,500 legal cases in U.S. federal courts and state court, an unprecedented number for a U.S. presidential candidate. Of the 3,500 suits, Trump or one of his companies were plaintiffs in 1,900; defendants in 1,450; and bankruptcy, third party, or other in 150. Trump was named in at least 169 suits in federal court. Over 150 other cases were in the Seventeenth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida (covering Broward County, Florida) since 1983. In about 500 cases, judges dismissed plaintiffs' claims against Trump. In hundreds more, cases ended with the available public record unclear about the resolution. Where there was a clear resolution, Trump won 451 times, and lost 38.

Among the most well-known Trump legal cases was the Trump University litigation. Three legal actions were brought alleging fraud, one by the New York State attorney general and the others by class action plaintiffs. In November 2016, Trump agreed to pay $25 million to settle the litigation.


I've just been notified by NYT that there is a Part 2 to the article .....

So, if Trump has nothing to hide and everything to shout about, why won't he reveal his "official" returns .....

Trump tax returns: ‘No question’ president and daughter Ivanka could face prison, says Watergate prosecutor

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...n-b690355.html

A former federal prosecutor who worked on the Watergate scandal has said Donald and Ivanka Trump could be imprisoned for “tax fraud” after leaving the White House.

Asked during an appearance on CNN whether the US president could face charges for years of alleged tax evasion following the publication of his tax records this week, Nick Akerman said there was “no question about it”.

“Tax evasion is a five-year felony,” Mr Akerman told CNN. “It’s a pretty serious crime, and the more money that’s stolen, the longer you go to jail for.

“It looks like Trump has done a whole series of activities that could qualify as tax fraud, not tax avoidance,” the prosecutor added.

“Tax avoidance is simply getting-taking the tax code and getting the most deductions you can get under the code that’s perfectly legal. Tax fraud however is lying about what your income was, what your deductions are, and there are items that stand out in that report that appear to go beyond tax avoidance.”

Why should he? It's at the very least very highly sensitive commercial information.

After all for YEARS Barack Hussein never released his long form birth certificate and what was eventually released is far from credible. If genuine it would have been produced from the very beginning.

Purely speculative comments based on nothing other than Trump hatred from a highly biased source.
