Also hanging over him is a decade-long audit battle with the Internal Revenue Service over the legitimacy of a $72.9 million tax refund that he claimed, and received

new plan. file taxes with a refund large enough to hire armies of lawyers to fight for my refund in court

jeebus.

[edit: oh yeah. and spend it all quick so they can’t take it back]

I knew this timeline was fucked up, but I didn’t know just how badly until it hit me that we were due a Don in jail for tax fraud and a Wesley Snipes presidency!

I kid. I’ve known for quite some time just how fucked up the timeline is.

Indeed, his financial condition when he announced his run for president in 2015 lends some credence to the notion that his long-shot campaign was at least in part a gambit to reanimate the marketability of his name.

It was a grift from day one. We always knew this.

I assume that this sort of thing is why so many of his people are doing various things without even a cursory background check.

You fail those hard and fast for having this much obvious leverage over you just hanging out there.

In other words Trump paid $129,250 more in hush money to a single porn star in 2016 than he paid in Federal taxes that same year.

And Stormy only had to let him screw her for a few minutes, tops. He’s been screwing the rest of us for almost four years now.

He’s going to have some problems.
“His properties have become bazaars for collecting money directly from lobbyists, foreign officials and others seeking face time, access or favor; the records for the first time put precise dollar figures on those transactions.”

This is of course his answer, but if those taxes are incorrect and his taxes are wonderful, the best tax returns ever, you’ve never seen such tax returns, why not just release them, so we may bask in their sunshine?

@xeni Please proofread the first sentence. It seems to lack one or two crucial words.

Well then, the Dems have no choice but to impeach him again for massive tax fraud. No one should be president who engages in massive tax fraud.

Impeach!
