Report on Trump's $750 Income Tax Payments Reverberates on Eve of Debate

Republican lawmakers reacted with nearly complete silence on Monday to a New York Times investigation that revealed President Trump paid just $750 in federal income taxes in 2016 and 2017 and that he oversees a network of businesses that are riddled with debt and losing hundreds of millions of dollars.

Spokesmen for Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Senator John Thune of South Dakota, the top two Republicans in the Senate, declined to comment on the article Monday.

A Republican involved in writing tax law, Senator Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said Monday afternoon that he had read the Times article, but declined to comment on how little Mr. Trump paid in taxes.

The thought that comes to my mind is how come its taking the I.R.S. so long to get the audits done, he told reporters. Asked about the $750 tax payments, Mr. Grassley said: I want to wait until the I.R.S. gets done so I know how much he owes.

1. Total BS answer

My view it most of the GOP in the house and senate, are up to their necks in trump corruption, and they know they go down if he goes down.

Any of them that are smart should start talking and cut a deal to get less time in jail!

2. It's taking the IRS so long because they need an agent who can read Russian.

3. The IRS isn't doing an audit

They are doing an investigation.
