What if a Presidential candidate shows up in the next round of Panama Papers?

We have been led to believe there's another batch on the way.

1. Hill will not drop out voluntarily, like she should

She is hoping to roll into the presidency before, or in spite off, the coming onslaught

10. I love the way you immediately pick up the slur on Clinton, notmypal.

You're already accusing her of not having the ethics to drop out of the race voluntarily for something there is no evidence she has ever done. So when did you stop beating your dog, Joey?

12. Please start paying attention

Even at this early stage in the investigations it is quite clear she has committed crimes.
The question of the day is 'how does she escape'?

13. Please start paying attention, Joey.

Your assuming guilt for things of which she's not even accused. You've gone of the deep end, my friend.

22. Pathetic

 

Sick of people who make everything somehow proof that Hillary committed some crime...no matter how baseless and no matter what the subject...you're on the wrong site, pal.

2. she won't be, but many of her very close associates will be named

She uses the foundation to the same effect.

3. Unlikely

American don't need things like that to hide their money from taxation. There are plenty of mechanisms in the US Tax Code alone to do that. That's not the case in foreign countries, which is why they need to use outside scams.

All you have to do is look at the Clinton Money Laundry, i.e. "Foundation."

Look at Mitt Romney who has been able to finagle the tax code to pass millions and millions of dollars to his kids without paying taxes.

Look at the corporations that legally park billions of dollars offshore -- and include that in their annual report.

Why would they need to funnel it through Panama?

You're free to wish all you want but chances are you'll be left walking.

21. Please note I didn't name any particular candidate.

I think most people at that elite level are potentially guilty of various financial or electoral scams. It's just a question of who might (almost at random) be implicated in this round of data dumps.

It will be ignored, and/or New laws will be written or bought to protect them, and/or pardon.

17. Is that toast soggy too?

I always like to use the term "burnt-soggy-toast" for really obviously bad things.

20. Stashing money to avoid taxes

 

may be unseemly but I haven't heard anything about it being illegal or indictable. If people (voters, the Democratic establishment, the main street media) are willing to overlook the unseemliness of Bill and Hillary to this point, what makes you think they would care about the Panama Papers.
