House Democrat says current Congress may not see Trump taxes

Source: Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A senior Democrat on a congressional panel seeking President Donald Trump’s tax returns warned on Saturday that the current Congress may not see the long-sought tax documents without launching an impeachment inquiry.

Representative Lloyd Doggett, who sits on the House Ways and Means Committee, said Democrats, who control the House of Representatives, were slow to request Trump’s tax returns from the Internal Revenue Service and now need to push back forcefully against Trump’s refusal to turn over the returns.

“Because this request was delayed until April and no legal action has yet been filed to get the returns, it is certain we won’t get them this year and perhaps (will face) some challenge to even get them with favorable expedited rulings by the time this Congress ends,” Doggett, who chairs the House Ways and Means health subcommittee, told CNN.

“That and the total obstruction by Trump have convinced me that we need to institute an impeachment inquiry,” the Texas Democrat said. “I just think we need a thorough investigation and a strong pushback immediately to a president who believes he’s above the law.”

4. "anyone who wants to can look at photos of the president's naked wife"





"We live in a country where anyone who wants to can look at photos of the president's naked wife, but no one can look at his tax returns."

6. Then what are they waiting for! IMPEACH NOW

Nothing would demonstrate Trump's criminal behavior to the voting public better than his tax returns and financial records.

Impeach Trump, make his finances public, and watch for the public outcry to send him to prison.

7. Keeping hope?

I swear I feel like beating my head against a wall every day. How do you all keep hope? I am so sick of seeing this administration do whatever they want with no consequence.
