An Inspector General has ruled in favor of Steve Mnuchin who did not comply with a Congressional request for Trump’s tax returns. The finding is that Mnuchin is OKAY because he acted in accordance with a ruling by Trump’s DOJ that he did not have to comply with the request even though the law explicitly entitles Congress to review the tax filing of ANY citizen. The IG says he is not in position to evaluate the legal soundness of the DOJ guidance, only that Mnuchin followed it. You cannot make this stuff up. Maybe a court will uphold the law?
The more ardently Trump fights to keep his PROMISED tax returns secret the more certain we can be that they totally refute his claims to being worth $10 billion and undoubted provide more evidence of how deeply he is in thrall to foreign interests, especially Russian oligarchs.
Not that one is needed, but this particular broken promise will be yet another damning campaign issue for the Biden campaign. It is an easy question that people will understand – what is he hiding?
