Should Donald Trump release his tax returns? Sure. So why won’t he? There are probably a few embarrassing things tucked away in there, but I doubt this is the real reason. The real reason is that they’d show Trump isn’t worth $10 billion. Or $5 billion. Or, who knows, maybe not even $1 billion. His ego just couldn’t stand having that made public.
Still, he did promise to release them. And Quin Hillyer has an…exotic reason why he should keep that promise:
Republicans, especially delegates, have every right not just to ask for, but to demand, the release of the returns before the convention. With a crew of Lois Lerners running the IRS, those returns surely will leak right after the nomination is made formal.
That’s right. The IRS is such a beehive of Democratic Party corruption that Hillary Clinton will have no trouble getting one of her moles to hand over the entire Trump record. Hell, she’s probably done it already and is just waiting for the right time to start dribbling out explosive revelations. It’s exactly the kind of thing she’d do. Amirite or amirite?
Between left and right, I feel like I’m almost entirely enveloped by bizarre paranoia these days. Can we all just settle down and return to planet Earth for a while?
