    Trump's tax returns made public

    I can't see why knowing the private tax returns of a politician is in the public interest. There are audited laws in place they need to follow to pay tax. That should be sufficient.

    Legal and political / ethical issues are different?

    Can't wait for the next GOP Committee to release the tax returns of every family member of Democratic members of Congress

    Very petty and turns out to be a waste of time with no smoking gun.

    Should've held them back to use against him if he runs for 2024. Right now looks like another own goal for the Dems.

    Agree, no point. A grifter that cheats at every single opportunity. Obviously he won't pay tax.

    Trump broke his promise to release them and lied about the reason. Good someone held the lying cheating piece of shit to account

    Biden already released his.

    Nobody cares. He isn't president anymore and the voters have already held him accountable for his lies. The returns also contain no bombshell about him committing any illegal acts.

    Nobody cares? Must be why it’s been front page news across the globe.

    I’m sure he lied and cheated on his taxes - he has a history of manipulating building valuations to generate non-existent losses to offset against income and minimize tax. No doubt this will all become clear over time as more light is thrown on his shitty little empire.

    Probably, but there is no way Congress, the news or the public would be able to verify that just from releasing his 1040s. But then, proving he is a tax cheat was never the purpose of the whole thing, only to possibly "embarrass" him. Or they would have released proof of his illegal acts instead.

    I wanna see Pelosi's tax returns, apparently she's worth some $120 million on a $220k salary.

    This is true. It is also very interesting that the IRS failed in their legal obligation to audit him. It reflects very poorly on them and it wouldn’t be too surprising to find undue influence had been exerted on them.
