Sunday morning brings a new perspective to the controversy about Trumps tax records. It seems the New York Times got ahold of some of Trumps tax records and published them. The Trump camp published a statement:
The only news here is that the more than 20-year-old alleged tax document was illegally obtained, a further demonstration that the New York Times, like establishment media in general, is an extension of the Clinton campaign, the Democratic Party and their global special interest.
The NYT recently endorsed Hillary. (Anyone want to bet that guy Koskien had one of his flunkies at the IRS do the digging?) Remember it was Hillary that obtained up to 900 FBI files of opponenets druring Bill’s reign:
Filegate: The confidential FBI files of up to 900 former Reagan and Bush appointees were sent over to White House security chief Craig Livingstone. Deputy White House counsel William Kennedy, a close friend of Hillary Clinton’s from their days at the Rose Law Firm, would frequently call up the FBI and have someone’s files sent over on his say-so. Then-FBI director Louis Freeh called it “an egregious violation of privacy.”
The Times received the pages in the mail:
The pages were mailed last month to Susanne Craig, a reporter at The Times who has written about Mr. Trump’s finances,” the paper explained in the story. “The documents were the first page of a New York State resident income tax return, the first page of a New Jersey nonresident tax return and the first page of a Connecticut nonresident tax return.”
The gist of the return is that Trumps return indicted a loss that year of $916 million. Then the times speculates about the future to paint a negative picture:
a tax deduction so substantial it could have allowed him to legally avoid paying any federal income taxes for up to 18 years.”
Legally avoid? How about LEGALLY KEEP the money HE DOES NOT OWE PER THE TAX CODE!”
No sane person in America, including Hillary Clinton, would pay tax they do not owe!
Democrats are deceitful…in particular about taxes. Democrats held the majority in Congress for most of the 40 or 50 years when much of the tax code was written. The so-called loop holes were inserted by them! The tax code became complicated to protect the wealth of many of them and their supporters.
How many of Hillary’s big money donors have IRS filings she would object to politically? Most likely ALL of them.
Disingenuous Hillary has a plan to take wealth through a higher death tax. Neither she, nor any of her wealthy friends would ever pay that tax. They live their high life by creating foundations that allow them to keep and direct their wealth while living high on the hog and paying as little as possible to the government come tax time. The people that would be hurt are small business owners and their heirs who don;t have the means or the savvy to avoid the tax man.
Simplification of the tax code is the only way to ensure that we all pay and we pay a “fair share.” Democrats are four square against it. Guess why.
Fitting end to this story? The NYT paid zero tax in 2014. as Breitbart reports they “got an income tax refund of $3.5 million even though they had a pre-tax profit of $29.9 million in 2014. That’s a result of loss carry over…the very thing th times speculated made Trump some kind of tax criminal. The left is slime!
