The long concealed taxes are now in the hands of the Media. And, he is nowhere near as rich as he portrays himself to be.


This pauper would not even qualify for a security clearance.


He's selling America out to save his ass. Maybe some of his supporters will finally realize that.
He owes money in Turkey. I wonder if that has anything to do with him betraying our allies the Kurds. They died.

I would really like to know why he did what, and came about after a phone call from Erdogan. Trump is not a strong ally. He failed to stand up for our allies, and he left them to be killed. Why?

Well this is just the first shoe dropping. This is just money lost by the "brilliant" businessman Donald. Notice the Media is not accusing Donald of Tax Evasion. Tax avoidance is legal use of the tax code to your personal benefit. Anybody that does not think there is a pile of tax evasion that Trump Corp has been conducting all these years, PLEEEEEEASE give me some of what you are smoking.
Still waiting on the proof. The left has told so many lies about Trump its not even worth looking at until the proof is provided. I'm sure like so many other claims the proof is never coming.

He's a broke dick dog....with nowhere near the respect of the canine.

He can't manage his own finances but he's supposed to manage America's finances? I guess that explains we're in such a financial mess.

We NEVER got to 4.0% GDP like he claimed even before the pandemic. We had 6% and 8% under Clinton and Reagan yet he claims best economy ever. He came in with a 4.7% unemployment rate that had been dropping steadily for 6 years. It only dropped down 1% under his administration before shooting back up after his mismanaged corona crisis.

I heartily encourage Trump to set the DoJ on the NY Times and whoever the leaker is.
There is a significant limit to what they DOJ can do. There is zero evidence at this point that the NYT committed a crime, and the DOJ would have zero leverage to find out who the source of the documents was.

The Times reported: “Trump’s private records show that his company once paid $747,622 in fees to an unnamed consultant for hotel projects in Hawaii and Vancouver, British Columbia. Ivanka Trump’s public disclosure forms – which she filed when joining the White House staff in 2017 – show that she had received an identical amount through a consulting company she co-owned.”

i remember someone saying this back in the day.
So do I - - -YOU and I said it a lot, too.
How could anyone NOT see it coming?
I mean, a casino is a license to print money and he bankrupted...what was it...FOUR of them in a row?
Yeah of course he's a pauper, yeah of course he is cheating on his taxes, yeah of course everything Trump is a gigantic illusion and it always HAS been.

But yes, you were indeed among the first! 0003-ThumbsUp (2019_02_27 17_41_55 UTC).gif

Well Donald has sort of boxed himself in if you are referring to proof of criminal matters. Its just logic. The loan documents show assets worth X and Trump's tax returns show asset worth of <X. So Donald may not be guilty of Tax Evasion and may only have been engaged in Tax avoidance in which case he only owes the back taxes, the interest on the back taxes and the penalties. That said, in Donald's case that looks like millions of $. He has got one refund of 72M that the IRS is trying to wade through.

That brings us to the loan documents which value the very same assets higher than they are valued in the Tax Records.

So the only waiting to be done as far as criminal liability is concerned is waiting to see if Donald faces Tax Fraud and Bank Fraud or just Bank Fraud and a huge tax liability that does not carry any criminal liablity.

Then there is is the $400M and change of loans that are coming due in the nest three years. Donald does not have the money to pay those loans back. What does he intend doing about that and why should we want a President in the WH balancing how he comes up with $400M he does not have and how that might drive his activity as Chief Executive.

Trump will be the first former US president to flee the country after being defeated.
Mr. Putin has a warm spot waiting for him in bed, he's welcome as the inner spoon.....always.

Of course. There is a carefully planned roll out of bombshells all the way to the election. It's what you get when the watchdogs are actually propagandists.


Remember, Democrats don't get prosecuted, no matter how serious.


Nice of you to have your prejudices in plain sight.
Funny but nothing but Democrats are being investigated or forced to resign for spurious reasons or both by Trump.

The spooky thing is that this revelation could be the reason why Trump is so cozy with Putin--because he owes Putin and Russian oligarchs hundreds of millions of dollars in loans they made to him which are coming due in the next 5 years. Just exactly how much would Trump's debt to Putin and Co. compromise his ability to deal with Russia in a military crisis becomes a very scary prospect with Trump and Putin both holding the nuclear codes. Would Trump hesitate to fire on Russia if Russia launched a pre-emptive nuclear attack on America? Or would he hop Air Force 1 to get the hell out and save his own skin, leaving America to dig out from under the rubble? Given what we know about how much Trump cares about people's lives I'd be willing to bet on the latter.

We'll be seeing the first of Barr's October surprises by the end of the week.

All talke, no proof. We are waiting to see the documentation. The democrats are so scared of loosing they just keep making up crap before the election and before the debates. Biden has to have something to talk about other than his crazy liberal policies or his sons using his name to get millions form China, Ukrains and China.

Broke? Doubt it.

But anyone who thinks being the POTUS is a job where make more money than you did before, doesn't get it. Trump has spent much money in legal fees, same thing that happened to the Clintons. After Bill Clinton left office they quickly become multi-millionaires. Same is happening with the Obamas too right now.

I wouldn't worry about Donald Trump going to the poor farm any time soon.

He's already lost about 9% of this base. I can see something like this costing him a few more. People who pay several thousand dollars a year in tax on $40K in income do not take kindly to a guy pretending to be worth billions paying nothing.
Most of Trump's supporters have said he could do anything and they would still vote for him:
