Democrats Demand Trumps Tax Returns And An Investigation Into His Conflicts Of Interest

Democrats Demand Trump’s Tax Returns And An Investigation Into His Conflicts Of Interest

By Jason Easley on Mon, Nov 28th, 2016 at 3:11 pm


House Oversight Committee Democrats are demanding that President-elect Trump releases his tax returns and that an immediate investigation is launched into Trump’s conflicts of interest.


In a letter to House Oversight Committee Chair Rep. Jason Chaffetz(R-UT), the committee’s Democrats wrote:



The House Oversight Democrats argued that the Trump family’s global holdings will create conflicts of interest around the world.

Republicans are already treating Trump differently than they treated President Obama. During his time in office, Obama has dealt with a House Republican majority that spent years investigating baseless conspiracy theories, but when presented with a president-elect who has refused all calls for transparency, these same House Republicans have chosen to look the other way.

The Trump conflict of interest story is not going to go away. It will likely be a theme of his presidency.

1. I hope the democrats don't let up on this. There are some extremely serious shenanigans

going on with Trump. I can't believe this deranged con artist is so close now to the presidency. FFS, wake up Americans.

13. i think we need to make sure that all of our

congresspeople appreciate that this must be acted upon. if pressure from the people is not brought to bear this will come to nothing. even with it, it could come to nothing. these are republicans we're talking about.

4. I think after he takes office

the republicans in congress will join Democratic members in removing him.
They want Pence.

5. Not a chance

 

They already have Pence. Trump doesn't give a shit about governing. He will let Pence do hat he wants who Trump is busy lining his pockets through graft. No way the GOP overturns Trump unless he does something that makes him EXTREMELY unpopular -- so unpopular that the GOP fears they would lose both houses in 2018.

And considering Trump is an admitted sex offender and there were no consequences to that, I am having trouble envisioning what he could possibly do to drop to the level that the GOP would decide to knock him off.

He is pals with Putin. No consequences.
He violated the law about business with Cuba. No consequences.
He is already using his future office to get concessions for Trump hotels. No consequences.

Seriously, what would he have to do? Trump himself said he could shoot a man dead on 5th Avenue and there would be no consequences. I think he is right.

14. I'm glad someone is doing something.

I don't like the idea of just giving up and giving in.

8. Great to hear. The call for investigations will imply potential law breaking-sound familiar?

This may be an effective means of countering Trump even if the Republican's hold the power in the legislature. Work on swaying the public perception of Trump with a view toward the mid-terms and 2020.

12. It should be no disclosure, no electorals should vote for him

It should disqualify him.

Who does he owe money to, is it the Chinese or the Russians?

Turning over business to kids, is a joke, he will still be making all the decisions.

18. Unfortunately, laws, constitutions, ethics don't apply to Republicans

It's only illegal when a Democrat does it. And usually Repubs accuse Dems whether they're doing anything wrong or not.
