Trump says he'll release financial records before election, knocks Dems' efforts

Source: The Hill

President Trump on Thursday blasted investigators seeking his financial records and said he would release them voluntarily ahead of the 2020 election, although he made a similar pledge in 2016.

ďBob Mueller, after spending two years and 45 million dollars, went over all of my financials, & my taxes, and found nothing. Now the Witch Hunt continues with local New York Democrat prosecutors going over every financial deal I have ever done,Ē Trump tweeted, referencing an investigation by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr.

ďWhat they are doing is not legal. But Iím clean, and when I release my financial statement (my decision) sometime prior to Election, it will only show one thing - that I am much richer than people even thought,Ē Trump added.

We assumed he had access to trumpfts taxes, but mueller didn't investigate the financial aspects of the case. Something about "scope of investigation" that was given to him.

Hopefully he won't have to release them himself. I wouldn't trust what he supplied anyway.

29. Which means he's found out he was going to be ruled against and have to let them be turned over

His statement now is just like he' done before , try to put out a doctored returns to claim his innocence with from a lie. A con man trick he's used many times before, then promote it as the truth with , when he knows it isn't. He does this asap when he has information ahead of the ruling, so did he call Supreme Court Justice Roberts to lean on him for what he wanted and failed? I suspect he did. Or tried to pressure Roberts,and Roberts refused his demand. Telephone records would show if he did this also.

37. +1! Or ...

he's trying to influence the SCOTUS prior to their actual consideration of the appeal -- providing them with an "escape hatch", a "rationale" they can use in their autobiographies to mitigate a decision to uphold his appeal. He's used this tactic many times before as well ... I'm guessing his source for half of these cockamamie tactics come from his nightly consultations with Hannity.

Iím a new poster here, but by posting this article from this publication just to point out that itís a lie, is, itself, an act of spreading misinformation? I donít want to start a rumble or anything, but I am personally avoiding The Hill until we get a much clearer understanding of the role of John Solomon in spreading Russian propaganda as tested to by Dr. Hill.

57. Stop for a second and realize that this is a "supposed" NEWS site

That actually ran this fucking story!

Just think about that for a fucking second as you weep for the shithole our country has become.

Is this fucking newsworthy? Fuck no!

Is this some kind of new revelation? Fuck no!

Is this something you would believe? Fuck no!

This is nothing more than regurgitating the ramblings of a senile old man. A man who, if you saw them on the street rambling on, you'd offer to help them, or move to the other side of the street.

The Hill is a fucked up turd polishing piece of amphibian shit, but they waste bandwidth on this?

Can't we just go one fucking day without the nonsensical rantings of our drunk, perverted uncle being forced down our fucking throats?

Can we just have a fucking day free of this ignorant fuckstick?

Can we just have a day where I can pretend that this dipshit isn't shitting in the White House?

There's a story out about increased mental health issues in our fucking country.

Shit like this Hill story explains why.

This God Damned "squirio priest fuck" country has lost its God Damned mind.
