Nixon gave his up immediately, which gives me an idea! Trump should resign and become a respected elder statesman like Nixon did!
I'm going out on a limb, here. . . .  I predict that will NOT happen.

. . .I find it amusingly disingenuous to think anyone's tax records are "private" where the government is concerned...
You think everyone's tax records should be made public?   Huh

No, just everyone who is elected to federal office or works for the federal government.

Because they handle our money, are entrusted with using it properly and legally, and have opportunities to use the power entrusted to them to enrich themselves?

If given a choice between two candidates, I will vote for the one who pays the least in income taxes.

I think elected representatives should be savvy about sheltering their money from the government.

That shows they have "right stuff" and lean libertarian.

Too bad working people can't "shelter" their money from the taxman.

There are many ways to shelter money from the taxman.  Here's my favorite:

On company paid their employees only with American Gold Eagles (face value $50).

So each employee who earned $1485 a week was paid ONE gold eagle coin per week.

The employee "earned" $5940 per month, but was only "paid" $200 for the month (four gold eagle coins).

So they never even had to file Federal Income Tax since they were paid only $2600 for the year!! (the minimum taxable income is $12,000)

They were paid a total of 52 $50 gold coins - which ARE legal tender.

Brilliant!!!    Smiley Smiley

To continue your fantasy for you, they had their assets seized and are now in jail. Brilliant.

Edit: Chief, I have to tell you, the part about an employer paying you with gold coins is the least believable part of your scenario; unless you are a hit man for a major smuggling operation? Shocked

You must admit, it nicely demonstrates the stupidity of income tax laws.  Ok. . .  back to impeachment stuff. .

BREAKING NEWS

Today, Speaker Pelosi gave attack-dog Nadler the go-ahead without first holding a floor vote on whether to conduct hearings into the president’s impeachment.

Tump’s lawyers will argue that the absence of the floor vote means the current impeachment inquiry does not have the legal standing that such an inquiry normally acquires  - this means there will be no unsealing of secret grand jury materials - which are critical to the success of any impeachment inquiry.

So basically the impeachment horse has been shot dead before even left the gate!  LOL

Do the dem's have some wicked trick up their sleeves?   I doubt they're clever enough for that.
