Daily Call To Action: March 16th, 2017

The Call – Request #TrumpTaxes

Urge members of Congress to demand President Trump’s tax returns, whether by subpoena, resolution, legislation or otherwise. Democrats and a growing number of Republicans in the House and Senate have supported a variety of different initiatives to obtain Trump’s tax returns which Trump, unlike any president in 50 years, has refused to release. The enormous interest in the small piece of his taxes leaked to Rachel Maddow, possibly by Trump himself, disproves Trump’s claim that his election proves no one but the press is interested in his returns. Tim O’Brien, the author of a book on Trump who Trump later sued, saw Trump’s tax returns in the litigation (which Trump lost). The tax returns were sealed by the court and O’Brien is prohibited from revealing any details, but he says the public should very much want to see them. Questions about Trump’s foreign ties mount, particularly regarding his ties to Russia, with almost daily revelations. Most recently, Roger Stone, a long-time GOP political operative who served as one of Trump’s earliest campaign advisers, admitted that he communicated with with Guccifer 2.0, a Russian agent posing as a Hungarian hacker, at least 16 times. It is imperative that members of Congress, by any of the various methods available to them, obtain the President’s taxes. The American people have a right to know what Trump’s taxes show that he has been so careful to conceal.
