    Yes....I don't think it should be a requirement....you don't learn anything from them....I do like that they have fin disclosures that are required you learn a lot from them

    Different reporting different numbers and when you apply for a mortgage or loan on real estate it's up to the bank or lender to do their own appraisal and your tax appraisal is done by the government. They are VERY subjective numbers which is why they sometimes end up in court over disputes.

    Your asking why the SCOTUS couldn't resolve the issue the first time? Pretty obvious, they punted for a reason, to delay the outcome, the decision now won't come till after the election and won't generate the media attention it has now

    Matters little, Trump go what he wanted, as is his usual strategdy, he buried the case in the Courts, there will be no end till after the election, that is what happens when you have an army of attorneys and accountants plus the DOJ to back you up

    You do know that even if Vance gets them YOU will not SEE them unless someone in his office ILLEGALLY leaks them. Is that what you want for them to be ILLEGALLY released?

    One can learn a great deal about a person from their taxes. AKA, profiling, the IRS and FBI have been doing it for a century.

    Sure you can learn what someone made in one year...that's about it.

    Releasing them by the President has happened since Nixon, but that tradition went out the door thanks to Harry Reid and his lies and attacks on Mitt Romney....Trump has stated that was one of the reasons he won't release them

    So, you can blame Reid:

    I am not responsible for your inability to see more than 2 parties, Not everyone that opposes your parties abuse of power is a Trump supporter. I didn't vote for him and in November, I will be voting for Jo.

    Well, it's certainly working... nobody can say it's been an ineffective strategy...

    He loses in the end, but people are so freaking tired of caring and fighting, few remember what started the legal fight to begin with..

    Trump is an amoral loser, but he's certainly given America a lesson in how to avoid justice...

    Harry Reid said those things because Romney did not release his taxes. Taxes that Trump promised to release, but we all know how valuable his word is.

    Yep I agree in a picture world but beyond that aspect at this point it's just such negative pr to have continually hanging around. Personally I feel like pr is a huge chunk of politics

    Trump never promised to release Romney's taxes.

    I don't care about Trump's taxes. Harry Reid openly lied about Romney's taxes though...so if the Dems are willing to make those horrible false accusations I don't blame the President for not releasing them

    Makes me hate Fox and Trump's Senate and House enablers even more. They at least should have a sense of patriotism and responsibility that takes precedence over their own interests, but they have failed miserably in this and do not deserve the power that they hold. They've shown that they can't be trusted with it, that they are corrupt and will harm this country to save themselves, that they are ultimately no better than Trump himself.

    FWIW, I wouldn't want random people digging around in my tax returns either, and there's nothing in there that I desperately don't want people to know.

    I find the integrity of the office more important.

    I think it goes deeper than that. Everything I have read about Epstein and Roy Cohn Says that they were crooks of the highest order and specialised in keeping blackmail material and where they could not get it honestly they manufactured it. Cohn in particular was known to be dirty as and he was the reason Trump could not get a casino license in Sydney because of the mob connections
