WikiLeaks spent the final weeks of the 2016 presidential election leaking information harmful to Hillary Clinton’s campaign -- but now they’re not happy with the man who beat her, President Donald Trump.
After Trump senior adviser Kellyanne Conway said Sunday morning that Mr. Trump had no plans to release his tax returns, a shift from his stance during the campaign, WikiLeaks tweeted its disappointment
WikiLeaks, founded by Julian Assange, posted thousands of hacked emails last year, first from the Democratic National Committee last summer and then from Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s personal email account in the fall.
Assange has said he did not get the emails from the Russian government, despite the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that the hacks were directed by Russian President Vladimir Putin. In the wake of the intelligence report on Russian hacking, Mr. Trump appeared to side with Assange over U.S. intelligence agencies on the issue of Russian hacking, though he has denied that he agrees with Assange.

Well gee Wikileaks, it's about damn time. Trump has only been saying he won't release them since forever but I guess late is better than never.

what do you hope to gain by seeing his tax return?
so, you find out he made millions last year and didn`t pay any taxes but it was all legal because the IRS has already done an audit and found nothing amiss, then what?
you go out and protest some more?
you go on social media and cry about it?
How is that going to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be?
so, you`re butt hurt and wasting a lot of emotional and mental energy crying to whoever will listen that trump makes way more money than you but pays way less taxes,
how is that going to help you achieve any of your liberal goals?
or maybe you aren`t interested in achieving any of those goals maybe you`re just interested in bitching and whining and are looking for any excuse to do it?
maybe you are more interested in continuing to divide people than you are in uniting people?

So by only focusing on personal tax returns and instead only showing the WH tax returns (which are public?), is this a legal or illegal move?
Also, is it really THAT necessary to show his personal returns even as President?
