Then they are really stretching the definition of executive session, since by definition it deals with business from the Executive branch.

We'll see.... still think it's a political gimmick.

The definition extends to private and public corporate entities, so it really doesn’t have that much to do with the Executive branch of the federal government.

Executive sessions are intended to protect the innocent and assure confidentiality about sensitive matters. The time spent in executive session is not for formal voting, rather time spent sorting things out privately. Board members don’t take any parliamentary action during executive session.

I've never seen a group of bureaucrats try so hard to get someone's private financial records, which are confidential by law.

This is corrupt and crooked.

So a multi-millionaire turned politician, need to see the tax records.

But a politician turned multi-millionaire? Crickets.

This is what I want to see. . . . .

"I left my tax returns are on your mama's pillow, bitch."
Donald Trump


Wow, cowboy this is only about transparency, which by the way, every other President put it forth

In a gadda da vida.


So in the interest of transparency, all of Congress and the House of Representatives should as well, right?

Since this is all about fairness...

PS... Pelosi already said no to that.

And you should probably know that no, not all Presidents have done that.

So they’re using the excuse to audit the IRS to obtain Trumps tax returns. Democrats are so shady.

Yes, ideed, force the all. Let's get the true picture.

While I generally agree with you there is this statement also.

a particular taxpayer shall be furnished to such committee only when sitting in closed executive session unless such taxpayer otherwise consents in writing to such disclosure.

I think that says they can see it for an individual in closed session but cannot make any information that will identify the individual or any copies public. I think....

As for Nadlers request Mueller has supplied a press ready copy of most of his reports according to people who know how he operates. They probably already have a copy that can be released.

That was what I was thinking about in the OP.
The Senate Finance Committee could request the tax returns of every Democrat in Congress and review them in closed committee.... if they wanted to do that.

Which does not apply to the Federal government at all.

Public and private entities have executives, so yes, an executive session makes sense.

However...


The concept originated with the Executive Branch of the Federal Government to allow the U.S. Senate and the President to deliberate on such matters as appointments, treaties and nominations.


That is the Federal definition.

Let's put it this way. Democrats don't care about the rule of law when it comes to...

1. Illegal Immigration
2. Crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants
3. Baby Murder
4. National Security
6. Grand Jury Testimony
7. Privacy of any kind...

And that's just for starters.

I know he has to leak it to get it out... I get that.

However, he will be breaking the law by doing so, since it includes grand jury information.

Let's see where THAT goes, shall we?

You have a good point and I will bow out of the thread on that note...

Doesn't matter if it's legal or not...

What matters is overturning the results of the 2016 election By Any Means Necessary.

We'll see where it goes and Trump's response.

He'll get another star from me if his response is a 500 megaton DECLASS bomb and then let's see what cockroaches are left after that.

Please link for me the law that states that a President has to release his/her tax returns.

I'll wait for it...

If they have nothing to hide, there should be no forcing.

I missed your reply to me where it should be OK for all of Congress and the House to put out their tax returns as well, in the interest of transparency.

After all, if they have nothing to hide, there should be no forcing, right?

But they already asked Trumpity Trump for his tax information and he was not forthcoming...red flags, right there.

Surely this contingency plan will ultimately succeed in destroying Trump where the Russia collusion failed making it possible for a democrat to win in 2020.

They have to destroy him to win!

Any means necessary!

His tax returns, anyone's tax returns are filed under, "Nunya".

Dems still don't have anything to run on except "get Trump", borders are bad, and we need higher unemployment and more taxes.

I want to see Trump's tax returns for the big picture of who and what he is.

Why?
