So, in order to claim to be covered by this partial sentence, Trump would have to be guilty of a criminal action in a court.

Nope

You don't understand it so its poorly written?
Lol
Perhaps you are simply a poor reader?

Perhaps I am a poor reader.

Or, perhaps I am not.

Essay: Problems with the current US Constitution - Rational Wiki

It is a 200 year old document. The world changes and it speaks about situations which no longer exist. Situations like slavery and not allowing women to vote etc.

It needs a brush up and clarification of meaning. Not being discarded, but being revitalized in a way that all agree best captures its spirit and intent.

There is this small fact that it is not required of any president to release their tax returns for public scrutiny. As long as he doesn't do anything illegal, and by now the IRS would absolutely know if he did, then it's none of anyone's business how he made his money.


It's not that it's required. It's that it is customary. On top of that he said he would release them. His own words out of his mouth.
That is integrity.

Plus, there are plenty of things that are legal that could be seen as immoral. Hillary taking a bunch of lobbying money isn't illegal but damn is it sketchy. How do we know that Trump isn't using his position to enrich himself globally? He has properties all over the world, I think that could easily be a conflict of interest, but apparently it doesn't matter because of feels.

Those defending Trump hiding his tax returns are probably just afraid of what they might reveal in my opinion, otherwise why do they care so much? It's not their financials, it's the financials of someone who knowingly ran for public office, keyword "public". When you put yourself in that position you open yourself up to scrutiny.

Because it is his right to do so.

How about we request the tax returns for Obama whom became a multi-millionaire after being POTUS. Or Biden, or even Soros whom is behind every attempt by the left at destroying the U.S., ripping the U.S. Constitution, and he is behind the attempts at making the U.S. into a socialist nightmare...

Nope... Pointing out that POTUS Trump has a right to keep his tax returns to himself doesn't equal to "Trump supporters are afraid of what they might show..."

No he does not " open yourself up to scrutiny "
Why do you wish to trample others rights?
Are yours the only ones that have value to you?

You aren't really good, though (i'm not talking morally, I'm referring to political stability and assurance).

Trump has put in place an AG (Barr) who wrote about and supports the idea of unitary executive authority, which is damn close to dictatorship. Where is the support for that in the Constitution?

Trump also has tried several times to implement EO's that have been rejected for their unconstitutionality, and clearly has attempted overreach of his Constitutionally mandated limitations.

A dictatorship is not compliant with the dynamic of the balance of powers set up in the Constitution.

So, you are a poor reader of people, too!

I have a degree of Asbergers, so I know I can't read people well. At least It feels good to belong to a group of my peers.

The IRS and no one else decides if tax returns are proper. If they say something is legal, that’s it, ITS LEGAL, period.

The assumption/hopes of Potus's rivals believe there is something to find ..... Have you considered there maybe nothing ? I wouldn't voluntarily hand anything over to an enemy either -

Just going to be another "Nothing" burger with more time spent chasing Hopes and Dreams of those who never thought "She Would Lose"

Oh we are just fine( i't talking morally and with respect to political stablility and assurance)

Trump put no one in place, again you demonstrate the lack of understanding of our system you criticize. The senate confirmed the AG.
Not in any way your described"dictatorship".

The fact that he sent up eo's that were rejected demonstrates the lack of dictatorship.
You simply contradict yourself with that analysis.

The IRS will determine whether a tax return has been prepared and filed in accordance with the relevant tax laws.

The IRS will not determine, or comment, on whether the information or values presented on a tax return have been accurately or appropriately reported in the preparation or filing of any other legal document(s).

Documents on which willful misrepresentation(s) and/or falsification(s) could lead to prosecution for crimes, such as fraud.

bonespur blocks taxes, again, how many times now? Must look like he has something to hide to even his most deranged supporters now, surely?

The Justice Department asked a federal appeals court on Friday to stop the release of President Trump’s tax returns to the Manhattan district attorney’s office, arguing that local prosecutors should have to meet a very high legal bar before investigating a sitting president.
bill barr and the Justice Department to the rescue, again, but interestingly

in its filing, the Justice Department, which is led by Attorney General William P. Barr, stopped short of endorsing Mr. Trump’s most sweeping argument: that sitting presidents are totally immune from all criminal investigations.
So sitting presidents are not totally immune from all criminal investigations. What changed?
