In just picturing the millions of Americans sitting at home trying to decide whether they want to vote for Clinton or Trump or Sanders or Cruz... "I'll just wait till I see his tax return for 2015... Yeah that'll be the decider"
So funny when you really think and picture these arguments.
I think you are way wide of the point.
The fact you don't think it will be a problem is pretty irrelevant. The point is that a republican, Romney, is on the attack and doing the TV rounds to cast doubt on their own leading candidate. Whether it will work or not is another question, but amazes me that he would be shining a light on it right now.
Mitt Romney suggests potential "bomb shell" in Trumps tax returns
It’s not the first time Romney, the former chief executive of Bain Capital, a successful private equity firm, has performed a verbal do-si-do on stage with regards to this question. Last month, he told Chuck Todd of MSNBC, “I don’t intend to release the tax returns. I don’t.” But later, he was more equivocal, saying, “Time will tell,” and “I’ll keep that open,” and then suggesting that he “wouldn’t be opposed” to releasing the forms, “if that’s been the tradition.” Finally, he said he’d “probably” release them—but only maybe, and only if he becomes the nominee.
The thing is, Romney doesn’t have to release anything if he doesn’t want to. Legally, tax returns are private. Presidential hopefuls must only file a financial disclosure report to the Office of Government Ethics, and Romney did that (revealing, for the record, that he’s worth between $190 and $250 million buckaroos).
Pretty sure Mitt really isn't the guy to be calling someone out because of their taxes...I guess he has a short memory.

Could the bombshell be a contribution to a left wing charity like planned parenthood?
It would be hysterical if he gave money to the Democratic party.

" The message is even stronger .. "we have good reason to believe there is a bombshell in trumps taxes" "
Yeah , The Bombshell being He Actually Pays Taxes , Unlike about Over 50 Percent of the Population in the United States . In 2005 , his Declared Income was 150 Million , he Payed 38 Million in Taxes that Year . I'd Fire his Accountant .
