No Secret, Democrats want Trump’s tax returns. I mean they really want them. So listen up, people, there are new rules now. Why? Because Trump is president, which is always more than enough reason to change the rules and even the law.
But Democrats don’t tell the other real part about why they want or need them.
See current state of agument CNBCFriday 5/10/19
“The subpoenas came four days after Mnuchin said that he would not allow Trump’s personal and business tax returns to be released to Congress because he had determined that the request “lacks a legitimate legislative purpose.”
And the new rules are that the House Inquisition Committee — aka House Ways and Means Committee in Congress — demands you must turn over your tax returns to them. But they want them so they can weaponize them and use them against you. No problem. (why else would they need them?) Should you run for public office, particularly president, these are the new rules. See Inquisition’s rule.
That is not in the Constitution but so what? It doesn’t need to be. Now if you do not comply, Inquisitors will force the state to cough them up. (in the case of NY at least) They will have made new law about your taxes and complying, but there is no law that says they need to have them. Just that if they want them, then they must have them. There is no law that says they need them for that purpose. That doesn’t matter.
This bothers no one on the Left. They see this as perfectly normal. Why, because Trump is president and they don’t like it. Therefore change election rules. NY legislators cannot say it is only for Trump because that would be illegal, to make bills of attainder for one person, so statist lawmakers make it a blanket rule to say it applies to everyone.
And what Congress wants, congress shall have. Never mind the reason they want it. Never mind due process. Of course the reason is to weaponize it against you, publicly.
Maybe it just matters who is controlling the Inquisition Committee, or maybe it doesn’t? If you are a Republican running for President, then expect your tax returns to be pulled, weaponized (spread) and used against you. Nothing personal. If not they will subpoena you and/or lock you up, basically to prevent you from running.
That is the next part, what is the enforcement mechanism? For one thing they set the precedent that a conservative cannot run for prez unless you comply with that. So they added a fiat requirement to the Constitution.
Seize taxes, see info, weaponize it, to attack you with it. What part of Article I is that?
Not to worry, supposedly none of this could apply or be used against Democrats.
