    If they are brought to court for this, I will happily chip in twenty-five or fifty bucks to their defense fund.

    In the meantime, I'm tuning in. Pass the popcorn.

    Oh, I’m sure that “the lawyers” have been all over this story before it went to press.

    A legal inquiry into anyone's taxes is acceptable in any court. Even Trump can't hide the truth, although he tries and tries and tries and tries...

    Yeah, that’ll be “the real story”, “who leaked!?”
    It certainly won’t be the myriad financial entanglements the Trump Empire is currently engage in. Nope.
    “Find the leakers!”

    Should be interesting.

    See what a clever businessman our Donald is? He's managed to keep his taxes down to a mere $750 a year for 2016 & 2017.

    The Times has the right under the First Amendment to keep its sources private.

    Although Mary Trump revealed she had provided the evidence to the Times about the financial crimes her grandfather and three of his four living children committed to avoid estate taxes, the Times had kept her role confidential.

    The lawyer who handled Fred Trump, Sr.'s estate had let Mary see the papers, not knowing the nest of vipers she would uncover and share.

    The NY Times has already won one Pulitzer for the story of the older generation's financial misdeeds.
    They certainly will deserve another for this!

    Unless tax returns are public information ,( they are not to my knoWledge) then this was unlawfully leaked, in violation of rights to data protection by statutory bodies.

    Here's what the publisher of the Times said about that:
    After all, as the Times says in the boldface phrase, isn't it just a case of "You asked for it, you got it?"

    "Trump’s Taxes Show Chronic Losses and Years of Income Tax Avoidance"

    Are losses and avoidance illegal?

    Has the IRS gotten involved, did they find any wrong doing by Trump?

    Hearing the Trump rags to riches story really makes me want to become a gold-plated dog-poop lifestyle brand salesman.

    "Durangodawood Steaks! Better than plain wood steaks!" Anybody?

    No. I don’t think the point is that he’s done anything illegal. He might have, but the NY Times data wouldn’t show it. It’s that he is a lousy businessman, whose main talent is shifting losses to other people. But we knew that already. So there’s little new information here.

    Seems to me he's doing pretty good for himself.

    My guess is, intentionally or not, you are spinning things and you, may not know what you are talking about, and what we are seeing may be normal for someone who's doing quit well.

    I expect that from the Times and anyone that might be against Trump are going to blindly agree with NYT, without giving the truth a second thought....that's what they do here, plain and simple.

    Question is, is there really a problem or is this, as they say, just business as usual?

    Except you are trusting him to run a trillion dollar budget.
    The deficits have exploded--even before COVID.
    His mismanagement is bankrupting the country!
