New York Times Goes Full ‘Resistance’ with Trump Tax Docs

Trump’s business gambles didn’t always pay off, it turns out, but that doesn’t seem to be bothering his base.

For years, we have been hearing about Donald Trump’s tax returns.

We’ve heard that they’re under audit.  We’ve heard that they would otherwise be released.  We’ve heard that there’s nothing to learn from them.

We’ve heard a lot of things.

But that hasn’t stopped congressional democrats from attempting to unearth the documents in recent weeks through subpoenas and legislation.  This fight has gone all the way to the treasury department, with head Steve Mnuchin just the other day defying the requests from Congress directly.

The New York Times was somehow able to procure similar documents to those requested, and have published their findings.

The data — printouts from Trump’s official Internal Revenue Service tax transcripts, with the figures from his federal tax form, the 1040, for the years 1985 to 1994 — represents the fullest and most detailed look to date at the president’s taxes, information he has kept from public view. Though the information does not cover the tax years at the center of an escalating battle between the Trump administration and Congress, it traces the most tumultuous chapter in a long business career — an era of fevered acquisition and spectacular collapse.

The numbers show that Trump’s bold business dealings weren’t entirely successful.

The numbers show that in 1985, Trump reported losses of $46.1 million from his core businesses — largely casinos, hotels and retail space in apartment buildings. They continued to lose money every year, totaling $1.17 billion in losses for the decade.

In fact, year after year, Trump appears to have lost more money than nearly any other individual American taxpayer, The Times found when it compared his results with detailed information the IRS compiles on an annual sampling of high-income earners. His core business losses in 1990 and 1991 — more than $250 million each year — were more than double those of the nearest taxpayers in the IRS information for those years.

While the figures may be staggering to some, Trump’s fortune is built upon the concept that “scared money don’t make none”.

Furthermore, given the glut of other attack being leveled at the President in 2019, these alleged “revelations” aren’t likely to moe the needle on his approval ratings.

Dems Demand Bolton Testify After Book Allegedly Says Trump Withheld Ukraine Aid (Details)

‘Allegedly’ is the keyword…

Democrats really, really, really want to see former NSA John Bolton testify before Congress. They believe he knows something about President Trump and Ukraine that the administration is hiding. This is a long shot. First of all, if Bolton knew something it would’ve been leaked to a reporter by now. Secondly, as you’ll see in the Twitter thread below, Bolton’s lawyer has no clue what Dems are talking about. From MSN via NYT: President Trump told his national security adviser in August that he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens, according to an unpublished manuscript by the former adviser, John R. Bolton. The president’s statement as described by Mr. Bolton could undercut a key element of his impeachment defense: that the holdup in aid was separate from Mr. Trump’s requests that Ukraine announce investigations into his perceived enemies, including former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son Hunter Biden, who had worked for a Ukrainian energy firm while his father was in office.

Rashida Tlaib Retweets Story About Israelis Killing Palestinian Boy, But It Never Happened

The definition of ‘fake news’…

Rashida Tlaib hasn’t exactly been shy about how much she dislikes the nation of Israel. It’s quite stunning to see coming a member of Congress, if you think about. But because Rashida is a Democrat, it’s fine. The mainstream media will give her a pass for hating Israel because she’s a woman and she’s Muslim. Obviously, that doesn’t make it right. Yet, having a “D” at the end of your name can do wonderful things for a person’s career. Here’s what she retweeted: https://twitter.com/Ostrov_A/status/1221089689328869376?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221089689328869376&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F Reactions: https://twitter.com/AviKaner/status/1221097453698592769?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221097453698592769&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F https://twitter.com/KyleWOrton/status/1221096740901748737?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1221096740901748737&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frashida-tlaib-tweets-fake-story-about-israelis-killing-palestinian-boy%2F During a speech in Miami, President Trump called out “the squad” in a way that not many people in the public eye ever have. And the way he did it is the exact reason he defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016, and, GOD-willing, why he’ll be re-elected this coming November. WATCH: TRUMP: “These people hate Israel — they hate Jewish people. I won’t name them. I won’t bring up the name of Omar, Tlaib, AOC — I won’t bring that name up. Won’t bring it up.” https://twitter.com/atrupar/status/1213232601441460231?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1213232601441460231&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fthehill.com%2Fhomenews%2Fadministration%2F476737-trump-lashes-out-at-squad-they-hate-jewish-people From The Hill: Trump sparked outrage on Capitol Hill in August when he said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu should block Tlaib and Omar from visiting the country. Israel later did so, despite earlier vows by officials to welcome any members of Congress to the country. […] Omar in particular has raised eyebrows with her comments about Israel, suggesting that powerful Jews inside and outside of Congress are pushing “allegiance to a foreign country” over their support for the state.
