Need some help here - looking for a good link about this tax shitstorm

Basically as follows:

1. How does someone get an 80 million dollar check cut without multiple levels of sign off?
2. How the hell does someone NOT get audited after claiming losses over multiple years

Either we have a severely broke system (seems to be a given) with no checks and balances or there were multiple people involved in the fraud and cover up. And it isn't just the tRump family (another given that they commit fraud)

Who was the genius who posted about letting the Barrett nomination play out?

After twenty four hours, that seems to be a great call.

Basically a shit show in the middle of a shit storm.

"Honorable Ms. Barrett, should a case on releasing tRumps returns get to the Supreme Court, will you commit to recusing yourself? Because anything else would obviously appear to be Quid Pro Quo." Now let's move on to any case where tRump or the RNC tries to contest the results of the current election...."

Check in for all the suckers and losers who paid more than tRump in taxes over the last decade

I'm in!

To add I just got a notification for a request for extra money due to some stock transactions. My accountant tells me it is just due to the Feds not taking my actual investment $ and only the sales $, so I won't owe anymore,....but damn, this is infuriating.

Comey, Rosenstein, Mueller, common thread

All Repubs, all gutless when it comes to performing required job skill, all initially given the benefit of the doubt by many Dems.

We need to immediately stop projecting our morals onto them. Until numerous Repubs prove it wrong, the default needs to be that ALL Repubs will put Party above Country.

IMO there are numerous reasons why they behave this way, but not our job to fix them AND the mess left in their collective wake. It is not our job to treat them with respect, in fact that provides them cover and is likely the largest reason why the behavior is repeated.

Every follow up question to tRump should be....

Why do you always default to being an asshole?

Let's not forget, the apple doesn't fall far.... or in this case the turd from the Shitstain


Donald Trump Jr. wrote that visiting the Arlington National Cemetery in 2017 made him think of his family's "sacrifices" in his new book, "Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us."
