Another installment on #TrumpTaxes from the NYT
Haven't read it yet but here it is:
2-"IT WAS SPRINGTIME at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club, and the favor-seekers were swarming.
3-"In a gold-adorned ballroom filled with Republican donors, an Indian-born industrialist from Illinois pressed Mr. Trump to tweet about easing immigration rules for highly skilled workers and their children.

Thread zur Einordnung des neuesten #NYTimes Artikel zu #Trump|s Steuertricks aus deutscher Sicht und für Nicht-Steuerrechtler nach erster Durchsicht. 👇🏻 1/X
Die #NYTimes hatte in dem Erstartikel bereits Folgeartikel angekündigt. Eines wird achon jetzt klar:

Eine gründliche Berriebsprüfung durch die Steuerbehörde (#IRS) wäre - wie es ohnehin zu vermuten war - für Trump finanziell und strafrechtlich extrem kritisch. 2/X
Lange Story der #NyTimes mit bemerkenswert gut recherchierten Zusammenhängen. Was im Wesentlichen GEMÄSS DEM ARTIKEL passiert ist, ist folgendes:

Trump und sein langjähriger Buddy Mr. Ruffin haben zusammen ein Hotel in Las Vegas

NYT says they received “tax return data” from a source that was legally entitled to have it. So probably not actual tax returns and at least unethical but likely illegal to release.

The article is obviously timed as part of a wider campaign to have these “bombshells” every week.
So far, these “bombshells” have all been duds.
I believe @ProjectLincoln is a major player in this orchestrated media assault against @realDonaldTrump

If that turns out to be the case, none of the RINO turncoats should have any role whatsoever in the future of the @GOP
I would wager that some of the “tax return data” for the current @nytimes article about the #TrumpTaxReturns is recycled from a 2016 article and that the new data is likely from the SAME SOURCE.…

Pelosi sent a ltr to Dem Caucus yesterday telling them to focus on flipping House STATE delegations in case neither Trump nor Biden win the EC majority
BC the election then goes to the winner of the majority of House delegations
The letter:…
2-"[Trump] was suggesting that if GOP leaders can hold up the final election results so that Joe Biden doesn’t get 270 electoral votes certified, the 12th Amendment would require the House to decide the presidential contest. But instead of giving every Member of Congress a vote,
3-"the 12th Amendment gives each state one vote, which is determined by a vote of the state’s delegation. In other words, how many state delegations the Democrats win in this upcoming election could determine who our next President is.

Hillary warned us:

—He’s not as rich as he says
—He’s not as charitable as he claims
—He owes $650M to Wall St &Foreign Banks
—He doesn’t want you to know he doesn’t pay income taxes
—He has multiple conflicts of interests


His own fixer/attorney Cohen testified that Trump:

🔹Inflated his assets to get loans
🔹Deflated his assets to avoid paying taxes
🔹Used public funds/taxpayer dollars for private businesses

Reminder: In 2018 the NYT uncovered that Trump and his family committed “instances of outright fraud” and had defrauded the US Govt out of $500 Million in taxes.

This alone should’ve been enough to remove a corrupt POTUS*.

What I can get for $750:

💸 a tank of gas for 10 weeks straight
💸 2 vials of insulin
💸 2 #covid19 tests
💸enough baby formula to feed an infant for 4-6 months
💸187 Big Macs
💸clothes for a child for 1 year
💸1 year of #TrumpTaxes
💸Ohhhh, I almost forgot! With $750, I could buy ~100 brand new N95s for my friends & colleagues. Enough to protect my co-workers in my ED for, oh, a day. 😷🤦🏻‍♀️ #TrumpTaxes
What would YOU buy?

I’m not even sure why #TrumpTaxes is such a “thing”

It’s highly doubtful (in the realm of impossible) that Trump only paid $750 in taxes (a claim his attorneys have already stated is categorically false).

The rest of The NY Times article dives into massive tax write-offs.
News Flash: That is what smart people do... they write off as much as is legally possible to offset legitimate losses from business ventures.

Is this seriously a shock to anyone? This is what tax attorneys and decent CPA’s get paid to do. So this is a surprise to people? 😂
PS- Anyone who is on social media preaching that “Trump is a tax dodger” or “Trump should have paid more” is taking virtue signaling to a whole new level.

Put your money where your mouth is folks.

I will provide you with a mailing address, and send me 20% of your paycheck.

I’m not interest in the details of how Trump used legal tools provided by the system to pay less taxes. In my book, that makes him smart.

But I am interested in seeing all Biden’s medical records & results of an independent drug & cognitive test.
The @TeamTrump & @realDonaldTrump should seriously consider nytimes needs to be seriously sued!

It’s amazing how they lie a few days before the debate but are not held accountable.

The real revelation isn’t that 45 pays minimal taxes, it’s the incredible debt he is facing in the next 4 years.

>$400 million dollars worth

Explain to me how this doesn’t make him & every family member of his a national security liability?

Say Putin or the Saudi royalty offer him an “interest free loan” to advance their influence & power over America’s interest. How does he say no? Why does anyone believe he would?

It’s even worse... this thread from a Forbes writer details $1.1 Billion in debt 🤯

1/9 The beautiful irony of the #TrumpTaxReturns coming out NOW is that Trump's never-ending appeals pushed the release date back until he gave HIMSELF an early October surprise.

#CountBankruptula was surely hoping to keep them hidden until after the election.

#TrumpTaxes Image
2/9 Now we know that since 2000 there are TEN years when Trump didn't pay anything in taxes.

In all Trump paid no federal income taxes in 11 of 18 years the New York Times' reporters examined…
3/9 Now we know that Trump only paid $750 his first 2 terms while hard-working Americans paid their dues & struggled to make ends meet.

Now we know that he practiced wide-scale tax fraud based on claims of heavy losses, & he probably WAS losing heavily...…

BLOCKBUSTER: The NYT obtained Donald Trump’s tax information extending over more than two decades, revealing struggling properties, vast write-offs, an audit battle and hundreds of millions in debt coming due.
Donald J. Trump paid $750 in federal income taxes the year he won the presidency. In his first year in the White House, he paid another $750.

He had paid no income taxes at all in 10 of the previous 15 years — largely because he reported losing much more money than he made. 2/4
The Guardian and others are reporting on the story, but don’t include some of the important details in the NYT’s breaking story--like the financing of Trump’s MIss Universe Pageant in Moscow in 2013, which was financed in part by the Agalarovs (who are close to Putin). 3/4

In dem Jahr, in dem er die Wahl gewonnen hat, hat Trump 750 (!!!!) Dollar Einkommenssteuern gezahlt. In 10 der 15 Jahre davor nichts. Fehlen ein bisschen die Worte. #TrumpTaxes #TaxReturns
Siebenhundertfünfzig. Im JAHR ALS ER PRÄSIDENT WURDE.
Kann nicht mehr.
Wann kommen die ersten Hot Takes? Ist nur ein Zeichen dafür wie super savy und schlau er ist, dass er nix zahlt?

Fucking FINALLY.

And yeah, he's damn near a billion-with-a-B dollars in debt, much of that with #DeutscheBank. And considering what we know about them (cf. #FinCENFiles)?

Looks pretty much EXACTLY like we told you it would, 5 years ago, when some of you called folks hyperbolic.
That being said, by all rights #TrumpTaxReturns #trumpTaxes, #FinCENFiles, and #PanamaPapers should all be trending in concert, right now.
There's a debate Tuesday.

If this #TrumpTaxReturns content isn't included in at least 1/3 of Biden's answers i just don't even know anymore.

Supreme Court holds that Trump is NOT "absolutely immune from state criminal subpoenas" and finds that Cy Vance need not show a "heightened standard of need"

Case now sent back to lower court where Trump can essentially come up with new arguments. This process will run the clock Image
SCOTUS holds Trump's 'distraction' argument "runs up against the 200 years of precedent establishing that Presidents, and their official communications, are subject to judicial process."
Justice Alito expresses concern that a criminal prosecution would be very distracting for Trump.

Interesting to see him make the giant leap from an investigative subpoena to criminal prosecution. Has Alito seen the financial records? Image

If you're struggling to follow the complex #TrumpTaxes case the Supreme Court just ruled on, I made this with @Fahrenthold when the hearing began in May.

SCOTUS just ruled the NY prosecutor *can* see Trump's financial records

I know these cases are nuanced and we likely won’t see #TrumpTaxes before the election, but I am so happy SCOTUS unmistakably rejected Trump’s dictatorial argument of absolute immunity.
This was bigger than #TrumpTaxes.

The President is not immune to criminal investigation. Huge precedent.

The 5 Conservatives on SCOTUS could’ve ruled that POTUS had absolute immunity, and broke our democracy, but they didn’t. Roberts, Gorsuch, & Kavanaugh ruled with liberals.
If this ruling came before impeachment, Trump’s lawyers would’ve had to scrap their entire defense.

I know people are focused on #TrumpTaxes but the big picture is encouraging for our democracy. This precedent ensures future presidents can’t make the same arguments of immunity.

1/ **Below quotes by Alexander Hamilton, unless indicated otherwise.
“A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one.”
2/ “…When a man unprincipled in private life desperate in his fortune, bold in his temper…—despotic in his ordinary demeanour—known to have scoffed in private at the principles of liberty—when such a man is seen to mount the hobby horse of popularity…
3/ …—to join in the cry of danger to liberty—to take every opportunity of embarrassing the General Government & bringing it under suspicion—to flatter and fall in with all the non sense of the zealots of the day…
