The Longest Tax Audit in History: Trump log #19

The amount of lying and lack of transparency of the President is making this very incompetent administration seem a lot worse than they actually are ... if that is possible. If there is nothing wrong with his tax returns, then he should release them. Our only assumption, we can make without seeing them is that he has something to hide.  We will only assume the worse. What assumptions will we make? Massive cash flow from Russian interests, lack of charitable giving, Congressmen being bought, etc. I am guessing the biggest concern that this egomaniac has is that we'll all find out how bad and unethical of a business man he really is. This is the assumption I will go with until I hear otherwise.

Trump log for week of 3/21/17:

3/16/17 - A few pages of Trump's 2005 tax returns have been obtained and examined on national television. No big surprises on it.  The bulk of his taxes were due to the alternative minimum tax which, surprisingly, is one of the taxes that he wants to abolish. (Source: New York Times)
