the legal right of a taxpayer to decrease the amount of what otherwise would be his taxes, or altogether avoid them, by means which the law permits, cannot be doubted

Has it always been common practice with law enforcement to investigate people in search of a crime?

I thought they investigated crimes in search of a perp.

Sounds like an assload of tyranny to me.

The funny thing is all this crap just makes Trump stronger,

no republican will be president in 2024 without Trumps support.

 It's going to great to see all the RINOs kiss his ass as it
gets closer to crunch time.

All intended to make sure that anyone who may be like Trump thinks deeply before running for office.  This is what will happen to anyone who challenges the status quo.

I’ve never seen a president so scrutinized in my life. That must mean that what he was doing for America was righteous.

Lavrentiy Beria, the most ruthless and longest-serving secret police chief in Joseph Stalin’s reign of terror in Russia and Eastern Europe, bragged that he could prove criminal conduct on anyone, even the innocent.

Beria targeted “the man” first, then proceeded to find or fabricate a crime. Beria’s modus operandi was to presume the man guilty, and fill in the blanks later.

In my mind we have to ask if trump is an asset or a liability to the conservative cause.  Although I may agree with a lot of his policies and actions, deep down I think that like most politicians in Washington he is a self obsessed narcissist.  Does he care about himself or the country?  Is he willing to sacrifice the future of our nation on the altar of his own ego?  If he splits the Republican Party so they can’t win an election for the next 8 years he is not doing us any favors.

If so, then they are actually doing us a favor by bringing him down.  Ironically it is like the NRA.  Everyone with eyes to see knows that lapierre has raped the organization for his own personal gain , but no one has been able to get rid of him.  If the government can do that for us then they are doing us a favor in the long run- short term pain for long term benefit.

Rich guy becomes president and even works for free, so we must scrutinize everything about his finances again - even after he's out of office - just in case we can find something wrong. Meanwhile, slimy politicians still in office and their family members become rich from dealings made while in that office and nobody gives a shit.

He didn’t take a paycheck for for years, but his family took in way more than those paychecks would have been by hosting all those events at his resorts.  Funneling millions of tax dollars to your family business is slimy, even if it isn’t currently illegal.

What I was thinking also. 90% of Congress would be in federal prison for life (100% of all dems).

The day Trump announces that he is no longer running in 2024 all this goes away and the dems line up for campaign donations again.

They will likely find all sorts of stuff to use against him. Do we expect that all his business dealings were squeaky clean? Any large business owner is going to look for as many legal ways as possible to save money in taxes and get the best deals they can on loans.

What business owner looks at the loan offer and says to the lender, hey, I know we are friends and all but I'd like to have that interest rate be a bit higher."

Even if it is all on the up and up, they will still be able to find things that "look suspicious" and create a pattern of behavior blah blah blah.

eta: in fact I don't even think they need to find anything at all. Now that they have the information they can just simply say they found lots of stuff totally illegal to create the perception in peoples minds that instantly confirms what they already thought would be true. No need to prove anything. I mean, that's what they have been doing this whole time anyway.

Since tax returns are no longer sacrosanct a politician's entire medical records should be made public as well.

I bet there are a good number of "legally prescribed" pharmacuetical drugs addicts (See Shanghai Joe and Fancy Pelosi) holding elected office.

Everybody talks about Trump's ego, but nobody acknowledges what he sacrificed to serve as president.  He wasn't making millions off of backdoor deals with China or lobbyists like most politicians.  I don't think he ever kept a single paycheck and he rarely took a vacation.  He's had his life inspected by every bureaucracy and intel agency in the government as has his family members.  The media literally fabricated lies and repeatedly ran them on prime time news.  Some mistakenly call it ego, I see it as an incredible will and fortitude to be attacked every day for four years to serve the American people, uphold the Constitution and try to make meaningful changes in American lives and businesses without giving up and having very few allies.  Personality aside, we would be blessed to ever have another POTUS like Trump and that is exactly why the swamp is still going after him and attempting to send a message to anyone else willing to challenge the swamp culture of corruption.

Talk about ego...take a look at the Republican Party.  Your elitist rulers willing to compromise your liberties for their pockets and continued power.  I think you're off base on where to point the blame.  Trump was far from perfect, but he was likely the least corrupt POTUS in my 50+years.  I can't say that about the majority of GOP members in Congress.  The Republican Party needs to be attacked and if necessary split or destroyed to removed the cancerous traitor that infest it.  Either conservatives eliminate the status quo party, or they leverage Trump's momentum and become a new party.  There are no other options other than to accept the slow decline into socialist slavery with the current GOP.

They're prescribed and filled by the doctor directly, so no one is the wiser.

The reality is they have seen his taxes and shared it within the IC since 2016 thanks to Brennan's working group of Strzok, the NSA, Treasury (IRS), CIA, etc.

While there isn't anything all that nefarious (they would have used it by now) the information can be spun in many different ways.  For instance, the leaked (by Feinstein, she had a cold) Senate testimony of Glenn Simpson shows he was adamant that Trump wasn't as rich as he stated he was.  OK....but it's clear that Simpson and the "open source" digging they did were planning on using that tidbit against Trump in some form.

Since that time both Congress and others such as the NY AG and NYC prosecutors have worked to get that information.  The SC denied access at one point during impeachment 1.0 and now has reversed course in an effort to support efforts outside of the fed .gov to silence Trump now that impeachment 2.0 is over.  This game is quite dangerous but no more dangerous than what we've seen over the last five years.
