Given What a Judge Did to Donald Trump Today, We Need His Tax Returns

A judge has decided that the Trump University lawsuit will go to trial. This is bad news for Trump as it gives media fodder to the Democrats. The storyline is easy enough — Donald Trump took advantage of the little guy. The lawsuit involves fraud claims that will play right into the Democrats’ hands.

But the trial is also, through the discovery process, going to reveal things about Trump’s operations and business practices.

That makes it even more necessary for Donald Trump to release his tax returns now.

One way or another those returns are going to get out. The Republican Party’s voters and delegates have a right to see what landmines could be lurking there before handing Trump the nomination. The party would already have to deal with the Trump University law suit.

Democrats and the press will make Trump’s tax returns a central issue of a general election campaign, just like they did with Mitt Romney. They will wonder what Donald Trump is hiding. And they will have a good point.

What exactly is Donald Trump hiding? Why has the IRS audited Trump so regularly going back to the Bush Administration?

The party that might make him its nominee for President should see Donald Trump’s tax returns.
