Why are Lib-tards are still obsessing over Trump's tax returns?

The people who have business seeing anyone's tax returns is the tax payer, the tax preparer and the person at the IRS who makes sure everything is squared away. And if those tax returns are fishy then it becomes the business of whoever at the IRS and law enforcement agency investigates those things. No one else has any business seeing those tax returns regardless of who that person is.

I truly have no idea just what these tax returns might show.

My concern, however, is that most of those who are driven very hard to make these returns public do not seem to be driven by a neutral sort of public spiritedness; rather, they seem to be animated by an almost phobic desire to "get" the former president.

And this, I think, is unhealthy for our republic.

I don't care about Trumps tax returns.

1. He's no longer President.
2. He made his money in the private sector.
3. If he's cheated on his taxes, I'm sure the IRS would/will go after him.

The tax returns I want to see is those of people who have worked in the public sector for 40 years, and are now worth millions of dollars. If the only job you've ever had has been as a senator or congress person and you have millions of dollars, I would very much like to know where that money came from.

From earlier this month...

Pelosi’s husband bets $11 million on Big Tech

Quote:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s husband purchased upwards of $11 million in major tech stocks in May and June that quickly earned him over $5 million in profit — making the moves as his wife’s chamber ostensibly works to pass a series of bills reining in Big Tech.

Paul Pelosi, a venture capitalist with a net worth valued at over $100 million, exercised 40 call options to acquire 4,000 shares of Alphabet, the parent company of Google, at a $1,200 strike price, according to a financial disclosure report signed by the House speaker last Friday.


Exercising a call option allows investors to buy a stock at a later date at a pre-determined price, which that individual speculated the value would be beforehand. Pelosi’s call options for Alphabet, valued at $1,200 a share, were set to expire the day he sold them, when the company was valued at $2,500 a share.

Paul Pelosi gained $4.8 million as an immediate result of the trade, though his returns have grown since the June 18 transaction to $5.3 million.

The disclosure report from Speaker Pelosi (D-Calif.) also revealed that her husband purchased 20 call options for Amazon at a strike price of $3,000 a share, as well as 50 call options for Apple for $100 a share, though he did not report exercising those trades.

Publishing Trump's tax returns is a new legal opinion prepared by a partisan hack Clinton holdover in Biden's weaponized DOJ.

Quote:
In a new legal opinion released Friday, the department concluded that the House Ways and Means Committee has invoked "sufficient" legislative reasons for access to the sensitive materials, including what the panel said were "serious concerns" about how the Internal Revenue Service is operating an audit program for presidents.

The ruling's author, acting Assistant Attorney General Dawn Johnsen, pointed out that the move amounts to a reversal of a 2019 memo by the same office at the Justice Department, which was then under the Trump administration.
Under the Biden administration sufficient reason to force release of Trump's tax returns to the Democrat controlled House for immediate leakage to media toadies is Orange man bad. Having failed to destroy Trump in 2 rigged impeachments, numerous Congressional inquisitions, FBI and DOJ sham investigations, and the special council witchhunt the political persecution to deny him the opportunity to run again continues.

Speaker Pelosi has already ordained the outcome of the House committee's so-called investigation.

Quote:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, however, cheered the Justice Department move.

The California Democrat called Trump's taxes an issue of "national security," adding, "The American people deserve to know the facts of his troubling conflicts of interest and undermining of our security and democracy as president."
Since Democrats are utterly convinced Trump's tax returns "prove" his guilt it will be their patriotic duty to leak selected bits to their media cronies to serve as in kind campaign contributions.

The OP doesn't state specifically if there is a limitation of Trump's tax returns to those years he was President so it wouldn't be surprising if it authorizes an open ended fishing expedition to Trump's returns.

It is an open fishing expedition. One that I oppose completely.

The sole purpose of the tax return is to collect taxes. Use should be limited to that purpose. It's possibly also unconstitutional since since the returns are being used as evidence for some undefined other purpose.

Judges are making law. Which is the job of Congress. Judges job is interpretive only.
