    Trump took $70,000 in tax deductions for "hairstyling for television". That should go over well in blue collar working class America.

    If Trump didn't pay any money or very little in taxes, that would please most Americans who already believe they're paying too much tax now, will Trump's reported taxes/faux earnings hurt him? probably not.

    Pandemic - Distraction. The horrible business man is failing again and it's causing Americans to die at an unacceptable rate. Stay focused on the big picture.

    Trump reminds me of the lion in "The Wizard of Oz"

    Trump:

    "Only losers get captured, I like those who don't get capture" .... Cheers

    "Only losers die for their country" ... Cheers!

    "Only losers pay taxes, and I am no loser" ...Cheers!

    Backstage after a Trump rally:

    "Thank god I don't have to shake their hands anymore, what a bunch losers and they all smell pretty bad too. I bet not single one has taken a shower in over a month"

    A former federal prosecutor during the Watergate proceedings that brought down President Richard Nixon says new tax revelations about President Donald Trump could ultimately send him to prison.

    “No question about it,” Nick Akerman said Monday on CNN. “And his daughter could go to jail, too.

    “Tax evasion is a five-year felony,” said Akerman, who was an assistant special Watergate prosecutor investigated Nixon’s taxes. “It’s a pretty serious crime, and the more money that’s stolen, the longer you go to jail for.”

    “The only thing that’s saving him at this point is the Department of Justice’s guideline that says you can’t indict a sitting president,” Akerman said. “Once he’s no longer a sitting president, he is subject to being indicted.”

    He added that “any decent prosecutor” could make a “pretty viable” case:

    Weismann (who worked for Mueller) said on an interview that Trump did everything he could to obstruct the Mueller investigation, Mueller and his team demanded Trump's financial records from Deutsche bank, but they refused to provide these because of constant Trump pressure. During any such investigation certainly an "accused" is not allowed to interfere, according to the laws here. So only for that alone Trump should be fined. But Mueller made the mistake not to pursue this any further and stopped with investigating the money trail. Big mistake!

    Find a penny pick it up. All day long you'll have - More money than Donald Trump paid in Federal income taxes 10 of the last 15 years.

    That was a humorous meme on Social media under the heading Editorial cartoons.

    After months of delays, President Trump’s son Eric was questioned under oath on Monday as part of a civil investigation by New York’s attorney general into whether the Trump family’s real estate company committed fraud.

    The attorney general’s investigation is focused on whether the Trump Organization inflated its assets to get bank loans and tax benefits.

    In August, Ms. James, saying the company had tried to stall the inquiry, asked a judge to order Eric Trump, an executive vice president at the Trump Organization who runs its day-to-day operations, to answer questions under oath and to order the company to turn over documents.

    Ms. James, a Democrat, sought the order after Mr. Trump pulled out of an interview with her office in July, and after the company said that it and its lawyers would not comply with seven subpoenas.

    Last year, Ms. James reached a settlement with the president under which he admitted misusing money from a personal foundation to promote his campaign and pay off business debt.

    A quick note from Heather:

    Other revelations today included news from the continuing investigation by the New York Times into Trump’s tax records. It turns out that, for all Trump’s attempts to smear Biden by claiming he is too close to China, Trump himself has a bank account in the country which he did not list on his public financial disclosures because it is held under a corporate name. The account paid $188,561 in taxes in China from 2013 to 2015. Biden’s income taxes, which-- unlike the president-- he released, show neither business dealings nor income from China.
