Donald Trump rejects Mitt Romney's ironic tax attack
CNN ^ | February 24, 2016 | Stephen Collinson, Jeremy Diamond and Hasan Khan

Posted on 02/24/2016 7:03:02 PM PST by EveningStar

Donald Trump is leaving the door open to not releasing his tax returns, just hours after Mitt Romney warned Wednesday that the billionaire's tax documents could contain a "bombshell."

The GOP front-runner said in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper that he will "make a determination over the next couple of months" as to whether he will release his tax returns...

It was also an attack steeped in irony, since Romney was on the receiving end of similar claims by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, when Democrats eviscerated him over his fortune and business record during the 2012 campaign. Reid zeroed in on his taxes, saying he hadn't paid any in a decade without offering any evidence to support the claim...

Mitt is pissed because he was going to run again until Jeb Bush went to him & told him he had secured commitments from most of Romney’s major donors. Now that Jeb’s campaign has folded, Mitt is regretting that he dropped out, so he’s playing the Harry Reid game.

I just heard Trump say on the news that he gets audited by the IRS every year.

It’s highly unlikely that Romney knows more about Trump’s taxs than the IRS does.

“Mittens” is just jealous because he’s such a LOSER!!!

First of all Romney, your a loser, and didn’t have your ‘flashlight’ out in the ‘grove of trees’ to find your ‘golden tax return’ so how would you know what a tax return is?

Shut your mouth ‘Moroni Mitt’ and go to hell!!!

Is this the next volley from the “Destroy Trump” GOP?

What ever the catalyst it destroys what small amount of standing Mitt might have still had among honest people.

It is disappointing to say the least.

The GOPe seems to think that having unpopular, loser Republicans attack Trump will convince the a riled up populace to just settle down and settle for the way it’s always been.

It’s fun to see those who claimed that they were going to sit out the last election rather than vote for Mitt now praising his efforts.

Nothing requires anyone to release their tax returns. This is simply the GOPe, MSM and demturds going on a fishing expedition.

Trump should tell the GOPe, MSM and demturds that he will release all his records, but only:

1. After Shillary releases all her emails, including all her emails with the Clinton Foundation while Secretary of State, transcripts of Goldman Sucks speeches, and

2. After Obama releases all his records (financial, applications and otherwise) related to his passports, college education and law license.

Is there anyone who has thought about it that believes that Donald Trump owes back taxes?

I suspect that obummer had a copy of an IRS report on Trump’s tax status on his desk six months ago.

Obummer has made it plain that he despises Trump He would put the IRS after him if there were any grounds for doing so.
