2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney said Wednesday on Fox News there is good reason to believe there is a "bombshell" to be found in Donald Trump's back taxes.
Asked by host Neil Cavuto why he hadn't officially backed a Republican for the 2016 nomination, Romney said he would like to see the back taxes from several of the candidates. Taxes were a sore spot for Romney in 2012, with then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) publicly accusing him of not even paying them.
"This will give us a real sense of whether these people are on the up and up and whether they've been telling us things about themselves that are true or not," Romney said. "Frankly, I think we have good reason to believe that there's a bombshell in Donald Trump's taxes."
"What do you mean?" Cavuto asked.
"I think there's something there," Romney said. "Either he's not anywhere near as wealthy as he says he is or he hasn't been paying the kind of taxes we would expect him to pay, or perhaps he hasn't been giving money to the vets or to the disabled like he's been telling us he's been doing, and the reason that I think there's a bombshell in there is because every time he's asked about his taxes he dodges and delays and says, well, we're working on it."
Romney said voters have a right to see the tax returns from the nominees before making their choice. Later, Cavuto asked if by using the word "bombshell," Romney was truly questioning whether Trump had been truthful about helping veterans.
"It's very possible," he said. "You know, Donald Trump has said he's the best in the country for the disabled veterans and for the disabled generally. Well, if his taxes show that he hasn't made any contributions to the disabled veterans, or to the disabled generally, that would be a big issue. I'm not saying that's the case. I have no evidence of that, but I'm just saying there are things that could be issues, and when people decide they don't want to give you their taxes, it's usually because there's something they don't want you to see."

Romney is now both a looser and an accountant
Willard Romney can GTH.
I saw his sorry appearance on Cavuto’s.
Romney is a snitty, jealous girl.
Now that they believe Cruz is out of the way they can bring out the big guns.
So Milt is pulling a “Harry Reid” on Don Trump?
having been victimized by that exact same bullsh_t, you would think he would know better than to launch crap like that.
Go away mitt
He’s a loser just like his daddy.
They don’t call him Mitt-Witt for nothing.
It’s easy to make attack statements without info. Did he invest in Whitewater?
Kiss Rubio ass Mitt.
Cmon, you know you want to ..
That was my first reaction, too. Then I thought, "He saw how effective it was, so he's using it now. But, why? Can he be so much in the bag for Rubio? Or is it his last little curtain call in the limelight?"
Wow what a dirt bag Romney is, after he was victim to this same type of comment.
The left screwed Romney on his tax info, now Romney is playing the dem-game on Trump?
Mittens took the time to climb off his high horse to interject an unaffordable piece of his mind?
I figured he’d still be right here ...
I watched this with mouth open. Knowing that the establishment would throw the sink but this was really disgusting. I am more emboldened that we must break many eggs in this process. G’bye Mitt.
Why is a repub doing this to Trump and not Hillary??
My guess is Trump will make them beg for it first . . . then schlong ‘em with it.
