Why is Judicial Watch helping Trump hide HIS tax returns?

No real Americans should debate this one. The U.S. Constitution tells us exactly what the qualifications are to be President. Releasing your taxes is NOT one of them. For a state to make up a new standard is absurd.

Also, for a hardcore "Blue" state to dictate to the Republican Party their primary rules is ridiculous.

It is massive voter disenfranchisement on a scale we have never seen. Without Trump on the ballot, and likely no statewide Republican candidates, the motive to vote for state and local initiatives for millions of Californians is greatly reduced. Only an asshole would support this and the Democrats should be ashamed, but them not being so tells everyone all we need to know about how Authoritarian Democrats become when they seize total power.

In short, this is a poorly thought dick move.

Trump can comply just like other candidates will.

Trump is the first president in decades who hasn't voluntarily released his tax returns. He has said he won't release his returns while under audit, but the IRS has said that audits don't prohibit people from releasing their own tax information.

Voters sue California over tax return law targeting Trump

Again, no one in the USA is under audit 24/7/365.
:cool:
It has only been done since Nixon. So more presidents did not do than those that have. Their is no constitutional law for it

It isn’t a question of what he “can” do but instead a question of what a state can force him to do as a requirement. Let’s say that California decides that every candidate must submit a picture of their ass as requirement. The fact that they can’t do that is because there are limitations to what they can require. Since the tax returns are Trump’s private property, then from a legal standpoint they would be subjecting him to a search. You may want to find an excuse to harass a candidate you don’t care for but that isn’t how it works in America. If you want your opinion to matter, then you will need to go to law school and find a way to become a member if the SCOTUS because it is going to come down to what they say.
