Trump asks why people are still talking about his taxes a day after protesters asked for his returns - WaPo. Maybe because 74 percent want to see Trump's tax returns?

I think that the new standard should be: no tax reform without release of his tax returns. Let's make this a thing. Contact your Congresspeople and let them know they shouldn't vote for any tax measure until we know how it will affect the President's bottom line.

Why bother the Republicans about this. They have already shown they are aiding and abetting President Doanld (hide his taxes) Trump's tax personal tax cover up.

Yea, I know why - never let the bastards rest.

Over one million Americans signed the WhiteHouse.gov petition for DJT to release his taxes. Nothing about it at all from the WH. Hmm

This begs the question, since President Obama started WhiteHouse.gov petition (I believe) after this how long before President Donald (Investigate the Protesters) Trump, orders it taken down and all signatories there on investigated shocked confused

It appears that even Republican legislators are being influenced. GOP senator calls on Trump to release his tax returns - the Hill.
Quote:
Oklahoma Sen. James Lankford (R) is joining calls for President Trump to release his tax returns, saying Trump should "keep his promise."

"[Trump] promised he would," Lankford said at a town hall Tuesday night in Claremore, Okla., when asked whether the president should share his tax returns, according to the Tulsa World.

"He should keep his promise," he added.

Calls for the president to release his tax returns were constant during the campaign and have picked up this week in light of Tax Day on Tuesday.

shirley you guys jest

Mr Trump has always maintained he will as soon as the audit is over. What you guys failed to realize is people like him are under audit every year. With a 1000 page return and probably carry-overs and look-backs, he will forever be under an audit.

I suspect his statement is equivalent to the statement, he is above the acceptable norm for presidential candidates or he is going to do whatever the frak he wants to and everyone else can GFT.

So despite what some believe is "pressure", Mr Trump will not bend to the will of liberals and other scum <snarky snort snort>

What about a Congressional subpoena? Legal scholars will immediately note the Constitutional complexity in the request. Unless the current (or perhaps future independent and objective) investigations find enough evidence for probable cause of specific tax related information to the Russian-Trump campaign confluence, probably won't happen.

But you guys know the old saw .... wish in one hand and etc etc

The pressure, if it comes, will be on legislators. When tax reform can't get done, it will drag the whole party down. Until the threat is existential, the Republicans will, in the main, provide cover. If they see THEIR seats in jeopardy, however, expect actions to be taken.
