  • it is 100% ILLEGAL for the demoncraps and repuklitards to back this. it is called a "fishing expedition". "I wonder if someone broke the law….give me all their info so I can find a crime.." is STALINIST/MAOIST, not an American value. America was founded with respect to the Blackstone calculation. You don't know what that is. Look it up. Today is not "tha forth"! Happy INDEPENDENCE DAY!

  • Trump and his family are making millions of dollars of taxpayers money as well getting "favour" money from Dictatorships around the world.

  • Terry VanderSchaaf says:

    Do you guys fall asleep over there at msnbc here is Maddow with Trumps 2015 taxes https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0eB-xjDMGdQ

  • MrMavrick8888 says:

    If you think this matters to us trump voters your wrong!!! In the beginning I was like ok let’s see them, but now the dems are so rabid that if trump evaded taxes his entire life me and everyone I know will HAPPILY vote trump!!! WE DONT CARE!!! You are making yourselves look desperate and unhinged!!

  • Richard Smart says:

    Also, silly wittle Steve is Jewish. So, like Benjamin Aaron Shitpiro, WHY IS "HE" ON THE SAME SIDE AS THE WINDOW-LICKING AMOEBAS WHO ENJOY NOTHING MORE THAN MARCHING, CARRYING TORCHES WHILE CHANTING "THE JEWS WILL NOT REPLACE US"?

  • What the redacted Mueller report says: 1. trump could not have won the WH because trump ran illegally. 2. trump criminally obstructed justice 12 times, here is the proof of it. 3. Since trump ran illegally, then exploited help from Russians, and obstructed justice, it is up to Congress to impeach trump.

  • Karen Jenkins says:

    Seriously before you even think about doing an exploratory look into candidacy for President it should be mandatory to pass a White House FBI test. If you can't get a pass then you can't be a candidate. No one needs to know if you failed, but everyone can be rest assured that the person they are considering a vote for is not corrupt.

  • Waggish Sagacity says:

    Don't you get the sense in the pit of your stomach that Trump had hired an attorney (an actual ace –unlike the ones he retains now) who wrote him a detailed memo –before he was inaugurated –telling him how to walk to the very edge of the law? I mean, Trump is not THAT smart to figure all this by himself. Of course, all conversations between them are almost absolutely privileged, so, alas, we don't know who the Ace is and what his/her advice was. You can be certain that taxes were front & center on the agenda.
    Bravo to David Corn for his DAILY tweets on the release of Trump's taxes.

  • This is rediculous. Speaker Pelosi, walk over to the IRS and get his tax returns. Or get them another way or through a friendly source. Give me a break. Then, indict Mnuchin.

  • Only in the USA can a "rich" ORANGE IMBECILE get away with this KRAP!!!! I never realized our government was so CORRUPT!!!! The ORANGE POS exposed it and made it WORSE!!!!

  • Lol this will go no where just like all the other attempts the evil dems tried I said evil because not all Democrats are bad I know of many that want to vote for Trump in 2020 far more then I knew in 2016.

  • To ALL Americans, I was one of many that once commented and was laughed at for saying AMERICAN WORKERS DO NOT HAVE TO PAY TAXES unless YOU WERE A CORPORATION… in other words a BUSINESS of some sort! X Governments like the Bushes, The Clintons and Obama had always told its citizens they HAD TO PAY TAX… Well they've just shot themselves in the foot because they've JUST ANNOUNCED when trying to gain information on Trump this statement:

    "In refusing to comply with the statute, Defendants have mounted an extraordinary attack on the authority of Congress to obtain information needed to conduct oversight of Treasury, the IRS, and the tax laws on behalf of the American people WHO PARTICIPATE IN THE NATION'S VOLUNTARY TAX SYSTEM," the complaint reads.

    So Aaron Russo was right all along! And here's more proof which is what I shared along with other months ago! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AcdNCz_7Qo0
    Folks, don't let them CON you any more! There is NO LAW and NEVER has been a LAW to FORCE YOU TO PAY TAX if you are just a worker and do not own your own business… They've been scamming you for decades, DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH… Just in case you can't be arsed, I've included these link to help you WAKE UP!

  • Cassandra Richardson says:

    The Democrats have gone Looney tune, they stay stuck in the pass….That's personal, so stop being nosey, ya'll people change laws as you go….The Democrats hate loosing….They are so negative….It's their way, or no way crazy.

  • Them that don't fallow the law,made by congress by the people for the people must be called out,Trump show your Tax to the American people,

  • It's Kamala Harris' fault that Steve Mnuchin is Sec. of Treasury, and not an inmate in a California State prison.

  • Charlie Cross says:

    I wouldn't be surprised if Donnie small hands has a negative net worth and he's lying about being a millionaire let alone a billionaire

  • Andrea Hennessy says:

    Watch out, Steve Mnuchin. You are becoming the new Michael Cohen. Where does Trump FIND these douchbags??

  • TRUMP DOES AS TRUMP PLEASES ! He doesn't believe in the rule of Law , his base support him no matter what ! this is AMERICA Today in a nut shell !

  • Trump is not held accountable for his lies and Corruption. And Mitch McConnell will never let it happen. Why would Mitch help the United States American people when he is making billions off of Trumps changes for the country.

  • So Putin is blackmailing the Congress and the Senate in his older emails it is threatening to go public with everything? What a government

  • dave etcetera says:

    But if the White House doesnt comply with ANYTHING, the only resort is impeaching officials and the GOP Senate won't go along.

  • Donald Trump says:

    Democrats fought to keep slaves. A Republican President signed The Emancipation Proclamation.
    Oh and the Nazis were Socialist.

  • Strategy- Trump can not lose this battle or he goes to Prison.He will pull the Biggest move to stop this.Actually He will pull#3, if nec.#2, and all ouy #3.We know this now.We have him, now we do what noone is expecting.We go on offense.We take the Ball. We turn hard and decisively.Start the Impeachment.Just do the Vote, their is nothing to inquire about

  • That is a defensive move, trying to be sure.We can not be sure, but We can Win.Trump has to block the tax release and top the Mueller hearing.We know his strategy, now.We have seen Exactly how he does it.He will go Gigantic! His entire existence is on the line.We slam him Hard, like Sledge hammer into his teeth.Start the Impeachment, Right Now

  • To all you supporters of Trump,(Trump said I will give my taxes if am elected)so what is your hero hiding "where's his taxes"

  • Dennis Harrell says:

    The far right spin on this is that they claim to have found a phrase somewhere to the effect that the request of a tax return must relate to a valid investigation, using Trump's lie that all investigations into his crimes are invalid, based on lies and attempts to "get the president".

  • Gardian Angel_B4J says:

    Arrest Mnuchin and put him in Lewisburg Penitentiary for about 2 weeks. Once his "cohorts" in crime find out where he is….they will gladly turn over Trump's Tax records. BTW…..the best case scenario for poor steve mnuchin would need to use Preparation H for the next 10-20 years. Worst case……he would be in the hospital for 6-12 month or pushing up daisies. Lewisburg is not a nice prison to be put in. He broke the law protecting Trump which allows him to be in office longer and doing more damage to America….and Lewisburg would be a fitting place for him to spend 2 weeks in. IMHO.

  • Instead of "sweating" out a contempt of Congress citation, Mnuchin was enjoying a state dinner with the Queen of England as part of trump's entourage. I guess WE "get" to pay for THAT, too!

  • Thomas Jones says:

    The legal bombs are about to start dropping on FISA abusers in the Obama admin. That's what's going on. Try and select and obfuscate all you want.

  • Michael Brown says:

    F#ck his money! That's what's wrong with the world today. People selling out other people for cash… F#ck material!

  • Its about transparency, why are (R)'s so against transparency?
    If all is as Trump says it will embarrass the Dems!
    Wouldn't the (R)'s love to embarrass the Democratic party?

  • Trump really does want to release his taxes. He really does, believe me. It's very important to him that everyone knows he is the richest man in the galaxy and he would just love to embarrass the democrats after they've gone through all that trouble to find that he has $900 Billion and is as clean as a whistle. But he just doesn't feel like doing it right now. OK? Go away.

  • ClimateMarcher JohnJ says:

    All this "breaking news" and you still haven't broke him. Something is missing from mainstream media's reporting and that's the truth of people hitting the streets to oust this regime. They will NEVER report that because it means people might temporarily suspend their incessant shopping for the feel good fix. Corporate advertisers can't have that! Not on your life, our children's lives, or even their own kids lives. Don't expect anything useful out of corporate media.

  • Reginald Allen says:

    Congress does not need the courts! Congress has OVERSIGHT authority over the Executive Branch AND the Judicial Branch of govt! Subpoena… Contempt of Congress, Maximum Fines and Jail until Mnuchin and Rettig comply with the Law! Congressman Neal is allowing Congress' authority to be watered down to Congressional Begging! Why is he STALLING and wasting Taxpayers money with the courts??!!

  • Reginald Allen says:

    Ari always cut off interviewees when they are making important statements/comments! I hate watching him! No more of this conversational JERK!!!

  • The problem with lying about everything is that people wont be able to tell what you're actually being truthful about

  • Leonard MacAulay says:

    To all these idiots asking for releasing private information have their tax returns ready for public scrutiny.

  • NEW YORK JUST NOW passed a NEW law, that allows any authorized Representatives access to…..STATE TAXES from New York State -COME AND GET EM!!

  • Richard Alexander says:

    Dotard tRump is terrified for his base to see what a loser he is, in debt, owing hundreds of millions to foreign criminals.

  • Sherri Greeydelinarez says:

    Trump "Promised the American People during the Campaign to Show his Taxes! After he won he sent Kelly Ann out, when asked, She said: He's President' Now, He Doesn't have ,too! His Frist Big Lie to the American People! He Never Plan too. He Feels Above the Law, so does Kelly Ann and his People!!! Hold him Accountable!!! Lying to the American People is Grounds for " Impeachment!"

  • William Smart says:

    I don't know why YouTube keep sending me all this propaganda from MSNBC it's nothing but lies against our country and its citizens they're not for the Patriots in the American citizen

  • Liar, liar, pants fire…childish? Absolutely! But, what is not childish is that a very small group of people …like Mnuchin and others breaking our laws, are creating a situation that is very DIRE! They are letting a person elected into power, get away with constant lies that are removing our country from the title of the world’s biggest and best democracy…….with LIES AND MORE LIES,!
