The Jan 6 committee Nazis released 6 years of Trump’s tax returns. It was non-stop on Twitter for the last two days. Today it’s virtually gone. Why? For a few reasons.

1. No one really cares

2. Releasing the tax returns of a private citizen is a very bad precedent. Even some democrats are concerned.

3. Trump’s returns show something other than what was intended

4. The release shows just how petty, vindictive and stupid the Jan 6 committee are.

A quick search this morning finds this

Let’s look at this grand idiocy. Here are some headlines

NBC

Trump’s tax returns released by House committee show he paid little in taxes

BBC

Trump’s tax returns reveal president’s foreign bank accounts

The Guardian

Trump tax returns show China bank account as six years of records released

From the BBC article

What Donald Trump reported on his taxes

What does this show?

HE LOST MONEY RUNNING FOR AND BEING PRESIDENT. 

In contrast, Nancy Pelosi has used her office to acquire a vast fortune in incredibly coincidental stock trades

“In 2007, Visa worried the new Democrat Congress would target their swipe fees, costing them billions. So they hired a team of lobbyists who descended on Pelosi,” Watters added. “Visa’s CEO personally met with her. She got donations from them. One of his advisers left and became a visa lobbyist himself.”

“Suddenly, Paul Pelosi got a phone call from his broker. He was in luck,” Watters continued. “Paul was offered a prescreened invite to get in early on Visa’s $18 billion IPO. Did Nancy and her husband hesitate? No, they bought between $1 million and $5 million worth of Visa stock. But it gets better. While Pelosi was speaker, bills that would have hurt Visa’s stock price were blocked in the House. Visa shares going up over 200 percent during the time, making the Pelosi’s a fortune on paper.”

Does anyone in the legacy media care? No. They make a big deal out of Trump losing money. His taxes were low because he lost money.

And China? Trump wasn’t doing himself any favors when it came to China. Trump created the China Initiative, which was meant to curb the theft of intellectual property by the Chinese.

Chinese hackers took trillions in intellectual property from about 30 multinational companies

  Biden killed it.

Trump put tariffs on Chinese goods to incentivize buying US. Biden killed that too. Trump’s SALT limitation hurt himself.

Unlike Biden, unlike Pelosi, unlike most of Congress, Trump put the country first.

Then there is the issue of releasing the tax returns of a private citizen.

Releasing Trump’s tax returns will hurt democrats more than it did Trump. It troubles at least one democrat. and could open a Pandora’s box. Even Geraldo is bothered.

That’s what this was always all about. Embarrassment. Spite. Dirty him up. Cheap shots. Try to stop him from ever being President again. It had nothing to do with anything else. Ten million dollars for breathless hyperbole.

Newsweek:

Trump’s Tax Returns Won’t Be the Nail in His Political Coffin

Correct. It may not only not be Trump’s epitaph but could end up being a campaign promotion as people come to understand what the returns really show. And that is why it is disappearing so quickly.
