Ah Lou, you did not disappoint. As I predicted, you went straight for discrediting anything — like Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting — that clashes with your “reality.” I guess you have to do that when you’re living in a right wing fantasyland.

Everything you said is wrong. The IRS is not the final arbiter of anything: it is a subordinate agency working for the Treasury, and by extension the President, who ordered Mnuchin not to release his tax returns. On that count, the tax code explicitly states that the IRS “shall furnish” tax returns to Congress upon request.

Seems to me your only motive here is to defend Trump no matter what, and even in defiance of the facts. Somehow I doubt you’d be so generous toward Barack Obama if he were hiding his tax returns, or had a well-documented history of fraud, or was accused of any of these kind of things….except there was never even a whiff of scandal around him.
