Not to be rude but if you are a Democrat at this point in the race, you must be a glutton for pain and failure. I give the party credit for being tenacious, however, they are way past throwing everything and the kitchen sink.
The real head-scratcher is that not a single accusation Democrats have contrived has landed a victory. None. Statistically, this is amusing as one of two conclusions must be agreed upon; either Trump is a genius or Democrats are really, really, really bad at politics (heck, let’s agree to both!).
One such ‘bombshell’ Democrats promised would undue the President were his taxes.
The Red State commented:
Remember when The New York Times tried to stir up another Trump scandal by publishing a piece detailing how he supposedly avoided paying income taxes over the past 15 years? It seems like it was ages ago, doesn’t it?
But now, it appears that this smoking gun was shooting blanks. The faux furor over Trump paying only $750 in taxes in 2016 has all but disappeared from the airwaves as the corporate press attempts to use other stories to gin up outrage.
In fact, it appears that the attention might be shifting to the legality of leaking Trump’s tax documents to the Times. The Washington Times reported that “Republicans on Capitol Hill say the fact that The Times has what it claims to be Mr. Trump’s tax data means ‘there is a strong prospect that a felony crime was committed’ by someone who leaked the legally protected information.”
Swing and a miss!
This isn’t simply a bad plan gone bad. It’s a perfect example of the old adage, “play stupid games and you’ll get stupid prizes.”
House Republicans are calling for an investigation to identify the individual who provided the Times with the President’s tax information. Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), who heads the House Ways and Means Committee, which oversees the IRS said, “To ensure every American is protected against the illegal release of their tax returns for political reasons, I am calling for an investigation of the source and to prosecute if the law was broken.”
Keep up the good work Democrats!
