WikiLeaks Says It Will Locate And Release Trump’s Tax Returns

Ever since he announced his candidacy back in 2015, Donald Trump has repeatedly vowed to release his income tax returns to the public just as soon as the IRS completes an audit of his finances.

But on Sunday, senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said there would be no release of tax information, telling ABC News:

“The White House response is that he’s not going to release his tax returns.

“We litigated this all through the election. People didn’t care. They voted for him, and let me make this very clear: Most Americans … are very focused on what their tax returns will look like while President Trump is in office, not what his look like.”

Not long after Conway made that announcement, WikiLeaks posted this notice on Twitter:

They then added this:

An online petition calling on Trump to let the public see his tax returns has already received 100,000 signatures, the amount needed to get an official response from the White House. The petition was created Friday, shortly after Trump took the oath of office. It calls on the White House to “immediately release Donald Trump’s full tax returns, with all information needed to verify emoluments clause compliance.”

But now WikiLeaks, which played a role in helping to get Trump elected with their release of emails from inside the Democratic National Committee and senior staffers in the Clinton camp, says they want to play a role in potentially embarrassing and even taking down Trump. What might their real agenda be?

We can all hope that someone will indeed get ahold of the Trump tax information and allow the American public to see exactly who controls the purse strings for this corrupt and illegitimate pretend president.

As much as I despise Trump, how can Assange criticize him after reneging on his offer to repatriate after Chelsea Manning’s pardon.
