This coming from someone who isn't smart enough to realize that it's Congress which writes the tax code.

That's a pretty desperate excuse.

But I know a few Drudge Righties that will trot it out and then run away from the conversation.

She also issued a statement that "flying water tankers" would dump Trump's wet illegible tax returns on Congress.

Presuming the White House premise is true, it really doesn't matter.

The Democrats (and the rest of Congress) can ask for assistance from CPAs and others who work with the tax code day in, day out. People who know the tax code, and the ways (legal and otherwise) people use to dodge it, inside and out.

Because the reason given by the White House makes no sense, you have to think, why is the White House trying to prevent Congress from getting the tax returns?

What reputation did she have before working at this WH? She is just Mike Huckabee's daughter, which speaks for itself.

Congress needs to learn to speak Trumplandian.

Dear Mr President (some would say best President)

We are WRITING to you to request your tax returns. Are willing to send truck to pick up as they are so big, massive even(!) from your many large and successful businesses (WOW!!!)

We realize they will be very, very too complicated for us to understand as we are small from the standpoint of intelligence but would be fun to see them!

Agreed. But, it's more like they will try to cherry pick and spin something that is not even remotely true. It's sad that there are so many in Congress wanting to overthrow the government of the US. They can't win using the rules, so a coup d'etat is all they have.

So adorable.

The rules permit Congress to subpoena the tax records for investigation.

What rules are you talking about?
