Donald Trump’s tax returns have been a serious issue since his campaigning days of 2016. And it finally looks as though it may all be coming to a head.
Just hours ago, CNN reported that the long-time Trump creditor, Deutsche Bank — the only bank that would suspiciously lend Trump a single red cent after multiple bankruptcies and failed business ventures — not only has Donald’s tax returns, but can hand them over to House Democrats in compliance with a subpoena as part of their investigation into Trump’s finances.
But Trump’s troubles don’t end there.
Tonight, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell dropped a major revelation, reporting:
“The source close to Deutsche Bank says that the Trump tax returns reveal that the president pays little to no income tax in some years. And the source says that Deutsche Bank is in possession of loan documents that show Donald Trump has obtained loans with co-signers and that he would not have been able to obtain those loans without co-signers.”
“The source close to Deutsche Bank says that the co-signers of Donald Trump’s Deutsche Bank loans are Russian billionaires close to Vladimir Putin,” O’Donnell continued.
“If true, that would explain every kind word Donald Trump has ever said about Russia and Vladimir Putin. If true, that would be a significant factor in Vladimir Putin’s publicly stated preference for presidential candidate Donald Trump over presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.”
O’Donnell then went on to interview NBC News national affairs analyst John Heilemann on the ramifications Trump can expect from such a revelation:
“Got to stress if true, but if true, the reporting that you have your source, it’s the skeleton key, right, that open — picks the lock on so many fundamental mysteries of the Trump era, the ones we thought Robert Mueller was going to answer and we now know the reason that Robert Mueller didn’t answer them, all the connections, the nexus with Russia on a million levels, political, financial, security, everything else, criminal potentially, was because he was basically told he couldn’t look at this stuff. This was the stuff he wasn’t allowed to go for. He couldn’t go looking for the skeleton key.”
Hellman continued to explain, “So now if we have the skeleton key, it picks a lot of locks and answers a lot of questions and also puts Trump in a very difficult place politically, partly because we’re barrelling towards a re-election campaign and we’re also on the clock for the impeachment hearings. We also know it’s almost Labor Day. We know decisions have to get made. And in this narrative, this moment, if the skeleton key suddenly were to emerge, it would, I think, make impeachment proceedings absolutely inevitable starting this fall.”
Looks like your time is up, Donnie boy.
