After a multiyear court battle, the Supreme Court allowed the release of six years of former President Donald Trump’s tax returns to be turned over to the House Ways and Means Committee. Trump declined to release his returns during the 2016 presidential election, and now that he’s announced a bid for the White House in 2024, the returns have become even more critical. House Democrats will lose the majority leadership in less than a month and have little time to act. Straight Arrow News contributor Rashad Richey argues a Trump indictment could be coming soon.
Walls are starting to finally close in on Donald Trump. Latest report, House Democrats will now have access to his tax returns. Yes. Finally, for years Democrats have been asking, have been demanding, putting in directives, subpoenas, etc. Nothing yielded a result until now. Donald Trump now will have to answer for six years of tax returns, including while he was president of the United States. The House Ways and Means Committee will now have the next move after a thorough review. But what does this say? What does this mean? It means they actually are serious about prosecuting Donald Trump. They’re going to throw everything at him that they can validate was an actual crime.
That’s my opinion. I believe that’s exactly how it’s going to go. So let’s count the ways here. No matter what Donald Trump does for the rest of his life, he will be a defendant on some level, criminal or civil. It looks as if this indictment is coming. And it’s coming fast. I do believe there’s a coordinated effort between the Department of Justice prosecutor in charge of that particular investigation and individuals who are members of the Jan. 6 committee, I think there is some level of coordination based on reading the tea leaves.
And then Donald Trump also has to still deal with Fulton County DA Fani Willis, where he’s being investigated for election fraud, trying to convince a government official to change the official outcome of an election. All of these things are happening at the same time. After now he has announced he’s running for president again. He gets this tax thing. DeSantis is probably stronger than Trump in many states right now. And his own bigoted, very bigoted base. Many of them are well known racists, and they admit it. Well, they decided to start turning on Trump after his announcement speech did not include white power.
