    Today the Fourth U.S. Circuit Court Of Appeals dismissed the emoluments suit against Trump regarding his rental of hotel space to foreign governments in his hotels around the D.C area. He is now free to continue to make money off of foreign governments while president. One can be pretty certain that once Trump leaves office they will be tough new legislation introduced that will significantly tighten the rules surrounding campaign finance the emoluments clause and obstruction of justice. Becoming finished law? Well, all you can do it wait and hope while being realistic when it comes to the reality of our times when the good of the nation is no longer placed ahead of the greed driven pursuit of money power and of course women.

    Joe Biden's last two tax returns show he grossed $15 million since leaving office. Doing what exactly?

    Mostly from book deals. Also his wife is a college professor and he also made money off some college. It's good to see people man enough to open their books.

    When he announced his candidacy Trump said that he couldn't release his tax returns due to the fact that he was undergoing an audit and that the would release them after the audit THAT WAS 5 YEARS AGO! Now unless he's undergone the longest audit in the history of the IRS ( unless they're beginning to see possible evidence of willful tax fraud) there's no reason why those tax returns should not be made public.

    Trumps got money, Trump had losses, he most likely used loopholes set up by democrats and republicans to off set those loses. Nobody cares outside of democrats if he shows them or not.

    It’s gross these politicians have ties to publicly funded things like colleges and no one blinks an eye when they talk about massive subsidies for them.

    Only if he has something to hide. Nevertheless he said he would release them . Time to make good on that promise especially given that he's nearly two thirds of the way through his term.
