House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced legislation on Friday that would require the president and vice president and candidates for the presidency and vice presidency to release their tax returns.

The bill, however, would not require members of Congress or candidates for Congress to release their tax returns.

The provision is part of H.R. 1—the “For the People Act”—which Pelosi introduced Friday. A summary of the bill says that it includes a section titled “Presidential Tax Transparency.” […]

In 2017, when members of Congress were calling on President Donald Trump to release his tax returns, Roll Call asked all 535 members of the House and Senate to release theirs. As Roll Call reported at the time, 6 members did release their tax returns as requested by the publication. Another 6 had already released theirs elsewhere. Another 45 members, Roll Call reported, had previously and partially released their tax returns. But 473 members had not released their tax returns and did not respond to Roll Call’s request that they do so.

The Constitution sets the criteria to be eligible for POTUS. Releasing tax returns is not one of them.

I think a poll might turn up a spectrum of opinion on the advanced hypothesis.

To listen to the D-(lusionals)s whining, you would think it’s already a requirement. But certainly PDJT will sign that. Right?

VETO - Not needed, doubt if it would pass in the house, and if so would never get past the Senate.

It is unconstitutional to pass a law directed at one individual. It is also unconstitutional for a law to be retro active. So even if such a law could be passed it would not affect President Trump, only future Presidents.

Now do the Democrats really want such a law on the books? Would Hillary?

No this is rhetoric for her base and nothing more.

Exactly. Further more they want tax returns from when he was a private citizen. Don’t think congressional oversight reaches to private citizens.

The public has an interest in knowing what companies/industries these people in congress have a position in. They seem to get pretty rich after just a few years in the swamp.

The democrats are just playing childish games. They have no interest in improving the country. They want the worst for America and they want us all to suffer. They hate Trump. That is their guiding principle.
