Trump’s tax returns

[W]hatever Donald Trump is hiding in his tax returns must be really explosive. Otherwise, why won’t he release them? ….

And yet he won’t. Why on Earth not? It makes no sense, zero, unless:

A. The man is a total fool; or

B. The actual returns contain information so damaging that he dare not release them under any circumstance.

And whatever else Donald Trump may be, I do not think he is a total fool.

With questions over Russia ties dominating the headlines again, the White House released a letter from the president’s lawyers, which said that their review of 10 years’ worth of Mr Trump’s tax returns showed no income from Russian sources, “with a few exceptions”.
