Mitt Romney Says Trump’s Taxes May Include a Bombshell

Mitt Romney, the original Mr. Milquetoast presidential candidate of 2012, appeared on Fox News Wednesday, insisting that Donald Trump release his tax returns, and wondered if those tax documents might contain “a bombshell.”

“We have good reason to believe that there’s a bombshell in Donald Trump’s taxes. Either he’s not anywhere near as wealthy as he says he is, or he hasn’t been paying taxes we would expect him to pay or perhaps he hasn’t been giving money to vets or to the disabled like he’s been telling us he’s been doing,” said Romney, adding that Sens. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz should do likewise. However, the tax returns of both Senators are available from the time they ran for Senate; furthermore, when questioned by Megyn Kelly on the Fox News Town Hall Wednesday night, Cruz said he would readily release his most recent returns.

Romney’s comments brought on another Twitter Trumpertantrum from The Donald, full of rage and his trademark high school style ad hominem attacks. These beauts occurred within one minute of each other.

And one minute later. . .

Hold on a second, didn’t Trump tell Hugh Hewitt in an interview that he would release his tax returns? Why, yes. Yes he did.

So why the Trumpertantrum?

Maybe The Donald isn’t quite as rich as he brags he is. In June, 2015, Forbes found that Trump not only padded his net worth numbers, he boasted that it was more than double of what Forbes estimated. That’s not fudging, that’s a bold-faced lie:

One of the biggest moments of the conference was when Trump unveiled his claim that he has a net worth $8.7 billion, which he said was put together by a top notch accounting agency that he didn’t mention by name. That is more than double the $4.1 billion estimate Forbes put together during our latest billionaire issue in March. Trump’s claim lacks specific details and includes a $2 billion value for such amorphous assets as his personal brand.

And Trump repeatedly calls Ted Cruz a liar?

But Trump may have even more bombshells emerging: he’s slated to take the witness stand in San Diego in a fraud trial involving his Trump Entrepreneur Initiative. He has been accused of running a scam, the now-defunct “Trump University,” a three-day workshop that bilked consumers of up to $35,000 to learn to flip homes. Court papers filed last Friday have indicated that Trump is scheduled to be grilled under oath over allegations in the lawsuit that he engaged in deceptive trade practices. One couple who brought a lawsuit wrote in an affidavit that after ponying up over $20,000 for classes, all they received was a field trip where a Trump University instructor showed them dilapidated buildings in Philadelphia. There was no instruction as to how to find properties to flip.

What’s more, should the civil trial take place in May, it will occur smack dab in the final juncture of the Republican primary season, which includes the giant California primary.

Looks like Hillary Clinton isn’t the only candidate who practiced large-scale massive deception and corruption.

    I’ve lost respect for a lot of people in this election cycle: Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney top that list. It looks like I can vote for the Libertarian candidate this year and have a clear conscience about it.
