Federal investigators are reportedly closing in on President Donald Trump, and his most embarrassing secret could soon be exposed for the whole world to see.
For more than a year now, Trump has been refusing to release his tax returns to the public, and he’s the only president in modern history to fail to do so. Now we are learning why Trump is so afraid of letting Americans see his tax information – it’s because he’s dead broke and he’s embarrassed as hell about it.
Special prosecutor Robert Mueller may be uncovering more details about Trump’s financial woes as part of the Russian eleciton hacking investigation. Insiders say this is Trump’s darkest secret and he’s humiliated that it may come out.
“No, it’s not the Pee Pee Tape. Donald Trump is clearly afraid of his sexual fetishes being exposed, as evidenced by the time he called up then-FBI Director James Comey specifically to insist that he hadn’t done anything with “Russian hookers.” But there’s something Trump fears even more, and we saw during the campaign that he was willing to risk losing the election just to keep it a secret: he’s broke,” investigative reporter Bill Palmer wrote.
Sources say Mueller has started to investigate some of Trump’s previous business transactions and could also be taking a look at Trump’s tax returns very soon to see if there were any financial ties between Trump and Russia. Trump is very alarmed by this possibility, which is not surprising.
President Trump is troubled by the possibility that special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia could expand to include an examination of Trump’s and his family’s finances.
The Washington Post reported late Thursday that the president has been particularly upset by the notion that Mueller could access Trump’s personal tax returns, which he has repeatedly declined to release to the public.
As part of his investigation into the Kremlin’s role in the 2016 presidential election and whether members of Trump’s campaign coordinated with Russian officials or operatives to influence the race, Mueller is also looking at possible financial ties between campaign members and Russian interests.
Bloomberg reported on Thursday that the special counsel has begun to look at Trump’s business transactions, as well as those of his associates.
In an interview with The New York Times on Wednesday, Trump accused Mueller of running an investigation riddled with conflicts of interest and said the special counsel would cross a line if his probe expanded to include the Trump family’s finances.
Trump bucked a decadesold tradition during the presidential race by refusing to release his personal income tax returns.
He initially said his decision not to do so was because he was under audit by the IRS. He later said that the public “doesn’t care” about his tax returns, and that only journalists were interested in obtaining them.
Trump is going to get busted sooner or later and this could be the key to getting him kicked out of office!
