Some of you are excited when that minimum wage paycheck hits every other Friday and you have the nerve to talk down about Trump's accomplishments. If he lied about his businesses to the point where he's only worth 20% of what he claims he is he'd still be wealthier than your entire county.
When Trump releases his taxes I'll take you seriously.

Nobody really cares who you take seriously or not, President Trump certainly doesn't and I care less than he does.

No. Not until all of the indictments are ready for all of the players. There are three or four hundred sealed indictments in D.C. District Court and SDNY currently, some of which have been there since last November. I would wager that some of those contain some of the information you asked for.

The current trial is about tax evasion only on the surface. The first indictment of Russian nationals established the reality of a state of war between the United States and Russia, and the second set underscored the first. Trump has come up in the current trial, but only because Manafort's lawyers were trying to probe and find out what Mueller knows. There were objections by the prosecution, which were sustained. The information that Mueller wasn't read to release was protected.

The trial in September will be another trial about money, but my guess is there will be some disclosure of Manafort's dealings while he was Trump's campaign manager. Again, it will be limited. It may take another two or three sessions of unsealing indictments to get where we're going, but it will happen, and it will happen on Bob Mueller's schedule. You have as much chance as Rudy Giuliani has of getting him to speed up.

You're right. We should all have applied ourselves vigorously and inherited two hundred million dollars.

The question is, does he even still have that much left once you calculate in his assets vs. what he owes?

What does that have to do with the Obama administration illegally spying on the opposition candidate? And other Americans.
