The Washington Post - Now out of office, Trump may have to face tax questions

 

today

 

 

However his impeachment trial ends, Trump faces an IRS decision on a massive refund and may no longer be able to conceal his tax returns.

 

Once his impeachment trial concludes and former president Donald Trump returns to his business, he will face some obvious challenges, such as declining real estate income and investigations from New York authorities.

 

But he may also have to finally face two tax issues that have been simmering in the background, either of which experts say could carry significant consequences should they materialize now that he is out of office.

 

One is a massive income tax refund Trump received before entering office, according to the New York Times, one that has quietly been under a years-long review by the Internal Revenue Service and a little-known congressional panel, the Joint Committee on Taxation.

 

The refund, which the IRS issued to Trump in 2010 for $72.9 million, according to the Times, could be a non-issue for Trump if the agency rules that it was issued appropriately and he should keep the funds.

 

But if the agency rules against him, he could be asked to pay it back with interest, handing him a debt of more than $100 million at a time when some of his biggest properties are suffering severe revenue losses and the law firm that handled his tax issues cut ties with him following the attack on the U.S. Capitol. ...

 

 

 

 

We live in hope ...  😶

Biden canned any new funds for The Border Wall saying there was never an emergency as declared by Trump. He also asked judges to hold sanctions on TikTok and other chat apps.

 

Trump failed even at bringing a teenager pranksters platform down.

The Washington Post - The 5-Minute Fix: Day 3

 

today

 


Thursday’s impeachment news in a sentence: The House impeachment managers wrapped up their arguments that former president Donald Trump incited the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, saying that if Trump isn’t convicted, he could incite more violence in the future.

 

Having spent Wednesday presenting emotional and intense video and audio evidence Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) and his team spent Thursday linking it all back to Trump. ...

 

Ultimately, it all built up to an argument that Trump is still dangerous, and still capable of inciting the kind of violence that occurred Jan. 6. ...

Trump insults: To go with the cartoons and caption contests, how about an insult competition? Trump enjoys demeaning others for their appearance and characteristics he doesn't approve of. I'm sure some of us can come up with appropriate responses. You are hereby invited to offer the best Trump insult you can think of. I am looking for clever, but not vicious. Nothing that wishes him harm or anything horrible, just good put-downs that make him appear as small and petty as he really is. Maybe later we can vote on a winner. Here is my inaugural effort:

 

Half the Mexicans Trump won't let into America speak better English than he does!

Just don't call him a son of an orangutan. From 2013, before Trump threw Michael Cohen under the bus:

Reuters: Trump withdraws "orangutan" lawsuit against comic Bill Maher

Donald Trump is withdrawing his lawsuit against television host and comedian Bill Maher seeking $5 million that Maher said he would give to charity, in a seemingly facetious offer, if Trump could prove he was not the son of an orangutan.

The lawsuit stems from comments Maher made during an appearance on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” in January in which he said an orangutan’s fur was the only thing in nature that matches the shade of Trump’s trademark hair.

Records in Los Angeles Superior Court show the real estate mogul requested the lawsuit be dismissed without prejudice on Friday, eight weeks after he filed it. His spokesman, Michael Cohen, said Trump plans to file an amended lawsuit sometime in the future.

New York Times: Trump Was Sicker Than Acknowledged With Covid-19

"President Donald J. Trump was sicker with Covid-19 in October than publicly acknowledged at the time, with extremely depressed blood oxygen levels at one point and a lung problem associated with pneumonia caused by the coronavirus, according to four people familiar with his condition.

His prognosis became so worrisome before he was taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center that officials believed he would need to be put on a ventilator, two of the people familiar with his condition said.

The people familiar with Mr. Trump’s health said he was found to have lung infiltrates, which occur when the lungs are inflamed and contain substances such as fluid or bacteria. Their presence, especially when a patient is exhibiting other symptoms, can be a sign of an acute case of the disease. They can be easily spotted on an X-ray or scan, when parts of the lungs appear opaque, or white.

Mr. Trump’s blood oxygen level alone was cause for extreme concern, dipping into the 80s, according to the people familiar with his evaluation. The disease is considered severe when the blood oxygen level falls to the low 90s.

It has been previously reported that Mr. Trump had trouble breathing and a fever on Oct. 2, the day he was taken to the hospital, and the types of treatment he received indicated that his condition was serious. But the new details about his condition and about the effort inside the White House to get him special access to an unapproved drug to fight the virus help to flesh out one of the most dire episodes of Mr. Trump’s presidency.

The new revelations about Mr. Trump’s struggle with the virus also underscore the limited and sometimes misleading nature of the information disclosed at the time about his condition.

The former president resisted being taken from the White House to Walter Reed, relenting when aides told him that he could walk out on his own, or risk waiting until the U.S. Secret Service was forced to carry him out if he got sicker, two people familiar with the events said.

While Mr. Trump was hospitalized at Walter Reed, his medical team sought to downplay the severity of the situation, saying that he was on an upswing. At 74 and overweight, he was at risk for severe disease, and was prescribed an aggressive course of treatments. He left the hospital after three days in which he at one point staged a brief ride in his armored sport-utility vehicle to wave at the crowd of supporters outside the building.

When Trump returned to Florida as a private citizen, he decided to brush up on his seduction technique. 
He entered a local bar, ordered a Diet Coke, and struck up a conversation with an attractive blonde. 
After a few minutes of chitchat, he said, 
"Can I smell your pussy?".
"Certainly not!"
"Must be your feet, then."
