Why isn’t Trump releasing his tax returns?
Three possible reasons:
1. He thinks that what’s in there is politically damaging.
2. He’s afraid that if thousands of people who hate him go over his returns with a fine tooth comb, they’ll find wrongdoing in there that has previously been overlooked by IRS auditors.
3. The same reasons why Obama never released his birth certificate for years.
A reminder about #3:
For years and years, Obama-hating people believed that Obama must be hiding something very damaging. Why else wouldn’t he release his birth certificate? Obama made up a bunch of stupid and not-believable excuses for why he couldn’t release it. But then, it was finally released (proving that the excuses were fake) and there was nothing worth seeing.
Trump could be doing the same head-fake as Obama.

No, the reason he won’t release is because he’s hiding a bribe made in unmarked roubles he took directly from Vladimir Putin that he declared on his 1040. – NY Times Comment Section
