Trump Campaign: New York Times Illegally Obtained Tax Records

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is accusing the New York Times of participating in illegal behavior after the newspaper published some of his tax records on Saturday night.

“The only news here is that the more than 20-year-old alleged tax document was illegally obtained, a further demonstration that the New York Times, like establishment media in general, is an extension of the Clinton campaign, the Democratic Party and their global special interests,” the campaign said in a statement.

    Lord Justice General Lord Clyde: … in the case of Ayrshire Pullman Motor Services v Inland Revenue [1929] 14 Tax Case 754, at 763,764:

    “No man in the country is under the smallest obligation, moral or other, so to arrange his legal relations to his business or property as to enable the Inland Revenue to put the largest possible shovel in his stores. The Inland Revenue is not slow, and quite rightly, to take every advantage which is open to it under the Taxing Statutes for the purposes of depleting the taxpayer’s pocket. And the taxpayer is in like manner entitled to be astute to prevent, so far as he honestly can, the depletion of his means by the Inland Revenue”


    • Well put!

        And then … Judge Learned Hand, in the case of Gregory v. Helvering 69 F.2d 809, 810 (2d Cir. 1934):
        “Anyone may arrange his affairs so that his taxes shall be as low as
        possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which best pays the treasury. There is not even a patriotic duty to increase one’s taxes. Over and over again the Courts have said that there is nothing sinister in so arranging affairs as to keep taxes as low as possible. Everyone does it, rich and poor alike and all do right, for nobody owes any public duty to pay more than the law demands.”

    Lois Learner is corrupt as it is, she had to have been an insider or complicit by-proxy to allow private Tax records to be given to people outside the IRS that will Benefit the democrats.
    Obama has ruined it for Blacks that had spent decades asserting that the USA and Society would be more Just and Fair once they get into position of power.
    The Blacks under Obama that got the Diversity jobs have now shown to be the most corrupt and racist low IQ crooks that may be deemed as Black Trash from trailer parks.
    No wonder these treasonous weasels get along with the Clinton’s , they have a shared corrupt spirit to sell-out Blacks and the USA in general which also explains why Obama and the Democrat are islamophiles to aid and abet it the islamic pro-jihad/hamas org destroy the USA from within.

    Chris Stevens was gay , Hillary is complicit by-proxy in his murder.

    But hey…..what difference does it make at this point if 1 less queer is on Earth when my goal is to be the first Women president. Obama and I conspired to keep the GLAAD people quiet when we suddenly embraced same-gender marriage
    which we were against in 2009 .
    Then there was the 49 gays murdered by a devout muslims in Orlando thanks to Hillary and Obama , buy what’s 49 less queer’s on Earth when Hillary wants to be President .

      You still didn’t get it? Trump send the tax returns to the NYT. Now every idiot in the media says he did not pay any taxes for the following 20 years. And next, Trump will release his tax return from the last 20 years, which will show that he payed millions in taxes. The media will look like fools.
