The Washington Post Is Not Happy That President Trump's Income From Russian Has No Documentation

Washington Post: Trump lawyers outline president’s Russian income but provide no documents

The White House on Friday released a letter from two tax attorneys for President Trump claiming that his only income from Russian sources in the past 10 years came from fees for hosting the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow in 2013, his sale of a Palm Beach mansion to a Russian businessman in 2008 and his company’s routine sales of condo units and rounds of golf to Russians.

The attorneys said that their analysis came from a review of Trump’s tax returns for the past 10 years. However, they did not release the returns or provide any documents to support their claims.

The letter, from lawyers Sheri A. Dillon and William F. Nelson, also asserted that Trump holds no debt from Russian lenders and holds no equity in Russian entities. They explained that because of the way that Trump operates his businesses, his corporate income and debt would be disclosed on his personal tax returns.

Update: Trump lawyers: Documents show no undisclosed Russian income (Canadian Press/AP)

WNU Editor: So the Washington Post is upset because they want documentation for transactions that never happened. I am with Trump on this one. I .... like all Canadians who earn income from abroad .... must declare income that is earned from overseas. Because of a family business in Russia, I do get some income each year .... and I do declare it (in both Russia and in Canada). A few years back I was audited by the Quebec province .... and yes .... they also wanted documentation for non-existent transactions from Russia. I did win my case .... I do not hide income and I do declare everything .... but it was a nuisance and a headache that I did not need. As for President Trump .... who earns far more than I do, and who is also the President of the United States .... I can only imagine what his accountants and lawyers must be going through right now. But the Washington Post does make a good point on his sons and their business relations with Russia. I have mentioned it before .... his sons are running their businesses and operations while their dad is the President. The opportunity to have a conflict of interest is there .... and if not handled properly .... it can easily blow up in their face.

But the WaPo is doing due diligence in this case merely because their target is on the other side. Period.

While doing their due diligence, they are making a____ of themselves.

There was the story that Obama got donations under the reporting limit that were for odd dollar amounts and change.
It was theorized these odd dollar amount started as out as even amounts of money in another currency.

So the question was who were the donors. Were they overseas expats? Or was a foreign entity spamming money?

LMFAO at all the rubes,

"Scientific Study Concludes No One Trusts Lawyers
Lawyers are ranked on par with prostitutes when it comes to trust. Lovely."

"The law firm that said Donald Trump has no financial ties to Russia “with a few exceptions” was recognized in 2016 as Russia law firm of the year."

"She said the Trump Organization will not enter into any new overseas deals while Trump is president and will only undertake domestic projects after a company ethics adviser has approved them. But the arrangement falls short of the blind trust or complete divestment many ethics experts have called for."


If Trump, as it is claimed, is in bed financially, legally or otherwise, with the Russian's, his tax returns are going to show only occasional financial income from Russians.

Trump mostly get's paid by his Trump Companies, so his tax returns are going to mostly show income from various Trump holdings and Trump Brands, like Trump Steaks, Trump Water, Trump Air, Trump Tower, Trump University.

So, it's the various Trump Companies that will possibly show Russian Transactions,

and if there is any truth to the claims that Trump laundered/launders money for the Russian Mob and helps illegally offshore Russian money,

The transactions with the Trump Companies arn't going to show "Russians", they are going to sow transactions with "numbered" and "blank" Companies in Nevada, Delaware, Panema, Cyprus, Gibralter, British Columbia, and other money laundering havens, companies perhaps on the Mossack Fonseca lists.

LMFAO at all the Gullibillies.

It is obvious that Jabber has not brought money from overseas. Bring money to Canada from the U.S. a long time ago does not count.

I don't care about the tax thing, Jabber.

For the last 8 years the IRS was run by the Democrats. Democrat sympathetic managers probably arte still all over the IRS.

For the last 16 of 24 years the IRS has been run by Dhimmicrats.

If there was something to find, they should have found it. Obasma surely was spying on him. You think Bambam used the FBI alone? LMAO , but you are a stupid partisan.

As Rush Limbaugh said professional politicians arrange their business dealing so their taxes present a certain way. Occasionally, they mess up so that it is blatantly obvious that they are getting sweetheart deals like Nancy Pelousy and the Coca Cola stock.

Obama spied on Trump and found Nada!

The Long List of People the Obama Administration Spied On

I know of another organization not releasing its returns to the public. It is under similar circumstances. You do not release a statement, when you are under audit. Unless you are JabberJay

Poor little dumb fuck Jay can talk to Sharyl Attkinson about Obama spying and shenanigans.

Why Is Trump Reluctant to Release His Tax Returns?
