Wasn't it the Democrats that hired the Russians, who wrote the "dossier" on Trump?

Not that Trump would have to pay this personally, but to add to your context... Trump's personal income was something like $25-30 million a month in 2015. That's beyond nice scratch.

more hypocritical justifications

If the Clinton foundation was being sued for the same reason and amount would you dismiss it as well?

I didn't contribute any comment in regards to the charges. I merely added context to the amount of damages being pursued.

Sassicaia:
Totally agree with you and not purposelessly trying to appear immune to the continuing behavior of these crooks. Unfortunately, its a fact we all are becoming a little numb to it all because its all day-every day. Its pretty sad and I find nothing in the least bit heroic regarding this president or his family because they seem to delight in robbing all of their dignity and principles for the slightest imagined offense or protest of their behavior. America is not first and our Allies despise him. This will cost all of us in the long run.

No need for tax returns to dispel your skepticism.

Trump has filed the required financial disclosure documents ever since he formally became a candidate. Actually you might recall all the know-nothings quite confidently stating that Trump wouldn't ever run for office because they were so sure he wouldn't disclose his finances. Well, obviously he did; and has filed these since. How did you miss that?

I'll save you the "trump financial disclosure" search engine keystrokes and provide a nice easy-to-read link. Enjoy.

http://money.cnn.com/2017/06/19/news...ays/index.html

Edit: I erroneously understated President Trump's personal income in an earlier post. You'll notice in the provided link that he made $600-650 million from Jan 2016 through mid-April 2017. That works out to ~$40 million dollars a month, or perhaps ~$10 million dollars a week. That is a nice paycheck!

Think about this fact the next time someone (like Michelle Wolf) foolishly says President Trump is broke. If I could only be so broke!

I wonder how much of that pay check goes to serving those liabilities of at least $311 million.

The fact that this man has endured multiple bankruptcies leaves him wide open to subversive elements that offer pay to play, and that is exactly what has happened. The CEO of the country cannot indulge in financial dealings that do not benefit the country-his own situation must be remote from any dealings. The way to establish a baseline of judging this is his tax returns.

1. This man hasn't "endured multiple bankruptcies." He has used bankruptcy protection laws for companies, but to call this practice a "man's" bankruptcy you'd have to claim companies are people, and I know how the far Left feels about that.

2. His own dealings with his businesses is as remote as can be. Tax returns have nothing to do with proving this case. That's what the financial disclosure filings are for.

Come on now. He is the president/treasurer/secretary of Mara-a-Logo and has benefitted substantially by housing secret services, etc all on the taxpayers dime.

If I recall correctly, these financial disclosure forms often suffer from omissions and failures to disclose meaningful financial information. Tax returns show sources of (legal) funds when reviewed over several years.

Lol...

The financial disclosure is extremely vague and is not suited to Real Estate holdings. Income is not individual nor is it net. That's gross income from everything; both personal and corporate. The debts are listed far below their full amount (his personal liabilities against corporate debts are close to a billion not including taxes and debt service costs), and the stated values for the properties are as a whole. Partnership interests are not deducted.

"Tell Vladimir that I'll have more flexibility after my re-election..." I think Obama said that? Was he talking about his new job with Putin? We will never know, because he never clarified what he meant, and the media never held him to it.

But that Trump!

IIRC, Trump has had 6 businesses declare bankruptcy, out of over 1,200 business he has established? Wow - he's a mess!

you realize of course that quite a few of his bankruptcies were in businesses where people paid cash to make bets where he controlled the odds, and he came out okay but screwed his bondholders. This later forced him to accept Russian money (laundered) for his golf course enterprises because no bank would finance him.
That's where the good times began for us, and why he wont release his tax returns.
