Democrats are hell bent of forcing President Donald Trump to release his tax returns and other personal financial records for the 10 years or more.
Somehow, they feel that it is required of every president or presidential candidate.
I’ve read through the US Constitution a number of times and there is no place in our founding document nor any of the 27 Amendments requires the release of tax returns and financial records.
However, that is not stopping Democrats who hope to find reasons in Trump’s tax returns to smear him and damage his presidency and chance for re-election.

Democrats in more than 20 states are trying to push legislation that would require all presidential and vice-presidential candidates to release their tax returns in order to appear on a ballot, in hopes of either forcing Trump’s hand or blocking him from appearing on the 2020 ballots in their states.

I need to remind them that Democrats supported Barack Obama’s refusal to make public his official birth certificate to prove his eligibility to run for the White House.
Obama also initially refused to release his Selective Service card, until after he was elected in 2008.
Then, an official investigation showed that Obama’s birth certificate that was eventually released by the White House along with his Selective Service Card were forgeries.
Even his Social Security Number was highly questionable since that sequence of number was issued in a state he was not born nor ever lived in, yet Democrats defended his right to privacy.
The actions of these blue-state Democrats should be illegal and a violation of federal election laws.
