President Donald Trump didn’t release his tax returns during the 2016 presidential race, becoming the first presidential candidate in modern history not to do so and — as a bonus — irritating Democrats to no end.
Even though Trump is now the president, Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media are still trying to find Trump’s tax returns in the hopes that they contain some sort of damaging information that could lead to his impeachment.
Nicholas Kristof, a New York Times columnist, attracted a fair amount of outrage over the weekend when he sent out a tweet suggesting that someone in the IRS should leak Trump’s tax returns to him.
“But if you’re in IRS and have a certain president’s tax return that you’d like to leak, my address is: NYT, 620 Eighth Ave, NY NY 10018,” he wrote.

Many of replies to Kristof’s moronic tweet pointed out that he was asking someone to break the law, and that if indeed the tax returns leaked, Kristof could be prosecuted for it.
“Conspiracy to commit a crime is a felony there Nicki boy,” wrote Keith Rodesbush.

Others pointed out that Kristof would likely never make this request if it were a Democrat who hadn’t released his tax returns.
It seems unlikely that the IRS would leak Trump’s tax returns now. That isn’t because they are all nice people — it’s quite the opposite actually. The IRS is loaded with big-government Democrats who get some sick pleasure out of taking money from the American people. It’s a safe bet that if there had been anything damaging in Trump’s tax returns, someone at the IRS would have leaked it a year ago to quash Trump’s candidacy.
Liberals need to find something else to holler about. Complaining endlessly about Trump’s tax returns is just ridiculous, and almost no one cares anymore.
