SCALISE: ‘Somebody Clearly Broke the Law to Leak’ Trump’s Tax History, Democrats Don’t Care

Congressman Minority Whip Steve Scalise is firing shots at the Democrats and the media as we all know parts of the Presidents taxes were leaked as everyone tried to tell these federal judges they would be.

Democrats “don’t care” that “somebody clearly must have broken the law” to obtain President Trump’s tax returns, GOP House Minority Whip Steve Scalise told “The Brian Kilmeade Show” on Tuesday.

Scalise, R-La., made the comment following a New York Times report that President Trump paid no federal income taxes in 10 of the previous 15 years.

On Monday, Trump defended his tax history, saying that he paid “millions of dollars” to the Internal Revenue Service and argued he is “entitled” to tax credits “like everyone else” in the wake of the New York Times report.

Scalise told Fox News Radio host Brian Kilmeade on Tuesday that the Democratic party “has been the party of hoaxes, Russia collusion, impeachment, tax returns since 2016… because they have no agenda.”

“They don’t want people to be looking at their agenda, which is to move toward socialism,” Scalise continued. “Joe Biden is trying to hide what he’s standing for, that’s why they hide him in a basement.”

He then explained the approaches, saying one is “freedom, what President Trump’s done to get an economy back, versus Biden who has been trying to hide what he stands for so they [Democrats] just throw everything at the wall, accuse the president of things every day.”

“People are sick and tired of that kind of personal politics,” Scalise said, adding that Democrats “literally have whistleblowers who leak classified information illegally” and it “turns out most of the stuff they leak ends up being false.

“But the headlines are always the thing that are out there driving the story regardless of the truth and here somebody clearly must have broken the law, but they don’t care about that,” Scalise continued.

“It’s all about power for them and they will do whatever it takes to get power, but it’s not going to work because the hard working people of this country don’t want to move towards socialism, they don’t want a lawless society with rioting and looting, that’s what’s at stake in this election.”
