Ron Wyden: Why We Need to See Trump's Tax Returns

As in any hierarchy, the top feels that it should not be held accountable. No where is this more obvious than with our incoming president Donald Trump. Apparently, as we see with his tweets, everyone is accountable to him, but he is accountable to no one.

Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon, in a New York Times op-ed, discusses that without Trump's tax returns, we can not know if he is enriching himself and his family with his position, and whether a policy he proposes benefits Americans or the Trump family. We also don't know if he is telling the truth about his ties to Russia.

Trump of course lies all the time, and expects not to be held accountable for what he does or says. Typical of the top, but hopefully for the good of our country, his unabashed insistence will eventually bring him down.
