Watch Discredited Columnist George Will Push Theory Why Trump Isn’t Releasing Tax Returns

Columnist George Will became irrelevant during the primary season when he announced that general elections are the popular vote are not as important as the party elite. Well, now he’s putting forth an idea that Donald Trump is not releasing his tax returns because it might reveal involvement in business practices everyday Americans don’t understand.

According to The Blaze:

The Fox News contributor did not supply any concrete proof to back his claim, which he shared with Fox’s Brett Baier during a live taping of “Special Report” at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

Will’s comment comes after Democratic National Committee officials, including Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, suggested that pro-Trump Russian hackers may have been behind the recent release of nearly 20,000 DNC emails.

The emails, released Friday by the notorious online whistleblowing site WikiLeaks, prompted criticism from conservatives and Bernie Sanders supporters who saw them as revelatory of collusion between Clinton and the DNC. The scandal led DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz to announce her resignation just ahead of the convention that kicked off Monday.

“Both the campaign chair and anybody you talk to, including [Connecticut] Sen. [Chris] Murphy, would not go down that road once pressed on the connection between Russia and the Trump campaign,” said Baier. “But they have thrown it out there.”

“Well, it’s the sort of thing we might learn if we saw the candidate’s tax returns,” Will began. “Perhaps one more reason why we’re not seeing his tax returns — because he is deeply involved in dealing with Russian oligarchs and others. Whether that’s good, bad or indifferent, it’s probably the reasonable surmise.”

Will, 75, announced last month he was leaving the Republican Party, asserting that he could no longer stand by Trump’s politics.

“I decided that, in fact, this was not my party anymore,” the veteran journalist said in June.

It’s interesting how these talking heads can put forth unsubstantiated ideas like this without a shred of proof. While real proof exists of the DNC conspiring to steal the election from the more popular Bernie Sanders, the media seems more intent on speculating on why Mr. Trump, in the midst of an IRS audit, is not releasing his tax returns.

    George Wills—WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE?—you are a counter fit conservative—-why haven’t you joined the marxist democratic party?

    • Alan

      He probably has.

    • Tennman39

      For some time I’ve noticed that Wills has been very happy to trash conservatives and praise the Rino’s and Democrats. Time for George to change over to MSNBC he’ll fit right in.

  • cardmaster1

    We don’t need you, anyway. Go join the skank Hitlery.

    • Alex Ferguson

      You (meaning Teabaggers) don’t need George Will? Are you really THAT stupid, ma’am?? Once WF Buckley died, Will was the ONLY Conservatard with wit and erudition–now all you have is Sean insHannity! You say you don’t need help–HAA! tRump will be torched come November……

      • Mike

        I haven’t had any use for George Will for years. He’s nothing more than a GOP shill who doesn’t represent conservative values. Let him go to the hilgabeast. She could use the help. You think trump is going down in flames, well, Hillarys going to prison!! Hopefully it will be a short stay for her, just long enough to build the gallows to hang her for treason.

        • Alex Ferguson

          Going to prison? Okay—I’ll play along. FOR WHA?

          • Howleyesque

            He means she SHOULD but we all know that if she loses, Obama will give her a blanket pardon.

          • John Flynn

            she’s gotta be convicted first to need that pardon. besides, “o” will probably be in the next courtroom also being tried for “treason”

          • Howleyesque

            IF Trump IS elected, the evidence is there to convict that old hag and they all KNOW IT!

          • Tennman39

            Well Alex, you might start with LYING to congress, Using a private server, exposing our military and CIA to foreign espionage. I could go on but I believe Treason is punishable by death, ask the Rosenberg’s.

          • Alex Ferguson

            Julius & Ethel Rosenberg were heroes.

          • Tennman39

            Alex you are just proving you are so uninformed that to continue any discussion would only give you a forum to show that you are a socialist that believes the spies are hero’s. Any credence to further conversation isn’t necessary.

          • Alex Ferguson

            The Rosenbergs knew well that, as the US was the ONLY nation EVIL enough to incinerate sleeping babies, giving the Soviets the bomb would give us pause. It’s like when the gun fetishists say, “the only thing that can stop a bad man with a gun is a good man with a gun”–we—the USA–had already proven ourselves to be the BAD guys—not that the Soviets were GOOD, of course, but the Rosenbergs DEFINITELY made the world a SAFER PLACE!!

          • John Flynn

            tennman39, i’m sure the Rosenburgs would agree, posthumously

        • John Flynn

          indeed, hanging is the punishment for treason

  • Alex Ferguson

    The reason Don tRump refuses to release his tax papers is we will finally see that the Emperor wears no clothes—-
    save for the suits, shirts, and ties he DOESN’T pay Americans to produce! tRump is broke–American banks will not loan this deadbeat, failed businessman two cents, so he is now in DEEEP with the Russians, which explains why draft-dodger tRump is willing to give his butt-buddy—ex-KGB Colonel Vlad Putin both the Crimea AND our Baltic State allies—-talk about TREASON!!. tRump will be trounced come November—Thank God!!

    • Howleyesque

      Another Swillary pile of pig turds heard from… tell the old bat to produced those speech transcripts when she isn’t too busy selling uranium to the Russians!

      • Alex Ferguson

        She made speeches. She got paid for them. So?

        • Howleyesque

          NO ONE pays ANYONE MILLIONS TOO “confront them!” That lying old uranium selling corrupt to the bone, sold out old hag got paid to GIVE THEM SOMETHING IN RETURN! The question is WHAT? IF those transcripts SUPPORTED her claim… she’d be waving them ,like a flag! The fact that she’s HIDING THEM. like she did the incriminating emails tell us THEY DON’T!

          • Mike

            I think it might be tied to the North Korean nuclear capability that Bill Clinton gave to them back in the 90s. Hillary selling the uranium to Russia who then sells it to NK. The Clintons mob family gets to double dip from Russia and NK.
            Put the attention on Trump and divert it away from the Clintons!

          • fd181

            Her speeches are stored alongside Obama’s college records.

      • Howleyesque

        Swillary and Soros and the rest of the leftist slander machine.

  • Howleyesque

    Trump is being AUDITED by the same IRS that Lois Lerner used to target political opponents and that Swillary used to harass the women who accused Bill of rape! NO tax attorney EVER advises their client TOO release those during an audit! AND every single one of this collection of Clinton LIARS KNOWS IT!
    Meanwhile much of her campaign has been financed by SOROS! AND during the primaries she made it known that she’s good friends with? THE BUSH FAMILY! Who shows up too support her at the crooked convention? MIKIE “the FELON” Bloomerbug! Not a week later who chimes in with the dirty tricks crap but BUFFET! Now, how many of you Clinton FOOLS out there really think that Swillary 1%er is going to TAX her 1% BUDDIES more?
    SPEAKING of which… WHERE ARE THOSE SPEECH TRANSCRIPTS YOU LYING SOLD OUT OLD BAT?

    • Alex Ferguson

      “Howleyesque”—more like Monica Crowleyesque……………

        Better than voting for the sorry old pig in za pants suit whose husband is a serial rapist and who laughed about re victimizing a 12 year old rape victim. That’s some crowd you LOVE…, let me guess you’re into young boys… very YOUNG boys right you pedophile?

        • Alex Ferguson

          Madame President-to-be Clinton did NOT want to represent the rapist—she did it because it was her job, moron.

          • Howleyesque

            WHO GIVES A DAMN? SHE RE VICTIMIZED THE GIRL THEN LAUGHED LIKE A MANIAC ABOUT HAVING DONE IT! THAT is the TWISTED MESS you want in the White House!

          • Mike

            She couldn’t have quit her job?? She could’ve went to work anywhere. She had a Harvard law degree. NO! You’re wrong. She defended the rapist of a 12 year old child because she’s a piece of shit liberal.

            Mr. Alex, I am being cordial in this to you in that I don’t need a gun, nor a knife to kill anyone! I am a trained ex-military person that only used them to go hunting for deer, rabbit, and turkey. I don’t use but one bullet to kill as more than that just means you don’t know how to shoot to kill! But you’re so good as a writer, I guess you get off asserting your mental powers over others that get mad at you and don’t know how to subdue you with words that you think are yours alone. A day is coming when you will eat all those words you are writing when this government that has become a tyrant that needs to be removed from power! If not, your words won’t mean crap to them as you’ll be just another white man they want dead by a Black Lives Matter person, or a peace loving Muslim that doesn’t agree with our laws.

      Reply to Alex….You are SO WRONG ABOUT TRUMP. Whatever you know, is Liberal junk, he is not. How about B. Clinton dodging draft…We know he did that. If you think Hillary is best, you NEED TO GET REALLY INFORMED. But, not through the Democrat Party, Not through Google, Not through anything except Fox News…CNN wavers, back & forth, and the NY Times wavers back & forth…but these LIBERAL PRESS and LIBERAL TV Stations are NOT TELLING THE TRUTH….I know, I have a Democrat friend? and he listens to Obama telling us everything is ok, nation not in turmoil, as well as Hillary proclaiming the same. Hillary Clinton is a lying, totally irresponsible woman, a criminal as well as Bill Clinton. They have been doing rip offs to the American Public ever since before they got married. She was FIRED from her first job as a public defender, she was 26, not married to Bill C.: Broker FIRED her, released a public comment that she was a liar, did not honor the 2nd Amendment (40 years ago), was unreliable then and not now) and thus he FIRED her.

  • Mike

    You tell me which is worse! Reid implying Romney did not pay his taxes, knowing all along it was a lie OR George Will claiming Trump is working with the Russian to hack into the DNC data base? Which he knows is a lie!!
    George Will is an establishment shill who will go to any degree to prove his loyalty to the establishment GOP. Besides that, he’s an atheist. He doesn’t see the freedoms we have from our perspective.
    I could care less about him leaving the GOP! I might leave it myself. Only for different reasons. I’m tired of the lies and manipulative ways of the establishment. I don’t care if it survives or not! It’s their job to clean up this mess they’ve made.

They are making it worse, and it is spreading. They will do this until the morning of the election. Trump is a strong man, he will overcome this junk.

    • Alex Ferguson

      Don tRump is NOT going to “overcome this junk”. The ONLY way he might even have the sparest chance of a shot at victory would be to release his tax papers. He refuses, as they will show the world what many already know—-tRump is not a billionaire—and this getting out TERRIFIES him…………..

    Give me a break. I guarantee there are many things in Mr. Trumps tax returns that I ‘could’ not undahstand. Audit? What audit? Oh, President Obama’s Audit. Returns not to be expected of Mr. Trump while in litigation.

    What I’d like to see is tha content, fees for and by whom paid for Mrs. Clinton’s Wall Street speeches. How about tha complete financial records of tha Clinton Foundation?

    As for Mr. Will; good by to bad rubish.

  • Alex Ferguson

    With more and more Republicans coming to grips with the fact that their party has somehow nominated Don tRump—a greedy draft-dodging, misogynist, racist, rapist/wife-beater* who says he wants to do his own DAUGHTER, their stupid idea of “taking the country back” becomes more illusory. Not that it was ever gonna happen, but still—-with Hillary Clinton, the Fright Wing GOP was handed a GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY to regain the White guy’s House—not happening now, of course. Giving you nuts a pinata like Madame President-to-be Clinton to bash should have eased your way back in—instead of nominated someone with half a chance (John Kasich, most likely), you have shot your lips off. When you Conservatards fall awake on November the Ninth—remember—you REALLY had a chance–but blew it BIG TIME!

    Media should show the 20 th july on Sputnik, showing the beheading of a 12 y.o boy by the US rebels with a single knife just like Muslim do to sacrifice a lamb. horrible to see
    If so, citizens of the USA , they all gone vote Trump, Shame on Kerry, McCain, OBAMA CLINTON.
    Trump said it, leave Russia doe the job. Another loss for the USA.

  • Tennman39

    George Will has, for some time, shown a complete disassociation with the working class and has joined the elites as someone that is so much more intelligent than the Steelworkers, Coal Miners etc.. George has spent too much time admiring himself and ignoring that the things Mr. Trump is talking about are the very problems the Washington Insiders have ignored and allowed Obama to institute without authorization. George it’s time to retire or get on the Clinton campaign (with emphasis on Pain)!

  • 4USA2

    What a big disappointment George Wills is. Used to like him …now he should go campaign for Hillary and get out of PATRIOTIC voter’s faces! He should have watched the first night of the Democrat Convention …. not one American Flag was to be seen but those Democrats were waving Communist and Palestinian Flags both inside the convention hall and outside. Quite a picture of ANTI-AMERICAN people!
    Seems to me there was information a while ago that George Wills just found out he had a TWIN brother who lives in Russia. The two boys were adopted by different families, if I recall the article. So maybe that’s why he’s now saying unproven stuff about Russia and Trump?

    Gee whiz, back when Obama was running for President it was Obama that got caught on camera with an open mike, right before a meeting with the Russian President and Obama was about to start and Obama was patting President Medvedev and saying something like “after I’m elected I’ll have more flexibility…. yadada” and then an interpreter told Obama, “I’ll see to it Vladimir gets the message.” Seriously, George Wills, you are barking up the wrong tree with your unverified statements. And you also must have overlooked Hillary’s Uranium deal with Russia! And Russia passed that uranium onto Iran. You want to report Russian deals, there you are, two of them, so have it!
