William Barr shut down Nancy Pelosi with this piece of paper

Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats thought they were about to get their hands on a smoking gun.

This would be the evidence that would lead directly to Donald Trump’s impeachment.

But William Barr just shut down Nancy Pelosi with this bombshell piece of paper.

Under the direction of Nancy Pelosi, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal employed a rarely used 1920s law to demand Donald Trump turn over six-years-worth of tax returns.

Democrats figured Trump was cornered and they would finally get to make Donald Trump’s tax returns public to expose financial wrongdoing.

But William Barr and the Department of Justice shut down this charade.

The Justice Department issued a legal memo outlining why Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin should reject the Democrats request on the basis that the Democrats had no legitimate reason for obtaining them other than to leak the returns and make them public.

“The Chairman did not explain why, if the Committee were sincerely interested in understanding how the IRS audits presidential tax returns, he needed to review President Trump’s tax returns for many years before his presidency. Nor did the Chairman request any information concerning the IRS’s actual policies or practices governing presidential audits or the audit histories for any President other than President Trump,” the DOJ’s memo explained.

“In view of these marked discrepancies in the public record, Treasury, quite reasonably, concluded that Chairman Neal had not articulated the real reason for his request. The Chairman’s request that Treasury turn over the President’s tax returns, for the apparent purpose of making them public, amounted to an unprecedented use of the Committee’s authority and raised a serious risk of abuse,” the memo added.

This threw a serious monkey wrench into Pelosi’s plans.

Pelosi hoped getting the tax returns would be enough to keep pro-impeachment Democrats at bay.

The Speaker reasoned that if she could show progress on investigations, it would be enough to show impeachment was not necessary because Democrats could use the resulting negative headlines to drive down Trump’s support and defeat him at the ballot box in 2020.

But that strategy is out the window now, and the longer the investigations are tied up in court the more enraged Democrats in the House will become.

And that could make impeachment inevitable.

  7. Carl says:

    Every day Nasty Nancy and the democrats come up with a way to impeach Trump but as usual they have nothing. They are just wasting tax payers money.

    • Patricia says:

      How dare these vile cabal criminals demand Trumps taxes! They won’t show theirs because they know they have screwed the american people and committed tax evasion for years! This would never bring down Trumps base because they have been exposed for their criminal acts such as Omar, Cummings, and God knows what other criminal acts would show up in Pelosi, Chuckies and all the other house criminals!

      • Nellie says:

        Nancy and son were involved in some kind of scam. Hard to tell who’s paying her to keep on impeachment. One thing, people in CA are fed up. The needs to be removed from any government office. She should be investigated for voting fraud in her district. Trump 2020

    • Centurion says:

      Isn’t her name Nazi Pelozi? But I might be wrong.

    • Wyantry says:

      If Trump was really clever, he might AGREE to reveal his tax returns, on the condition that ALL PUBLICLY ELECTED OR APPOINTED PERSONS must release their tax returns as well.

      If this were somehow POLICY it would shut down the carping democraps! Maybe by executive action?

    Would it be possible for you to make the font type darker for easier reading?

  10. Milton K. LaDue says:

    There is nothing in Donald Trump’s PERSONNEL tax returns that is terribly hard to figure out. I seriously doubt he would fill out a 1040. The 1040A meanwhile would have to be read/interpreted, which even a DemonRat could figure out in a little over a month. Me? A couple of hours. However, his business tax returns could be a stack of papers 6-12 inches thick. THOSE tax returns will require a team of accountants to figure out. Even with fact-checking his 1040A would take a team of accounts, less than a week.

  11. neo says:

    What raises the red flag at the IRS is they have a percentage chart that if you make this you should pay between this and this is determined by amount of income….when you skew out side those percentages it automatically kicks out and you are audited ….

  12. neo says:

    With as many of Obozo’s left overs running around in D.C. I am sure if there were any kind of suspicious entries in Trump’s 1040s it would of leaked by now….Trump like so many Americans, uses a licensed CPA to fill out his returns and they are NOT going to falsify his records because they could lose their license and probably be subject to jail time or fines.

  13. dr says:

    I have confidence that the IRS has already scrutinized all Trumps tax returns and if found anything would have already over the years had any discrepancies resolved. Pelosi and the long time demobats who started with little money and gained millions should have their tax returns visible for us to see.

  14. richard nicoletti says:

    Why are Trump’s tax returns anybody’s business, but his own? Do you want everyone having information about your tax returns? How about your next-door neighbor?
    Should your neighbor know all about your tax returns? The prez’s personal business belongs to him, just as your does. Just because he’s a public figure doesn’t mean that he should lose his right to privacy any more than you should.

    I’m more interested in the tax returns of career politicians. Both federal & state.

  16. Jan13 says:

    I’m more interested in the tax returns of House & Senate members . Especially those in office more than 2 terms .

  17. Jan13 says:

    I’m more interested in the tax returns of House & Senate members . Especially those in office more than 2 terms , when most had modest incomes and now are multi millionaires.

  18. ONTIME says:

    Should the DIMMs be serious about impeachment, the can of worms to be opened is going to create a firestorm the left will be unable to stem….The President’s legal defense has the right to call as many and any witness to create their defense for the defendant thus making a situation of “under oath” questioning for any and all sworn witnesses, they would be under the rule of perjury and the DIMMs could suddenly find themselves defendants…..the left politically is already crapping little green apples, the DOJ is closing in fast now and they are hysterical, should they fold, the swamp and Clinton Crime Cartel would be open to full investigation and the black curtain the subversives use to hide will be removed….it would be like a turkey shoot at this point….

    She(Nancy Pelosi) and Adam Shifti Shifft need to go to jail for Treason ,Sedition and trying to assinate our President Donald J. Trump

  20. Deplorable Lanie says:

    The thought that the Dems would be able to understand President Trump’s tax returns, let alone “supervise” the IRS’s audit of his returns is absolutely laughable! They have no idea, they just want the returns so they can say “ah-HA” look at that! And what ever it is that they are pointing at will be a great big nothing burger! Personally, I think the Dems are just “sure” there is something in his taxes, otherwise why wouldn’t he just give them? But DJT doesn’t just hand over anything! He makes you work for every little bit of information. And then when they get it, it will be so anti-climactic that they won’t be able to show their faces! Remember, President Trump plays chess, Democrats play checkers!

  21. Candice says:

    9 out of 10 ordinary citizens and congressmen and congresswomen would not have an iota of a clue on how to understand President Trump’s tax returns…then and now. That being said, this is just another straw in hopes of bringing down our great President. Let’s face it…they are never going to stop and we have six, yes, six more years of this crap with which to contend! What’s next? Lay it on Lefties because WE are strong and mighty Deplorables and will neither stoop to nor succumb to your despicable levels and tactics.

  22. Pat says:

    Yes, you are right. Mr Barr is probably hiding some things. BUT, I would not call it hiding. It is “holding back” After all the investigations are done, that which Barr is holding back will be a “smoking gun”. That smoking gun will be what will take down all of the criminals in the Russian Collusion along with taking down key people in the Democratic Party as well as all of the Democrats. Barr is extremely intelligent. He knows the law inside out and knows the Constitution Of the United States which is more than you know and you evidently do not want to know and just want to rant and rave with all of you might to destroy the Republicans and Conservatives! Unless you can come on this channel with the real truth, I suggest you stay off it and stop reporting to the Democrats in Congress trying to ruin democracy and the American people. Stay with your own country and just move back there. You just may find yourself arrested for your hateful attitudes toward us. You do not belong here. Get it? You better!

  23. Gregory Sullivan says:

    Trump knows that he has done nothing wrong and is fed up with this never-ending witch hunt. It’s his right to refuse to show his tax returns to anyone as it’s nobody business but his own.

  24. Vasu Murti says:

    The only paper William Barr needs to provide is the entire unredacted Mueller report! Trump’s hand-picked Attorney General William Barr finally released Robert Mueller’s report — but it was incomplete.

    Does it concern you that Barr is hiding key parts of Robert Mueller’s investigation from the public? What is the Trump Administration hiding from the American people, besides Trump’s tax returns?

    For the past forty years, it’s tradition that presidential nominees of both major parties release multiple years of their tax returns. They do this in part to guarantee to the public that there are no conflicts of interest.

    Donald Trump is refusing to, hiding behind a phony excuse that he can’t until the IRS finishes auditing him, a claim directly refuted by the IRS. What’s worse, in 2012, Trump was leading a call for the Republican presidential candidate that year, Mitt Romney, to release his own tax returns. As usual, Trump doesn’t want to be held to the unforgiving standards by which he judges other people.

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

    • Emil Geverd says:

      instead of worrying about Trump’s tax returns, the democrats should be thanking the Lord the Hillary wasn’t elected president. And then, once they got off their knees, they should spend a little bit of time trying to solve the problems that Obama created for the country during is 8 years of mismanagement and bowing down to our enimies and friends alike.

    • Bill says:

      If the AG would have released the entire report reacted, the dems would have impeached him for breaking the law. He is not a political hack but a jurist that follows the law to the letter. As it was, the committee heads could go view it in the skiff at the DOJ. They did not. Grand jury reports are classified and not to be released.
      Here is a real question for your ignorant jazz. What past AG was not hand picked by the POTUS? All are hand picked and confirmed by the Senate.

    • Randy Humphries says:

      You’re a useless troll, Trump has done more for this country in 2 1/2 years than your savior did in 8. In fact, reversing regulations of your savior is what put this country back to work. Didn’t Obama say “it would take a magic wand to bring back manufacturing jobs”? Well I guess the Donald found that magic wand because those jobs have come back! As far as gun control, gun control is hitting your target! If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns! I’m sorry, I’ll keep mine. Legal guns aren’t the problem, it’s the illegal guns in the hands of criminals that gives legal gun owners the bad rap. I have 5 guns in my possession, none of them have shot anyone, must be lazy, they are always loaded but haven’t shot anyone. It’s not the guns moron, it’s the person behind it that pulls the trigger. When will you airheads understand that fact? Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, how is that working out for ya? Then comes California, lots of shooting there too. None of these shootings have anything to do with the NRA, but they get the blame. Only time the NRA had anything to do with a shooting was when a NRA member stopped a church shooter in Texas. Get a grip troll. Demonrats have destroyed this country in the past 8 years, Trump is correcting your blunders. Obama took race relations back 50 years, more racists in your party than ours, that’s a fact, Al Sharpton is the worst, next to Farrikan. Hopefully the people will wake up in 2020 and vote out all you ignorant demonrats!

    Pelosi is definitely the wicked witch of the West. She lives in the few states that will accept her. A Sanctuary State until the illegals camp out in front of her walled house. Wonder what she would do if the homeless she helped to create wanted to pitch tents in her front yard. Or the illegals asking her to feed their families. These moron officials have no problem spouting out to the fake news how terrible Our President is – ask her if she is donating her salary to motiveless causes. She is nothing more than Soros’s talking head. What a waste of clean air every time she takes a breath. Really where did I say this b

      Maybe ALL elected officials should make their tax returns public. I still want to know how Pelosi and Waters became so wealthy by being elected representatives for over 40 years each. Even AOC complains about the cost of living in DC. Pelosi and Waters have done it for YEARS and had no trouble “saving up” a fortune.

  28. The democRATS are trying hard to oust Trump, now they have come up with a BS plan to vote for slavery reparation in order to get the black people to vote for them, too many black people have seen what Trump has done for them and they are leaving the democRATS behind because they realize the y have been lied to over and over

  29. SERGIO V FLORES says:

    Hey dems, AG Barr doesn’t have to act like the President’s personal lawyer. All he has to do is apply the law equally in which the dems does not do. Dems try to change the laa to support their agenda. That is sickening! Dems have a double standard when applying the law. Why? They are lawless!

    • Jobert Ronson says:

      Jerry Young: Not only is the democrat party lawless — they are, get this, godless!!! That party removed god from their platform of beliefs during the last presidential caucus. Now the real lawless, godless agenda of the democrats is unmasked!!!

  34. No show says:

    Poor Democrats their grasp on reality is extremely precarious there is no law nor requirement for the president to make his tax returns public.

  35. Eleanor says:

    So sick of the Democrats. They have done absolutely nothing for the people of this country. All they have done is abstruct everything Prresident Trump has tried to do and have spent time and our tax dollars trying to dig up anything they can find to impeach him. They are the ones that should be investigated and many should be in jail for treason and some for murder.

  36. David D Engberg says:

    I want to know how Pelosi’s net worth grew to $150M on a government salary.
