Washington Post columnist warns release of Trump’s tax returns will open ‘a Pandora box of scandals’

Published

President Donald Trump’s White House has been criticized this week for his chaotic leadership style and multiple scandals unfolding nearly every day.

One scandal still hovering around the White House is Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns.

“There’s ordinary White House chaos, and then there’s Trump White House chaos,” wrote Paul Waldman, opinion writer for The Washington Post.

“New reporting paints a picture of the administration descending into a Thunderdome of backstabbing and resentment as staffers jockey for position or wonder whether they should get the heck out, all presided over by an erratic, unhappy president,” he said.

Waldman then explained that after the midterm elections Trump’s behavior has gotten even more unprecedented. He noted that Trump fears a Democratic House, and what they might do with their new found power.

He said that if Democrats get their hands on Trump’s tax returns that it might open up a “Pandora’s box of scandal.”

“Nothing is more upsetting to Trump than being considered a loser, even temporarily. But I suspect that the prospect of having his tax returns made public has him even more frightened,” he wrote.

Waldman added, “We don’t know what they will reveal, but suffice to say that no sane person believes that all we’ll discover when they’re opened up is that Trump took advantage of some loopholes and did some creative accounting here and there.”

He said, “Everything we know about Trump’s career — not least the recent revelation that he and his family engaged in a years-long conspiracy to commit tax fraud on an absolutely massive scale — suggests that those returns will be a Pandora’s box of scandal.”

Yesterday, a judge paused Mary Trump's tell-all book on President Donald Trump and his family, but Wednesday evening, a New York appellate judge ruled that Simon & Schuster could move forward with releasing the book.

According to the New York Times, Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man will be released in four weeks, on schedule.

"Justice Alan Scheinkman’s ruling, however, put off addressing a central aspect of the bitter spat about the manuscript that has been roiling all month in the Trump family: whether, by writing the book, Ms. Trump violated a confidentiality agreement put in place nearly 20 years ago after a struggle over the will of her grandfather, Fred Trump Sr., Donald Trump’s father," the report said.
