Tax firm ready to turn over 10 years of Trump’s financial records: Rep. Elijah Cummings

Published

on

On Wednesday, the tax firm Mazars USA said they are ready to turn over 10 years of President Donald Trump’s tax returns, according to Politico.

Mazars USA said they wanted the House Oversight and Reform Committee to issue a subpoena in order to make the process formal.

“Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) told reporters that Mazars USA, a tax and accounting firm, has asked the committee for a so-called ‘friendly’ subpoena so that it can formalize the process of complying with the panel’s request,” the report said.

“They have told us that they will provide the information pretty much when they have a subpoena. And we’ll get them a subpoena,” Cummings told reporters.

The request comes after Cummings launched a wide-ranging probe into Trump’s finances. Republicans have attacked the investigation as an effort to “solely embarrass President Trump and to advance the relentless Democrat attacks upon the Trump administration,” the report said.

Fox News hosts are going back to downplaying threat from coronavirus: report

Published

on

Major Fox News personalities like Sean Hannity spent weeks assuring viewers that the novel coronavirus wasn't a serious threat. In recent weeks, however, they have shifted to a different narrative, acknowledging that the virus is dangerous but giving President Donald Trump credit for taking action and criticizing Democrats' lack of action — even though many Democrats, in fact, warned the pubic first.

But according to The Daily Beast, even as there is no clear end to the crisis in sight, and even as the U.S. crosses 13,000 deaths, many Fox News hosts are going back to downplaying the virus, either telling viewers it wasn't as bad as advertised and urging the president to end public safety measures against it.

The dangers of Trump TV: MSNBC host hammers Fox News as ‘genuine public health threat’ amid pandemic

Published

on

Tuesday night, Fox News decided that all anyone needed to do is to pump Americans with a Malaria drug and send them back to work to save President Donald Trump's economy.

Speaking Wednesday night, MSNBC host Chris Hayes bashed the conservative network for downplaying the seriousness of coronavirus, saying that they are "a genuine public health threat."

While Trump has advisers like Dr. Anthony Fauci, he also has the unofficial advisers he sees on Fox News.

They "are coalescing around the idea the whole thing is just overblown and we need to pump everyone full of the malaria drug and get them back to work. This is what you heard if you watch trump tv just last night," Hayes said. He then played clips illustrating exactly that, with hosts ranting and raving about the virus not being as serious as the flu.

‘Don’t let him rewrite history’: GOP ex-congressman slams Trump for painting fewer than 100,000 COVID-19 deaths as a victory

Published

on

At Wednesday's coronavirus task force press conference, President Donald Trump reiterated his claim that if fewer than 100,000 Americans die from COVID-19, it will be a victory for him.

Former Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) had none of it.

He ignored the warnings. He ignored the scientists & doctors. He refused to prepare. He lied about the virus. This country wasn’t ready. People got sick. People died. People lost their jobs. Because he cared more about himself than the country.

Don’t let him rewrite history. https://t.co/9snqoJ1VQI
