Romney Hopes POTUS Will Disclose Tax Returns, but Claims Dems Are ‘Moronic’ for Trying to Force It

@MeetThePress/Twitter

Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said on Sunday that he hoped President Donald Trump would release his tax returns but slammed the Democrats’ attempt to force the disclosure through legislative action as “moronic.”

While appearing on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press,” Romney — the Republican junior senator from Utah — expressed his hope that the president will “follow through” on his promise to release his tax returns and slammed Democrats as “playing right into his handbook.”

He then torched the Democrats’ plan to see Trump’s tax returns by asking IRS Chairman Charles Rettig to turn them over as “moronic.”

“[The president] said he would be happy to release his returns. So I wish he’d do that. But I have to also tell you: I think the Democrats are just playing along his handbook. Which is, going after his tax returns through legislative action is moronic. That’s not going to happen.”

Watch the clip here:

Romney continued on to say that the president would “win this victory” as “the courts are not going to say that you can compel a person running for office to release their tax returns.”

“He wins them time after time,” the Utah senator added. “The Green New Deal, all these candidates out there talking about getting rid of Obamacare and traditional health care and putting in place Medicare.”

He then slammed the ideas of Medicare-for-All and the Green New Deal as “non-starters” and that “the Democratic party is finding itself in a real difficult position with those kinds of positions.”

Romney — who was the Republican nominee for president in 2012 against former President Barack Obama — has pushed for the president to release his tax returns in the past. He said during the 2016 presidential campaign that he thought there was “good reason to believe” a “bombshell” existed somewhere in Trump’s tax returns.

Trump’s tax returns are no one’s business except his and the IRS. This is all too obvious an attempt to manufacture something to unseat a duly elected President since the Dems/Socialists have not accepted their “Queen’s” loss of the 2016 election. Appears they will have another 6 years to pitch their infantile temper tantrums. Will keep their shrinks in beans, though.

How did turning over your taxes and binders work for you Mitt?

On one hand you hope he turns them over. On the other you hope the Dims won’t use them against him.

You are self-contradicting you RINO marshmallow.
