What is Trump hiding…?

Dear Editor,

The president refuses to release his tax filings, which ALL candidates have done over the last 40 years. The government gets to see all of OUR tax records.

Why has the Trump Administration stopped making public White House visitor logs, which the Obama Administration allowed the public to see? What are they hiding?

Preet Bharara, the US attorney for the Southern District of New York, was asked by the Trump admin. to stay at his post. It was then revealed that Mr. Bharara’s office was overseeing an investigation into possible insider trading by the president’s health secretary, Tom Price. Mr. Bharara’s office was also looking into financial transactions Paul Manafort (one-time Trump campaign mgr.) had with the Bank of Cyprus (rumored money laundering). Trump commerce secretary Wilbur Ross was vice-chairman of the Bank of Cyprus. One of the largest banks lending hundreds of millions to Trump and his comrades (other than the Red Chinese gov.) is Deutsche Bank (convicted of tax fraud and insider trading). Some of those loans were transferred via Bank of Cyprus. Preet Bharara was fired by the Trump admin. in early March. What is the Trump admin. hiding?

Sally Q. Yates, the acting U.S. Attorney General at the time, and FBI Directer James B. Comey, became aware of National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s secret contacts with Russian agents. The FBI continues to investigate the contacts (fact) the Trump campaign had with the Russians. Ms. Yates was abruptly fired; Mr. Flynn was fired (only 18 days later); now Mr. Comey is fired. What is the Trump admin. hiding?

Mr. Manafort for years “neglected” to register as a foreign agent.  Mr. Flynn and newly appointed Attny General Jeff Sessions “forgot” about their contacts with the Russians. Drain the swamp? Ha! More like stocking the swamp.

Remember, the Trump/Kushner organizations are still making big money from their wide ranging businesses. They have NOT divested, their is NO blind trust. Each visit (7 times, 25 days) the president makes to Mar-a-Lago ($2 mill.+/- cost) is profit into Mr. Trump’s pockets.

What else is he hiding?
