Stand Up America Responds to New Allegations of Trump Tax Fraud
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Thursday, September 5, 2019
NEW YORK — After an investigative report from Mother Jones revealed new evidence that Donald Trump engaged in tax fraud, Stand Up America spokesperson Ryan Thomas released the following statement:
“This is yet another disgusting example of Donald Trump using dubious tax schemes—and potentially outright fraud—to game the system and get ahead.
“There are still too many questions left unanswered about Trump’s deeply troubling finances and massive conflicts of interest—and House Democrats must do everything in their power to get answers on behalf of the American people.
“If Donald Trump has nothing to hide, then today would be a great day for him to release his tax returns.”
At the federal level, Stand Up America has been one of the leading groups pushing Congress to obtain and release Trump’s tax returns—driving over 10,000 constituent calls to Congress demanding they be publicly released. In New York, Stand Up America also led the coalition that passed the TRUST Act, which could provide congressional investigators with Trump’s state taxes.
