Pascrell Comments on Bombshell NYT Report
Washington, May 7, 2019
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-NJ-09) reacted to the bombshell New York Times investigation revealing more than a billion dollars in losses for Donald Trump between 1985 and 1994. The shocking report also revealed that Trump was able to avoid paying taxes for years.
"We can draw two primary conclusions from this blockbuster report. First, Donald Trump's entire tenure is built upon the most colossal fraud in American political history. As these records make clear, Trump was perhaps the worst businessman in the world. His entire campaign was a lie. He didn’t pay taxes for years and lost over one billion dollars — how is that possible? How did he keep getting more money and where on earth was it all going? We need to know now.
"Second, we must still see Trump's actual returns over the last generation. The IRS must abide by the legal requirement to provide them as requested under Section 6103(f). We now have another part of the truth. We need a lot more.”
