Is Epstein-Like Behavior The Real Reason Trump Won’t Release His Tax Returns?

A YouTube video that was apparently uploaded way back in November 2016 is getting renewed attention in light of Jeffrey Epstein’s recent indictment for child sex trafficking. The video advances a provocative theory that Trump is hiding his tax returns because they contain details of numerous financial settlements he made to young female victims of sexual assault at his properties. Up until now the running narrative, at least the one espoused by the cable TV punditry class, is that Trump is hiding his tax returns because he doesn’t want details of his failed business ventures to become public. The troubling allegations in this video therefore represent a dramatic twist in the Trump tax return debate, one that begs for serious scrutiny especially in light of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.

The list of troubling allegations against Trump in this video is long but here are a few of them;

That in 1989, Trump entered into a $1 million settlement with the family of then 12 year old Kelly Feuer over an alleged sexual assault that happened at Trump Tower, New York.

That in 1993, Trump entered into a $16 million settlement with the family of then 12 year old Maria Olivera over an allegation of sexual assault that happened at Mar-a-Lago.

There is also an allegation of sexual assault by Trump and Epstein in 1994 against then 13 year old Katie Johnson at Epstein’s mansion in New York.

Whether the allegations contained in this bombshell video are true or not is another matter altogether and Yours Truly certainly is not putting them out there as proven facts. The point Yours Truly is making, which all reasonable people would agree with, is that if prosecutors at the Southern District of New York (SDNY) are currently pursuing Jeffrey Epstein for child sex trafficking and there are allegations like the ones above that seem to suggest that Trump may have engaged in similar conduct, then SDNY necessarily has to investigate the allegations in this video.

Why should the public believe in the time-honored legal principle of “equal justice under law” proudly emblazoned on courts across the country including the U.S. Supreme Court, if SDNY chooses to Pursue Epstein on charges that threaten to imprison him for life while at the same time totally overlooking similar allegations in the same New York jurisdiction made against his old friend Trump? Don’t the allegations contained in this video compel the good folks at SDNY to pore through Trump’s tax returns and verify whether (a) such settlements did indeed take place and (b) whether they were for the alleged criminal acts?

Bottom line, Americans are losing confidence in the ability of the criminal justice system to pursue rich and powerful people for conduct that regular people would never get away with, in this case sexual assault/trafficking of minors. The news that SDNY has decided to pursue rich and powerful Epstein is a welcome breath of fresh air and represents a slight uptick in the people’s confidence in the justice system. One only hopes that prosecutors at SDNY will further solidify the people’s confidence in the justice system by also looking into the Epstein-like conduct alleged against Trump in this troubling YouTube video, and specifically, that they will pore through Trump’s elusive tax returns to see whether (a) the alleged financial settlements took place and (b) whether they were for the alleged criminal conduct. The interests of justice dictate that these troubling questions be resolved once and for all instead of being left to rumors/speculation on social media. The innocent victims of these horrific crimes deserve no less from SDNY.

    1. There’s no smoke without fire Dick. Trump’s tax returns would leave a paper-trail, that reveals how degenerate, this excuse for a human being is. ‘TDS’ is a pathetic term, used by the protagonist to deflect from their own cognitive dissonance.

    2. What happened to the Epstein case, anyway? I’m going to see what is the last update. Y’all crack me up with the TDS thing. 🤣🤣🤣

    3. Ya – except that…he has several rape charges waiting for him when he steps down. Will be interesting for sure….If it walks like a pig and talks like a pig – it’s a pig.

    1. Actually it’s true – and they knew it before he was elected. These are still awaiting him when he steps down. He is no innocent man – on any level.

  1. The reason Trump doesn’t want his tax returns seen is that he lies about income in order to pay lower taxes. When he values his properties for loans, he exaggerates, when he files taxes, he under values. I think that is pretty obvious. It is what he does on his state taxes which have been released and commented on. That video names a bunch of people, including boys, who it claims got settlement payments from Trump. But included in all settlements are non-disclosure agreements. There is no way that whomever made that video would have access to any of that information. Trump is a criminal and is also a POS in general, but I think that video is garbage.

  2. Waterbury, CT March 20, 1993, last seen outside Nash’s Pizza and Grocery.

    And yeah, SDNY has ALL the documents about what Trump did to that girl in 1994 at Wexler’s place with Epstein a year after she was kidnapped, as Mueller got them the day the OCS was established.

  3. Well, if there wasn’t anything to hide, he would’ve released them by now and would have been crowing from the tops of the rooftops about how awesome his tax returns were. Bigly. THINK ABOUT IT.

    1. You have to be convicted first… Hence the payments… Ie he gives them millions they don’t go to court and promise to shut up and speak to anyone about it or they can be instantly sued into the stone ages and end up with nothing.

  5. These are assertions, not proved “facts.” They may well be true, and we shall see. To say that “the media” does not want them to come out is just plain stupid.

    1. lol what do you even know who the so called “media” is you just think they tell us the news as a job? no they are forced to manipulate the masses by the people who pay them, think sheep that statement didnt even make sense like how is that stupid explain
