    As reported:

    Republican vice-presidential nominee Gov. Mike Pence on Sunday suggested a federal investigation into whether Hillary Clinton, during her tenure as secretary of state, provided political favors to foreign donors to her family’s Clinton Foundation, saying “the American people have a right to know.”

    “It looks that way more and more every day,” Pence said. “That's what we need to find out. … This is exactly the kind of pay to play politics the American people are sick and tired of. It is just one more example of the way I do believe that the Clintons have been operating over the last 30 years.”

    He also argued that some FBI officials wanted an investigation, but President Obama's Department of Justice “apparently has shut that down.”

    Be a bit more specific. Have you read Hillary's tax returns?

    I don't need to be specific. I works like to review whatever is made public. If like Trump to stop hiding behind a be excuse of his audit. Put up or shut up.

    I don't disagree but I think he's made it clear he isn't going to until he's ready and/or done with the audi, etc. Not sure why anyone is still asking him. He's answered the question.

    You do need to be specific. If the only reason you're looking for a candidate to release their tax returns is for political purposes in order to claim transparency, and have little desire to actually read them, then what's the point?

    Hillary has released decades of tax returns. How many have you read? Do you have any interest in the actual information or just for your candidate to proclaim transparency?

    No you want me to be specific. Want and need are two different things. I owe you nothing. I want to see his more recent returns.

    Usually people have a reason for wanting to do something.

    he has made it clear he is not going too. the adult is just an excuse to not do it. I know you can justify it cause you love him so much.

    I'm not justifying his reasoning but I'm not going belabor the fact that he's given his answer and it seems no one is listening or willing to accept that he's told them to go pound sand. It's his prerogative to not release it and accept the consequences. If he wants to claim it's the advice of his legal counsel then that's his right.

    You know the answer: so that we can see what he's hiding. You know damn well it's not all peaches and cream.

    Where did I say I believe him and what he has said around his taxes and the reasoning?

    I can't be any more clear than I've been, he's given his answer which is he's not going to release them, he's apparently willing to deal with losing votes or garnering crap for his stance and that it's a topic that's been beaten to death IMO. Seems some just can't get enough of him or his points. LOL. Do they not understand that's what he wants?

    In the end, I really don't give a hoot about the taxes of either of them.

    Although, I have to wonder. If we start this investigation, then shouldn't we investigate nearly every member of Congress?

    Then I ask again. What do you hope to see from his tax return? If you're saying he's hiding something then you must have an idea what.

    Trump tax release is equivalent to pay for play international influence peddling while Secretary of State and its general conflict of interest?

    How would you be able to tell without both being released. One might be nothing, the other might be a bombshell. They might both be nothing. They might both be bombshells

    The same thing anyone wants when anyone asks for what is known as "transparency", perhaps?
