Trump tweets that he will release 'financial statement' before 2020 election

WASHINGTON, Nov 21 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump, facing lawsuits and political demands to release his U.S. tax returns and other financial information, said on Thursday he will release a statement on his finances before the presidential election, and asserted that it was his call on providing the information.

"I’m clean, and when I release my financial statement (my decision) sometime prior to election, it will only show one thing - that I am much richer than people even thought - And that is a good thing," Trump said in a post on Twitter, providing no details on his claims of wealth.

Trump also said Special Counsel Robert Mueller's two-year investigation into Russian interference in elections, which most recently led to the criminal conviction of Trump's former adviser Roger Stone, showed that his finances were in order.

Mueller "went over all of my financials, & my taxes, and found nothing. Now the Witch Hunt continues with local New York Democrat prosecutors going over every financial deal I have ever done. This has never happened to President before. What they are doing is not legal," Trump wrote.

Trump, an international hotelier and former reality TV star, is the first major-party presidential candidate since Gerald Ford in 1976 not to release his tax returns.

Last week a federal judge dismissed New York's attorney general and state tax commissioner as defendants in Trump's lawsuit seeking to block a congressional committee from obtaining his New York state tax returns. New York passed a law earlier this year that would allow the committee to access Trump's state tax returns.

Meanwhile an appeals court in New York has ruled that Trump’s longtime accounting firm must hand over eight years of his tax returns to New York prosecutors. (Reporting by Lisa Lambert; Additional reporting by Jonathan Stempel; Editing by Toby Chopra)

This promise sounds familiar like the tax break for the middle class?

How many times during the last campaign did he promise to release his taxes?

Either it is another lie and nothing gets released, or he will dictate a letter for some CPA to sign and release.

Remember another statement he had released....:

Even funnier? Why didn't he release his finances to the House when it was requested? Went all the way to the SCOTUS....but if he is going to release them....why go to the SCOTUS to protect them? 

And funnier than that? Many on the right will believe this lie, just like the lie he told before the election in 2016. Trump lies with impunity and many on the right just gobble it up.

he has released what he is legally required to release.

Just because some nosy Nellies WANT to see his returns don't have anything to do with people having some legal right to see them.
