Reichert Votes Against Trump Tax Release

March 15, 2017

Dave Reichert (WA-08), yes our 8th district WA Congressmen does not want a investigation on Donald Trump. This was not about a public release of Trumps taxes, it was a private release to the House Ways and Means Committee for their investigation. This guy has got to go! Just because he is from Washington State does not mean he represents you, he is a party republican.

Well this is the release:

Subject: March Madness: Faxing Down the 23 Republicans Blocking the Release of Trump’s Taxes
To: Judy Lightfoot <>

23 Republican Representatives voted NO to an amendment which would have enabled the House Ways and Means Committee to privately examine Trump’s tax returns to determine if there are conflicts of interest.  WE ARE NOT GOING TO LET THE 23 REPUBLICANS GET AWAY WITH THIS!  So here is the plan, let’s send a mass of coordinated faxes to the 23 Republicans that they will not be able to ignore!  Let’s make this a national campaign:  forward this email to anyone you think will help the cause!

Here are the scripts:

Script #1:

We, the American People, denounce, you personally as a House Republican for enabling Donald Trump to hide his tax returns.  We, the American People, have NO CONFIDENCE in you to represent us.  We, the American People, demand that you allow the House Ways and Means Committee to view Trump’s Taxes!!  We, the American people, are watching every one of your political actions and we are keeping track of your votes.  If you want our vote at your reelection, you will allow the House Ways and Means Committee to view Trump’s taxes.  

Script #2:

Shame, shame, shame on you!!!  70+% of Americans want Trump to release his taxes. 

Donald Trump is the first President (or presidential nominee) in 40+ years to refuse to publicly disclose his tax returns.  The American public deserves to know!  But you wouldn’t even allow members of Congress to view his tax returns PRIVATELY and in CLOSED SESSION to check for any potential conflicts of interest.

Shame on you for enabling Trump’s bad behavior.

Your NO vote will come back to haunt you when YOU ask the American People for their vote to reelect you.  Their answer will be a resounding NO, YOU’RE FIRED!!!


 Step 3:

Celebrate!  We are making a difference!
