Manafort: Trump Still Not Going To Release His Tax Returns

Paul Manafort, chair of the Donald Trump campaign, said on Wednesday morning that Trump still has no plans to release his tax returns despite questions about potential business dealings with Russian interests.

During an interview on CBS’ “This Morning,” co-host Norah O’Donnell noted that Trump has said that he does not have any investments in Russia.

“But does Russia have investments in Trump?” she then asked. “Would Mr. Trump be willing to release his tax returns to provide transparency on this issue?”

Manafort did not say whether Russia has invested in Trump, but said that the Republican nominee still has no plans to release his tax returns.

“Mr. Trump has said that his taxes are under audit, and he will not be releasing them,” he said. “It has nothing to do with Russia. It has nothing to do with any country other than the United States and his normal tax auditing processes.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
