ELECTORAL INTERFERENCE: Democrats Push to Throw Trump Off 2020 Ballot in 18 States
Now that FBI spook Robert Mueller’s Russian collusion investigation is over and yielded no evidence implicating President Trump, Democrats have moved onto Trump’s tax returns as the bogeyman threatening our electoral integrity.
Today would be a good day for @realDonaldTrump to release his tax returns.

The next legal battle will be over Trump's tax returns. Trump lawyers advancing novel theory that Congress's "shall" power is subject to unwritten limits. The job of arguing that bad theory is tougher after Mueller's evidence of Trump corruption and dishonsty

Democratic-run states are even willing to jeopardize the integrity of the 2020 presidential election over their new witch hunt against the President. Eighteen liberal states are threatening to remove Trump from the ballot in 2020 if he does not release his tax returns.
The National Conference of State Legislatures reports on the Democratic collusion that may impact the next presidential election:
“As of February 20, 2017 legislators in 18 states (Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia) have introduced bills” to require “future presidential candidates to disclose income tax returns in order to be placed on the general election ballot.”
The Illinois Senate has already passed one version of the bill that would force candidates for president and vice president to submit the previous five years of tax returns that will be viewable to the public on the secretary of state webpage.
“If you have nothing to hide, you shouldn’t worry about anything,” said Democratic state Sen. Tony Munoz on the Senate floor, arguing for his electoral interference scheme.
Republican state Sen. Dale Righter noted that there have been two Supreme Court rulings that would make a measure such as this unconstitutional. He cited Anderson v. Celebrezze (1983) and Williams v. Rhodes (1968) where SCOTUS ruled that it is illegal and unconstitutional for states to alter national ballot qualifications as the Democrats are trying to accomplish with their arbitrary power-grab.
“This is, quite frankly, with all due respect to the sponsor, an embarrassing waste of the Senate’s time,” Righter said.
The Democrats have shown their willingness to exhaust the time, money, and patience of the American public as they desperately try to undo the 2016 presidential election and stop Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda. If they cannot get the public to care about this tax return hoax, they will concoct another Alinskyist scam as they cling to what’s left of their power.
