It appears that Hillary Clinton is no stranger to the tax avoidance loophole that Donald Trump is being excoriated for. Hillary’s loss was “only” $700,000. No normal taxpayer ever sees a $770K loss and survives. Hillary received that same tax break that the Clinton Campaign called a “scheme” when the Donald used it. Do not expect this to receive widespread coverage from the media arm of the Clinton Campaign machine. Share it with your friends.
As Written By Tyler Durden for Zero Hedge:
Well this is a little awkward. With the leaked 1995 Trump tax returns ‘scandal’ focused on the billionaire’s yuuge “net operating loss” and how it might have ‘legally’ enabled him to pay no taxes for years, we now discover none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton utilized a $700,000 “loss” to avoid paying some taxes in 2015.
The Clinton Campaign was quick to jump on the leaked Trump tax filing with Robby Mook tweeting…
Trump "apparently got to avoid paying taxes for nearly two decades—while tens of millions of working families paid theirs." pic.twitter.com/g62jB9fKr5

And Hillary following up, adding Trump “apparently got to avoid paying taxes for nearly two decades—while tens of millions of working families paid theirs.”
However, a look back at Hillary Clinton’s tax returns from 2015 (here), proudly displayed by the campaign proving she has nothing to hide – shows something awkward on page 17.
