Over the weekend the New York Times broke the story about Trump taking over $900 million in business losses in the mid-90s and may have used the IRS loss carryover rule to avoid paying taxes in subsequent years, possibly 20 years. The practice is completely legal, but that didn’t stop Hillary’s attacks.
However, it turns out that Hillary did the EXACT SAME THING with her taxes, yet she, and her liberal media puppets, attack Trump for it? The hypocrisy is thick with this one.
Zero Hedge reports,
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…
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…
Hillary Clinton’s legal use of U.S tax laws are the exact same as Trump’s, it’s just on a smaller scale.
It’s very clear that Hillary is simply trying to attack Trump with hypocritical claims while keeping America in the dark about her own actions.
Point is, Trump broke no laws whatsoever with how he took the losses on his taxes.
