It's another establishment hit on Donald Trump.
Trump declared a $916 million loss on his 1995 income tax return, a tax deduction so substantial it could have allowed him to legally avoid paying any federal income taxes for up to 18 years, reports The New York Times.
I doubt this will sway many Trump supporters to give up support. Voters know that he is a slick operator. If anything, the release supports the idea that Trump plays in the big leagues.
But the hits will intensify over the next couple of weeks. This is Hillary putting her opposition research on Trump into play. The tax documents were mailed last month to Susanne Craig, a reporter at The Times who has written about Trump’s finances, says the paper.
I'm expecting similar to be launched by the Trump campaign, but there is no indication that he has spent as much on Hillary oppo research nor does it appear has he planned out as disciplined of a release campaign as Hillary. He may be counting to a significant degree on whatever Wikileaks releases.
