Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said she has information about Trump avoid taxes by having his income dumped into his charitable foundation.
Waters said on All In with Chris Hayes, “This president has lied about his tax returns. He said that were being audited, and because of that, he could not share them. But he’s never intended to share his tax returns because he knows we’re going to find out a lot about him the lies he’s been telling. What I really want to know is whether or not he performed services that he got paid for he did not want to pay taxes and told people to put the money in the foundation. I’ve even got calls for people close to this information sharing it with me and it may be information I give to the Ways and Means Committee. We’ll see how to work it, but there’s a lot of information about how it was used or misused.”

Maxine Waters Is Accusing Trump Of Tax Fraud
Rep. Waters chairs the House Banking Committee, so any information that she has related to Trump misusing his foundation to dodge taxes would have to be turned over to the Ways and Means Committee. Waters was correct. Trump‘s tax returns are likely to reveal a laundry list of financial crimes. Sen. Richard Blumenthal has stated that Congress will be looking at Trump for bank fraud, tax fraud, insurance fraud, and defrauding the US government.
The problem for Trump as pointed out by Michael Cohen is that the fraud didn’t stop when Trump entered politics. The statute of limitations is not up on Trump‘s potential crimes, which is why Trump is so desperate to win a second term. The only thing standing between Trump and a criminal indictment is the presidency.
Evidence of Trump‘s criminal activity is everywhere. Maxine Waters is now Trump‘s worst nightmare. Waters in power, and using her position to dig up the truth about Trump.
