What Will The Panama Papers Reveal About Donald Trump?

16 May 2016

Thom shares the news that Trump‘s name was found hundreds of times in the Panama Papers… what will those documents eventually reveal???

PANAMA PAPERS REVEAL TAX-DODGING BY AMERICANS “The Times’s examination of the files found that Mossack Fonseca also had at least 2,400 United States-based clients over the past decade, and set up at least 2,800 companies on their behalf in the British Virgin Islands, Panama, the Seychelles and other jurisdictions that specialize in helping hide wealth…the documents … show that the firm did much more than simply create offshore shell companies and accounts. For many of its American clients, Mossack Fonseca offered a how-to guide of sorts on skirting or evading United States tax and financial disclosure laws.” [NYT]

Rich Americans implicated in Panama Papers leak: Where’s the outrage? More than 2,000 Americans have been revealed to have availed themselves of the tax refuge services of the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca. With so much talk of inequality in the presidential race, why has there been so little discussion about this? Here.

  1. Donald Trump promised he would protect Social Security and Medicare.

    Not anymore! Now, his top advisor says Trump could cut our social safety programs — just like every other greedy Republican.

    TELL DONALD TRUMP: Don’t destroy Social Security and Medicare!

    Donald Trump’s newest enemy? Social Security and Medicare.

    His top advisor just said Trump could be willing to cut important programs like Social Security and Medicare — even though he spent months promising to protect them!

    It’s disgusting.

    Just like his Republican cronies, Trump could destroy our social safety net and throw seniors under the bus.

    We can’t let them threaten Social Security and Medicare and get away with it.

  2. Over the weekend, The New York Times published a horrifying account of Donald Trump in detail–a serial sexual harasser of women and perpetrator of sexual assault.1

    One woman recounts meeting him for the first time. “He kissed me directly on the lips.”

    Another recalls being humiliated by him. “I said, ‘I don’t want to do this, Mr. Trump.’ He said, ‘I don’t care.'”

    He is even worse than anyone ever thought. And if women voters are faced with the truth of who Donald Trump really is, we have a real chance of stopping him from winning in November–and the Republican National Committee knows that. If we raise a big enough outcry, the Republican Party will have to denounce Trump’s sexual assault and harassment of women–or lose women voters.

    Tell Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee:

    “Denounce Donald Trump’s sexual assault and harassment of women.”

    Sign the petition

    Trump is the Republican nominee–no one, Republican or Democrat, can afford to have top Republican officials dodge a presidential nominee’s record of abusing women. Luckily, several Republican officials have denounced and distanced themselves from Trump, including RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.

    But Chairman Priebus has yet to condemn Trump for harassment and assault, claiming just two days ago that “people just don’t care” about his horrible treatment of women.2 We need to show him he’s wrong–and force the Republican Party to stand with its women voters.

    Can you sign the petition demanding Reince Priebus to condemn Trump for sexual assault and harassment?

    Thanks for taking action.
