In today’s episode, we take a look at one of your most requested questions: what might be in Donald Trump’s taxes!
We begin, however, with a preliminary question from Jim Sabatowski, who asks us what’s the big deal with Trump’s tax returns, anyway? Is there a good reason to think we can get information that’s necessary to evaluate a candidate?
Next, we give you part one of our two-part interview Tony Di Fatta, a practicing CPA, to take a deep-dive into all the things we might — and might not — find in the event that Donald Trump’s taxes are ever disclosed. All of this is meant to shed some light on the question: should Democrats be focused on finding out what’s in Trump’s taxes?
After our main segment, we inaugurate a new segment about how close President Trump is to impeachment with a question about 18 USC § 1001 and the prohibition against making false statements. With a bonus reference to The Price Is Right!
Finally, we end with the answer to Thomas Takes the Bar Exam question #11 about the best evidence rule. Remember that TTTBE issues a new question every Friday, followed by the answer on next Tuesday’s show. Don’t forget to play along by following our Twitter feed (@Openargs) and/or our Facebook Page and quoting the Tweet or Facebook Post that announces this episode along with your guess and reason(s)!
Thomas was interviewed by Conatus News about the development of the atheist community on the internet, including the role played by his other podcast, Serious Inquiries Only.
Andrew was a guest on the David Pakman show; you can watch the 14-minute video interview here.
Andrew was also a guest on the Biskeptical Podcast, episode #19, with Trav Mamone and Morgan Stringer, discussing free speech and Milo Yiannopolous.
