Mr. Trump refused to release his tax returns. He said he could not because he was being audited. This is nonsense. A taxpayer need not refuse to release tax returns because he’s in an audit. No law compels a taxpayer to release returns. Mr. Trump is within his rights refusing to do so.

Why is he not releasing them? Possible reasons: He is nowhere near as successful as he has claimed; he is operating at a loss. I don’t really think his wealth is relevant. He made it relevant by bragging. Where are his achievements aside from boasting? Asks Ben Stein in The American Spectator.

Ben Stein is a writer, actor, and lawyer who served as a speechwriter in the Nixon administration as the Watergate scandal unfolded. He began his unlikely road to stardom when director John Hughes as the numbingly dull economics teacher in the urban comedy, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."
