Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton will release her tax returns "on or around April 15," according to her communications director.
Howard Wolfson made the announcement Sunday on "This Week" during an appearance with Sen. Barack Obama's senior campaign adviser, David Axelrod. According to ABC News, Axelrod asked why "Clinton continues to refuse to release her tax returns, as all the other candidates have." Wolfson replied that "the tax returns are going to be released around tax time."
Also during the show: Axelrod charged that Clinton "refuses to release the documents from the Clinton Library related to her time in the White House, which is the fulcrum of her argument on experience." Wolfson replied: "Clinton's schedule as first lady were given over to the president's representatives for review. That review has been completed. We've given the records back over to the archives. They are now back in the archives' hands. Our say in the process is over, and I assume that they will be releasing them very expeditiously." Wolfson raised the issue of Obama's relationship with campaign contributor Tony Rezko, who is set to go on trial Monday for corruption charges. "I can't imagine he's going to answer them, but I wish that he would, and I think Democrats hope that he will For instance, how many fundraisers did Mr. Rezko throw for Senator Obama? What did Senator Obama do for Mr. Rezko? Did he write letters for him? What projects of his did he support? How many business meetings did he attend where Mr. Rezko had business associates there? What are the -- one more important one -- what are the full details of this very unusual real estate transaction that Mr. Rezko and Mr. Obama entered into?" Axelrod responded: "There have been 255 stories done on this issue, many by the Chicago media, others by the national media. All these questions have been asked. All these questions have been answered. As the Associated Press said in their summation of this thing, there has been not one bit of evidence of any wrongdoing on the part of Sen. Obama in this or any other matter."
