Michael Reagan: Trump's Woes Vanish If He Releases Taxes

Newsmax TV's "America Talks Live"

Michael Reagan told Newsmax TV on Wednesday there is an easy way for President Donald Trump to calm the furor over his firing of FBI director James Comey and ease the calls for an independent probe of Russia's election meddling: "Just hand over your damn tax returns!"

"I understand the firing, I have questions about the timing, [but] it's not brain surgery to know how the liberals or the progressives would in fact react to all of this, bringing up Watergate and so many other things," Reagan, a veteran political commentator and son of Ronald Reagan, told host Bill Tucker on "America Talks Live."

"You know how this goes away? Just hand over your damn tax returns. Just hand it over. Show it to everybody . . . and about 95 percent of this just absolutely disappears.

"But as long as he holds onto his taxes, he's going to allow – the liberals, the progressives, whatever you want to call them – to have their issue of the day, why people are being fired and what have you. Hand over your taxes!"

Reagan, a Newsmax contributor, added however it is unlikely the billionaire businessman, who has refused to release his income tax returns – unlike most other modern presidents have – will do so.

"It's not that hard to turn it over," Reagan told Tucker. "And he needs to do that if he wants to get much of this, in fact, behind him, but he's being Donald Trump, if you will. We shouldn't expect him to change; he's never going to change. That should be a hat: 'Never going to change.'"

Reagan said Comey's sudden sacking could have been handled better – the veteran lawman learned about it on TV.

"The firing, the way he found out, that was a little childish, if you will, at some level – but the reality of it is that Comey is gone," he said, adding Trump has his work cut out for him on finding a palatable replacement.

"I think Trump is going to find it very hard to put a new man in that place that's going to be acceptable by [Senate Minority Leader Chuck] Schumer and the Democrats. So, he had to think about that going forward also. Don't know if he did."

Reagan is author of "Lessons My Father Taught Me," published by Humanix.
