The "We the People" petition site created by the Obama Administration has been kept live by President Donald Trump's team as it relaunches the White House website, and the only petition now on the site, which has been wiped clean of Obama-era requests, demands that the new commander-in-chief release his tax returns.

First Petition Generated on White House Site
Demands Trump Release His Tax Returns

Kerry Eleveld / The Daily Kos

(January 20, 2017) -- Team Trump may have scrubbed the government sites of climate change and LGBTQ rights policy, but they left the Obama administration's citizen-generated petition page. Oops! Politico's Brent Griffiths writes:
The "We the People" petition site created by the Obama Administration has been kept live by President Donald Trump's team as it relaunches the White House website, and the only petition now on the site, which has been wiped clean of Obama-era requests, demands that the new commander-in-chief release his tax returns.

"The unprecedented economic conflicts of this administration need to be visible to the American people, including any pertinent documentation which can reveal the foreign influences and financial interests which may put Donald Trump in conflict with the emoluments clause of the Constitution," the petition reads . . . .

"Trump's taxes were a key issue during the 2016 presidential campaign. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Democrats repeatedly pointed out that Trump, by not releasing his taxes, defied his own pledge and the precedents of major party nominees going back decades. Trump has said that he is being audited by the IRS and that he will release his returns when any audits are over."


By mid-afternoon Friday, 2,762 people had signed it. By Saturday evening, the petition had more than 169,000 signatures. [Once a petition reaches more than 100,000 signatures, the White House is required to offer a public response explaining what actions it may undertake to address the peoples' concerns.]

WE THE PEOPLE ASK THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
TO CHANGE AN EXISTING ADMINISTRATION POLICY:

Divest or put in a blind trust
all of the President's business and financial assets

Created by H.B. on January 20, 2017

In keeping with tradition and to avoid the appearance of conflicts of interest, corruption, and violations of the emoluments clause of the US Constitution, President Trump should divest his financial and business holdings or have them administered by a truly blind trust.

Some of Donald Trump's Liabilities May Be Impeachable
BOLD Democrats

Donald Trump took office as the most unpopular president in over 4 decades. The majority of Americans are unhappy with his downright juvenile behavior, and are terrified by his scandal-ridden transition.

They have good reason:
* Donald Trump is currently facing 75 active lawsuits -- ranging from fraud to sexual harassment.[2]

* He's refused to shift his business interests to a neutral trust fund, placing his own profit above the safety and security of our nation.

* And the FBI, CIA, NSA, DOJ, DNI, and Treasury are ALL investigating allegations of illegal coordination and payment between Trump's campaign team and Russia.

This is unacceptable. It's dangerous. And it's grounds for impeachment.
