One of the worst media lapses of the campaign was to let Trump get away not divulging his taxes. No one ever dreamed that any candidate would commit such a lapse of civic ethics—or that such a candidate would not be held to account.
Now after Trump’s refusal to divest himself of his businesses and his continuing love affair with anything Russian (most recently his attack on the CIA over Russian hacking and his appointment of a Putin buddy to run the State Department), the time has come to demand accounting.
Every political official, columnist, and blogger should demand this. It shouldn’t even be a partisan issue—the public has a RIGHT TO KNOW.
