Donald Trump’s longtime tax accountant on Tuesday rejected the idea that the Republican nominee deserves any of the credit for employing complex strategies to lower his tax bill and those of his companies.
“I did all the tax preparation,” Jack Mitnick told “Inside Edition” on Tuesday. “He never saw the product until it was presented to him for signature.”
The interview followed a damning report Saturday by The New York Times, which obtained part of Trump’s 1995 tax returns showing that the businessman declared a loss that year of more than $900 million, a loss that tax experts said Trump could have used to avoid paying income taxes for nearly 20 years.
Rather than deny the report, Trump and his advisers claimed that not paying income taxes was proof of Trump’s “genius.”
Yeah it takes a real genius to sign on the dotted and then take credit for all of the work.
However we should not be at all surprised. After all according to Trump's former bankruptcy attorneys they had a policy to only meet with him in pairs due to his constant lying.

Donald Trump’s own bankruptcy lawyers testified that they had a policy of not meeting with the real estate mogul alone because he had a “problem” of constantly lying.
In one document, bankruptcy attorney George Miller reveals that when meeting with Trump, “it’s always been our practice to make sure that two people are present, and we don’t have a problem with people lying.”
Miller calls Trump “an expert at interpreting things. Let’s put it that way.”
“We tried to [meet in pairs] with Donald always if we could because Donald says certain things and then has a lack of memory,” he says in the deposition.
And the hits just keep on coming.
Seriously how much more of this can his candidacy take before it simply collapses under the weight?
