CNN's Erin Burnett talks to Fmr. President Bill Clinton about why Mitt Romney won't release his tax returns.
And that's the way it is
Why dont you report on "The Financial Modernization Act" in 1999 and how Republicans forced Clinton to sign it.
Bill Clinton's tone is one of mild regret that Mitt Romney hasn't released "a decade of tax returns". Clinton defends the Romney returns that have been released as being completely legal. He takes care to point out that Romney donated a high percent of his income to charity, mainly, the Mormon Church. He goes on, pointing out what good work the Mormon Church does. Bill Clinton has defended Mitt Romney before. He called his Bain career "stirling" and said that he is perfectly qualified to run for President. Can anyone forget the vicious pounding Obama gave Hilary on the 2008 campaign trail? I don't know if there's a connection, but thank you, Bill Clinton.
Listening to Bill Clinton critique a presidential candidate and suggest something sinister exists in Romney's tax returns is just laughable. Maybe if Romney's tax returns show like Hilary's Rose Law Firm records years into his administration it will be ok with the former President.
