What’s the old saying? If Democrats didn’t have double-standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all, right?
Well, while some people might scoff at that idea, this story pretty much proves just how deep the left’s hypocrisy goes.
The Federalist Papers Reports:
Take Rep. Elijah Cummings for instance. He’s been one of the loudest critics of President Trump, routinely calling for the President’s tax returns.
But now that he’s been accused of violating tax law, he doesn’t think he needs to produce any of his own.
What a hypocrite!
From the Washington Examiner:
Rep. Elijah Cummings denied that corporate donations to his wife’s charity posed a conflict of interest with his House Oversight Committee chairmanship and denounced an IRS complaint filed against the organization as “a fabricated distraction” on Wednesday.
The National Legal and Policy Center, a government watchdog group, filed an IRS complaint against Cummings’ wife Maya Rockeymoore’s nonprofit organization on Monday, the Washington Examiner first reported.
The complaint asked the IRS to investigate the overlap between Rockeymoore’s nonprofit Center for Global Policy Solutions and her for-profit consulting firm Global Policy Solutions LLC to determine whether the arrangement was used for “illegal private benefit.”
Rockeymoore’s nonprofit group and LLC have mutual clients, donors, and projects and were located at the same address and share a phone number. The National Legal and Policy Center’s IRS complaint claims that they “appear to operate almost as a single entity, allowing for an illegal private benefit for Maya Rockeymoore Cummings and her husband.”
Cummings, 68, a Maryland Democrat, is chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. Rockeymoore, 48, is the chairwoman of the Maryland Democratic Party and briefly ran in the state’s gubernatorial race last year. The couple married in 2008. …
Accused of multiple tax violations, Cummings still refuses to produce his tax records.
At the same time, Cummings continues to demand that President Trump produce his tax records although there is zero evidence that the President ever committed a crime.
I get that the President should be held to a higher standard than a Congressman, but this is absolutely ridiculous.
Cummings should either shut up about Trump’s tax returns or produce his own to avoid the stink of hypocrisy.
But since Cummings is a hero to the far left, don’t expect either one of those things to happen anytime soon.
Oh, and don’t forget that something very similar is happening to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) right now, too. And you can bet Democrats aren’t going to hold her feet to the fire over any of this!
The story just goes to prove that Democrats operate under a completely different set of rules than Republicans.
And that double-standards are the only standards Democrats have left.
