Donald Trump has failed to release his tax returns, but we won't fail to be there for the veterans.

Why I created this campaign:

Any servicemember who has ever held a security clearance has been subjected to a rigorous background check, including personal finances, affiliations, and drug activity, all for good reason. The nation entrusts its defense to this small group of talented and determined patriots, in return for this responsibility the nation asks for honesty and integrity. I believe that to be the Commander-in-Chief of this group, you should be held to the same standards.

I am calling on Donald J. Trump to release his tax returns. Every President since Nixon has released their tax returns as an important mechanism of transparency, showing Americans what organizations they support and are affiliated with. In seeking to do my civic duty as an informed and independent voter, I am starting a campaign to challenge Trump to release his tax returns.

This fundraising campaign will raise money for ten veterans groups. If Trump releases his tax returns all of this money will be donated to these organizations. Trump claims to love veterans, and so we’re asking him to put his money where his mouth is. These ten groups all support causes that I personally believe in and that best identify with the current generation of millennial veterans.

To be clear, raising and donating this money to veterans groups will not cost a penny to Donald Trump, just the release of his tax returns. So what do you say Mr. Trump, can you walk away from this deal?

    “I had no illusions that Donald would ever release his taxes. That's for little people. Donald thought if he ignored it long enough, it would go away, and it did. Just like his dreams of living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Now we can hope he never gets there, even as a member of a tour. I converted my pledge to a donation. They need all the help we can give them.”

Reid Hoffman Pledges $5 million if we meet 1 million!

I just up'ed my goal - I cant believe it Reid Hoffman just pledged $5million if we raise $1million. This is crazy, please help me get to this goal - Let's put as much pressure as we can on Trump to release his Tax Returns. $6 million going to Veterans Organizations seems like a good incentive to me!!
