OTR: Massachusetts Rep. Richard Neal is one step closer to filing Trump’s tax returns



BEN: MID-AUGUST – CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS – THE ISSUE OF THE SUNDAY ROUNDTABLE IS READY. DEMOCRATIC POLITICAL ANALYST MARY ANNE MARSH AND REPUBLICAN POLITICAL ANALYST VIRGINIA THIS SUNDAY MORNING. Well, you’ve heard both candidates for the Democratic nomination for secretary of state. BIG QUESTION. IS BILL GALVIN VULNERABLE TO THE OFFICE IN THIS, HIS EIGHTH CHANNELS? MARY ANNE: HE MADE THE BEST ARGUMENT ON THIS SHOW ABOUT THE 2024 ELECTION. TANISHA SULLIVAN THROWED A FEW PUTS AND LANDED SOME BUT DID NOT HAVE THE RESOURCES TO MAKE THEM LAST. GALVIN SHOULD BE RE-ELECTED. IT MIGHT BE CLOSER THAN FOUR YEARS AGO, BUT IT’S ON THE WAY. VIRGINIA: I FOUND INTERESTING THAT YOUR ARGUMENT WAS NOT ONLY THAT HE HAS NOT SHOWN THAT HE HAS A VISION AND IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT MASSACHUSETTS BUT PATHWAY FOR THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. I thought it was a really strong case. JANET: A FEDERAL COURT EXTENSION MAY HAVE DOMINATED LAST WEEK’S TRUMP NEWS, BUT ANOTHER, MAYBE Equally IMPORTANT, WAS SOMETHING BURIED. OUR HOUSE WAYS AND MEANS CHAIRMAN RICHARD NEAL GETS A THUMBS UP FROM A FEDERAL APPEALS COURT IN HIS ATTEMPT TO OBTAIN THE FORMER PRESIDENT’S FIVE YEAR TAX RETURNS. IN THE LONG TERM OR IN THE SHORT TERM, SHOULD I SAY, DOES THAT HAVE MORE PROMISE FOR DEMOCRATS? VIRGINIA: LIKE CONGRESSMAN NEIL, I BELIEVE IN THE RULE OF LAW AND HE FOLLOWS IT TO ENSURE IT HAPPENS. BUT THERE IS THE RISK THAT DEMOCRATS WILL ONCE AGAIN DELIVERY AND STRENGTHEN TRUMP’S HAND BY MAKING HIM A MARTYR. YOUR EXAMPLE, WHY DID NOT MERRICK GARLAND COME OUT ON THE DAY OF THE MAR-A-LAGO RATE AND SAY WHY IT HAPPENED? HE TRANSFERD DONALD TRUMP THE GROUND TO IGNITE HIS SUPPORTERS AND THAT’S A BIG PROBLEM. LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PRIMARY LAST WEEK. WIN TRUMP CANDIDATES IN CONNECTICUT, WISCONSIN, ACROSS THE COUNTRY BECAUSE WE GIVE HIM A STRONGER HAND BY MAKING HIM A MARTYR. JANET: COULD WE LEARN SOMETHING FROM THIS TAX RETURN? VIRGINIA: WE COULD ALSO SEE THEY USE HIS HAND. MARY ANNE: I HEAR FROM MY GIRLFRIEND JENNY HOW THIS BEHAVIOR HAS BECOME MAINSTREAM AND IT IS WRONG. HE IS NOT ABOVE THE LAW, HE IS NOT. MERRICK GARLAND DOES THINGS THAT DID NOT HAPPEN UNDER DONALD TRUMP WHEN HE RUN THE BUREAU, AND NEITHER DOES JIM COMEY. WE’LL TALK LATER ABOUT MERRICK GARLAND DOING THIS, BUT RICHIE NEAL IS TIME TO TAKING OUT OF HIS TAXES AND STAYING INTO IT, BECAUSE GUESS WHO WAS IN COURT IN NEW YORK ON FRIDAY? ALLEN WEISSELBERG, CFO OF THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION. WE CAN’T CHANGE OUR RULES BECAUSE AN LAWLESS TRAITOR SAT IN THE WHITE HOUSE FOR FOUR YEARS. WE STAY ABOVE AND KEEP OUR DEMOCRACY. BEN: I WANT TO STRESS, THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SAID IN HIS PRESS CONFERENCE THURSDAY, THE ONLY REASON THE RAID WAS PUBLISHED WAS BECAUSE DONALD TRUMP DID UP TO THE DETAILS. VIRGINIA: WE KNOW HE WILL RAISE THE POT AND RAGE THE COUNTRY, WE SHOULD KNOW THIS ADVANCE AND DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO SETTLE IT. OUR LEADERS DID NOT MAKE IT THIS TIME. YOU DID IT TOO LATE AND WE PAY THE PRICE. MARY ANNE: YOU KNOW WHO SAID NOTHING AND THE WATER CALMED? ALL REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS AND IN WASHINGTON. NOT ONE. BEN: COULD A TRAFFIC DISPUTES DETERMINE WHO WINS THE SUFFOLK DISTRICT ATTORNEY RACE? CURRENT DA KEVIN HAYDEN IS ACCUSED OF ATTEMPTING TO KILL AN INQUIRY OF A WHITE TRANSIT OFFICER WHO ALLEGEDLY POINTED A GUN AT A LATINO DRIVER. HIS ADVERSE RICARDO ARROYO SAYS HAYDEN MUST RESIGN. DO YOU SMELL POLITICS OR BAD JUDGMENT IN THE GAME? MARY ANNE: BOTH IT’S A BAD LOOK WHEN YOU’RE TRYING TO PULL AN INQUIRY ON ANYTHING AND THE GLOBE REVEALS IT. OH, BY THE WAY THEY ACCEPTED DONATIONS FROM THE PEOPLE THAT CAPTURED – WHO DID THEY STUCK IT FOR? VIRGINIA: IF YOU TALK ABOUT BEING OPAQUE, YOU ARE IN BIG TROUBLE. THIS SHOULD BE ABOUT LAW AND ORDER, INCREASING VIOLENCE AND RACING, THAT’S NOT WHAT IT’S ABOUT. JANET: LET’S TALK ABOUT MAYOR MICHELLE WU. SHE WANTS HERSELF AND THE COUNCIL AND THE POLICE AND FIRE DEPARTMENTS NUMEROUS PAYMENT INCREASES FOR HER AND THE COUNCIL AFTER THE NEXT ELECTION. IS THIS TOO EARLY FOR A NEW MAYOR STILL TRYING TO PROVE? VIRGINIA: NO, SHE DONE IT IN THE BEST WAY IT CAN’T NOW APPLY FOR HER OR THE COUNCIL, AND SHE LIKES TO ATTRACT GREAT TALENT. I think she handled it as well as you can handle these things. JANET: IS THIS AN ISSUE YOU AGREE ON JENNY? MARY ANNE: YES. MICHELLE WU KNOWS SHE NEEDS CERTAIN PEOPLE TO GET HER AGENDA
