You can look at 3,721 pages of Hillary Clinton’s daily schedule from the time she was Secretary of State. You can see all of it — the travel itinerary, the speeches, the diplomatic visits, the laying of wreaths. It’s all a matter of public record — a transparency that sets her candidacy apart in a significant way from her GOP rival, Donald Trump. Clinton has also published the last eight years of her tax returns online for anyone to look at. She and husband Bill paid $43,885,310 in federal taxes during that time.

This Clinton transparency is in stark contrast to Mr. Trump’s refusal to share his tax returns for public scrutiny, even after repeated requests. Even billionaire investor Warren Buffett has asked Trump to share his tax returns, to no avail. Former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney believes Trump’s returns contain a “bombshell” that would expose him in various ways. But since there is no legal requirement that a candidate share their returns, it’s only precedent that Trump is neglecting.
