We know that Mitt’s personal lawyer/trustee closed Mitt’s Swiss bank account in 2010.
We also know that the U. S. Treasury offered a “general amnesty” to Americans with Swiss bank accounts whom our government finally got the Swiss government to reveal. About 17,000 Americans turned up, and they were offered a chance to pay the taxes they owed, plus a modest fine, by October 15, 2010, and they would not be prosecuted. All but about 2,500 of the 17,000 took advantage of this IRS amnesty.
Is this what Mitt is trying to hide? That he took advantage of the amnesty for those with Swiss bank accounts who could have been criminally prosecuted but for the grace of the Obama Treasury Department?
Maybe the 2010 account closing and the 2010 amnesty are just a coincidence. Maybe I’ll win some gold medals in London…
