Donald Trump's already-turbulent year looks set to end in further headache for the former president amid reports that his tax returns will be published Friday.

The House ways and means committee, which managed to obtain Trump's financial records following a yearslong battle, is said to be preparing to publicize them on December 30.

Unnamed sources told media outlets such as the Associated Press and CNN that there will be a pro forma House session on Friday, during which the records will be released.

Trump WH aide said it was ‘painfully obvious’ when Trump wrote his own tweets because of ‘the capitalization of letters’

  Trump WH aide said it was ‘painfully obvious’ when Trump wrote his own tweets because of ‘the capitalization of letters’ "In times of crises, you want your leader to meet the moment, and to me, it felt like he didn't meet the moment," former aide Sarah Matthews said.Sarah Matthews, a White House aide who worked for Trump from 2017 to 2021, testified to the January 6 committee that she occasionally worked with former chief of staff Dan Scavino to help draft tweets for Trump, according to the transcript released on Thursday along with a trove of other testimonies from officials close to Trump around the time of the riot.

It had been suggested that Trump's tax returns could be released on December 27, but redacted versions of the records look set to be released just four days before the GOP takes control of the House on January 3.

The release will bookend what has already been a hectic 2022 for Trump.

As well as being the first president to be referred for criminal prosecution, over his actions relating to January 6, Trump also had his Mar-a-Lago, Florida, home searched by the FBI as part of a federal investigation into allegations he mishandled classified materials removed from the White House, then attempted to obstruct attempts to retrieve them.

There have also been significant updates in a number of other criminal and civil cases involving the former president.

GOP Sen. Mike Lee said that 'Rudy is walking malpractice' after Giuliani left him an accidental voicemail on January 6

  GOP Sen. Mike Lee said that 'Rudy is walking malpractice' after Giuliani left him an accidental voicemail on January 6 "You can't make this up," Lee texted Robert O'Brien after getting a voicemail intended for Sen. Tommy Tuberville. "Rudy is walking malpractice."Before testifying in the investigation launched against her former boss' involvement in the Capitol riots, Hicks was the youngest White House communications director in history. But prior to joining the 2016 Trump campaign, she had no political experience.

These include a grand jury being summoned in Georgia to hear evidence about his alleged criminal attempt to overturn the 2020 election, and New York Attorney General Letitia James suing Trump for $250 million over claims he falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to achieve better loans and other financial benefits.

Trump's reputation within the GOP also took a major hit in 2022 as he was widely blamed for the party failing to take back control of the Senate and only just achieving a House majority. A number of his endorsed candidates, many of whom backed his false assertion the 2020 presidential election was rigged, lost their midterm races.

It remains to be seen how much further damage the publication of Trump's tax returns will have on the former president, who sought for years to keep his financial details hidden.

Ways and means committee member Rep. Don Beyer [D-VA] has already tweeted a major revelation from the documents that the Internal Revenue Service failed to audit Trump during his first two years as president, and only began doing so after committee chairman Rep. Richard Neal [D-Mass] had asked the agency for information related to Trump's tax returns.

Hope Hicks told Trump that January 6 was as bad as everyone said it was and he complained that it wasn't fair that he was being blamed

  Hope Hicks told Trump that January 6 was as bad as everyone said it was and he complained that it wasn't fair that he was being blamed The January 6 House Select Committee released almost 50 witness testimony transcripts Friday, days after recommending that the DOJ prosecute Trump.In testimony featured in the January 6 House committee's final hearing, Hope Hicks testified that former President Donald Trump told her that no one would care about his legacy if he lost the 2020 election and that the only thing that mattered was winning.

Some of Trump's tax returns during his time as president have also previously been leaked to the media.

In September 2020, The New York Times revealed that Trump had paid just $750 federal income taxes in 2016 and 2017 and paid no income tax during several other years.

Newsweek has contacted Trump for comment.
