According to his wife on the Today show sometime last week (paraphrased) they don’t want to release more because people will just pick on them’ or something like that.
Whether or not he has something to hide, it SEEMS that way with his reluctance. It seems that he’s holding back, either trying to hide or struggling to damage control before he does release them.
I feel, if it were ‘good news’ he’d have released them months ago. I think he’s struggling to keep them private until after the official nomination so that he gets it. He’s too close to ‘winning’ to risk losing it in a backlash over his taxes. This is when you wish that someone at the IRS would be naughty and behave inappropriately and pop a few photo copies in the mail. (although I’m sure his tax return files have been locked down and people soundly lectured and monitored just to make sure that that doesn’t happen)
