I’m trying to imagine how the job interview would go for Elon Musk’s replacement as chief executive officer at Twitter:
Twit Fool: Tell me about a time when you were foolish and how this prepares you to be Twitter CEO.
Candidate Fool: I applied for the job?

The [House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee] voted along party lines to make the [Donald Trump’s tax] returns available and information could be available as soon as Wednesday — the day the House Jan. 6 committee is set to issue its final report on the riot at the U.S. Capitol — which will be the final days of Democratic control of Congress before Republicans take over the House in January.
Later Tuesday, the committee released a 29-page report summarizing its investigation into an [Internal Revenue Service] policy that mandates audits of returns filed by presidents and vice presidents. The committee found that the IRS had largely not followed its own internal requirement, only beginning to examine Trump’s returns after the panel inquired about the process. Just one year of Trump’s returns while in office was selected for the mandatory review, and the audit was not complete by the time he left the White House, according to the report.
