Mitt Romney has no intention of releasing more than two years of tax returns because he doesn't want to give Democrats more fodder for attacking him, he told NBC's Brian Williams Wednesday. Romney repeated a point he has made several times, arguing that Democrats will twist the returns into something that can be used against him.
"And what we've noted is our Democrat friends, take what's there, twist it, distort it -- dishonestly use it in -- in attack ads. I just don't wanna give 'em more material than is required," Romney said.
Romney argued that he already plans to release two years, which follows the precedent set by Sen. John McCain in 2008, in addition to financial disclosures as required by federal law.
