Donald Trump is "deeply involved" in business dealings with Russian oligarchs, and that explains his reluctance to release his tax returns, columnist George Will suggested. 

He appeared Monday night on Fox News' "Special Report." Here's an excerpt: 

BAIER: “Both the campaign chair and anybody you talk to, including Senator Murphy would not go down that road once pressed on the connection between Russia and the Trump campaign. But they have thrown it out there. George?” 
WILL: “Well, it’s the sort of thing we might learn if we saw the candidates’ tax returns. Perhaps one more reason why we’re not seeing his tax returns because he is deeply involved in dealing with Russian oligarchs and others. Whether that’s good, bad or indifferent it’s probably the reasonable surmise.”
