The Treasury Dept has refused the Democrats’ demand for Trump’s tax returns, citing the fact that they have no crime or suspected crime based on evidence. They are wanting to begin a fishing expedition – and that is no basis for turning over tax returns. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin says he will consult with the DOJ, but as of now, the Democrats are just plain SOL. (S*#t outta luck) If Trump’s tax returns could be obtained by Congress, every citizen in the United States would then have to worry about their tax returns becoming public.
The Treasury Department will not turn over Trump’s tax returns by the Wednesday deadline set by Chairman Richard Neal on the Ways and Means Committee.
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said Wednesday evening that he will consult with the DOJ on the request.
“The Committee’s request raises serious issues concerning constitutional scope of Congressional investigative authority” Mnuchin said in his letter to Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA).
The Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Richard Neal (D-MA), sent a letter to the IRS last Wednesday demanding President Trump’s tax returns for 2013 through 2018 as well as for several of Trump’s businesses.
“Is that all?” Trump said to a reporter last Wednesday who brought up the Dems request for the last 6 years of his tax returns. Trump said that the Democrats are giving up because they usually ask for the last 10 years of his tax returns.
“We’re under audit,” Trump continued. “Despite what people said and we’re working that out — I’m always under audit it seems — I’ve been under audit for many years because the numbers are big and guess when you have a name, you’re audited.”
“Until such time that I’m not under audit, I would not be inclined to do that,” Trump said.
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it @realDonaldTrump!
