House Committee Republican Slams Democrat’s Request for Trump’s Tax Returns

  • House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal D-Mass. arrives for a Democratic Caucus meeting at the Capitol in Washington. Neal whose committee has jurisdiction over all tax issues has formally requested President

Ocasio-Cortez's tweet referred to the House Ways and Means Committee's request to the IRS for six years of the president's tax records.

Throughout the day Thursday, the president's supporters rallied to the defense of the president.

The Democratic chairman who's demanding to see President Trump's tax returns says he'd have no problem releasing his own returns - later.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said the request is "not only is it a waste of time, it sets a unsafe standard of having the federal government used as a political weapon". Several top tier candidates - including Senator Bernie Sanders and former representative Beto O'Rourke - said they plan to release them but haven't yet. They use the power of government, the fear that every American has the government has become so strong they go after you because they don't politically agree with you.

"The Green New Deal, done by a young bartender, 29 years old", Trump told a crowd of House Republicans at a dinner in Washington on Tuesday, referring to Ocasio-Cortez and her package of proposals for USA efforts to combat climate change. "I can tell you right now, those tax documents would not be leaked under my tutelage" as Ways and Means chairman, Neal said. "The president and vice president are audited".

Trump eschewed standard presidential protocol and didn't release his tax returns because he figured they would be damaging to him.

Mr. Kennedy added all presidents should turn in their tax returns, and he would consider doing the same. "That's all this is about, and it's Nixonian to the core".

The request Wednesday by Massachusetts Rep. Richard Neal, who heads the tax-writing House Ways and Means Committee, is the first such demand for a sitting president's tax information in 45 years. Kevin Brady, R-Texas, said.

"Mexico understands that we're going to close the border or I'm going to tariff the cars".

It would require a vote in the committee to release any such documents to the public if they are eventually handed over.

It is a bid to solve one of the most tantalizing and enduring mysteries of Trump's 2016 campaign and his presidency - what is it in the President's unseen financial and business life that he doesn't want Americans to see?

Representative Pramila Jayapal, a Democrat from Washington and a leader of the House Progressive Caucus, said she believes the tax returns would shed light on whether "some of his actions and public policy, like around Russian Federation, for example, could be explained by those conflicts of interest".

Six months prior, Roll Call asked each member of Congress to if they would release their tax returns.

Just this week, House committee chairs have readied subpoenas to demand the full release of Robert Mueller's Russian Federation report and to examine accusations of abuses in the White House's handling of top secret security clearances.

The committee said in its statement that Neal insisted the request "is not about impeachment", but legitimate oversight issues.

Auto parts and medical equipment makers were among the Mexican companies considering the more expensive air cargo to avoid incurring penalties for late delivery to US clients or factory closures, Luis Aguirre, the president of Mexico's manufacturing industry chamber INDEX, said late on Wednesday. Nadler told reporters he would also seek a judge's permission to get access to Mueller's grand jury material, which is protected under federal law. One would be the payment that Cohen said he made to buy the silence of adult film star Stormy Daniels about an alleged affair with Trump.
