While he says he doesn’t have to because he’s being audited?
That doesn’t hold any water….
Every President’s tax returns are audited….
That has not stopped them from airing them to the public…
Then there is the law….
IN the tax code….
There is a part that says union request form Congress, who write the tax code, under section 6103, not the executive branch, the IRS ‘shall furnish’ thru the Treasury Sec returns….
Anyone think the IRS people are gonna do this?
Anyone thing Treasury Sec Mnuchin is gonna do this?
This is gonna be about a judge ORDERING the guys to do this….
And if Trump STILL says NO?
We WILL have a problem folks….
Earlier this month, Neal wrote the IRS asking for six years of the president’s personal and business tax returns, which Trump has refused to release breaking decades of precedent for candidates for the White House. In his letter, Neal argues that the IRS has an “unambiguous legal obligation” to turn over the returns under section 6103 of the tax code, which states that the treasury secretary “shall furnish” a request from the congressional committees with tax oversight.
Congressional Republicans and Trump’s personal attorney, William S. Consovoy, have argued Democrats’ request risks weaponizing the IRS for partisan political gain, with Consovoy calling it a “gross abuse of power.” Mnuchin’s letter earlier this week said Neal’s request “raises serious issues concerning the constitutional scope of congressional investigative authority.”
Mnuchin revealed in congressional testimony that White House lawyers consulted with Treasury on Trump’s tax returns.
“It is not the proper function of the IRS, Treasury, or Justice to question or second guess the motivations of the committee,” Neal writes in his letter. “Judicial precedent commands that none of the concerns raised can legitimately be used to deny the committee’s request.”
Attorneys under Neal have been carefully crafting their correspondence with the Treasury Department to improve their odds of winning a subsequent court battle. Some legal experts have speculated that Neal may be trying to improve his case by waiting for an outright denial before leveling additional threats…..’
By sheer investigative numbers?
By the time Donald Trump leaves office the American public and world WILL have a better idea of where Trump gets his money from and how much he ACTUALLY has….
Congressional and NY State investigations are numerous and continually digging into Donald Trump many financial affairs….
He may not like it…
But American President accept the fact that their financial affairs are a open book when they take the job…
