Treasury Refuses to Release Trump’s Tax Returns


Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has denied congressional Democrats’ request for six years of President Donald Trump’s personal and business tax returns, writing that the request “lacks a legitimate legislative purpose” and therefore the Dept is “not authorized” to release the returns.

Mnuchin added that the Department of Justice had informed Treasury, “that it intends to memorialize its advice in a published legal opinion as soon as practical.”
For those of you with the voyeuristic fascination with a rich man’s tax returns, do you really want any random politician with an ax to grind to be able to get your tax returns?
