It was only $25 million.Remember when you circus side-show freaks paid the worlds greatest investigator $50 million to find dirt on Trump? Do you remember that he couldn’t? Do you think he saw Trumps tax returns?
Get it together TDS’ers....it’s time to find sanity.
You're FOS.The law states there has to be a clear intent of why they need to see it. They don’t have a legitimate reason. It’s more witch hunt, and an attempt at intimidation.
Upon written request from the chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means of the House of Representatives, the chairman of the Committee on Finance of the Senate, or the chairman of the Joint Committee on Taxation, the Secretary [of the Treasury] shall furnish such committee with any return or return information specified in such request, except that any return or return information which can be associated with, or otherwise identify, directly or indirectly, a particular taxpayer shall be furnished to such committee only when sitting in closed executive session unless such taxpayer otherwise consents in writing to such disclosure.
The DOJ doesn't have that authority...lolGood news for Trump. Congress is finally going to get a look at his taxes, and he will finally have the opportunity to show proof that he didn't cheat or act unethically in any way. We have all seen how he couldn't show this information, no matter how much he wanted to before because he was under audit. I don't know exactly what happened, but I'm sure he will be celebrating this turn of events tonight.
Congress has to have a legislative purpose. The only agency that can police tax returns, is the IRS. The IRS has audited Trump's tax returns for every year he was in office. If there was something amiss, we would know by now.The tax code provides that Congress’ tax committees—including the House Committee on Ways and Means, the Senate Committee on Finance, and the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT)—are entitled to obtain any tax returns from the IRS that they request.3 Section 6103(f)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) reads:
Congress must request the president’s tax returns to understand his murky finances; monitor potential conflicts of interest relevant to national security and other critical issues; and oversee the tax code and IRS.www.americanprogress.org
