Democrats have not given up on obtaining President Trump’s tax returns, and have now resorted to new tactics in an effort to force the president’s information to be turn over, whether he approves it or not.

Legally, presidential candidates are not required to release their personal tax returns, but every major party nominee has done so out of courtesy, until Donald Trump refused to do so.

Last week, the Democrat-controlled House Ways and Means Committee demanded the president’s personal tax information dating back to 2013. They used a little-known, hundred-year-old law which requires the U.S. Treasury Secretary to “furnish such committee with any return or return information specified in such request.”

As Democrats grilled Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Tuesday, he defended President Trump’s decision to not release the information.

Meanwhile, New York state lawmakers are trying another tactic. They will be introducing a bill that would permit the commissioner of the New York Department of Taxation and Finance to release any state tax return requested by leaders of three congressional committees for any “specific and legitimate legislative purpose.”

The matter is expected to end up in a legal battle.

    Trump was not a politician. His tax returns are no one’s business. Besides, if President Obama would not release his birth certificate in order to prove his citizenship status, knowing a non-polotician’s wealth is irrelevant!

    President Obama would not release his birth certificate or collage transcripts which is public info. So tax returns should be totally voluntary.

    The dems have a long history of weaponizing the IRS, so no. They are just on a fishing expedition to continue their witch hunt to continue their harrassment of Mr Trump.

    They can’t demand or forcably show Trumps tax returns. It is invasion of privacy, by federal standards. His tax returns are private, just like yours and mine. You don’t want someone looking at your tax returns when they have no business, nor any authority to look at them. Much less trying to make them public for the whole world to see.

    It would be great if the Politicians would work hard to help the US Taxpayers like our President is. Stop illegal Alien invasion. Fix the Infrastructure. Build the Wall and the critical pipelines. Get rid of the Department of Education. Fix the problems that the taxpayers voted you into office for.

    President Trump should only release taxes when Congress releases there’s. They are the ones that have made millions while working for the people. I wonder if we are going to see justice or is our politicians going too cover up.

    Tax returns are none of their damn business. They want to go back years that he wasn’t involved with politics – totally stupid. Get your head’s out of your asses and do the job you were elected to do. Starr calling these idiots out about their tax returns and show us how rich you get by lying and cheating all the time.

    Showing returns is not law. If the President chooses not to show them…that should be enough, but these morons have nothing better to do with their time than make his life miserable. Stop with this. Onsense and leavmehtmman alone and let him do the job we them People hired him to do.

      People have got to know whether or not their president is a crook,” Nixon told reporters in November 1973. “Well, I am not a crook.” Well he was a crook wasn’t he? Tax returns don’t always show everything anyway.
