Congress and the Trump administration are inching closer to a legal fight over President Trump’s tax returns.

House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., wrote Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Saturday with a new deadline to transmit Trump’s tax returns after Mnuchin missed Neal’s original April 10 deadline. The Ways and Means chairman now wants the administration to provide Trump’s tax returns to his committee by April 23.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I am aware that concerns have been raised regarding my request and the authority of the Committee. Those concerns lack merit,” wrote Neal. “Moreover, judicial precedent commands that none of the concerns raised can legitimately be used to deny the Committee’s request.”

Neal added that the law allowing him to request and review those returns is “unambiguous,” and that he would view Mnuchin as violating the law if he blocked cooperation by the new deadline he set on Saturday.

“Please know that, if you fail to comply, your failure will be interpreted as a denial of my request,” said Neal.
