Why getting Trump’s tax returns won’t help Democrats

New York Post - 05-16


Disappointed by Robert Mueller’s failure to prove President Trump’s perfidy, Democrats are focusing anew on Trump’s tax returns. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin refuses to order the release of Trump’s federal returns to the House, saying that there is no legislative purpose, but a new effort to expose Trump’s tax history is afoot in Albany. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has promised to sign a bill making its way through the Legislature that would submit any New Yorker’s state returns to Congress, on request from the chairs of any of three revenue-related committees.
