(Worthy News) – Congress cannot access the tax returns of former President Donald Trump until the Supreme Court considers the issue on the merits.
Trump had requested a stay from the high court only a day earlier; the committee could have received Trump’s records as early as Thursday if the court had not intervened. The court’s intervention, a brief order signed by Chief Justice John Roberts, came this morning. It gives the Democratic-controlled House Ways and Means Committee until Thursday, Nov. 10, to submit its response.
The House Ways and Means Committee, led by Representative Richard Neal of Massachusetts, wants to review six years of Trump’s personal and business filings. Neal claims the committee needs the records as part of a review of the IRS audit process for presidents and vice presidents. Trump claims, however, that the committee is seeking his taxes only to release his tax information to the public. [ Source: Courthouse News (Read More…) ]
