Dems Are Pushing For Bill That Will Force Trump To Release Taxes

House Oversight Committee Democrats are pushing for a vote on the Presidential Tax Transparency Act, a bill that will force Donald Trump and all future presidents to release their tax returns.

Elijah Cummings and the rest of the panel’s other Democrats sent a letter to Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), asking him to vote on the bill.

“Of course, we support requiring future presidents to disclose their tax returns, but exempting President Trump from this requirement makes no sense at all — especially since every previous president for the past four decades has voluntarily disclosed his tax returns,” the letter said.

The letter urged Chaffetz that the bill be added to a markup on May 2.

“Given all the developments that have occurred since we wrote to you in March, we respectfully request that you add H.R. 305 to the agenda for this markup,” the letter adds.

On Wednesday Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said that Trump has no plans to release his taxes.

“The president has no intention — the president has released plenty of information and I think has given more financial disclosure than anybody else,” Mnuchin said Wednesday during a White House briefing.

“I think the American population has plenty of information.”
