Tax March Applauds House Democrats for Suing the Treasury to Obtain Trump’s Tax Returns
WASHINGTON — Today, Tax March released the following statement from Tax March Campaign Director Dana Bye following reports that the House Ways and Means Committee is suing the Treasury Department to comply with the subpoena for Trump’s tax returns:
“We are thrilled that the House Ways and Means Committee is taking action to obtain Trump’s tax returns. Trump and his administration have consistently and repeatedly broken or ignored the law, and that won’t stand.
“Congress, as a co-equal branch of the government, has a constitutional duty to conduct oversight and we are heartened to see that House Democrats agree that no one is above the law.
“Donald Trump has been hiding his financial life from the American people for years – something no modern president has ever done. He has been hiding his business dealings and loyalties for far too long, and it is time that the American people learn the truth. ”
