Tax March Responds to Appeals Court Decision That Congress Can Seek Eight Years of Trump’s Tax Records

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Tax March released the following statement from Tax March Executive Director Maura Quint in response to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit declining to revisit an earlier ruling by a three-judge panel that allowed Congress to subpoena the president’s tax records.

“We are heartened to see the decision of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals stand. Congress has the constitutionally designated role of presidential oversight, and this president most certainly needs it.

“It is vital for the preservation of our democracy that no President be allowed to consider themselves above the law. Without reviewing his tax returns, we continue to be uncertain in whose interests President Trump is working.

Tax March was founded in 2017 as a grassroots effort driven by 125,000 people nationwide who marched in a unified demand that Donald Trump release his tax returns. These marches were a nonpartisan effort to ensure that the President of the United States of America be held accountable to the people that he represents. Two and a half years later, we have yet to see Donald Trump’s tax returns. His intense efforts to hide these returns from Congress and from the public give us tremendous pause and reason to believe that the President may not be working in the interests of Americans. Instead, his continued efforts to avoid transparency and obscure his motivations and influences compel us to wonder who is benefitting from his leadership? At this juncture, we have no reason to believe it is the American public.”
