Default Trump lawyer disputes Dem rationale for requesting tax returns

President Trump's attorney has responded House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal's (D-Mass.) argument from two days earlier that the panel is authorized by law to see a copy of the president's returns from 2013-2018. Never mind that the President's tax returns are audited by the IRS or that President Trump ran and won without releasing his tax returns, Democrats must be able to politicize the IRS to target President Trump.

Trump's lawyer specifically objects to Congressional snooping based on.

Quote:
That it is limited to a single President, seeks tax information from before the President took office, asks no questions about IRS policy, and does not even wait for the IRS to finish its ongoing examinations (and any resulting appeals) reveals that Chairman Neal's request is nothing more than an attempt to exercise constitutional authority that Congress does not possess," Consovoy wrote in a letter to Brent McIntosh, general counsel at the Treasury Department.

In their typical short sighted Resistance thinking Democrats ignore the implications of a politicized Congress targeting opposition party members by forcing them to release their tax returns.
