(DCWatchdog.com) – BREAKING NOW: Just moments ago, the Democrat-controlled Ways and Means Committee in the United States House of Representatives released six years of former President Donald Trump’s tax returns just days before the Republicans take control of the committee.
According to the New York Post in “House Ways and Means Committee releases Trump’s tax returns“:
“House Democrats released six years of former President Donald Trump’s tax returns Friday in one of their final acts before returning power to Republicans next week.
“The release of the documents which cover the years from 2015 to 2020, is the final chapter in a long-running legal battle between the 76-year-old former president and the House Ways and Means Committee, which sued in 2019 seeking Trump’s financial information.
“The returns, which include redactions of information such as Social Security and bank account numbers, span nearly 6,000 pages — including more than 2,700 pages of individual returns from Trump and his wife, Melania, and more than 3,000 pages in returns for Trump’s business entities.” [emphasis added]
Republicans, siding with Trump, opposed this move by the Democrats.
“Committee Republicans opposed the release, saying earlier this week that ‘Democrats are wielding a new political weapon by releasing confidential tax information despite claiming it was done for a legitimate legislative purpose.’” [emphasis added]
