Republicans Ask Democrats To Please Leave Trump's Tax Returns ALONE

WASHINGTON ― Republicans in Congress have formally asked Democrats to stop trying to get their hands on President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

Democrats are holding a hearing Thursday on the importance of disclosing Trump’s tax information, which would reveal how much money he makes, who pays him and how much tax he pays.

Ways and Means can obtain anyone’s tax returns under a provision of the tax code. This provision has existed since the 1920s, when Congress enabled three congressional committees to obtain the president’s tax returns without the chief executive’s consent. Those committees can then release those tax returns to the full House or Senate if they choose. The Joint Committee on Taxation famously did so in 1974 when it sent its report on President Richard Nixon’s tax returns to the House.
Not since Richard Nixon. Trump is in good company, isn't he?

Hmm, that weighs quite heavy into the equation! If Republicans do not want Democrats to investigate Trump's tax returns then there must be something really BIG in them that they don't want Democrats and the country to find out about otherwise, why would they care.
