Mnuchin: Courts Will Decide Battle On Trump’s Taxes

Roll Call reports:

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Wednesday he expects the courts will resolve the conflict between the administration and House Ways and Means Chairman Richard E. Neal over the release of President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

“This will go to the third branch of government to be resolved,” Mnuchin said during questioning before the Senate Appropriations Financial Services Subcommittee Wednesday.

Based on Mnuchin’s past responses to Neal’s requests for six years of personal tax returns of the president and six years of returns from eight Trump businesses, lawyers following the issue have expressed doubts that Mnuchin will provide the documents after Neal demanded them in subpoenas issued May 10.
