Congressional Democrats hoping to get their hands on President Donald Trump’s taxes just got shot down in a big way.

In no uncertain terms Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has informed Democrats that he will not be honoring their request to access six years worth of Trump’s tax information.

“In reliance on the advice of the Department of Justice, I have determined that the Committee’s request lacks a legitimate legislative purpose,” Mnuchin wrote to Congress, “the Department is therefore not authorized to disclose the requested returns and return information.”

The Ways and Means Committee, controlled by Democrats, had demanded the documents in April but Mnuchin held off citing a need to confer with the Department of Justice. 

Rep. Richard Neal has rebased a statement in response that could mean legal proceedings are on the horizon. 

“Today, Secretary Mnuchin notified me that the IRS will not provide the documents I requested under Section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code. I will consult with counsel and determine the appropriate response,” Neal said.

  1. The Dems have no legal reason to have Trumps tax documents unless they furnish theirs first!!! Even then we would still re-elect him. We trust Trump more than we do the Dems who want to take our rights away to protect ourselves and our families!!

    1. Ms. or Mrs. Sheila Burk, Maam, I agree with you, and those Secretly Greedy Progressive Liberal Commie Socialist Infested Democrats even want “We The Legal Citizens/People And The Legal Immigrants Of he USA’s Savings to pay for their Commie Socialist Agendas, which according to The US Constitution IS ILLEGAL TO BOOT!!!

  2. this is getting ridiculous.. Give the relentless democrats a pacifier.. They most certainly are acting like spoiled children. Please vote for more mature persons to represent your party.

  3. Clearly, they don’t need the returns to do their business. They just want them to extract embarrassing this bits. Trump should declare the investigation over and just ignore them.
