New York State makes legislative move to release Trump’s tax returns

The resistance has moved north from DC…at least for the time being.

One of the most bitter battles taking place on Capitol Hill this week has to do with the tax returns of President Donald Trump.

This isn’t a new fight by any means; democrats and “resistance” types have been clamoring for Donald Trump to release these financial records since the middle of the 2016 election.  Now, however, the fight has moved to the court system.

Not only have congressional democrats now subpoenaed the Trump tax returns, but New York State legislators are looking to get in on the action.

Democrats in New York state passed a pair of bills Wednesday that would allow Congress to get hold of President Donald Trump’s state tax returns amid an escalating fight with top administration officials over access to the President’s federal returns.

The main legislation, which passed the state assembly 84 to 53, would require the state’s tax commissioner to provide New York state tax returns to Congress upon request from the House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee, or the Joint Committee on Taxation. A second bill also passed Wednesday restricts requests to elected officials only and mandates the removal of any federal tax information that might appear on state returns.

The democratic governor of New York, Andrew Cuomo, is likely to sign the bill into law.

This latest chapter in the story of Trump’s hidden tax returns comes at a time of great peril for America, as Congress continues to claim that the President himself is complicit in some sort of cover-up regarding the RussiaGate conspiracy.
