NY State hands democrats a big win in fight over President’s tax returns

The White House was quick to respond. 

The “resistance” minded media, along with their democratic pals on Capitol Hill, just can’t seem to let this one go.

I’m speaking of course about Donald Trump’s tax returns.

On the campaign trail, then-candidate Trump ferociously defended his right to keep such documents private, citing his legal team’s advice to avoid releasing the returns on account of an ongoing audit.  The President adhered to this advice, causing an uproar among democrats and other such anti-Trump factions.  The immediate assumption in the mainstream media was that Trump had something to hide.

The left has refused to acquiesce to defeat in this pedantic pursuit, and are now taking their attacks on the President to the state level, with New York looking eager to play along.

New York state on Monday cleared the way for Democrats in the U.S. Congress to obtain President Donald Trump’s state tax returns, raising the possibility of fresh avenues of inquiry for lawmakers investigating his finances.

Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an amendment to a tax law that would require the commissioner of the Department of Taxation and Finance to share state income tax returns and reports when certain congressional committees request them.

“This bill gives Congress the ability to fulfill its constitutional responsibilities, strengthen our democratic system and ensure that no one is above the law,” said Cuomo, a Democrat.

The White House was quick to respond.

Trump’s attorney Jay Sekulow responded to the law by calling it an example of “more presidential harassment.”

This law is immediately in effect, meaning that movement on the issue could come within days.

The subject of Trump’s tax returns has fomented a bitter feud in Washington DC, as congressional democrats continue to use their subpoena power to deluge Donald Trump with their desperate attacks.
