BREAKING: Trump to fight release of tax returns to Congress

According to Axios “an attorney for former President Trump told the Wall Street Journal Monday he intends to fight a Department of Justice order to release his tax returns to the Democratic-led House Ways and Means Committee.”

“The DOJ said in a memo to the Treasury Department last Friday that the committee had a “legitimate legislative purpose” to access the returns. A judge has asked the parties to provide a time frame for written arguments by Wednesday, the WSJ notes”

Ronald Fischetti, a lawyer for Trump, told the Wall Street Journal “There is no evidence of any wrongdoing here and I object to the release of the returns not only on behalf of my client but on behalf of all future holders of the office of the president of the United States.”

Last week,, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tweeted “the Biden Admin has delivered a victory for the rule of law as it respects the public interest by complying w/ Chairman Neal’s request for Donald Trump’s tax returns. I applaud Chairman Neal for his dignified pursuit of the truth & the Biden Admin DOJ for its respect for the law.”
