Democrats Say That If They Take Over the House, They Will Demand Trump’s Tax Returns

The Democrats are now saying that if they gain enough seats to take over the House, they will demand that the IRS turn over his tax returns. The Democrats have been trying to get a hold of his tax returns ever since he announced for the presidency.

Although you would think it would be illegal since the IRS cannot release people’s tax returns, the House could get access through the House Ways and Means Committee and shortly thereafter, release them to the public, even if they find no wrongdoing. But if the Republicans hold the House, why not order Occidental, Columbia and Harvard to turn over Obama’s transcripts and enrollment information, including where the money came from to pay for his college?

“You’re damn right,” Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) told the Huffington Post when asked if Democrats would continue their pursuit of Trump’s tax returns if they manage to gain a majority.

Pascrell has repeatedly demanded that Trump to release his tax returns, and unsuccessfully called on Republicans in Congress to join Democrats in ordering the IRS to hand them over. On his website, Pascrell lists 27 different attempts by Democrats to force the issue since Feb. 1, 2017.

Other congressional Democrats, including Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) and Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.), have also said publicly that they would support efforts to obtain Trump’s returns.

This determination isn’t new. In May, the Washington Examiner reported that in interviews with more than 30 congressional Democrats, every one of them agreed that their party needed to be a check on the Trump administration.

The more the Democrats make these threats, the more Republicans will be fired up to go out and vote. They could be shooting themselves in the foot.
