Larson Supports Committee Lawsuit for President’s Tax Returns
Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01), a senior member of the Ways and Means Committee, issued a statement in support of the Ways and Means Committee’s lawsuit against the Internal Revenue Service and U.S. Department of Treasury to comply with Chairman Neal’s requests for President Trump’s tax returns.
“I applaud Chairman Neal for filing a lawsuit today for the Ways and Means Committee to obtain President Trump’s tax returns. It is within his jurisdiction as Committee Chair to request the President’s tax returns to conduct oversight. This Administration has not only ignored the Chairman’s request, but subpoenas too. The law is on the Committee’s side and I am confident the Chairman’s request will be upheld in federal court,” said Larson.
