Democrats set new deadline on Trump tax returns

"The department has decided not to allow the IRS to comply with my request by the April 10 deadline".

"This just shows the President's contempt for law, another instance of the President's contempt for law", Nadler said on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper. Other Democrats accused the administration of dragging their feet.

"Certainly the president is wishing no ill will and certainly not violence towards anyone, but the president is absolutely and should be calling out the congresswoman for her not only one time but history of anti-Semitic comments", Sanders told Stephanopoulos.

Trump also addressed the issue in an exchange with reporters. The IRS says there is no pronouncement against concerns of an audit from publicly liberating their tax filings.

Democrats argue that 6103 requests are made all the time and are routinely handled through the IRS, not under the supervision of the treasury secretary.

Trump broke with a decades-old precedent by refusing to release his returns as a presidential candidate in 2016 and continues to do so as president, saying his tax returns are under IRS audit.

In a recent interview with the Post, Democratic New York Representative Kathleen Rice, who serves as chairwoman of the House Homeland Security subcommittee on border security said Miller needs to come before her panel to "make his case for these awful policies to the American people instead of being this shadow puppeteer".

Mnuchin, who has consulted with the White House and Department of Justice about Trump's tax returns, previously said that Neal's request raised concerns about the scope of the committee's authority, privacy protections for taxpayers, and the legislative objective of lawmakers in seeking the documents.
