Posted on 1.11.2022
Rep. Richard Neal (D-Mass.), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, has lobbied for access to President Donald Trump’s tax returns for four years. Mr. Neal says this is necessary because the panel assesses and updates how president audits are done. Interestingly, Neal is not seeking any other president’s records. But according to the Epoch Times, he accused Mr. Trump of dodging taxes by saying that “unraveling President Trump’s sophisticated tax evasion” was one of the reasons he believed Mr. Trump should release his statements.
Mr Trump said their real goal was to make his tax returns public.
On Tuesday, November 1, the United States Supreme Court blocked Congress from obtaining former President Donald Trump’s tax returns, after the latter filed an emergency petition with the Supreme Court asking him to to stop the order. The request indicates ;
“The Committee’s purpose in requesting President Trump’s tax returns has nothing to do with funding or personnel issues at the IRS and everything to do with releasing the President’s tax information to the public. »

Despite the lack of evidence linking Trump to Russia during the Russiagate hoax, political opponent Nancy Pelosi also tried to get his taxes, saying she would like to know the Russians’ hold on Trump. In 2017, she said the statements would be “useful” to investigate “what … the Russians have on Donald Trump,” and that investigations into Trump were going to continue in 2019 because she “wants to see him in jail.” »
Trump-appointed U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden originally ruled on the matter in 2021 when Trump said Neal’s committee had no legitimate legislative purpose to pursue his returns. However, McFadden ruled that the presidential audit program could be subject to legislation while acknowledging that there could be mixed motives for the legislature trying to obtain Trump’s tax records.
Chief Justice John Roberts, appointed by George W. Bush, suspended an appeals court ruling that allowed a congressional group access to the documents. The reprieve is temporary, pending further developments in the case. Judge John Roberts oversees the District of Columbia Court of Appeals and can rule on the claim alone or take the case to the full Supreme Court.
