Full Mueller report, Trump’s taxes sought

THE U.S. HOUSE of Representatives (house.gov).

The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives took two swipes at President Donald Trump Wednesday, threatening to issue subpoenas for the complete text of the Robert Mueller report on Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election as well as a demand for disclosure of the president’s income tax documents over a six-year period.

Rep. Richard Neal, chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, formally asked the Internal Revenue Service for Trump’s tax paperwork from 2013 to 2018.

It’s the first such request for a president’s tax information in nearly half a century. Trump is the first major presidential candidate to not make public his tax returns in several decades.

Also on Tuesday, the House Judiciary Committee approved the issuance of subpoenas for the full Mueller report on a 24-17 vote. The subpoenas will not be sent immediately, pending an effort to persuade Attorney General William Barr to voluntarily release the report.
