President Donald Trump refused to say he would comply with newly-empowered Democrats if they exercise their power under the law to get hold of his tax returns.
With Democrats soon to take over the House and its investigatory and oversight power, Trump got asked whether he would block Democrats or allow them to have his returns. Existing law states they can require the administration to hand over any return.
‘If I were finished with the audit, I would have an open mind to it,’ Trump said, repeating his claim from two years ago that he would voluntarily release his return when he is no longer under audit.
‘They’re under audit, they have been for a long time. They’re extremely complex. People wouldn’t understand them,’ Trump said.
