House Committee Receives Six Years of Trump's Tax Returns

The House Ways and Means Committee received six years of former President Donald Trump's federal tax returns following a Supreme Court ruling last week.

The tax returns were reportedly shared with the committee on Wednesday, provided by the Treasury Department.

"Last month, Chief Justice John Roberts granted a stay, temporarily blocking the former president from having to turn over his tax records to Democrats on the committee," Fox News reported.

"Trump, who announced his 2024 presidential campaign earlier this month, had asked the Supreme Court to block the release of his tax records," it added.

"Ways and Means Committee members are meeting Thursday, and lawmakers expect to learn more about Trump’s taxes then, a Democrat on the panel said," according to NBC News.

“I’m not sure yet if we will see his taxes then or if we are just going to be walked through them,” the lawmaker said.

It remains uncertain what House Democrats plan to do with the documents. With Republicans gaining control of the House in January, there may be pressure to act quickly.

Democrats first sought access to Trump's tax records in 2019 when he was still serving as president. The move was made after Democrats won the House during the 2018 midterms and challenged the secrecy behind Trump's tax records.

The concerns are now different as the left seeks to discredit Trump as he starts his 2024 White House bid.
