Trump’s Lawyers Say Tax Whistleblower Is Irrelevant To Tax Return Case

Attorneys for President Donald Trump say a whistleblower’s claim that someone interfered with the Internal Revenue Service’s audit of Trump’s returns doesn’t bolster Democrats’ case for obtaining them.

 

Democrats responded that there appears to be no negotiated solution. A federal law says the administration “shall” hand over tax returns requested by Ways and Means, but Trump’s acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, has said Democrats will “never” get their hands on Trump’s taxes and the Justice Department said in a memo it would be unconstitutional to hand them over. That has left the two sides at an impasse.
