DOJ Requests More Time on Decision to Turn Over Trump Tax Returns

White House [Public Domain]

The Department of Justice has requested additional time to make its decision on fulfilling House Democrat’s request for former President Trump’s tax returns. House Democrats have been demanding Trump’s tax returns be made public since 2019.

The Hill reports:

CNN reported that lawyers for the department, along with attorneys representing the House Ways and Means Committee, said in a joint filing Wednesday that “they have had communications, and anticipate further communications, that may inform Defendants’ position in this case.”

The request is the latest move in the House’s lawsuit against the Treasury Department to enforce a subpoena for Trump’s taxes that the Treasury Department declined to comply with while Trump was in office.

DOJ lawyers said earlier this month that they would not object to a move by Trevor McFadden, a federal district judge in Washington, D.C., to extend his order through April 2 that requires the Treasury Department to give Trump’s personal lawyers 72 hours’ notice before providing the former president’s tax returns to the Ways and Means Committee.

However, lawyers for the House committee said that any additional time granted to the administration to make its decision on the tax returns “should be limited, given how long the Committee’s request has been stymied.”

Trump has fiercely fought against turning over his tax returns, breaking from precedent.

House democrats should spend their time worrying bout our country and not their hatred of a past President who was and is well loved. He did more to help this country and I think they should take a lesson and they to do the same.

Worry about the country? Democrats? Highly unlikely, since every indication is that they are trying to take the country down. Bankrupt it, make as many people as possible dependent on the government, kill jobs. You can bet that DOJ isn’t looking to protect Trump. The entire executive branch has been weaponized against Trump.

I would far rather Biden be made to take a complete physical than to see President Trump’s tax returns!

I’d bet the Delaware Dunce’s criminal profits are far outside the U.S. Income Tax Code. I’m thinking the Cayman Islands or Singapore.

I read something about that but it involved Hunter Biden. It was Cayman Islands.

we already know he lied about how much he was getting from Burisa, just to avoid child support. Now they really need to look into all his finances/bank accounts world wide. Including China and any payments that included the BIG GUY.

Well, now that President Trump’s taxes have been forced into public view, even though there is NO law that requires it, I suggest WE THE PEOPLE demand to see the tax returns of every politician that ever runs for election, or re-election, from this day forward and should any of them refuse, then let’s NOT allow their name on any ballot. Two CAN play that game.

All the Democrats on the House Committees demanding Trump’s Tax Returns should also submit their tax returns for the American People to examine! Then we will see the tax cheating Democrats at work to screw over everyone else!

I have never seen this much HATE coming from a Political Party…ever! The demented Democrats are still out of control — even though P.T. is out of office. You’d think they would back off and give him some slack, but they are OBSESSED about trying to destroy our President. Why is that?

My guess is because the Dems are worried that President Trump might just find his way back into the White House soon. They are going to do anything they can to destroy P.T.’s reputation so Americans won’t support him. Good luck with that. Most Trump supporters are in it for the long ride all the way back to the White House!

Perhaps the Demoncrats should take a closer look at Biden’s records. Now there’s a real crook for you!!! They are still trying to kill a dead horse. They have tried everything else and nothing worked. Time to realize that this has nothing to do with Trump’s taxes. What a bunch of corrupt losers these Dems are!!!

The democrats want to show how much money Donald Trump made so they can say that he only cares about himself. Donald Trump was successful in business long before becoming President Trump. He never took a paycheck while in office. His concern was putting America first. His ability to keep his promises to the American people through four years of continuous assaults built on lies was incredible. Trying to ruin him is what matters to those who hate him. These people have sold America out to domestic and foreign influence at the expense of the American people who they detest.

The Biden Family has a bunch of skeletons in their closets and probably lots of incriminating documents. The fact that both Joe and Hunter had close relationships with people in the CCP would make us wonder “HOW LEGAL ANY OF THOSE DOCUMENTS/RELATIONSHIPS WERE”?

If there is any digging into tax returns, etc., they need to start digging in Joe and Hunter’s paperwork files. I guarantee they would find so much incriminating documents they could cover the columns of the White House!

Hey! Who still has Hunter’s Computer from that repair shop? Bet there is tons of incriminating evidence on there!

I have heard NO lawful requirement for Trump to make his tax returns public for any reason – any more than my own personal tax returns are required to be made public. If I have been charged with a crime of some sort, then MAYBE those returns might be required by a prosecutor to help establish and prosecute a criminal charge that has been made public. Just what has Donald Trump been charged with, so that his tax returns MUST be made public?

And the lawyers asking for his returns would violate the law to show his records to the media. He is a private citizen, and all they are trying to do is go on a fishing expedition, trying to find something to use against him.

Does the request for Trumps tax returns violate the 4th ammendment? Not sure how this applies to papers held by a government agency that a person has no choice but to supply Tax returns. I feel they should still be protected in this situation.

“Trump has fiercely fought against turning over his tax returns, breaking from precedent.” You know who has broken from precedent? The Dems. They are breaking precedent every time Joe signs a socialist/communist executive order. This whole administration has broken precedent since they walked into this stolen election.
