House Democrats are trying to get their hands on former President Trump’s tax records. The House Oversight Committee has reissued a subpoena for the records as part of its investigation. They’re looking into presidential conflicts of interest and emoluments.
Democratic Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney said they have been denied key information that will help them address the ethics crisis created by Trump. The committee first issued the subpoena to Trump’s accounting firm in April 2019, but that expired with the new Congress.
The move follows the Supreme Court’s ruling requiring Trump to hand his taxes over to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.
