Following up on Saturday's post: DOJ Says Treasury Must Give Trump’s Tax Returns To Congress: New York Times, Trump Plans to Fight The Release Of His Tax Returns to Congress:
Former President Donald J. Trump plans to fight the release of his tax returns to Congress, a lawyer for Mr. Trump said on Monday.
The comments from the lawyer, Ronald P. Fischetti, came days after a legal opinion was issued by the Justice Department that said that the Treasury Department must turn over six years of the former president’s tax returns to congressional investigators.
Mr. Fischetti on Monday called the opinion “absolutely ridiculous” and said that he expected the legal battle over the release of the returns to go on for months. “We’re going to fight this tooth and nail,” he said.
