Mnuchin Determined To Protect Trump's Tax Returns From Prying Eyes Of Congressional Dems
U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Thursday that he would shield President Donald Trump’s tax returns from Congress.
According to Reuters, Mnuchin's remarks could be signalling the administration’s approach to an expected request from congressional Democrats.
During testimony in the House of Representatives, Mnuchin told the House tax committee that he would follow the law upon receiving a request for tax returns.
However, he also said he would protect Trump’s privacy rights as well.
