The Tribune (SLO) - - News -

White House of­fi­cials said that Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump would not com­ply with a Tues­day dead­line set by House Democrats to re­lease his tax re­turns to Congress.

Trea­sury Sec­re­tary Steven Mnuchin asked for more time, say­ing in a let­ter to House Ways and Means Chair­man Richard Neal of Mas­sachusetts that he will give the panel a de­ci­sion by May 6.

The White House ex­panded another le­gal battle with the House on Tues­day, block­ing a for­mer of­fi­cial from an­swer­ing ques­tions about the of­fice that granted se­cu­rity clear­ances to of­fi­cials in­clud­ing Jared Kush­ner.
