Mnuchin de­fies sub­poena for Trump’s taxes

The Tribune (SLO) - - Insight -

Trea­sury Sec­re­tary Steven Mnuchin on Fri­day re­fused to com­ply with a con­gres­sional sub­poena to hand over Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s tax re­turns, a move that is likely to be the fi­nal step be­fore the mat­ter heads to the courts.

For more than a month, the Trea­sury Depart­ment and House Democrats have ex­changed let­ters about the re­quest, which was ini­ti­ated in April by Rep. Richard Neal, DMass., chair­man of the House Ways and Means Com­mit­tee.

Mnuchin said lawyers in the depart­ment con­cluded that the orig­i­nal re­quest was not le­git­i­mate.
