Judge Temporarily Blocks New York From Releasing Trump's Tax Returns
By Pete Williams
“We look forward to continuing to make our case in court. This law is constitutional, and we will vigorously defend it,” said Letitia James, New York's attorney general.
The judge set arguments on the issue for Aug. 29.
The House Ways and Means Committee has been trying since April to get access to the president's federal tax returns, citing a federal law that allows inspection of the documents to verify that the IRS is properly auditing a president's returns. But the Treasury Department denied the request, saying that it served no legitimate legislative purpose.
