Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin Holds His Ground
Smacks Down Democrat Lawmaker Gunning For Trump’s Tax Returns
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and IRS Chief Rettig appeared on Capitol Hill Wednesday to testify before the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee.
The rabid Democrats are gunning for President Trump’s tax returns and Steve Mnuchin basically told them to pound sand.
Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) angrily grilled Mnuchin about Trump’s tax returns and even rattled off how “crook” Richard Nixon underpaid his taxes — this is all for show.
Citing the New York Times report on Trump’s tax documents from 1985 to 1994, Van Hollen suggested Trump dodged paying his ‘fair share’ in taxes because he used LEGAL tax shelters.
Mnuchin did not budge and lectured the Democrat Senator on the separate branches of government.
Secretary Mnuchin told Van Hollen that he’s prepared to take the battle for Trump’s taxes to court.
