Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Treasury Department must comply with the law and release Donald Trump’s tax returns to the House Ways and Means Committee:
“Today’s decision ordering the release of Donald Trump’s tax returns to the House Ways and Means Committee is an important victory for the rule of law.
“Access to the former president’s tax returns is crucial to upholding the public interest, our national security and our Democracy. We look forward to the IRS complying with this ruling and delivering the requested documents so that Ways and Means can begin its oversight responsibilities of the mandatory presidential audit program.
“On behalf of the House, I applaud Chairman Richie Neal for his patient and principled pursuit of the truth, as part of the House’s ongoing fight to advance cleaner government For The People.”
