Pelosi Statement on Biden Administration DOJ Ordering Release of Trump Tax Returns [View all]

Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement after the Biden Administration’s Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel issued an opinion directing the Treasury Department to comply with the law and accede to Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richie Neal’s request to release Donald Trump’s tax returns to the Ways and Means Committee:

“Today, the Biden Administration has delivered a victory for the rule of law, as it respects the public interest by complying with Chairman Neal’s request for Donald Trump’s tax returns. As Speaker, on behalf of the House of Representatives, I applaud Chairman Neal for his dignified pursuit of the truth and the Biden Administration Department of Justice for its respect for the law.

“Access to former President Trump’s tax returns is a matter of national security. The American people deserve to know the facts of his troubling conflicts of interest and undermining of our security and democracy as president.

“The House will always fight to expose the truth For The People.”

Go Sister Nancy - keep those boots on his neck
