White House: Congress not smart enough to assess Trump taxes

Mnuchin said the Treasury respects lawmakers' oversight duties and would make sure taxpayer protections would be "scrupulously observed, consistent with my statutory responsibilities" as the department reviews the request.

Trump weighed in, telling reporters he won't consent to discharge his yields while he is under audit earlier Wednesday.

Trump said, "I would love to give them, but I'm not going to do it while I'm under audit".

President Trump doubled-down on his previous warning to local governments that violate federal immigration laws Monday; saying illegal immigrants that can "no longer be held" will be "given" to Sanctuary Cities across the country.

The panel has given the IRS until April 23 to hand over six years' worth of Trump's personal and business filings. Trump has broken with decades of presidential precedent by not voluntarily releasing his returns to the public.

The position of trump so couldn't release his returns and has always been that he is under audit.

In a recent interview with the Post, Democratic New York Representative Kathleen Rice, who serves as chairwoman of the House Homeland Security subcommittee on border security said Miller needs to come before her panel to "make his case for these bad policies to the American people instead of being this shadow puppeteer".

"Remember, I have elected last time the exact same specific problem", Trump said. Democrats courts, frankly, keep tying the president's hands and stopping him from being able to do that.

Several immigration proposals, including some backed by the White House, failed to receive the necessary number of votes to pass Congress when Republicans controlled both chambers of Congress.

Democrats didn't expect the department to comply, but they haven't sketched out their next steps.

"We'll have to see what happens on that front", she said. "Given the seriousness of these issues, which bear no connection to actual tax administration, we have begun consultation with the Department of Justice to ensure that our response is fully consistent with the law and the Constitution", Mnuchin writes. "It doesn't say'for everyone except the president'".

When it did not honor, neal's first letter, delivered didn't lay out any implications for the IRS, and a spokesman said a course would be another, more persistent, letter. "I'll let you know fast".

Mnuchin suggested in testimony to Congress last month that he would shield the privacy of Trump if the House Democrats requested his tax returns.

Mnuchin asked for more time to respond to the request.
