Acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney says that Democrats will “never” see President Trump’s tax returns.
Well, that’s bound to piss off a lot of dems!
The statement comes just days after a House Democrat committee chairman made the unprecedented demand that the IRS provide the documents.
“Democrats are demanding that the IRS turn over the documents. That is not going to happen, and they know it. This is a political stunt,” Mulvaney said.
House Democrats said in early March they will be demanding Trump to release his tax returns, ramping up their investigations into the president.
“We’re almost ready to go,” Democratic New Jersey Rep. Bill Pascrell told Politico in March when asked about Trump’s tax returns.
Democrats have been pushing for the release of Trump’s tax returns since he announced his candidacy for president.
This all comes as House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, a New York Democrat, requested a number of documents from the White House and is sending letters seeking information from people and organizations close to Trump.
Mulvaney added that Democrats “know” they won’t get the returns, and “just want attention on the issue because they don’t want to talk to us about policy.” A “fundamental” purpose of tax law, Mulvaney continued, is to protect the privacy of tax filers, Fox News reports.
“If they don’t get what they want in the Mueller report, they’re going to ask for the taxes,” Mulvaney said. “If they don’t get what they want in the taxes, they’re going to ask for something else. It doesn’t surprise anybody.”
Separately, Mulvaney charged that Democrats suffer from “Trump Derangement Syndrome” and were “blindsided” by Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings that the Trump team had not colluded illegally with Russia.
Mulvaney also sounded a critical note on the 2020 Democrat presidential field, telling Hemmer “it’s fun watching them implode,” and that the party’s leading candidates seem to want to “Make America Apologize Again” on an array of issues.
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
