  • Mnuchin reaffirms Fed's independence after Trump complaints on rates

The Trump administration is discussing a thick tome of ideas with Chinese officials as the two sides seek a trade deal, with Washington expecting some elements to be resolved soon, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Thursday.

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin testifies on "The President's FY2020 Budget Proposal" before the House Ways and Means Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, on March 14, 2019.

Democrats took control of the House of Representatives this year and are expected to demand to see Trump's past tax returns, hoping the documents will help to identify any conflicts of interest posed by Trump's global business empire.

'We will protect the president as we would protect any individual taxpayer under their rights, ' Mnuchin said at a House hearing.

Democrats on the committee pressed Mnuchin repeatedly on Treasury's obligations under a complex tax provision, known as Section 6103 of the US tax code, regarding disclosure of personal tax information.

"My own opinion is that when we approve spending, we should approve raising the debt ceiling", Mr. Mnuchin said.

He pledged to fulfill his obligations if he receives a request.

William Tranghese, an aide to Neal, said "a strong case is being built" and Neal is consulting with House lawyers "to determine the appropriate legal steps to go forward with this unprecedented request".

Congressional Democrats have called on the president since the beginning of his term to make his tax returns available to the public after resisting a four-decade-long tradition of presidents submitting their return information despite not being required to do so.
