Treasury and IRS to Miss Trump Tax Return Subpoena Deadline

The House Ways and Means Committee subpoenaed the treasury secretary and IRS commissioner earlier this month for Trump's tax returns from the last six years, following a request made to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in early April.
In his letter Friday saying he would not comply with the subpoena, Mnuchin said he had consulted with the Justice Department and had been advised that he was not authorized to turn over the tax returns because Neal's request did not represent a legitimate congressional goal.

She said the UAE was co-operating closely with Saudi Arabia , Norway, France, and the United States to investigate the incident. Iraq is home to powerful pro-Iranian militias, while also hosting more than 5,000 American troops.
But, the disregard for the subpoena brings into sharper focus the eventual court fight and raises questions about what Neal might do next.
Neal added, "Given the Treasury Secretary's failure to comply today, I am consulting with counsel on how best to enforce the subpoenas moving forward".
"I don't see that right now as an option", Neal told reporters Friday, even though he said he did not expect him to comply with the subpoena. The Treasury secretary has warned that allowing House Democrats to retrieve the president's tax returns would open the door to lawmakers from both parties politicizing the Internal Revenue Service in the future. The law provides clear statutory authority for the Chair of the Ways and Means Committee to request and receive access to tax returns and return information. "I sincerely hope that the Treasury Department will furnish the requested material in the next week so the committee can quickly begin its work". As part of their lead-off ethics package, which Trump's lawyers cited in their filing Wednesday, Democrats' legislation required presidents to disclose at least 10 years of their tax returns to the public, in what was an apparent swipe at Trump.
Mnuchin argued that Congress doesn't have a "legitimate legislative purpose" in requesting the president's private information.
Trump is not inclined to respond forcefully unless there is a "big move" from the Iranians, a senior White House official said. Senior State Department officials told reporters that the evacuation as a prudent step in "light of credible threat streams".
