Illinois Senate to Trump: No tax return, no spot on ballot

Mnuchin postpones decision on handing over Trump tax returns

The increasingly embattled United States president has claimed through spokespeople and through his own tweets that his tax returns can not be released because they are "under audit", although no such legal stipulation exists, according to USA tax law, cited by multiple sources.

Trump's acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, has said Democrats will "never" see the returns, "nor should they", and "they know it".

On Wednesday, Mnuchin said the Treasury was handling the request and that a deadline set for that date would be missed, citing possible constitutional issues. If the U.S. Treasury Department denies requests from Congress for the president's federal tax returns, they would at least have a chance of getting his state returns. But he said he has not personally discussed the issue with Attorney General William Barr.

Earlier this week, Mnuchin wrote to Neal that he would handle the request instead of the IRS commissioner, emphasizing that the request has an "unprecedented nature".

Marcus Smart out for 4-6 weeks
Boston will hope for a similar quick recovery from Smart, as his leadership and defensive presence is the lifeblood of the team. He tried to play through the injury, but went down again on the next possession, and had to be helped to the locker room.


In a letter to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig, Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal said the tax agency's failure to comply with the new deadline would be interpreted as a denial of his request.

Neal said that the Committee is "considering legislative proposals and conducting oversight related to our Federal tax laws, including, but not limited to, the extent to which the IRS audits and enforces the Federal tax laws against a President". Mnuchin expressed a concern over releasing the returns because of the precedent it would set and the potential for this to be used for political attacks.

But the IRS has said that he could release the returns even if they are under audit. He is visiting Midwest states Trump narrowly won and Sanders says "Together, we are going to make sure that does not happen again".

Asked repeatedly at a House hearing Tuesday whether any regulation prohibited a taxpayer from disclosing returns when under audit, Rettig responded "no".

Fisher-Price advises consumers to immediately stop using the product and call the company for a refund or voucher. Officials originally said there were 10 reports of infant deaths since 2015, all of whom were 3 months or older.


On Monday, lawmakers in NY proposed a bill that would allow the commissioner of the state's Department of Taxation and Finance to turn over state tax returns if requested by certain congressional committees.

A lawyer for President Trump likened the request to "harassment".

Trump appears prepared to fight this to the Supreme Court.

Neal has adopted a methodical approach to seeking Trump's returns.

Chelsea branded the discriminatory video "abhorrent" and an "embarrassment" to the club in a statement on Thursday night. We have also witnessed numerous hateful attacks on social media.


Neal wrote in the letter Saturday that Congress has "broad" power to investigate, and the IRS code 6103 is "unambiguous" and does not need to be reviewed by the Treasury or Justice Department.
