House GOP blocks effort by Democrats to obtain Trump’s taxes

Republicans blocked both efforts, one on the House floor and the other in the House Ways and Means Committee. Democrats tried to make Trump’s taxes an issue during the presidential election, questioning his wealth and whether he donates generously to charity, as he claims. After the election, the head of the Office of Government Ethics scolded Trump for not divesting from his business, saying that’s the only way to avoid conflicts of interest. Trump’s tax returns would reveal a trove of information about his business dealings and his sources of income.
