Sen. Pascrell Asks Ways & Means to Produce 10 Years of Trump’s Tax Returns

New Jersey Democratic Senator, Bill Pascrell has called on the ways and means committee to use a 1924 law to require the president to disclose his tax returns. The text of the tax code is set forth below. This happened on February 1st, and so far no mention in the media. Figures!

Correction 02-15-2017: Jim Pascrell is a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from New Jersey, not a Senator.
See the text of his letter to Ways & Means, on the Senator’s own website.
 
According to a press release issued by Sen. Pascrell’s office,
Current law allows the House Committee on Ways and Means, the Senate Committee on Finance, and the Joint Committee on Taxation to make such a request to allow members of the committee to review the tax documents of any individual in closed session and consider their public release. This move would allow for important Congressional oversight of potential conflicts of interest, which up to this point has not been possible because of the President’s refusal to release his tax returns.
The senator has asked for the production of 10 years’ of returns. We’ll stay on top of this to see what happens!
