It was confirmed today that the Treasury Department has given Trump’s taxes to the Democrat House Ways and Means Committee.
Six years worth of Trump’s taxes.
The IRS just gave 6 years of Donald Trump's tax returns to the House Ways and Means Committee.
How long until someone “leaks” them?

Here’s more from CNN:
The House Ways and Means Committee now has six years of Donald Trump’s federal tax returns, ending a yearslong pursuit by Democrats to dig into one of the former president’s most closely guarded personal details.
“Treasury has complied with last week’s court decision,” a Treasury spokesperson told CNN on Wednesday.
The spokesperson did not provide any additional information. Federal courts had decided the House could request six years of Trump’s returns, after the committee had requested them in 2019 and again in 2021, according to public court records.
Treasury declined to say whether the committee members have accessed the documents, according to a Treasury official.
The committee, led by Democratic Rep. Richard Neal of Massachusetts, had sought six years of Trump’s tax records, primarily from the time he served as president. That included records about both Trump personally and several of his corporate entities.
The panel is planning to meet Thursday to get briefed on the legal ramifications of the section of the tax law that Neal used to request Trump’s tax returns, according to a Neal aide.
Democrats are not expected to review the tax returns at this session, and the documents are not expected to be immediately released to the public.
House general counsel Doug Letter plans to brief the panel about section 6103 of the tax law at the meeting, which is a weekly session that Democrats on the committee have when they’re not on recess.
I’m quite sure we’ll be reading articles about Trump’s taxes by the weekend. Because that’s the goal here, to destroy Trump.
He’s already announced his candidacy for 2024 and Democrats will be leaking items before long. This is nothing more than the politics of destruction at its worst.
This really sets a terrible precedent. However there is another way to look at it:
The court ordering Trump to turn over his taxes sets a new and enforceable precedent…Now Joe, Hunter, Clinton and all the rest are subject to the same maneuver, and right on time. Nice move:)
