This is exactly what Trump was talking about when he said that Democrats were going to harass him. I believe his exact term for this was “presidential harassment”:
AUBURN PUB – New York’s Democrat-controlled Senate approved a bill easily Wednesday that would allow three congressional committees to get access to President Donald Trump’s state tax returns, giving Democrats a potential end-run around the administration’s refusal to disclose the president’s federal returns.
The bill, which now goes to the Democrat-led state Assembly, doesn’t target Trump by name, but would authorize state tax officials to release returns filed by seven different types of state and federal officeholders if requested by the leaders of the House Ways and Means Committee, the Senate Finance Committee or the Joint Committee on Taxation.
The law would apply to returns filed by the U.S. president and vice president, U.S. senators, or the state’s governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general or comptroller.
It would include filings related to personal income taxes, real estate taxes and corporate income taxes and cover up to five years of returns before the person took office.
This is unbelievable. Democrats are hell bent on destroying Trump and they don’t care how hyper-partisan it makes them look.
Can you imagine something like this every happening to Obama? He refused to release his academic record and his birth certificate and to this day Democrats have never done anything even remotely like this to force the release of his private records.
It’s absolutely shameful and I have a strong feeling that it will only help Trump in 2020.
