Earlier we told you that the New York State Senate had passed a bill so they could give Trump’s tax returns to Congress. Well now that bill has passed the legislature and is heading to Cuomo’s desk to sign:
NY POST – The tax filings of President Trump and all public elected officials in New York will be fair game for congressional Democrats under a new law.
The state Legislature Wednesday approved a bill that allows the state Department of Taxation and Finance to release tax returns of thousands of New Yorkers upon the official request by Congress.
Gov. Cuomo previously said would support the idea.
The newest iteration of the bill passed the Assembly in an 85 to 49 vote, and 31 to 21 in the state Senate.
An official request from the House Ways and Means, Senate Finance Committee and the Joint Committee on Taxation must be made in order to obtain Trump’s state tax return.
This isn’t about “all public officials” in New York. This is about Trump.
This is presidential harassment by Democrats in the State of New York helping Democrats in Washington fish for anything they can find to destroy Trump in the election next year. Or find ‘grounds’ to begin impeachment proceedings. It’s disgusting.
And of course Cuomo is going to sign it. He’d never risk his entire political career over a bill designed to help Democrats take out Trump.
