The House Ways & Means Committee has obtained six years of former president Donald Trump’s tax returns after a yearslong effort to obtain them, CNN reported.
The Treasury Department confirmed to CNN that it complied with a court order to hand over the returns to the committee, mostly from his time serving as president.
The delivery came after comes after the Supreme Court declined to intervene to prevent the handing over of the tax returns, despite the fact that the former president nominated three of the six conservative justices on the nine-member bench.
Mr Trump refused to release his tax returns when he ran for president in 2016, saying that he was being audited by the Internal Revenue Services at the time.
