Democrats are eager to peek into President Trump’s tax returns with their newfound power in the House.

Rep. Richard Neal of Massachusetts, the top Democrat in the Ways and Means Committee who is poised now to become chairman, has said that he intends to formally request the president’s tax returns. News outlets projected Tuesday evening that Democrats would wrest control of the lower chamber from the GOP.

While it’s clear that Neal would have the power to make that request, it’s unclear whether the Trump administration would fulfill it. Secretary Steven Mnuchin has said he would review such a request with the department’s legal counsel, paving the way for a potential court fight. For his part, Trump told reporters this week, “I can do whatever I want” with regards to tax return requests.
