[Ed. – See, the thing of it is, is: the Speaker is third in the line of presidential succession.  That actually makes a strong argument that if presidential and vice presidential candidates have to release their tax returns, anyone bucking for Speaker should have to as well.]

Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.) said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) should not be required to release her income tax returns, although Pelosi and House Democrats want to legally require President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to release their tax returns under H.R. 1. …

Chu said, “No, I don’t think so, because I – unless she’s running for president.”

“See, the whole point of this is, these are the people who make the decisions at the very top,” said Congresswoman Chu. “And for 40 years the president has released the tax returns and there’s good reason for doing that, because the American people need to have faith that their president is acting on their behalf and not his own behalf.”
