[Ed. – The witch hunt will have little rules.]
U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden, a Trump-appointee, ordered the Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service in a hearing Friday to give Trump’s personal lawyers 72 hours notice if it decides to provide the tax returns to the House Committee on Ways and Means.
Committee Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass., has sought the returns to conduct oversight and consider legislation related to how the IRS enforces tax laws against a president.
The committee filed a lawsuit in 2019 against the Treasury Department and IRS to obtain six years of Trump’s personal tax returns and some of his business returns after they refused to comply with requests and subpoenas.
