The president has already been tweeting about the Mueller report this morning, ahead of two Democratic town halls today

Last night, the Treasury department declined to fulfill a deadline to provide Donald Trump’s tax returns the chairman of the House Ways and Means committee, Richard Neal, a Democrat from Massachussets.

Neal made a formal request for the return this month under a law that lets chairmen of tax-writing committees get any taxpayer’s returns, according to the Wall Street Journal. For the past 40 years, presidents and candidates have voluntarily released their tax returns.

History demonstrates that private tax return information is susceptible to abuse for partisan purposes—regardless of which party is in power. Unless carefully restrained by law, this risk threatens the privacy of all taxpayers.

Earlier this year, the Iowa Republican said the prayers of his constituents might cause House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Republican of California, to reconsider his decision to isolate him.

But the verdict didn’t change, as King told the town hall. In describing his experience on Capitol Hill, the congressman conjured a courtroom scene, evoking the trial that, in the telling of the New Testament, preceded the crucifixion, death and burial of Jesus. King called his fellow lawmakers “accusers.”
