The IRS works for President Trump, Congress has zero authority to demand those returns, for any reason......... - Stan -
    read the article, apparently there is some old law that states that the IRS will give over to congress any tax return they request. Doesn't make it right and will get challenged in court but it is still a law.

    Let the game begin.
    Thank you, I didn't know that.
    Humble yourself, for there is an enormous change coming.

I hope Trump keeps it up, if the democrats are bitching about his tax returns that means they are not into some other kind of mischief.
    The only thing a court order would be used to obtain someone's tax return, would be if they were under a criminal investigation of some type - RICO case like they use on the big drug dealers, or money laundering. Since there is no crime under investigation regarding Donald Trump - in his personal financial dealings before, or later as President, no court or Grand Jury, or Congress can obtain them if he doesn't want them released. Bummer Obama weaponized the IRS during his Presidency to attack conservative groups, and as usual, got away with it. Shortly- you will see the "Gang Of 12" cabal, of the DOJ, FBI, CIA which attempted to overthrow the government, facing major jail time and convictions for treason. They will start at the bottom, and work their way up to the top echelon "elite" bureaucrats who thought they could overthrow America's choice for the Presidency. When William Barr actually starts doing the job Jeff Sessions refused to do, and they start granting selected immunity to some of the smaller conspirator's, criminal convictions will abound, and the "house of cards will crumble" as major figures start doing the perp walk. It will be entertaining and refreshing to watch Hillary and Bill collapse on Federal courthouse steps being brought in. The idiot Democrats in the House of Representatives will scream - and nobody will be listening, and even the corrupt media could have some of their members charged.

    So what are the Dims going to do...if the Tax Gestapo does not release Trump's taxes?

    Stomp their feet, moan, and flop, in front of the cameras on the set of CNN???
    Al Swearengen: What's your partner so mad about all the time?
    Sol Star: He's not mad.
    Al Swearengen: He's got a mean way of being happy.

    That 'law' in 1923, iirc, was overturned the following year.

    Hopefully...or stomp their mouths some more!

    Feet or mouth, both will be entertaining.

    The IRS has been auditing Trumps taxes for years.

    What does Congress think they are going to find that the IRS hasn't already seen?

    The Democrat House is always demanding something from somebody as if their authority supersedes all others...To coin a phrase from a popular commercial they need to "stay in their lane"....It's not within their power and they know it.It's all political chest thumping.
