Pelosi: Trump's Tax Returns 'One of First Things We'd Do' if We Retake House

If Democrats take control following the 2018 midterms, will they...

A. Strengthen the economy
B. Focus on jobs
C. Fight terrorism, increase national security
D. Improve energy independence
E. Investigate President Trump and go after his tax returns.

We all know the answer, they have absolutely no agenda, but to go after Donald Trump.

Working to obtain President Trump’s tax returns will be one of the Democrats’ first orders of business if they retake the House in the midterm elections, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday.

It’s “one of the first things we’d do — that’s the easiest thing in the world. That’s nothing,” the California Democrat told The San Francisco Chronicle’s editorial board.

“We have to have the truth,” she said.

Mrs. Pelosi appeared confident that would happen less than four weeks from now, saying the Democrats would undoubtedly win “if the election was today.”

“I believe I will be speaker if we win,” she said as some Democrats have been reluctant to back her as speaker amid a deepening fracture within the party separating the leftists from moderates.


Expect a fight....

Even though a 1924 provision of the Internal Revenue Code gives certain congressional committees the right to request — and release — the tax records of even the president, it’s unlikely Trump would surrender those documents without an all-out legal battle. He has refused to release his returns since he announced he was running for president, arguing first that he was being audited and later that voters don’t care.
