How will Donald Trump weasel his way out of this?
Jason Chaffetz, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, has said that Donald Trump must release his tax returns and medical records. Chaffetz said, “If you’re going to run and try to become the president of the United States, you’re going to have to open up your kimono and show everything — your tax returns, your medical records.”
Chaffetz continued, “You’re just going to have to do that. It’s too important. So both candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, should show both their medical records and tax returns, absolutely.”
Trump has refused to release his tax returns during his presidential campaign, saying that he’s being audited by the IRS.
Hillary Clinton released her 2015 tax return earlier this month. The Clintons have made their returns public as far back as 1977.
