Casey, Stabenow, Wyden, Senators Call for Review of Trump’s Tax Returns in Light of Ongoing Russia-Trump Associates Investigations
U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden (D-OR), and other Democratic Members of the Senate Finance Committee today sent a letter urging Committee Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-UT) to allow members to review President Trump’s tax returns, in light of the ongoing investigation into ties between Russia and Trump associates. U.S. Senators, Maria Cantwell (D-WA), Tom Carper (D-DE), Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Michael Bennet (D-CO) also signed the letter.
“As you are aware, there have been numerous reports in the media of the Trump Administration, the Trump campaign, and other Trump associates’ close ties to the Russian government,” the Senators said. “Given the critical issues raised by the President’s business entanglements, we respectfully request that you use this authority to obtain the tax returns of the President and his business for review by committee members in a closed executive session of the Finance Committee. If Committee members identify ties or relations to foreign governments within these documents, we will respectfully request the Chairman and members of the committee hold a vote to make that information available to the public.”
