Liberal group presses Democratic chairman to file lawsuit for Trump's tax returns quickly
Kabuki for the rubes. As I recall, it was the Secretary of the Treasury who said Congress has no legitimate interest to see such things, and therefore the president’s tax returns will not be shared with them.
[THEHILL] The Red Guards liberal group Stand Up America
501(c)(4) non-profit organization founded in the weeks after the 2016 U.S. presidential election to resist Donald Trump's election agenda. It began as a Facebook community started by Sean Eldridge, which grew to over a million people, and evolved into a national advocacy campaign focused on resisting the president's alleged corruption, ties to Russia, and his legislative agenda. It was part of the People's Defense Coalition, which tried to block the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. The group helped organize the national Tax March on April 15, 2017, which called for the release of Trump's tax returns, and in May 2017, the group launched a national campaign demanding an independent investigation into Trump's ties to Russia. The group supports the Not One Penny campaign, opposing tax cuts for the wealthy...
announced on Wednesday that it's launching a new campaign to pressure House Boodle Central Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.) to immediately file a lawsuit over the Treasury Department's failure to comply with his requests for President Trump's tax returns.

Stand Up America said that its campaign will involve volunteers sending text messages to people in Neal's district, urging them to contact the congressman's office to demand that he promptly file the lawsuit.

Stand Up America's new effort comes one month after Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin rejected Neal's subpoena for six years of Trump's tax returns. Earlier this month, the House passed a resolution that gives committee chairmen more legal authority to enforce subpoenas.

In 2016, Trump became the first major party presidential nominee in decades to decline to release his returns, which Democrats say must be examined for instances of corruption or conflict of interest.

Neal has taken a careful approach to seeking Trump's tax returns, and he has said that he plans to file a lawsuit in the near future. But some progressives have been frustrated with the pace that Neal has taken on the tax-return issue and want him to move more quickly.

"The House of Representatives handed Chairman Neal the power to take Secretary Mnuchin to court to get Trump’s tax returns ‐ and he should use it," Stand Up America front man Ryan Thomas said. "Every day that Neal delays this process further, the Trump administration is able to make a mockery of Congress and deprive the American people of the transparency they deserve."

#2 Neal might be a little concerned about what his tax returns would show.

#3 Since the President is not legally obligated to show the tax returns this is nothing. It is funny how the withholding the tax returns acts as a red flag the way Obama's grades did.
