The Democratic-led New York State Legislature has passed a bill that would give Congress a way to obtain Trump's state tax returns. The bill is expected to be signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo. https://t.co/Q8UqWeSGjJ

-Trump said throughout 2016 that he was going to release his taxes.
-A presidential election is not a referendum on everything a candidate says and does.
-If it is, then 3 million more people voted for Trump to release his taxes. https://t.co/7y1m1cgTIq

Two major themes of Trump's presidency thus far:
1) how much of his craziest, most paranoid behavior is motivated by desire to keep his tax returns secret
2) how little curiosity the GOP's supposed "national security hawks" exhibit in finding out why https://t.co/G7wG7golDL

… We don’t know what Trump is working so hard to hide, but we have a lot of hints. They’re all troubling. Which is precisely why it’s so important that Congress — as part of its constitutionally mandated oversight duties — conduct a forensic audit of Trump’s worldwide financial dealings. That means learning whom he’s been getting money from, whom he owes money to, and what individuals or entities could be using financial influence to exert pressure over policy.
Almost as troubling as whatever it is Trump is trying to hide: Why do all those supposed national security hawks in Trump’s party exhibit so little curiosity about the answers?
