Mnuchin: ‘I am not violating the law’ by refusing to hand over Trump’s tax returns

Steve Mnuchin lies to CongressTreasury  Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Wednesday rebuffed claims by House  Democrats that his refusal to comply with a congressional request for President Donald Trump’s personal tax returns is a violation of the law.

“Absolutely  not,” said Mnuchin during a House Financial Services Committee hearing.  “I have been advised I am not violating the law. I would have never  done anything to violate the law. Quite the contrary, I was advised had I  turned them over I would be violating the law.”

Trump’s  top finance chief was repeatedly pressed by House Democrats over his  decision last week to refuse to turn over Trump’s tax returns under an  obscure law that specifies the Treasury secretary “shall furnish” the  information requested by the heads of the tax-writing committees.
