Transparency in the Trump Administration

Demanding President Trump’s Tax Returns

Since the Watergate era, every candidate for president has released their tax returns with one exception – Donald Trump. President Trump is not above the law and confronts numerous conflicts of interest. Americans have the right to know the basic and critical information from presidential candidates contained in their tax returns. They are running to represent us in the highest office in the land with its unique responsibilities, duties, and burdens like no other in the world. I have led multiple efforts in the Ways and Means Committee and on the floor of the House to obtain President Trump’s tax returns and support legislation to require all future presidential candidates to release their returns.

Independent Investigation into Russian Interference

U.S. intelligence agencies agree that Russia interfered in the 2016 election. Since last November, I have called for a non-partisan, independent, comprehensive investigation of Russian interference. While I hope that Special Counsel Robert Mueller will have all the resources necessary to conduct a full and thorough, unimpeded inquiry, continuing revelations have reinforced the need for an independent commission to complete an investigation. I support efforts to restore confidence in our democracy.
