Shall Still Means Shall: Doggett on Lawsuit to Obtain Trump Tax Returns

Washington, D.C. — Today, Congressman Doggett (D-TX) a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee, who previously made six attempts to secure President Trump’s tax returns, issued the following statement:

“This long overdue legal action is needed to keep this bad president from setting a bad precedent. It should not take a court order to affirm that ‘shall’ means ‘shall.’ But Trump will do what it takes to delay the inevitable, hiding his tax returns as long as he can. Republican silence and Democratic timidity will not produce the documents we need to ensure accountability. Trump must learn that no President can ignore laws he doesn’t like.”
