Examining Trump’s tax returns may be back on the table after midterm elections

Should Democrats win the House in the Midterm elections, they are quietly planning on using a nearly 100-year-old tax statute to unlock the mysteries of President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

The 1924 law would allow the chairman of Congress’ tax committees to look at anyone’s returns.

Texas Representative Lloyd Doggett told Politico that the approach would be to get all of the president’s returns, review them, and depending on what they show, release all or part of it.

The Cook Political Report says that the Democrats have a 75% chances of winning the House.

Fox News reports that while their chances of winning the Senate are much lower, even Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, says that it is a possibility.
