White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders would not say Sunday whether President Trump will order the Internal Revenue Service not to release his tax returns to House Democrats as they renew their efforts to force the disclosure.

Democratic Rep. Richard Neal, a strong House chairman, has requested the IRS to turn over six years of this president's tax returns from the close of the day. Now, the president's lawyers are telling the firm that there could be consequences if they comply with a subpoena from the Democrat-controlled body that expected to be issued on Monday.

Speaking about the latest request, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said Saturday that as he has "emphasized in the past, I think the request raises some very complex issues".

"We are deeply troubled by multiple reports, recently confirmed by the President, that the Trump Administration is considering releasing detained immigrants into congressional districts represented by Democrats in a weird and unlawful attempt to score political points", the chairmen wrote.

President Donald Trump is pictured walking to Marine One. Nonetheless, the Commissioner retained his defense that Treasury supervises the IRS.

Neal argues that the language in the law unambiguously mandates the IRS to provide the tax returns to the committee upon request, that the IRS can not legally question the committee's objective, and that "concerns about what the committee may do with the tax returns and return information are baseless". "We shall inspect the petition and we will stick to the law... and now we will protect the president as we would protect any taxpayer" about their right to privacy, Mnuchin said.

"I am aware that concerns have been raised regarding my request and the authority of the committee", Neal wrote.

AAF to suspend operations
Tom Dundon may have gutted the league of its technology, but he also lost a reported $70 million so far trying to keep it afloat. If this is the end of the AAF, then it won't have lasted even as long as the original XFL did which was one season.

Mr Neal is relying on a 1920s-era law that says the IRS "shall furnish" any tax return requested by the chairmen of key House and Senate committees.

He said the administration is "analyzing the law" and consulting with the Department of Justice over whether the returns must be turned over. Cohen said the president feared that releasing his returns could lead to an audit and IRS tax penalties.

"Please know that, if you fail to comply, your failure will be interpreted as a denial of my request", he wrote.

Trump broke with a decades-old precedent by refusing to release his returns as a presidential candidate in 2016 and continues to do so as president, saying his tax returns are under IRS audit.

The White House did not respond as to if the president asked Mnuchin or even the IRS head to intervene.

More recently, he has been a firm proponent inside the White House of adopting a zero-tolerance approach at the U.S. -Mexico border to deter asylum seekers streaming toward the United States from Central America.
