GOP Chairman Calls on Trump to Release Tax Info
The Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee called on Donald Trump to release his tax returns and medical records.
“If you’re going to run and try to become the president of the United States, you’re going to have to open up your kimono and show everything — your tax returns, your medical records,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz (Utah) told CNN on Wednesday.
“You’re just going to have to do that. It’s too important,” he continued. “So both candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, should show both their medical records and tax returns, absolutely.”
The Hill reports:
Trump has refused to release his tax returns during his presidential campaign, saying that he’s being audited by the IRS.
Clinton, the Democratic nominee, released her 2015 tax return earlier this month. The Clintons have made their returns public as far back as 1977.
