Re: Maybe Congress doesn

I have no reason to believe that anyone in Congress would want to see my tax return - they re really quite boring, even to me.

Congress has the legal right to see individual tax returns as part of an investigation and has had that right for over 100 years - this is not something new. What NY is doing is saying that "if you (Congress) need to see a NY resident's tax returns and are meeting resistance in obtaining them, we can provide you with that individual's state tax returns if certain committees request them."

Two points here: The first is that this was CLEARLY targeted at Trump; in fact, that's basically what the original bill did, but the NY Governor said he wouldn't sign such a bill, so the bill as passed doesn't name him - it applies to all NY residents.

Second, the information remains confidential, because the return can only be reviewed in executive session. Yes, Washington does leak like a sieve and the financial information will get out to the media, but the media doesn't publish personal information such as email addresses, telephone #s, SSN numbers, etc. When MSNBC got its hands on a copy of Trump's 1040 for a single year and reported on it last year, it was a redacted copy - all of that stuff was blacked out. No responsible media outlet is going to share that kind of information with the public.
