It has been a long time coming, but Trump’s tax returns have finally been handed over to a committee of the US House of Representatives after the former president lost his battle to keep them secret and sealed. The Treasury Department has now confirmed that they have indeed complied with the recent Supreme Court order that Mr. Trump’s tax records should be handed over to a panel in the Democrat-controlled House.
So far we don’t know what the tax returns will reveal about Trump’s financial status and how much tax he has paid over the last eight years. We also don’t know if whatever is discovered in the returns will be released to the public. There is still a chance that they may be leaked at some stage. Although Trump had repeatedly said he has done nothing wrong, in a very un-Trumpian move, he has yet to comment on this news.
