Pelosi Statement on Tax Day


San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement on Tax Day, which falls tomorrow:

“This Tax Day serves as a sour reminder of President Trump’s disrespect for Americans’ right to know their President’s conflicts of interest.

“What are President Trump and the Republican Congress hiding?  Every President since Gerald Ford, Democrat and Republican, has released his tax returns to the public.  Despite the history, despite his own promises, President Trump and Republicans in Congress are desperate to keep the American people in the dark.

“Who does President Trump owe?  America needs to know.  All roads lead back to the President’s tax returns – and the light they can shine on his actions and the Trump-Russia connection.  Releasing the President’s tax returns is vital for our national security and our democracy.”
