Head of one of the most powerful congressional committees says he won’t seek Trump’s tax returns

“Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, R-Texas, said he will not call on the Treasury secretary to compel President Trump to release his tax returns, nor will he take any other action to force the issue.

“My belief is that if Congress begins to use its power to rummage around in the tax returns of the president, what prevents Congress from doing the same to average Americans?” Brady said on Monday. “Privacy and civil liberties are still important rights in this country and Ways and Means Committee is not going to start to weaken that.” ”
