Pelosi Introduces Bill To Force Trump, Pence To Release Tax Information. Congress Exempt

CNBC reported that Sarbannes said in a statement that “Once we clean up Washington and get special interests out of the way, we can get to work on a whole host of important issues that Americans care about.” However, from the items specified in the bill’s summary, it appears more like it is about addressing the Democrats’ “special interests.”

One glaring example of that is found in Title X – Presidential Transparency. In the summary, it reads simply as “Requires sitting presidents and vice presidents, as well as candidates for the presidency and vice presidency, to release their tax returns.”

Forcing President Donald Trump to release his tax returns was a talking point used in the 2018 mid-term elections by Democrats. Of note is the fact that Congress is not held to the same standard.

There is nothing in the bill summary indicating any mandate that candidates for Congress release their tax returns. Members of Congress are sometimes held in suspicion by the American public over the fact that a number of them become millionaires while serving in office, despite insufficient government pay to accomplish such a thing.
