President's lawyer digs in on Trump tax returns saying requests have no 'legitimate legislative purpose' as six committee chairs demand full Mueller probe to make their own 'independent assessment' of obstruction allegations

President Trump's personal lawyer Jay Sekulow is denying Congress has a 'legitimate' interest in seeking the president's tax return – throwing down the gauntlet in yet another potential legal standoff over documents.

Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow made the comments as Democrats take stock of their portfolio of investigations after Attorney General William Barr's stunning summary of the Mueller probe – which indicated no finding of conspiracy with the Russian government.

Among the number of Democratic-led investigations is the push by Ways and Means Committee Democrats to finally gain hold of Trump's tax returns.
