Trump's tax returns released

Democrats in Congress released six years of former President Donald Trump's tax returns on Friday, the culmination of a yearlong effort to learn about the finances of a former business mogul who broke decades of political precedent when he refused to voluntarily disclose the information while seeking the White House.

The disclosures, which include redactions of certain sensitive personal information, such as Social Security and bank account numbers, are from 2015 to 2020. They span nearly 6,000 pages, including more than 2,700 pages of individual disclosures for Trump and his wife, Melania, and more. than 3,000 pages in disclosures for Trump's business entities.

Its release follows a party-line vote in the House Ways and Means Committee last week to make the findings public. Democrats on the committee argued that transparency and the rule of law were at stake, while Republicans countered that the release would set a dangerous precedent regarding the loss of privacy protections.

Trump had refused to release his returns when he ran for president and had fought a legal battle to keep them secret while in the White House. But the Supreme Court ruled last month that he had to turn them over to the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee.
