I’m not sure how they find it insufficient. It’s everything that there is.

If so, what is he withholding?

Just because the statute gives Congress an explicit right to the returns, and doesn’t set any conditions on the right to receive them, why let a little thing like that stand in the way?

(Remember when Trump raised his hands and swore to see that the laws are “faithfully executed?”)

“I’m not sure how they find it insufficient."

That means you’re not professional. So leave it to the Congress and STFU.

Yeah, nothing “implied” in that law. What a self-righteous little prick.

Mulvaney added: “and we don’t recognize any law to the contrary. Laws that aren’t supported by Trump can be ignored.”

Mulvany, who has now replaced Rudy as “Trump’s Bestest Bitch” sure thought the House had unlimited prerogative when he was in that chamber. Tea party corksoaker.

They do have a — they do have a right — by the way, it’s not in the Constitution. It’s been implied in the Constitution by the Supreme Court to have some oversight.”

Mick Mulvaney [back when he still occasionally told the truth] in 2016:

“Yes, I am supporting Donald Trump, but I’m doing so despite the fact that I think HE’S A TERRIBLE HUMAN BEING.”
“Do I like Donald Trump? No… Donald Trump is absolutely not a role model for my son."

–> More of THAT Mick Mulvaney, please.

One condition the courts have imposed: the requested information must serve a legitimate legislative purpose.

(Whereas if the request were made under the auspices of impeachment, that condition might not apply.)

Life in Mulvaney’s World, where only the ‘Entitled’ are ‘entitled’.

Perhaps one day we’ll get to see Mulvaney impersonate his look alike from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

claiming they are not “entitled to see them by law.”

Ah, a 1924 law explicitly states Congress can do just that.

The underlying evidence that Congress would need to formulate a decision on impeachment. Other than that, “essentially” nothing.

Only a ratfcker as unrepentant as Mick Mulvaney could say “It’s everything that there is” about a redacted report.

There was no IRS when the Constitution was written, and as Congress has no authority except that given under the Constitution, they have no right to request to see tax returns.

It’s simple, really.
