Republicans warn going after Trump’s tax returns could ‘open a Pandora’s Box’

WASHINGTON — Republicans warned Thursday that if Democrats start to go after the president’s tax returns it will “open a Pandora’s Box” and accused Democrats of “weaponizing tax laws to attack a political foe.”

The Ways and Means Oversight Subcommittee held a hearing on presidential and vice presidential release of tax returns Thursday afternoon. It was the first official step the Democratic-led House took towards trying to obtain Trump’s tax returns, though a modest one.

“He was used to serving with a Republican Congress, House and Senate that was a rubber stamp to him. That won’t be the case,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told USA TODAY in an exclusive interview just before she took power at the start of the year. “Oversight of government by the Congress is our responsibility.”
