Rep. Woodall: Dems Trying to 'Weaponize' Tax Code Against Trump

Rep. Rob Woodall, R-Ga., said Democrats' request for President Donald Trump’s tax returns is an attempt “to weaponize” the tax code.

Woodall made his comments during a Thursday interview for Hill-TV.

“We’re politicizing the tax system,” Woodall said. “Presidents have never been forced to release it, they volunteered to release those tax returns.

“To see what the Ways and Means Committee is doing, now to use its Article 1 power to weaponize the tax code is really disturbing.”

Rep. Richard Neal, D-Mass., chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, has asked the Internal Revenue Service for six years of Trump’s personal and business tax returns.

But Woodall said he hoped the push for the president’s tax return will subside.

“I hope it’s just a sign of this first quarter outrage and that we’ll quickly move past that and get into the things the Ways and Means Committee needs to be working on like trade, like tax policies, like healthcare,” he said.
