On Monday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed a bill that would allow certain members of Congress to access President Donald Trump’s New York state tax returns.
The bill requires New York officials to release tax returns of public officials that have been requested by “congressional tax-related committees” that have cited “specified and legitimate legislative purpose” in seeking them.
One of Trump’s personal lawyers, Jay Sekulow, called the bill “more presidential harassment” on Monday afternoon. “We will respond to this as appropriate,” he added.
