U.S. Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) issued the following statement on House Ways and Means Democrats’ decision to release President Trump’s tax return information for multiple years:

“I am deeply concerned by recent erosions of taxpayer confidentiality and the dangerous precedent today’s release sets, which undermines confidence in both our tax laws and legislature.

“Taxpayers have a fundamental right to the certainty that their tax and financial information is protected, remains confidential and will not be commandeered to target political enemies or serve other partisan political aims.

“The very section being cited today to authorize this release was specifically intended to prevent the weaponization of taxpayer information, and it is alarming to see it being used in this way.”
