Brady Calls for Investigation into Potentially Criminal Leak of Trump’s Private Tax Info

September 28, 2020 — Press Releases   

THE WOODLANDS, TX — The top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement regarding the New York Times story on President Trump’s tax returns:

“While many critics question the article’s accuracy, equally troubling is the prospect that a felony crime was committed by releasing the private tax return information of an individual – in this case the President’s. To ensure every American is protected against the illegal release of their tax returns for political reasons, I am calling for an investigation of the source and to prosecute if the law was broken.”
