Sen. Hawley Says Democrats Misled Courts in Obtaining Trump’s Tax Information

Josh Hawley, R-Mo., questions Attorney General nominee William Barr during a Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington. Hawley is facing conservative backlash after raising concerns with President Donald Trump's nominee to a high-profile appeals court. The Judicial Crisis Network on Monday announced plans to spend $500,000 on Missouri ads to sway Hawley to support D.C.-area U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals nominee Neomi Rao.

(Missourinet) Missouri U-S Senator Josh Hawley says he doesn’t understand why Democrats on the U-S House Ways and Means Committee released personal tax information from former president Donald Trump

“It sounds like to me is that what they wanted — why they wanted these tax returns from the beginning was just to make them public…which is kind of a sham, because I’m pretty sure they told the courts the reason that their subpoenas ought to be enforced is because they needed them for investigative purposes. But as soon as they got them, they’re just releasing them. So that tells me that they basically misled all these courts and they never had any purpose for them, other than just putting them out in public.”

Hawley says Democrats are setting a precedent “they’ll come to regret,” as Republicans get ready to take control of the U-S House next month. Many of them are promising to investigate President Biden and his family.
