Democrats wrong on Trump tax returns

The Washington Post reports:

House are giving the Trump administration a hard deadline of April 23 to turn over the president’s tax returns, pushing back against Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s skepticism over their request for the private records.

I’m a Never Trumper but on this issue the Democrats are the bad players.

Trump decided not to release his tax returns before the election. He was the first candidate for 40+ years not to do so. He got criticised for it, but got elected despite it.

Having politicians use an obscure power to force a political opponent’s tax returns to be published is appalling. Where will it end? Will the Democrats start to publish tax returns of journalists they don’t like?
