Talks among White House officials and GOP lawmakers have continued during the break, but there have been no tangible signs that they've found a way to reverse what has been a damaging defeat for President Donald Trump and congressional leaders.
"It's the same thing that was discussed during the campaign: The president is under audit", Spicer said Monday when asked if Trump would release his 2016 returns.
The two aren't equivalent.
A GOP plan in the House of Representatives Republican plan is pinned down under fire from the left and the right. When the topic came up during the town hall in Denair, Denham replied by saying he's "not going to ask the previous president that I served under to show his birth certificate any more than I would ask this president to show his taxes".
Indian businessmen caught on the wrong side of the law
As Mallya is fighting the extradition order, he will have the right to appeal and the case can go up to the UK Supreme Court. The Indian government has since revoked his Indian passport, but he has repeatedly dismissed all charges against him.
The IRS said a year ago that an audit does not prevent individuals from releasing their tax returns. But Denham's comment overlooks that Trump has sought to repeal the only part of the tax code that required him to pay any income taxes at all in 2005 - the individual alternative minimum tax, or AMT.
President Trump has taken a lot of heat for not releasing his tax returns, but Press Secretary Sean Spicer reiterated on Monday, that "the president is under audit", and therefore cannot release his returns.
Donald Trump looks to be delivering yet another goose egg on the Republican agenda-tax reform is now on life support, a partial casualty of Trump's ongoing refusal to share his own tax returns with the public. A lot confusion exists around the notion of a border tax because at various times President Trump has used the term in a manner different from what is intended by many in Congress. President Trump has used the term "border tax" to refer to what is commonly known as a tariff on imported goods.
