On Thursday, Senator Dianne Feinstein told CNN Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee may issue a subpoena on President Trump’s tax returns.
Below is a clip of CNN’s Manu Raju reporting Feinstein’s comments.
Well its possible that she could be successful subpoenaing Donald Trump for those tax returns.
She said “we’re not there yet,” but it is a “distinct possibility.”

Raju also spoke to GOP Senator Susan Collins, saying she is also open to the idea.
The Hill reported Representative Lloyd Doggett had an amendment that would request his returns.
Rep. Lloyd Doggett (D-Texas) offered an amendment during the Ways and Means Committee’s markup of legislation to repeal and replace ObamaCare that evening. It requested Trump’s tax returns from the Treasury Department for his panel’s review.
The demand for Trump’s taxes followed many months of mounting pressure to see what is in them.
On Sunday, New York Times reporter Nicholas Kristof solicited the IRS to send him the returns.
But if you're in IRS and have a certain president's tax return that you'd like to leak, my address is: NYT, 620 Eighth Ave, NY NY 10018. https://t.co/ujYe100Tn9

Obtaining tax returns through leaking them is a felony that includes a stiff prison sentence.
Did you hear the mainstream media cover this? Probably not, because Democrats at the New York Times get a pass.
Imagine the outrage from the media if it was a conservative reporter from Fox News making the solicitation.
Trump said he would release his returns after the completion of an IRS audit, but changed his mind ever since.
Although not required by law, if he has nothing to hide, releasing it would put an end to this.
