Steve Mnuchin refuses subpoena request for Trump tax retunsTreasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Friday defied a subpoena from House Democrats for President Trump's tax returns, a move that's likely to trigger a court battle for the documents.

“We are unable to provide the requested information in response to the Committee’s subpoena,” Mnuchin said in a letter to House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.).

Mnuchin reiterated in the letter that Treasury has determined that Neal's request "lacks a legitimate legislative purpose."

Both Mnuchin and Neal have said they think the dispute will be decided in the courts. Neal told reporters hours before Mnuchin sent his letter that Democrats “will likely proceed to court as quickly as next week."
