BREAKING: Senate Finance Committee Member to Block Trump Treasury Nominees over Trump’s Tax Returns

Senate Finance Committee member Ron Wyden has announced that he will block all of President Trump’s nominees to the Treasury Department.

Wyden says that he is putting the nominations on hold after he says the department has not sufficiently responded to his requests for information about its handling of Democrats’ request for President Trump‘s tax returns. The Senator specifically stated that Brent McIntosh, Trump’s nominee to be Treasury undersecretary for international affairs, should not receive a hearing.

Wyden sent letters to Mnuchin and IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig in May, asking them about Treasury and IRS communications related to House Ways and Means Chairman Neal’s request regarding Trump’s tax returns.
