BREAKEND NEWS: Trump sues Democrats in Congress and New York to block the release of his tax return
President Donald Trump sued the House Ways and Means Committee and state officials in New York on Tuesday in an attempt to prevent them from obtaining copies of her income tax returns.
The federal lawsuit seeks a cout order prohibiting Empire State officials from using the powers in a new law to give the president's income tax returns to the Washington-led panel in the Democrats.
State tax returns often contain much of the same information as federal returns.

Ways and Means Democrats also waged a separate war against Trump's Treasury Department and asked a court to order the IRS to transfer its federal return.
A federal law authorizes the chairman of the commission to look at the taxpayer's income, but legal analysts have said that such a request must be in the context of a legitimate legislative goal.
An investigation into accusation would be eligible, but the Democrats in the House were unwilling to take that step, fearing to alienate moderate voters and to support conservatives who would fall behind in large numbers in 2020 by Trump.
