Rep. Susan Davis: GOP Can Try to Block Trump Investigation, but this Issue is Not Going Away
Congresswoman Susan Davis (D-San Diego), a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement on House Republicans killing a House Resolution this evening that would make President Trump’s financial documents public. Davis is a cosponsor of H. Res. 111, a resolution of inquiry by Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) that would direct the Attorney General to send the House documents relating to Trump’s financial practices, or any criminal or counterintelligence investigations of the President.
“The House GOP can try to block an investigation into the President’s financial dealings but this issue is not going away. The American people have a right to the truth. The potential of Russia’s grip on the White House and this President is a serious national security concern that needs to be investigated.
“For decades, Presidents have released their tax returns to the American people. The fact that this President has refused has raised serious questions, especially in light of his ties to Russia. If there is nothing there, as he claims, then why not release the tax returns?
“House Democrats will continue to use all legislative tools at its disposal to press this issue to uncover the truth.”
