President Donald Trump has sued to block a U.S. House of Representatives committee from obtaining his New York state tax returns.
His lawyer accused the Democratic-controlled panel of “presidential harassment.”
His lawyers said, “President Trump was thus forced to bring this lawsuit to safeguard his legal rights.”
Traditionally, U.S. presidential candidates have released their federal tax returns on the campaign trail.
Trump has repeatedly refused to release his tax returns, citing audits.
