One state legislature is doing everything it can to hurt the president and its latest vote is no different.
The Democrat-controlled state Assembly and Senate of New York has voted to make it easier for U.S. congressional committees to obtain President Trump’s tax returns.
While voting did fall along party lines with Republicans opposing the legislation as an abuse of power, the Democrat majority allowed for the motion to pass. It will now go before Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo where it will most assuredly get approved.
“New York has a unique role to help head off the constitutional crisis brewing between Congress and the White House over refusal to comply with the request for Donald Trump’s tax returns,” the bill’s sponsor, Senator Brad Hoylman, shared with the Times-Union. “We are affirming Congress’ role as a co-equal branch of government and the sacred constitutional principle that nobody is above the law, not even the highest elected official in the land.”
