When any citizen files their tax forms, they are subject to IRS scrutiny that can lead to fines and/or criminal charges (“Trump tax returns revealed: $1 billion in losses in 10 years, eight years with no payments,” Web, May 7). When/if that occurs, it becomes public record. Why, then, does our Congress push to divulge that which is a very private matter to all citizens? If any laws have been broken, our IRS is the body that determines it and leads the subsequent investigation. To my understanding, we have zero evidence of this.

If our Congress wants to really do its job, it should look at the laws it passed. I would suspect that we might find that what Congress is complaining about stems from the laws it passed. That, to me, is the more glaring example of incompetence.
