"Now we proceed to the limited options that are left on both sides," Neal said, which would be either a subpoena or a court challenge. U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Monday denied a leading House Democrat's request for Trump's tax returns, setting the stage for a lengthy court battle between lawmakers and the Trump administration.
In a May 6 letter, Mnuchin told Neal he would not comply with the Democrat's April 3 request, saying it lacks "a legitimate legislative purpose." Neal said he would have a final discussion with House lawyers on how to proceed later on Thursday and "as I’ve noted, by the end of the week, we’ll make a determination."
