The Democratic chairman of the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee, Richard Neal, said on Friday he would rather go to court than pursue contempt charges over the Trump administration's refusal to hand over the president's tax returns.

Asked whether he was considering pursuing contempt charges against administration officials, Neal said in an interview with CNN: "I don't see what good it would do at this particular time. I think that if both sides have made up their minds, better to move it over to the next branch of government: the judiciary."
