Regarding the House Committee on Ways and Means deadline to hand over Trump's tax returns: Is it warranted?

How long has it been since we had a citizen president who donates his salary to charity, who largely funded his own campaign so he has no large individual donors he owes?

I can't remember.

Here's the trap: In years past The Wall Street Journal sent a complex personal income circumstance to 10 different certified public accounting firms and invariably got 10 different interpretations and tax loads.

What benefit to governance will there be in having a hostile cabal of partisan pontificators leaking charitable donations, medical expenses and other details sopping up major newspaper ink for the next 19 months?

The Fourth Amendment reads, " The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated...."

Don't tax returns represent some of the most personal papers we citizens own?
