This administration doesn’t believe in any law that doesn’t give them everything they want and they have many Republican Congresspersons who outwardly and cowardly support that  belief.

Slightly revised Tweet of May 7, 2019:
Seems to me @RepMaxineWaters or @SpeakerPelosi or @jerroldnadler1 should say to @StevenMnuchin "The Sergeant at Arms is behind you. Call who you must to bring @realDonaldTrump's tax returns in the next sixty minutes or spend time in our jail until this committee has them".

Mnuchin Must By Law Provide Trump's Tax Returns

Mnuchin must by law turn over trump's tax returns
 
From The Link:
 

Under Section 6103 of the U.S. tax code, if Neal or Grassley, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee or the head of the Joint Committee on Taxation formally requests a person’s tax returns, Treasury officials “shall” turn the documents over, according to David Cay Johnston, Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist and expert on tax law.

In a recent column for The Daily Beast, Johnston wrote that that section of the federal law doesn’t have any “wiggle room” that would protect Trump’s tax returns from being released.

“There is, however, a law requiring every federal 'employee' who touches the tax system to do their duty or be removed from office,” Johnston wrote.

 

He said that Mnuchin and IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig risk violating another section of the tax code, 7214, that could be punishable by up to five years in prison or removal from public office.

 

"The only thing that man learns from history is that man learns nothing from history."
