White House pulls nomination to lead ICE head

A House committee chairman formally asked the IRS Wednesday to provide six years of Trump's personal tax returns and the returns for some of his businesses as Democrats try to shed light on his complex financial dealings and potential conflicts of interest.

Mr Trump has refused to release his tax returns since taking office, claiming that they are under audit and therefore can not be disclosed.

Neal has set April 10 as the deadline for the IRS to fulfill the request.

Neal continued, "In order to fairly make that determination, we must obtain President Trump's tax returns and review whether the IRS is carrying out its responsibilities".

Trump, who plans to visit the border at Calexico, California to view a border wall project, said that media coverage this week had prompted Mexico to act to curb the flow of immigrants to the United States and take other action to ease the pressure on USA ports of entry.

In a tweet Thursday, the president panned the Democrats' week of demands as "the highest level of Presidential Harassment in the history of our Country", repeating a phrase he has often used to describe Congress' constitutionally mandated oversight of the executive branch.

The committee also authorized Cummings to issue a subpoena for White House Personnel Security Director Carl Kline to testify regarding the committee's probe into the White House security clearance process. Now he may have no choice but to give them up. Democrats have been promising a full investigation into Donald Trump's finances since Trump first took office, and activist groups have only clamored more forcefully for Trump's tax returns in the wake of the Mueller report, which dashed their hopes of a quick and easy impeachment.

During the election, Trump broke the long-standing tradition of presidential candidates releasing their tax returns, saying they were under audit.

Mr. Neal said being under an audit doesn't cut it as an excuse.

"This has nothing to do with the Mueller report", Kildee said.

He has constantly refused requests to do so, claiming the returns are under "audit".

President Donald Trump on Thursday retreated from his threat to immediately close the US southern border with Mexico to thwart illegal migration, instead telling Mexico it has a year to curb the flow of illicit drugs and surge of migrants to the United States or he would impose tariffs on cars it was exporting to the U.S.

Financial disclosure has become an issue in the Democratic primary, with several Democrats already releasing their tax returns, including Senator Elizabeth Warren of MA.

It is certain that the President would see any decision by Mnuchin to get involved and comply with Neal's request as a flagrant personal betrayal.

"Congress should also ensure Customs and Border Protection officials receive the resources they need to reduce the excessive wait times affecting legitimate trade and travel across the border", said Neil Bradley, a top official with the Chamber in a statement.

The Trump administration on Thursday sent paperwork withdrawing the nomination of longtime border official Ron Vitiello to lead Immigration and Customs Enforcement, according to three people with knowledge of the move.

During the dramatic hearing before the House Oversight Committee, Cohen further questioned the existence of the President's audit. "If the president insists that he is above the law and directs that the unequivocal mandate be ignored, we should move forward immediately with legal action".
