Editor's Note

The Democrats have finally got their way. A House of Representatives committee has voted to make public six years of Donald Trump's tax returns after a long legal battle. The Washington Post reports.

The House Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday voted 24-16 to release Trump's tax returns, capping a protracted legal and political battle that began when Trump was in the Oval Office.

Democrats have for more than three years pushed to make Trump's tax returns public, and the documents were finally made available to the Ways and Means Committee late last month after the Supreme Court denied a last attempt by Trump to withhold the records.
