Pelosi praises court ruling on Trump's tax returns

United States House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday hailed today's ruling made by a federal appeals court, according to which a House panel was allowed to gain access to former US President Donald Trump's tax returns.

The Democrat-controlled House Ways and Means Committee has been trying to obtain information about Trump's tax returns since 2019. The ex-head of state argued that the request was political in nature and that it should be dismissed on those grounds.

"We look forward to the IRS complying with this ruling and delivering the requested documents so that Ways and Means can begin its oversight responsibilities of the mandatory presidential audit program," Pelosi said in a statement. Trump has seven days to appeal the DC Circuit Court of Appeals' decision.
