Donald Trump says the the public release of his tax returns is ‘going to lead to horrible things for so many people’.

A Democratic-controlled United States House of Representatives committee released six years of former President Donald Trump’s tax returns to the public on Friday

in an extraordinary move just days before Republicans are due to take control of the chamber. Release of Trump’s redacted returns for 2015 through 2020 caps a nearly four-year battle

between the former Republican president and Democratic lawmakers that was settled only last month by the US Supreme Court.

It is the latest blow for Trump, 76, who was impeached twice by the Democratic-led House only to be acquitted both times by the Senate.

Earlier this month, the House committee investigating the January 6, 2021, attack on the US Capitol by Trump’s supporters

asked federal prosecutors to charge him with four crimes, including obstruction and insurrection, for his role in the deadly riot.
