Why are these 23 Congressmen hiding Trump’s tax return?

Today’s news of the Republican campaign team’s many contacts with Russian government during the hacking of the presidential election combined with the news of a Russian spy ship spotted collecting intelligence off the coast of New Jersey today obviously raises many national security concerns. Congress promises to investigate. A simple starting point would be an examination of Trump’s tax returns for Russian connections. Intelligence officials say they have more damaging information but that they distrust the president. Congress has the right to obtain the tax records that are held by the Internal Revenue Service. The action for this request has been filed but ran into a Republican roadblock today.

Today 23 of Republican Congressman voted to not request that Congress see Donald Trump’s tax return even in light of his connection to the suspicious and unusual behavior to defend and protect his relationship with Russia. Most Americans indicate that they do think this information should be made public. All Democratic Congressmen voted to request the tax records. Only the 23 representatives listed below blocked the inquiry:
