Requiring the disclosure of a president’s federal income tax return would make the public aware of any conflict of interest and encourage presidents to divest themselves of anything that may create a conflict.
It’s wrong for Congress to require any individual to publicly disclose their tax return, even if they are the president or their spouse. Moreover, this is a partisan bill that the sponsor didn’t care to introduce during the current administration.
