Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Supports Tax Marchers, Calls on House Republicans to Bring Transparency Bill to a Floor Vote

In support of local and national participation in the “Tax March” movement, which has gained momentum around the country to demand transparency from President Trump, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) issued the following statement today:

“Every president has a duty to put the interests of the American people first and foremost, and the American people deserve to know whether allegiance to special interests or undue foreign influence might be interfering with that duty.”

Addressing the Hawaiʻi residents who participated in the Tax March events on Oʻahu, Kauaʻi, and Hawaiʻi Island this weekend, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard said, “We need leadership in this country that is committed to setting aside personal interests and serving the interests of the American people.  I thank everyone who took the time to march today to demand the transparency required to ensure our government remains of, by, and for the people.”

Last week, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard signed a Discharge Petition that would force House Republicans to bring HR305 to the floor for a vote. This bill would require the president to disclose federal income tax returns for the three most recent taxable years and establishes civil and criminal penalties for failing to file or falsifying these income tax returns.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is also a cosponsor of Rep. Nadler’s resolution that would require Attorney General Jeff Sessions to turn over any records relating to investment by any foreign government in any entity owned in whole or in part by President Trump. Additionally, the resolution would require the Attorney General to produce documents related to Trump’s failure to create a blind trust for his business dealings and his proposal to instead maintain an interest in his business holdings while turning over the day-to-day operation of those interests to his sons.
