U.S. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin will not release Trump's tax return records

"We are unable to provide the requested information," Mnuchin said in a letter to House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal, who subpoenaed Trump's individual and business returns a week ago and set a 5 p.m. EDT (2100 GMT) Friday deadline for their delivery.
Mnuchin reiterated his contention that Neal's panel lacks a legitimate legislative purpose for obtaining the tax returns, a claim Democrats reject.
