How to Slow-Walk Something  (Posted: 13 April 2019)
@kylegriffin1: The House Ways and Means Committee set a new deadline of April 23 for the IRS to hand over Trump's tax returns.

Chairman Richard Neal warned that "failure to comply" with the deadline would be interpreted as a denial of the request.

Is there a legal reason for this? Such as: "You shall send two letters demanding X before you can proceed to the issuance of a subpoena, for I am the LORD"? Because it's extremely difficult to fathom why the House Ways and Means Committee would allow such a blatant and **illegal** disregard of their original request unless there was a legal reason behind politely asking again.

I am slightly bemused that all the people who just until last Thursday were complaining that the Mueller investigation was “unconstitutional” and a “witch hunt” are now going to appeal to its sudden authority and claim that a lack of new indictments is a legally binding rule, definitive and should be respected.

Of course.
