He cited the complexity of the matter, and the need to weigh the legality of the request.

Democrats did not expect the department however they have not sketched out their next steps.

Democratic committee chairs announced a probe Monday into President Trump's nascent plan to ship illegal immigrants away from the border and release them into sanctuary cities, calling the proposed move "alarming".

A methodical approach has been adopted by neal to seeking the yields of Trump.

The Treasury Department and the Internal Revenue Servicedid not meet House Democrats' deadline to turn over President Trump's past tax returns by Wednesday, escalating what will likely culminate in a legal battle in the investigation into the president's personal and business finances.

Trump had told reporters before Mnuchin sent the letter that he "would love to give" the returns, but would not do so while he was under audit, a stand he long has taken.

Neal continued,"To be able to fairly make that determination, we have to get President Trump's tax returns and also examine whether the IRS is taking out its responsibilities".

Rep. Kathleen Rice, D-N.Y., chairwoman of the House Homeland Security subcommittee on border security, facilitation and operations, said in an interview that Miller needs to come before her panel to "make his case for these awful policies to the American people instead of being this shadow puppeteer".

Mnuchin suggested in testimony to Congress last month that he would shield the privacy of Trump if the House Democrats requested his tax returns. The president's outside attorney also did not respond to a request for comment.
