Congressional Republicans blocked an attempt by Democrats to force the release of Donald Trump's tax returns to congress.

Rep. Bill Pascrell offered a resolution that would have directed the House to request 10 years of Trump's tax returns, for review by the House Ways and Means Committee in a closed session. The Committee would then vote on whether to send the information to the house.

The resolution would also direct the house to:

Support transparency in government and the longstanding tradition of Presidents and Presidential candidates disclosing their tax returns.

After the bill was read, Pascrell said:

We as a Congress and the broader American public can judge whether his decisions are being made for himself, his business interests, or for the greater good of the American people.

Rep. Mike Simpson ruled that the resolution wasn’t actually privileged and thus would not require action in two legislative days.

Pascrell appealed the ruling, and lawmakers voted on whether to table Pascrell's appeal.

The vote to table the motion was passed by 229 to 185, postponing it indefinitely.

All the 'Aye' votes came only from congressional Republicans, all the 'No' votes came only from congressional Democrats.
