The Internal Revenue Service has already investigated President Donald Trump's income tax returns and has found no fault with them, President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday.
"The IRS investigated his taxes," Giuliani told Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "They exist to come after us if we don't pay our taxes. We know they are damn good, and they are confidential and they don't leak. If they haven't gone after him on taxes, that six-year period, then there is nothing wrong with his taxes. They can't investigate his taxes better than the IRS. They want his taxes to embarrass him."
The IRS on Tuesday did not meet a deadline to turn over the documents, which could prompt House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal to issue a subpoena for them.
Trump has continued to insist he cannot surrender his returns, as they are under audit.
Giuliani also insisted the White House has "executive privilege" and "I wouldn't give them a damn thing" in response to the growing calls for Trump staffers, past and present, to testify before Congress.
He also slammed Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., for not going after former Trump attorney Michael Cohen for committing perjury "at least seven times" while testifying earlier this year.
"If Cummings doesn't go after him, then I would say he has proven he is an illegitimate chairman who is conducting a committee hearing for the Democratic National committee not for Congress," he said. "This is not a congressional hearing. They are making a mockery of a correctional hearing."
