Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK), who has been critical of President Trump and his administration at times, told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that he is not prepared to support a subpoena of President Trump’s tax returns at this time.
Cotton cited an unprecedented level of cooperation from the Trump administration involving the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election as his reason for not supporting a subpoena.
Stephanopoulos asked Cotton if he would support Sen. Susan Collins’ (R-ME) calls to subpoena President Trump’s tax returns to see what possible ties the president might have to Russia.
“George, I think that’s getting ahead of ourselves at this point. We’ve been given extraordinary access to the intelligence underlining the intelligence community’s assessment about Russia’s activities in our political system last year,” Cotton told Stephanopoulos.
Cotton went on to say, “that wasn’t done by the Obama administration, I would point out. That was done by the Trump administration. So far, the level of cooperation with our review is something deeper and richer than I have seen in my time in Congress.”
“I think we should proceed with the materials we have at hand before we make the decision whether we need to go on to additional materials,” Cotton concluded.
