John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

House Democrats Issue Subpoena For President Trump’s Tax Returns

Recommended Posts

By Molly Prince -



House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal subpoenaed the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service on Friday in an attempt to obtain President Donald Trump’s last six tax returns.

“After reviewing the options available to me, and upon the advice of counsel, I issued a subpoena today to the secretary of the Treasury and the commissioner of the I.R.S. for six years of personal and business returns,” Neal told The New York Times. “While I do not take this step lightly, I believe this action gives us the best opportunity to succeed and obtain the requested material.”

Neal sent the subpoena to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and I.R.S. commissioner Charles Rettig following Mnuchin’s refusal on Monday to provide House Democrats access to Trump’s personal and business tax returns dating back to the year 2013.

Mnuchin contended at the time that the request was politically motivated. He further argued that turning the documents over would violate taxpayers privacy laws and warned that lawmakers would be vulnerable to the same prying.

House Democrats have been threatening for years to seize Trump’s tax returns — the president notably caused an outcry after he disregarded decades of precedent by opting not to release the financial documents during his 2016 presidential campaign.

Neal initially invoked Section 6103(f)(1) of the U.S. tax code, which authorizes the Chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means to request and receive information from the I.R.S. on any taxpayer. However, there is little precent for utilizing it as a means to probe a president’s tax information

In addition to the most recent Ways and Means Committees subpoena, the Judiciary, Financial Services, Oversight and Reform and the Intelligence Committees also have subpoenas pending, according to the Times. Trump has vowed to fight any subpoena from House Democrats.

The fight is expected to go to the courts if and when Trump ignores the May 17 deadline.
